Berkman or Bust
Based on the recent departure of coaches and the decommitments it is safe to say that Rice baseball needs something drastic to turn around the direction the program is headed in. While we made it to the regional championship game that should not be enough for people to be content with the state of the program. A 33-31 season should never be good enough. Just because it is a winning season does not mean it is a successful season based on the standards we have created for ourselves.

If Lance is in fact hired, I hope they use this photo for his Bio and press release.

It looks like he is re-enacting the scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom where the high priest removes the sacrifice victim's heart...

There has been one-- singular; not plural-- decommit (of a recruit 2 years out) and that was due to Van Hook leaving (as the kid has yet to visit campus).
