More on Gambino and other links

BC made the Gambino announcement official this afternoon. I like his youth and the fact that he is a BC grad, but I think his biggest asset will be his eye for talent. He has been Virginia Tech's recruiting coordinator and over the past few years the Hokies have upgraded their talent.

Baseball America has a rundown of the other candidates that interviewed and speculates that current assistant Steve Englert will stay on.

Soaring to Glory put together a good Q&A with the College Baseball Blog regarding the Mike Gambino hire. What I find interesting is that the close observers of the baseball are not concerned about the Aoki loss and feel he left the program in worse shape than he found it.

Dr. Saturday thinks we will win the division again.

The National Football thinks that Harris is the 2nd best RB in the ACC.

BC just offered Florida WR Tacoi Sumler.

Regarding the baseball hire, I keep in touch with a few Birdball alumni, and they all loved playing for Coach Gambino when he was there with Hughes.

From what I know, he's a true player's coach and a baseball lifer who is finally getting his due. I have to imagine those close to the program are happy about the hire, and I hope the program stays on the upswing.

Latest update has Sumler's top schools being Oregon, FSU, Clemson, Tennessee, and South Carolina. Nice that we are at least offering and getting into the discussion. Looks like a ridiculously fast playmaker. Man, if we could land him, maybe we would finally be dangerous on punt returns!
