    one could argue that it's the most impressive streak of wins in cajuns sports history.

    He was very consistent with low and away. High and tight a few times left me scratching my head.

    And goodness, the homer announcer. But when we took the lead late, they forgot Lafayette a few times...lol. I guess you'd rather lose to Louisiana than a hyphen school.

    Crowd was LIVE tonight. On post game, Bab said the Arizona coach met him for coin toss and was so impressed with the atmosphere he wants to come back this fall to learn from us about creating atmosphere. Pretty cool
    Two of Zona's coaches were filming the crowd in the Grandstand for the 7th inning stretch and the 8th (Sweet Caroline). They looked in awe.

    Btw, I tried to send the governor a shrimp Poboy.

    Coach Harvell was trying to scout our game but our fans were distracting him plenty.

    I didn't think the commentator was that bad. People almost always pull for the under dog in a game without a routing interest. i thought he kept talking about how good and powerful the Cajuns are and Princeton was playing great to hang with us. Especially their pitcher.

    I thought it was nice hearing us being talked about as a storied program and a big favorite rather than a Cinderella.

    Check KATC for their wonderful coverage on that great game of ours last night. You won't be disappointed! Oh wait, yeah you will because the top stories were reserved for our big brother to the east. Not one mention of our win last night.

    DMO can pitch again tonight if needed. He didn't throw many pitches. He could prob pitch 2 innings tonight is necessary depending on how he feels. Carter is another story. He is burned until Monday IMO.

    They are looking for a coastal school to add to the PAC. LOL.

    Agreed, Good thing is Leger is our workhorse and we still have Bacon, Harris, Charp, and Huval. No doubt that tonight is gonna be a really tough game so home field is gonna play a big part. I'm trusting that our fans will know how to juice themselves up just right and make the Tigue electric.

    They could sew up two significant bodies of water by adding the Cajuns.

    Tom Holliday (color commentator) was the head coach at Oklahoma State in the late 90s-early 2000s and had one CWS appearance. He spent three years as pitching coach at Texas and then several years in the same capacity at NC State. He was Auburn's pitching coach in 2015 and moved to the booth when Auburn made their coaching change during the off season.

    If you don't like what you're hearing on ESPN3, you can always work to sync the broadcast and turn the sound down. Just sayin :-)


    Bab and I agreed the Princeton pitcher did as good a job locating as any pitcher we've seen this year. Guy threw the ball where he wanted it almost every time. Cajuns beat a VERY good arm last night. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    ---
    Home plate umpire got a lot of grief from me last night. He was NOT good. Inconsistent as hell. Definitely not NCAA Tournament caliber. Carter should have been out of that inning when Princeton took the lead. And he called a terrible pitch a strike on a 2-1 pitch to Sensley. Among other things.

    ---
    Arizona is really freaking good. We're going to see a lefty tonight, JC transfer. I was very impressed with the Wildcats.

    ---
    There were rumors Governor Christie was a diva. But he insisted on sitting in the stands with the Princeton fans. Looked like he had a good time, too.


    And no, ESPN isn't doing the Lafayette on purpose. A previous poster was correct. The guys who build graphics are entry level guys who don't make much more than minimum wage. If they were serious about LAF they would have done it on all the graphic regionals. Those guys don't know any better.

    I think his credentials are what made some of the things he was saying even more peculiar.

    I'm pretty sure one of his sons is the current Ok. State coach, and the other is Cardinals OF, Matt Holliday.

    And I thought he was very complimentary of us. Sounded like he was excited just to see Princeton making it an interesting game. And made many comments about how we were going to pull away at some point but was giving Princeton credit for hanging in there with us.

    And the Powers kid was impressive as hell. That kid can really pitch.
