I am sure this has been said already, but I am disappointed with our record in baseball the past couple of seasons. I know that private schools have a harder time getting players, because of scholarship limitations and cost to attend the university, but Vanderbilt, Stanford, Rice, etc get great players. I know they have bigger endowments, but we certainly have a large enough endowment that we could throw some aid to our baseball players. Maybe the coaches should focus on getting players that can qualify for financial aid or scholarships as well, to supplement the athletic aid. This could lead to us getting better players. Please share your thought.
And as has been said, based on the basketball hires, it looks like Haden is making some good hires. But don't expect a coach until the end of the active season.

Stanford does so well because of their ridiculous endowment. I think any student there whose parents make less than a certain amount get a full ride scholarship. So players can get partial scholarships and have the rest paid by the university if they meet the requirements. I know Haden is trying to do something like that which would help us out a lot.
I don't understand how that doesn't violate the scholarship rules...
because they offer it for ALL students at Stanford and not just scholarship athletes. That's why it's ridiculous that they have such an advantage from their endowment. I'm not entirely sure how this whole process works, but this is what a student who works under Coach Hubbs told me.
Not for nothing but Haden had a year to find a good coach. He interviewed two candidates and hired the volunteer. It was a ridiculous effort.
Hiring Enfield is certainly indicative of improvement in Haden's effort.
Hopefully we'll see something similar with the baseball team.
I think Stanford uses a number of academic scholarships on athletes. If you have 4 Bsb players on academic money, it doesn't count against your athletic rides (if I'm understanding it correctly).
USC Track & Field:
29 NCAA Titles | 1020 All-Americans | 184 Olympians
Well that seems unfair...
Pretty sure it doesn't work that way.
The academic scholarships have to be legit so no rules are broken. (as far as I know) We could do the same thing here at USC, don't know why we don't.
doesn't work like that. This should explain everything better.

Yep -- under $100K annual income means a free ride to Stanford (and a few of the Ivies, I think).
It really doesn't address athletes on academic scholarships (I'm assuming they're counted differently). But this is a great explanation of how their scholarships are funded.
