|I called out Dan McConnell at Louisville in my article today -- I think what he's done in two years at Louisville is amazing. Kevin O'Sullivan at Florida is pretty similar in that regard. But the best coaches at this are the ones you've heard the most about -- Wayne Graham, Jim Morris, Pat Casey, Mike Fox. I think Dave Serrano and Jim Schlossnagle are proving they belong in that mix, and I really like what Tim Corbin does at Vanderbilt. (Bryan Smith)|

I can however, give you Bryan Smith's take on college pitch counts: No, not significantly. Starting pitchers are not pitching more, college baseball is still a once-a-week activity for starting pitchers. What I think we'll see done, though, is the average IP for a freshman go way up if we ran the numbers -- coaches are just seeing far more demand to use an entire pitching staff. So what that will mean is in 2010, you'll have a host of pitchers with more innings on their arms than they might have had before the uniform start date. Rice's Wayne Graham is still going to throw his weekend starters 120 pitches per game, but the start date is not doing any more damage on those pitchers than it did a year ago.
Attrition for the back-end arms is the biggest consequence, to put it more succinctly. (Will Carroll)
