Jody Robinson realizes that he was not Loyola Marymount University's first choice as its new baseball coach. Maybe not even the second or third, for that matter. But Robinson is still excited about the prospect of coaching the Lions. "I realize that some people had to turn the job down for me to get a chance at it," he says. "I realize I wasn't in the original cast of characters. But that doesn't mean that I felt slighted in any way."
