    I've been very close to the program over for the past 4 years. There has never been a bigger oxygen thief than TR. He's a terrible baseball coach, and a horrible human being. The guy carried personal insecurities into the dugout and kids smelled that crap a mile away. This is my 3rd post and my first thread so I'm keeping it PG-13. Feel free to chime-in on your feelings about TR.

    You are not restricted to PG-13 language. Todd Raleigh eats shit for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    I have no problem with players getting dog-cussed by coaches. Something pretty awful has to get said for it to cross my line. That said, Raleigh crossed it. I'd like to see him take one to the face from an aluminum bat.

    It's really a shame his asshole wasn't covered in kerosene and thrown in the unemployment line after last season.

    I just want to know why in the world he's torpedoing whatever career he has left by going to the NCAA trying to throw UT under the bus.

    I think that if you watched any games he coached for UT in his career, you understand that he does not think. At all.

    No kidding! How in the hell can he feel jaded or as if he got the short end of the stick. 3 years of carte blanche and 1 to make B'ham. He's a limp-stick individual.

    He must actually think his record at UT combined with having Leggett stains on his chin, will get him a decent job somewhere regardless of trying to rat-out the program.

    He may realize he's [uck fay]ed as far as a job goes and he wanted "hush money" from Tennessee.

    He's one of the dumbest people I've ever met. True story.

    He started in with all his "gorilla ball" bullshit on the radio with me one night. I asked him what happened if you can't get the ball out and you have to create scoring situations and there was 20 seconds of dead air.

    Danny Clark, who is the chief BSer that I know, once called him out in the middle of a coaching clinic with a comment he made on pitching. Raleigh spent the next 5 minutes trying to prove his own logic, yet made Danny's point for him. The entire room had multiple coaches chuckling. He's a joke.

    I'm not surprised in the least. He doesn't know shit about pitching or pitchers.

    Or baseball for that matter.

    Not many respectable guys were coming with the APR situation in shambles from Delmonico's mess. Hamilton, of course, also listened to the wrong folks when getting recommendations.

    Possibly but I give that honor to Green or as hat calls him, Uncle Jed.

    I'd say it's a resounding yes, from my perspective.

    Hamilton must be real proud to look back and realize Bruce Pearl wasn't even the biggest scumbag he hired. Amazing.
