Probably not too surprising in a coaching change.

Are they looking to go by Erie again or are they sticking with Penn State-Behrend?
Title: Re: Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference
Post by: hank stein on July 17, 2007, 08:36:36 pm
I would agree the FSU probably had the best recruiting class. Rumor has it their top pitchers may be leaving and the top tier of their recruiting class may be going elsewhere. FSU apparently had a lot of out of state recruits committed to play (NH, NJ, RI, Ga and NH), but who knows.

If FSU's recruiting class falls apart, I would say Erie then Penn State.

What??? Never heard of such a thing. NO assistant coaches. Do they really expect to retain their title of league champs? The AMCC teams must be licking their chops. I wonder how the fall workouts will go. It will not take any time for other AMCC  programs which have great coaches to suprpass FSU-quickly.

What are FSU's top tier recruits doing. FSU's recruits Collier, Sutcliffe, Oberman and Guarino are all DI players, are they still goin to FSU. I saw these guys last summer. FSU will be hurting if they jump ship, and other vetern players depart.

This has to be good news for Behrend, Erie and La Roche

Rumor has it Krsolovic is 100% out, which is interesting. They really did not have to bad of a recruiting year.

Two (2) names popped up as possible candidates, and one was Frostburg's former coach and another DI coach from South Carolina or North Carolina.

I have not heard anything about Anderson under consideration.

The job is looking to be full-time so that the Storm can put a a good resume up for the D2 commitee.  I'm pretty confident when I say that the Storm players would have a hard time warming up to a Frostburg guy!!!  The Storm has a nice class coming in with some big names out of the local high schools...The Storm won't be a push over team in their last year in the AMCC....That's a fact!

Interesting. Any other teams looking to move to D2. I did not hear much about Storms out of state recruiting, except they were expected to have a good recruiting year for in-state players. I know Behrend stayed mostly local for recruiting and from Frostburg's release, they are bringing in a lot of out of state recruits.

I just could not see Storm hiring a Frostburg coach.

Uh OK.  Frostburg is in a geographic situation that allows them to recruit from Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and even parts of West Virginia and as far as away as New York and New Jersey.

It's not the weather at FSU, I can tell you that much.  We have some wicked nasty winters up there.  But the field is first rate, especially now that the soccer teams can play in the football stadium and don't tear up the outfield by using it for their matches.  Plus we have a nice weight room and some decent majors for athletes.  Not coast majors, but our education department is top notch and the sports medicine program is getting better.

During FSU's coaching transition, will FSU continue its fall game schedule. Its sometimes difficult, but we have in the past during our transition period. From all indication, a few conference teams are looking to increase their fall exhibition game schedule.

I think you can only play one game in the fall-from sources inside the athletic department say that the baseball program is cutting games- No games before spring break and cutting the budget no extra stuff. The program is on the fast track to nowhere.

From what sources tell us in the Frostburg State U ath. dept- three possible replacements have been named and are meeting next week on campus with the search committee. A former coach who was fired once before is rumored to be one of the possible replacements-for the head coaching position
Title: Re: Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference
Post by: hank stein on August 26, 2007, 10:03:52 pm
Sources tell me that they should "really" hire a coach with good credentials, who is ready to build on what they have in order to immediately compete for a D3 championship, otherwise the top 5-7 recruits this year are gone after one year, and recruiting for the next few years will be a mess.

Just by looking at the available talent there already and the recruiting class, a coach with a serious off season program has the ability to compete at the national level, immediately.

I still think that FSU had one of the best recruiting years they ever had in the AMCC, which is potentially bad for the rest of us.

Post by: hank stein on September 06, 2007, 11:18:52 am
Sounds like Guy Roberston had a tough time at Coppin. Judgment should not be passed until one knows "all" of the details. Coaching at some schools is not a glorious adventure.

----------------------------------------

BALTIMORE (Map, News) - “Due to recent occurrences within the athletic department I have decided to resign as baseball coach at Coppin.”

With that brief statement at the top of a letter last summer, Guy Robertson wrote off an entire season of Coppin State baseball. At least, that’s what some associated with the program think.

“I feel like it was undermined,” one Coppin State baseball parent said of the program. “If he made a commitment to the institution and the boys, he shouldn’t leave.”

That parent also questioned the mid-summer timing of Robertson’s departure, blaming it for the struggles of this year’s team, which remains winless. That parent, who also accused Robertson of sabotaging the team by getting players to leave the school when he did, provided The Examiner with a copy of a letter, dated July 3, 2006, in which Robertson told his players that he would be leaving to pursue a new job. Robertson is now the director of college recruiting for the Columbia-based Baseball Factory.

People who read this also read:
Coppin State enters ’08 with high hopes
“I’m sorry that anyone feels that way,” Robertson said. “Anybody who played for me, I think that they know I tried to keep the players’ best interest in mind. I’m just sorry that they feel that way. I don’t know what else to say other than that. It’s probably difficult for them to speak. They never worked at Coppin. They don’t know the circumstance.”

This year’s team, 0-36 heading into this weekend’s home series against Florida A&M, carries just 11 players on its roster. While he feels for first-year coach Harvey Lee, Robertson had just 12 players in his first season in 2003, and only one played out his four-year eligibility for the Eagles.

The team’s home field, Joe Cannon Stadium, is located 17 miles from campus. According to one source, the equipment budget in recent years made it difficult to buy baseballs, let alone catcher’s equipment.

Coppin State administrator of athletics, Dr. Mary Wanza, whose department also oversees an 0-24 softball program, declined comment on the baseball team. An athletic department spokesperson relayed a message from her: “I really don’t know much about baseball. I don’t have much to say.”

The team’s new coach, Lee — a former New York Yankees farmhand — is doing his best. Not only is he filling out a lineup card of players in unfamiliar positions, but he’s also trying to build the program from the bottom up. When he was hired in late October, the team didn’t have enough players to field a team.

“I respect Guy as a person, but — this is just me speaking — I don’t respect him as a coach,” Lee said. “If I’m the captain of a ship and my dying day is tomorrow, I’m going to jump off ship and tell everyone to come with me? That’s not right.”

While Robertson attached a letter of intent release form to his resignation letter to players, he said he did not ask anyone to leave with him.

“You can say what you want, but when kids that have been there for three years decide to go somewhere else for their senior season, you read between the lines,” Robertson said. “It certainly has nothing to do with me.”

This is the first in a multi-story series in which The Examiner will look at the struggles surrounding the Coppin State athletic program. Up next: The plight of Coppin State’s current baseball players.

I agree 100%-but as a coach you should not send a letter of release with your own letter-that is for the schools AD to address. At least he is in a better situation at Frostburg.

Right now I would go with FSU as a repeat-they won it the last two years and I think most of the team is back for 08-unless the new coach messes with success. 2. would be Penn State Erie followed by Greensburg and then Altoona if Petulla comes back for his last season.
Title: Re: Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference
Post by: hank stein on September 12, 2007, 08:22:58 pm
I would agree, but it would depend of how quick Frostburg's freshman class can get adjusted to the big show and contribute. FSU's soph./jr/sr class may not be enough. FSU had some good players transfer.

Penn St (2)
Greensburg (3)
Altoona (possibly 4th)

Never leave out Erie or Roche

I am going to go out on a limb: If FSU's soph/jr and current recruiting class stayes in tact and matures (some of these freshman just turned 18), they could make a run for the NCAA III championship (much to my dismay).

However, some other AMCC teams (Erie Roche Penn-Bre)  have some very good returning players and also had a good recruiting class.


Title: Re: Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference
Post by: VJC Baseball on September 14, 2007, 12:38:28 pm
Guy is a quality coach with a quality background and should be able to continue the success at Frostburg that was created previously.  They are also not cutting back on the program that I know of.  They have 2 GA's, and looking to hire an assistant, I believe part-time.  Aaron Main, their ace from last season has transfered to a JUCO, but at last report he injured himself over the summer. 
Title: Re: Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference
Post by: hank stein on September 15, 2007, 03:38:10 pm
From what I heard, Coach Robertson should thank the 2 GA's for keeping the team in tact, especially the freshman recruiting class, who from all indication, probably would have followed McKnight to any school he was hired to coach before the school year started.

Apparently, some schools tried to get some of the fesh/soph to transfer but they refused. I don't think FSU's athletic director or FSU's administration had much to do with that.

If I was FSU's coach, I would keep Sidorowicz and Shields around for a "while".

Where did Main transfer to?
Title: Re: Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference
Post by: VJC Baseball on September 16, 2007, 12:16:01 am
Again, this is my understanding of the information from what I have heard from other coach's and posts:

Guy will be keeping the GA's around, and will be giving them a chance to stay on board with the program.  Again he is a good guy and wouldn't pull the rug out from anyone.  As for Main, I had orginally heard from a friend of his that he was going to Chesapeake CC, but I just learned from a very reliable source he is at Barry U, upon looking at their website he is there as a newcomer.

I don't know much about their recruiting class, what's in tact and what moved on.  I can say we are fairly close and I haven't heard of anyone looking to move from there.  So my guess is they will be keeping their class intact, and returning most of their team.  Anytime you lose a coach and a top 3 pitcher, there is going to be some concern, but they are still probably on top or close in the AMCC.  We'll see!! Season starts in T minus 5 months for opening day (ish).

Frostburg is in trouble. Gitzen (.383, 9 HR, All-Conference), Webb (.400, 8HR, All-Conference 2nd Team), and Holmes (.287, 5HR) - 1/2 of their HR total and 1/3 of their starting line-up - graduated. Burke (.426, 25 extra base hits, 25 SB, 3.75 ERA, .249 BA Against, All-Conference, All-Region (ABCA, ECAC), Rawlings Gold Glove) transfered to Kean. Main (2.84, 78 K, All-Conference, All-Region (ABCA, ECAC))transfered to Barry. Crystal ( .383, 4.35 ERA, 77K in 2006-injured in 2007) may not return. Big loses. And I heard a rumor that Jones is back after missing 2007 for disciplinary reasons. Subtraction by addition?

Title: Re: Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference
Post by: jhcrb on October 28, 2007, 05:28:47 pm
Crystal is going somewhere-but I heard he is not staying at FSU-probably in the AMCC. Unless the young pitchers do well for FSU, I agree that the hitting will be down from last year. They will challenge for the AMCC top spots but after this season, that remains to be seen after Sidorowicz and the other asst. coach leaves.
Title: Re: Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference
Post by: hank stein on October 28, 2007, 05:31:32 pm
I did hear that Frostburg got beat bad and they could be in trouble this spring. I will tell  ya that the recruited freshman class will have to produce (they will have to mature quick). The soph and jr.'s are the potential weak link. The seniors have good leadership.

It was my understanding that one of the freshman pitches may be hurt, and potentially out for the season, and one of the freshman outfielders had some kind of finger injury so he missed a good part of fall practice, but he is expected to be ok I believe.

Whether the players will respond to their new coach will have to be seen.

I think Frostburg's work in the off-season will determine its success in the spring. IT'S A LONG SEASON.

Crystal is not staying in conference. I hear he may be going to Salisbury. Frostburg is having serious issues with games and players. I heard some players were in some off campus trouble. The returning seniors also said they would rather be sponsored by under armour or nike rather than spending the money on 10 extra games. I can't believe they have 40 games now and about 30 will be played. The new president and athletic director over there are tearing that baseball program apart.

Frostburg: WOO. I did not hear about the off campus trouble-what is that all about.

I did hear that one of the freshman catchers Frostburg recruited is not returning and one of their freshman pitcher recruits may be ineligible due to grades. That means at least 2 of their top 5 recruits probably will not be on the field in the spring.

I also heard that other schools are shaking out their freshman also. That first quarter is tough!

I have watched Frostburg close, if Frostburg can develop and keep their freshman, they will be major contenders.

Now that we are almost ready to crank up the season, any last minute news. I did hear that some top teams in the conference may have been hit with player eligibility issues (grades, etc...)???

Any thoughts or opinions on the upcoming AMCC season?  I'm not familiar with the conference and would be interested for some info on what to look for this upcoming season.

    Top Teams: PSU Behrend, Frostburg St., LaRoche, Pitt Bradford, and Pitt Greensburg
    Top Pitchers: Behrend- D. Koerbel (Returning Player and Pitcher of the Year)
                         A. Chrobak, B. Cain

                         LaRoche- P. Avolio, A. Cirocco
                         Pitt Bradford- B. McCracken
                         Pitt Greensburg- M. Zukowski
                         PS Altoona- P. Keith
                         Mt. Aloysius- D. Hutzell-Ellis( If he's still there, may have graduated)
   Top Position Players:
                         Behrend- D. Dubensky,J. Fyffe,J. Gray,G. Lang
                         Frostburg St- J. Clark, J. Kroboth

RC,
     
     Thanks alot for the info, I really appreciate it!  I'm really looking forward to the spring and seeing some good competition.  Good luck to your son and to all the teams this season!  I'll be following the action and checking in here for any insight. 

                                                         Thanks again,
                         
                                                                       Hawk

Ha gang:

It's almost show time.

Hawk,  good luck to your son. It's a great day when you can watch your son play a little ball.

Behrend may be the team to beat, with Frostburg in 2nd. Frostburg has a very young team with a lot of potential.  If Frostburg's sophmores and juniors come to play, Behrend will be in for a battle.

with the release of the new regional rankings, does anyone think the ANCC could get two teams into the Mid-Atlantic Regional?

I doubt it.  Assuming that Frostburg wins the tournament, no other AMCC team has the credentials for a Pool C bid.  If Frostburg doesn't win the tournament, those two tourney losses coupled with a modest 6th regional ranking will probably keep them from at large consideration.  Upsets of Shenandoah and Salisbury might make a difference, but I think it unlikely.

Come out and support the reigning AMCC Champions!

I wish more D# teams would do this. While intra-squad stuff is all right, I would like to see the new kids in game situations against other teams.
