That's not entirely accurate. The State (I know, I know) says they had multiple sources telling them we actually had a good chance to land him. But he decided to stay put after winning the CWS. Which is not surprising.

The ONLY people who were even mentioning O'Sullivan were fans and media.

Honestly who cares about KOS? The majority of us never thought we would land him anyways.

I like the way that Tanner goes about his business - he takes his time, looks at every aspect, then makes his decision based on the total deal, not just the coach's name recognition.

But because he flies under the radar, that leads to a lot of speculation and second guessing. Like the KOS thing - he will be the baseball coaching search equivalent of Tom Herman, regardless of whether the discussion ever got serious. But I think Tanner should be judged on the end results, not who he looked at or talked to.

Yes, Holbrook did not work out, but it was not necessarily a bad call. If Schmidt or Johnson had stayed healthy, you would be talking about a team that would have made the regionals this year and been very dangerous, and Chad would still be the coach. Kinda like how Boom got canned at UF after a long series of injuries derailed what could have been a good 4th year.

But Ray learned from his mistake and hired someone that was a successful assistant and had head coaching experience. Solid hire - on to Omaha!

Obviously a lot of people, judging by message boards since June 7.

Well, I think KOS became a hot name on the boards mostly due to false rumors, but I think the KOS discussion was more about the idea that the fans believed we deserved a coach that was established and had a successful track record.

We were told over and over again (and even Tanner himself said it to the media) that we are a top job and could attract big-time coaches. I think Kingston will be a good coach. His personality seems to be a good fit, and it looks like his teams do a lot of the important things well. Only time will tell, but in the present I just find this hire to be a real head-scratcher simply because we were told that we are a destination program for coaches.

When the discussion about firing Holbrook really picked up, I never really believed we would get a top-tier coach. I don't think we are the destination program that everybody thinks we are, and to me, this hire was a reality check on that fact.

Again, I have no problem with Kingston himself. I think he can be a very good coach in time, and I don't even mind Tanner taking a risk on a young up-and-comer. I guess the big problem I have is that the people within and around the program made us out to be this gigantic head coach magnet that we aren't. That's pretty frustrating after a month of reporting on whether we were going to get Schlossnagle, KOS, O'Connor, Corbin, etc.

Like everyone else, I get tired of the negative slant The State always takes, but the fact remains they are usually the first ones to break news locally -- not GCC, TBS or even these message boards. They broke the SOS resignation, the Muschamp hire, and IIRC the Frank Martin hire, to name a few.

So again, I hate their negativity towards my Gamecocks. But they tend to have good and reliable sources when it comes to things like this. I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree that the KOS talk was all just fabricated by the media and fans.

For the record, I think Kingston is a solid hire and has the opportunity to do some big things here.

Go Cocks!!!

I agree...

...and we saved about a million bucks by not hiring KOS, but I'm sure that had nothing to do with it.

Well of course. I would not expect the AD of the school looking to hire, or the coaching target himself, to say anything until a deal was struck.
