The Vandy schollie situation is just an excuse. That school costs 5 times more than most state schools that have the benefit of lottery scholarships. Most other private schools have the same thing in place. You don't see them winning in baseball. Because of the cost, Vandy can't bring in 50 to 60 players in the fall and hold open tryouts like state schools can. Vandy does not just give the money away, the kids have to show they need it. Trust me, I know. My kid wanted to go there and they wanted him, but we could not afford it. Our contribution was too much and he ended up elsewhere. And he is not alone. They have to turn away many kids each year. Otherwise they just go after the top 50 or so guys and take the first 15 that committed. They do not. They have several guys in every class that are not even top 100. As much as I don't like them, they do not have an advantage. If they did, the NCAA would do something about it. But the NCAA is too damn stupid to just fix it all by just making it a fully funded sport. But that makes sense so will never happen.
This is really off base. I can’t speak for your situation but can speak to the fact that many key contributors on this vandy team aren’t on baseball money and aren’t paying much for tuition.

Yea he admitted he makes too much money for it to have helped him. That means his boy wasn’t good enough either because it’s the families that don’t qualify for the need based aid that get the 11.7

That guy that threw 313 pitches in one day, wow.

My dad (RIP) was a Michigan grad (and a huge Tennessee fan) so that is my team this week.
Watching Henry's grandfather in the stands last night, he appeared stoic & like he wanted to get back on the mound. 313 innings IN ONE day is phenomenal.
