I do not blame anyone for bettering their situation. I can understand changing jobs to spend more time with family. I have done it myself. I just thought it was a bit coincidental that the BBall coaches leave at the same time and the recent records at both programs.
Witt has been middle of the road in baseball as long as I have been paying attention. They would usually finish 3 or 4 the west. occasionally higher. For many years it was always OWU,Denison, and Witt as the top 3 in the west, Then you had Wabash and Earlham. The last couple of years though, Witt has been just plain bad in baseball. They have been losing many recruits to Otterbein, the last couple of years and some of the other schools in mid Ohio. Witts roster used to have quite a few very talented players from central Ohio, but those numbers have dwindle. They still have players from around here but they are many times they are second tier guys.
I know swapping Depauw for Earlham (even though Earlham was very good this year) has shuffled the power in the west, but I did not think Witt would take such a dive. I hope they get a coach soon because this is prime recruiting time. Not so much for calling players but for identifying rising seniors. If they have to wait till the fall they will behind the eight ball.
