Re: Why is everyone ok?
Trust the coaches to do their jobs. The team will be OK.
It's more of a systemic issue with the way that baseball is structured having 35 players who are splitting up 11.7 scholarships. Attrition is expected with guys moving on to make room for the next recruiting class. If you aren't playing and only getting 25% of a scholarship, that makes the decision easier for the coaching staff and the player.
The number of LB players in the portal is a little high, especially because most of them were recruited by Valenzuela (there might be a few guys older who Buckley recruited), but it's not unexpected to have quite a few players in the portal after a season that didn't meet expectations.
Why is everyone ok with the mass defections in baseball, but you constantly rip the basketball program if they lose a couple?
Which of these folks made it possible to have the "magical" Dirtbag season concluded not so long ago? Which would we really want back?
LB has seventeen players in the transfer portal
In addition to those guys, LB has five more listed to go in the first 10-12 rounds of the MLB draft.
