A marriage that works

LSU baseball coach Paul Mainieri is getting a lot of accolades these days -- and deservedly so. In just three years, he has the Tigers playing for a national championship.

You can read a good piece in the Omaha World-Herald on Mainieri.

But let's not forget a couple of things.

First, LSU wouldn't be here without Paul Mainieri. If the Smoke Laval Error told us anything, then it was this: Not just anybody could push the buttons and LSU would win in Omaha.

Second, though, Mainieri wouldn't be here without LSU. Yes, Mainieri was a very good coach at Notre Dame.Even got to the CWS. But let's be real here, you're not going to be playing for a national title when it's June before it gets over 70 degrees in your home stadium

So this is a marriage that works for both parties.
