Not sure if I read your post correctly, but I for one, as a critic of Coach Smith, am exceptionally pleased that ASU has dismissed him. Although both Pat Murphy and Pat Casey would have been my top choices as replacements, I acknowledge that this was a fantasy.
There were references previously, by other posters, about facebook sites where there was solid support of CTS. That may be, but I can honestly say that I don't believe there was anyone on this Board who either supported CTS, or even said - gee, we really should give him more time.
But Bloomquist is a solid hire, who I believe will hit the ground hard, and light a fire under the competitive spirit. He has the resume and character bona fides. In a way, he is equivalent to CBH - a player with a deep roots in the sport. Did you know he was a HS QB? I think he will develop into an outstanding coach, and will be accountable. He will need help with recruiting, but he will catch on quickly. There is discussion of retaining Kelly and Earley - I will accept CWB's decision either way.
My expectations are restored for ASU baseball, and I trust this is a widespread sentiment.
