I think “the bullpen hasn’t been good so we shouldn’t use them,” is the hottest take in the history of this board. I hope our 4 starters are ready to throw 140 pitches every week for the rest of the season.
Yup. If FSU strings together four or five hits while the starter is approaching 90 pitches, just let him ride. We will save the bullpen for blowouts.

Of course, your statement ignores the fact that the head coach is responsible for having all of the right pieces so that the in-game performance is good more often than it's bad. How long has Gino been in charge of recruiting this time around?
Again, you're purposefully conflating recruiting with managing in order to mislead. Like usual.

His game day role as manager means he can't play with that **** about recruiting and developing. He has to make the decision, here and now, about what's best.

You want to have philosophical arguments about 2012 in the middle of a game.

You can only manage what you recruit and develop. If you have to leave your starter out there because you can't trust the bullpen, then you can blame yourself as the recruiting coordinator as you lose the game. Not having good players isn't an excuse in the 5th inning at the college level.

Closer is an ambiguous term this year. Federman struggled, failed, and only then did Veliz begin warming up before swooping in and ending the inning, but the damage was done. Put away the stupid pills.
Gates was the closer until he proved he couldn't do it. Then Federman, etc.

That's why you play those games like that. To figure out what you've got.

Because there isn't a fall program.

Again, you're busy trying to place blame about stuff that happened years ago while he's managing a game.

You can afford to do that sitting on your ass at home.

It doesn't matter if he failed yesterday or three years ago. Not having reliable pitchers is his fault. This is college baseball, where you have to build your own team.

Again, as usual, you'd rather place blame then acknowledge that he's managing a situation in-game.

He can't sit there and lament recruiting or developing.

This might be your most tone deaf moment yet and that's saying a lot.

If Gino and JD know what they are doing, they know what they have before game one.
I love the perfect record that all of the armchair coaches have on this forum.

You always do the right thing.....while scratching your nuts and getting another beer.

He's managing his own failures. And he mangled the pitching change anyway. He was 2-for-2.

College coaches know on February 1st who can throw strikes and who can't.
