He had a team of alpha males such as Nate Nelson that probably made that decision a little easier

    Right, I wasn't criticizing it. Explaining what I remembered.

    Understand. Not sure why the other poster brought up potential mismanagement. Robe made so many personnel and tactical adjustments during our WS run. He and his players were phenomenal. Arguably the most enjoyable run in the history of Cajun athletics.

    And to complete the story.... The decision to start Andy had already been made... The coaches wanted by in..... Andy's fastball could not break a plane of glass,,, I think Justin Gabriel had pitched game 1...Fast ball pitcher.... Dohman... fast ball pitcher.... the coaches felt Andy's change up would throw Carolina off stride... it did.... the Dohman fulfilled his promise

    The man (Tony) knows baseball....and psychology

    Ok guys... the debate is over... especially after we just relived the build up to the CWS 2000 run...
    ... we keep Robe. Someone call Robe and let him know.

    That was almost 20 years ago if he does not make it back in the next 4 time to get the retirement papers ready

    I thought you already had them ready. CWS appearances are not the litmus test for success. Regional births and advancing to SR is the goal. CWS is a byproduct of that.

    If we do not have a significant postseason run over the next four year I think your minority view will become the majority view.

They may fall off. I may be totally off base, but I doubt it. We have our chance. We can either accept status quo (few regionals every handful of years) or we can nut up and get back to Omaha.

    You're right. It's okay to expect to be a top 25 program. It's also silly to say we outdo 260 teams. Virtually all those teams don't have the history or resources to compete at an elite level.

    Guy I work with is a huge South Carolina fan. He talks all the time about how "LALA" was the scrappiest bunch of hard nosed SOBs to walk on that diamond all year.

    I wonder in Simoneaux is still capable of recruiting Nathan Nelsons and coaching players to hit like that team did? He is at a high school now, but he can't be worse than what we've got.

    Simoneaux doesn't want to work that much. I am not saying that to be insulting to him at all.

    Yep... another story from that Super.... When they arrived for game one, the SC fans were doing their best a&m@br fan imitations so the team bus pulled up to a side entrance.... Nate nelson (again) says fug em.. we are going in the front door....

    Yes nostalgia.... and yes the dinosaur named Tony Robichaux is and always will be the man
