So ... over 3,000 comments yesterday, and the only news was that Mizzou probably isn't hiring Tim Floyd. Again, I must say I can't wait to see what happens when actual news comes around. But that's not important here; once again, here's your coaching search-free news zone.
Baseball's had itself a good (mid)week!

What's it feel like not having a head coach?
"It was a little in disarray at first, not having any authority. But we came together as a team and said we need to finish out the semester and finish out the year strong in the weight room and in the classroom."
Have you been told a timeframe for when the new coach will be hired?
"I haven't gotten a timeframe. I'm still as lost as everybody else."
What was your reaction when you first heard the news?
"Coach had called us individually and told us he was going to take the job. It was kind of disappointing, kind of hurtful because of the relationship, your ties and stuff like that. Losing your head coach, you don't know what they're going to do next. You don't know who they're going to have come in. It was just a little disappointing."
4. I'll just leave this here...

I'll say this much: the guy has certainly paid his dues at this point.
