Mike Gillespie gets the last word

A bemusing if not quick story in the OCR's USC Blog

Despite dogged Register columnist Randy Youngman’s efforts, UC Irvine baseball coach Mike Gillespie still won’t disparage his former boss, USC athletic director Mike Garrett.

Gillespie did, however, continue to refer to USC generically as “the place I used to coach.” He also said this about Garrett when Youngman asked if Gillespie thought the AD enjoyed watching the NCAA selection show, which featured UCI as a No. 1 seed:

“I’m pretty sure he didn’t watch it, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t know.”

Zing!

Garrett probably could not care less. That is just how he is.

But it is another example to many of us that Garrett is out of touch with what used to be a pretty solid baseball program. I understood why he let Gillespie go but I never understood why he hired Kreuter and the baseball team results over the past three years have shown why it was a mistake.

And Kreuter will be back next season...in case you are wondering that is part of the reason as to why I hardly cover USC Baseball. I see enough trauma during the day I don't need to witness any more in my free time.

It's like watching a trainwreck...
