The place to talk about the Florida State Seminoles
The place to discuss general topics outside of Florida State
You have no favorite boards.
please make him go away...
I think he is gone. Could this also indicate that MM is retiring and Meat will take over?
Something tells me that MM would fall on a sword before firing Jamey..but Meat would go in another direction.
What tells you that MM wouldn't let Shouppe go?

FSU's Shouppe plans to make statement Thursday
By Jim Lamar Democrat associate editor
June 15, 2011
Florida State associate head coach Jamey Shouppe told the Democrat he plans to make an announcement Thursday about his future with the Seminoles' baseball program.
Shouppe would not address rumors that he will no longer be on the FSU coaching staff.
"I will have a statement tomorrow," Shouppe said late Wednesday afternoon.
FSU director of athletics Randy Spetman said Wednesday afternoon that he was not aware of a change Shouppe's status.
"I am the person who hires and fires coaches at Florida State University and I have not been asked," Spetman said.
Shouppe, 50, completed his 21st season on Mike Martin's coaching staff earlier this week after the Seminoles were eliminated from the NCAA tournament by Texas A&M.
Shouppe has served as FSU's recruiting coordinator since 1990 and pitching coach since 1992; he was promoted to associate head coach nine years ago.
Though Shouppe had coached numerous All-Americans and high draft picks - including left-hander Sean Gilmartin this season - the Seminoles' pitching staff has struggled as a whole for much of the past two years.
FSU finished sixth in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a 3.81 team ERA this season, and the Seminoles never could settle on a weekend rotation. Of the pitchers who started at least five games, only Gilmartin finished with an ERA below 4.00.
The Seminoles posted a team ERA of 4.39 last season - fifth in the ACC - and also issued more walks than any other team in the league.
A native of Chattahoochee, Shouppe played two seasons at FSU (1981-82) after a two-year playing career at Wallace Junior College in Dothan, Ala.
He was an eighth-round draft pick by the Houston Astros following his senior season. He played three years in the Astros organization before retiring from baseball in 1985.
To quote Hawk Harrelson... "He gone!"
Adios, Sianora, GTFO
Should help the baseball program but from what others have said the talent is severely lacking in pitching on our roster so I hope we get bell and he does work
I would like to release a statement that I will release a statement tomorrow
The lead on tos is that he is stepping down today.
