Rice sources indicate they will be moving on from their coach at the end of this season. He would have two years remaining on his contract.
Thank you to the seniors who played their final home games this weekend. A lot of great wins in that bunch. Currently, UH is 17-26 (5-15 conference) overall and a RPI of 209 out of 293. Just one spot ahead of Portland. Team is hitting .245 and team ERA is 5.40. I fear our record could be worse had we played the ECU series. With two series remaining against last place Memphis and average UCF, it is still an uphill battle to finish close to .500. My prediction is winning 5 out of the next 8 to finish at 22-29. This could potentially be the 2nd worst year of cougar baseball in the last 25 seasons. 2012 finished with a record of 18-35-1 (Whitting’s second year).
Anything is possible in the tournament but not sure we have the pitching depth to compete in a long tournament. Facing a ECU, Tulane or WSU to begin will be tough.
