Wouldn't shock me to see Lechnir request a temporary injunction to block UWO from making a new hire. He still wants to stay on and that would force UWO to make their case in a public courtroom.

While in Appleton over the weekend, I talked with a few Oshkosh baseball alums(and personal friends of mine) who all appeared frustrated by two things:

1. That Lechnir was let go and...
2. That Oshkosh is dragging the search out longer than expected...

It seems to me that if they knew that Lechnir was not going to be renewed, they could have got the ball rolling a bit earlier than it appears.

Anyone have a feel for where the program is leaning in terms of a new coach?

Whoa - might be getting a bit ugly in Oshkosh:

Long article and the Univ doesn't look good in it.
What the hell was that?  That was a Drop-kick.  Drop-kick? How much is that worth?  Three points.  THREE POINTS?!

If nothing else Lechnir is crushing the University in the PR battle. It's not even close.

Lechnir will win this and someone will be fired as a result.

From JS Online....

Wauwatosa West pitcher Austin Jones will no longer play at UW-Oshkosh since the program did not renew the contract of longtime coach Tom Lechnir.

"I've been looking at some Division I schools," Jones said. "I talked to Northern Illinois and there's a few other schools that kind of just come into play. I'm still exploring my options, but I'll be done with it soon."

Probably not the first player to leave Oshkosh since news broke, and more than likely not the last....  2014 might be a repeat of 2010 where Oshkosh missed the WIAC Tournament for the only time since the tournament started.

Something clearly is wrong in Titan-land. It certainly appears there's an unusual amount of staff turnover in Oshkosh right now...

Lechnir of course, but UWO doesn't have a press release posted on that.

It appears they are cleaning house one program at a time.

I get putting Stratton in because it fits the pattern but working with him professionally the reason he gave for leaving is legit. Not saying there might not be anything else going on but with his once I read the release I was like "OK that makes sense" in the cases of Francour and Suess though I still have no clue. Suess is a big loss behind the scenes as well as the head of game day events.

I was told tonight that Polcyn is going to ripon with 100 percent certainty and they also got another all American transfer but I have no idea who.  Does Polcyn have to sit out a year?  Any other Oshkosh players transferring?

If he was eligible at the school he's leaving, he does not have to sit out a year.

There are some conferences that have rules about transferring between conference members but there's nothing regarding transfers between schools in different conferences.

Huge loss for UWW - Marty Herum has signed and reported to the Arizona Diamondbacks Rookie League team. What a hitter.
