The LSU Tigers released their 2011 schedule a few weeks ago, which features your typical 56 games (30 SEC and 26 OOC). The interesting part is that they will only leave Alex Box Stadium for two out of conference road games and one neutral site game at Zephyr Field in Metairie, LA. Is it good for College Baseball to have a marquee program play mostly home games? I thought we would take this time to see how different coaches around the country put together their respective schedules.
New UNLV head coach Tim Chambers enters his first season in charge of the Rebels baseball program. He is taking over a program that had a disappointing 2009 campaign as they went 29-29 overall while going 11-13 in the Mountain West Conference.

RENO, Nev. – After conducting a national search University of Nevada head baseball coach Gary Powers has hired former UNLV head coach Buddy Gouldsmith as an assistant coach for the Wolf Pack. Gouldsmith will work with the outfielders, hitters and coach third base for the Pack.
