RE: Paul Janish New Baseball Assistant
Kendall and several others are reporting that Janisch will be the full-time, paid Assistant Coach, replacing Van Hook. If true, that pretty much indicates The OG is going to get a contract extension, or worse yet, no announcement is going to be made in the near future.

Don't forget he played for the Braves! Loved watching an owl play for them even though it was brief.

RE: Paul Janish New Baseball Assistant
Okay, just got the inside scoop...

1. Janisch has been hired as the paid, full-time Assistant Coach to replace Van Hook. He'll be finishing up his degree at Rice concurrently.

2. John Pope has found his niche on the recruiting front and it's starting to pay big time bonanza (as we've seen with the recent spate of commits). From what I'm hearing, since we cannot compete with the schools offering full scholarships to just about anybody, what Pope has started to do-- and found success-- is to go after the quality talent (with strong academic credentials) in poorer neighborhoods; those we can offer full scholarships due to hardship....and it's working.

3. Apparently, the Orioles wanted to keep Janisch in the organization in some capacity (e.g., as a roving middle infield instructor), but he wants to get his degree and provide some stability as his child is entering middle school.

How did we just start doing that? I liked Janisch a lot when he was with the Braves. Don't know much else, but a little surprised by this hire.

Not sure exactly what Walt is referring to about "targeting poorer neighborhoods"....

Sweeny isn't a poorer neighborhood. We have 2 commits from there.

Fredericksburg isn't a poorer neighborhood either.

2nd Baptist certainly isn't poor.

Klein Oak....not poor.

Flower Mound....not poor.

Manvel isn't poor.

The difference is, Pope is just getting after it on the recruiting front.

What I meant to say was he's specifically targeting poorer families whose kids can qualify for full scholarships via hardship. Other schools can augment partial scholarships with merit scholarships. We cannot do that given the high academic credentials of our student body. We are once again succeeding in getting commits because we are finally finding a way to offer full scholarships (by targeting a specific demographic) and, consequently, compete on a level playing field with other programs.

RE: Paul Janish New Baseball Assistant
I've always liked Janish. He was a joy to watch at SS defensively at Rice, and hopefully he can help improve Rice's recent defensive woes.

Janish played high school ball at Cy Creek, so both of the assistants will be from the Cy Fair area. I hope we continue to stress recruiting that district. I also liked the fact that Janish bridges the gap a bit between the David Hall and Wayne Graham eras. Janish played high school ball for Coach Hall when he was coaching Cy Creek (before he had to step down due to the illness that took his life at a very young age).
