I am not sure Timmy is quite over the fact that RW got rid of GDO in the way he did.
    I'm not one to defend Wellman, but he didn't get rid of Diane Dailey or Jen Averill who he didn't hire. They won.

    Here we go again with the George Greer drivel again. Did he buy insurance from you?

    WF is always patient with its coaches. The bottom had fallen out of the WF baseball program when Greer and WF parted ways (Greer's last year at WF in 2004, WF went 17-33 and 4-20 in the ACC; at the time, the worst ACC record in 19 years; there had been a progressive slide to oblivion at the end of Greer's time at WF). Unlike GDO, Greer never coached college baseball again. It was time for George Greer to stop coaching college baseball in 2004. Greer ended up spending time in various MLB organizations, most recently St. Louis. Reff makes it seem like WF fired Tony Larussa when Greer's contract was not renewed in 2004. Just simply wrong.

    Pilch, you are so full of it, you actually smell of the drivel from trying to rationalize this firing Wellman made. So a coach who has won 3 titles in 4 years, 98-99 & 2001 and won over 600 games for Wake Forest is not allowed time to right his own ship? In Wake Forest terms, they did fire a Tony LaRussa type college coach who is in our HOF, given what he had done here with the number of 40 win seasons he had amassed at our school. 2004 was his FIRST losing season in years. You are so so full of crap! So you give any of our current Wellman hires only one losing season and where would we be? Oh, OK, you have no response for that because there is none!

    SO let's move on to Greer's successors--Rembielak had 3 losing seasons out of 5 and an overall .500 record not to mention going 61-87 in the ACC. My, well worth the coaching change, huh? Current coach Tom Walter started with a losing season of 18-37, went to 25-31 [another losing season], then of course the great Super Regional run last season to Florida. But by your rational above, we fell to another losing season this year, 25-32. I guess the bottom has fallen out of Wake Forest baseball. Time for a change using your drivel!

He got introduced to Marlene Jansen, a Playboy centerfold in the 80’s, and the rest is history. He was wasted for the first 3 years of his career IMO.
