    Fired up that Cajun baseball is back.
    I know brother, its been.. "man this is great, but let em get over 1 more hump"..... This was a good weekend. There have been some teams over the last 4-5 years that would have packed it in after Friday night. Not these kids!!!!

    Juxtaposition is the key to this argument--I can't do it but lets put our players side by side and compare--I will do a few---1st base (older and better)---2nd base (older and better)---SS (new and much better)---3rd base (I think new and better)

    Catcher (Playing and better))) ---ok somebody take over that knows a lot more than I!!!

    This team has what it takes to make a regional run, if you can't see that already then you probably haven't attended more than 1 game at the Tigue this year. I've been to every single game except for 1, and we look much different than recent years past.

    I know you're not all negative all the time, but it's funny that you're finding something to complain about when we just took the series from USM at USM, something that would NEVER have happened in the last 5 years. In baseball, you can't win them all.

    Take a small moment to recognize what this team is doing. We are 13-3, be proud.
    13-3 with an rpi of 25, which means we've been playing some great teams. Doesn't matter, he'll still think we played scrubs.

    6 out of our 13 wins have been by 6+ runs. That's total domination. The only bad thing is that when we lose, we lose BIG. Might be the only thing that'll be holding us back from breaking into top 25 this week.

    I can't wait for the series with the hoax this weekend. I hope we drum the dog____ outta them

    Agreed!!! A sweep to start conference would be awesome.

    Im guessing you mean 2011 and 2012... In 2010 those boys fought adversity and finished with an amazing run. If you remember correctly they came up short against Texas and eventually fell to Rice. In 2010 everyone wrote those guys off (including myself) then they won there last 21 out of 23 and swept 4 weekends in a row (something crazy like that). We finally have the passion back that Zach Ozborne, Kyle Olison, Justin Robicheaux, and Chad Keefer displayed. I loved that team in 2010 and this team has that passion and fight mixed with talent and depth.

    I have been very negative towards the program, and in particular Coach Robe over the last couple of years. Although the team had a great start to the season, I was still very skeptical as I did not believe we had played any real contenders, other than LSU. After this weekend, I have to say that I am having a change of opinion. While Southern Miss is not a world beater this year, they are still a very good team, and for our young team to go on the road and man up after a demoralizing loss on Friday, says volumes about the character of the team and the coaching staff. Kudos to the team and coaches.

    Good point; I would expect to see Saturday go to Friday, Sunday to Saturday, and Friday to Sunday; starter wise that is.

    Bloody well right, Scotty!

    Nice turnaround in one year (baseball); not so much in softball, but they will right their ship!

    Your last point is absolutley HUGE! On the road for the first time and get beat up pretty bad on Friday; to come back and DOMINATE, against a team we expect will be pretty good this year.

    Sure wouldn't have done this last year.

    Now let's turn our attention to some ULM beating.
