    2 on, no outs. Predicatable results. That's enough of the garbage, guys.

    Did they not get the throwdown memo? It went out two days ago.

    That's about right. 7 free base runners and 3 hits. Teams love of our bull pen arms.

    Play the chip away game now.

    Should have won this one before it got to the 14th. The play of the game was Braud's diving catch of the liner that doubled up Jam at 2nd.

    After the subsequent @$$ whooping in the nightcap - even using less experienced arms - it is GUT CHECK time. South Alabama this weekend.

    I think some were saying they would be happy with 4-2. At this point, I'd be thrilled with 4-2. Let's get 'em! One at a time.

    I have been saying for a few days now that the team we see on weekends is different than the one we see in mid-week. The numbers bear that out. Let's count the completion of the extra inning game as a weekend affair as it was supposed to be the season opener. With that in mind, the weekend record is 12 and 6 while the weekday record is 2 and 5. At this stage, it almost means the weekdays are exhibitions as RPI is too high to move it down much in remaining games. Winning either the conference regular season title or tournament is needed to get to post season. Fortunately, when Gunner takes the mound he causes the team behind him to be focused. I bet that occurs Friday night.

    Maybe if we get embarrassed enough the mommas will stop hanging around the dugout and the daddys will drop the equipment bags.

    Hopefully Robe called a practice and told them gloves, bats, and balls need to stay in the locker room. And...since we don't like to get on base, flip-flops are allowed this weekend.

    I listened to Bab on the radio mid-February. He said the bench was so deep there were a dozen guys that deserved to start.

    It's a head scratcher.

    In 2009 and 2012, Robe often used the word soft when describing the team. Its his eloquent way of saying "We are a bunch of fn pu$sies." He has been pretty cranky the last couple of weeks. Those at the DC meeting last week could feel his frustration in the delivery of his discussion. It carried over to the presser that went viral. I predict he is going to start calling this team soft (pu$sies) VERY soon.

    As a persistent DC attender, I can back this statement up.

    Honestly, going into the Tech game, I thought I picked up some unexpected uncertainty and lack of confidence of Robe in his team... I chose to blow it off... That was when he went on the rant about how mid-weeks shouldn't count in the RPI (which doesn't make any sense). Kind of like he saw what was coming... A confident coach wants the challenge - anytime. In 2014, he never downplayed midweek games. Back then, it was "all games are weekend games." Because they all count the same in the RPI which determines at-larges and hosting... Where is that mindset?

    I did not interpret his comments that way. I took them as ... midweek games are a good opportunity to develop players ... and that he would like the opportunity to use some of those games as such, without paying the RPI penalty that can come with that development.

    Which he's said exactly that in past conversations. You no longer have redshirts that aren't on your 35 man roster, so in most cases those guys (unless injured) you're forced to play. He would like the opportunity to play some of those freshmen and get them experience without the RPI penalty losing midweek games entail.

    I'm wondering how the second game goes last night if we win the first? You have three hits in the first AB in first opportunity and two hits in the second and can't get the guy in. Then you throw out a runner at second in the bottom of the innning but fall behind 3-1 and then 3-2 and hang a breaker that leaves the yard. Robe said in the post game interview that the hitter was the one guy with HR power you worried about in the situation and the pitch was supposed to be a slider that you bury (ball low or in the dirt) and if he swings you're done and if not he's on first. The one thing you can't do is hang it, and Wyatt did just that after throwing great for the whole appearance.

    But he didn't hang a breaker.. it's was not a poor pitch.. it was a ball that started outer half and broke away.. it was an excellent piece of hitting by their only good hitter.

    It was a microcosm of the season thus far. We had 3 opportunities to win the game, and just couldn't get it done. I feel badly for Brenn, because he was robbed of a game winner. But the inning prior, the Monica sac bunt (not his fault) should have been a HBP. As the inning pogressed; it would have been bases loaded, no outs. And that's just that inning.

    Fast forward an inning, 1st and 2nd no outs, Joe Ks and then the DP. Bottom of the inning, 2 out HR. It's just a weird thing with this team. We're usually right there... and then just plss it away..

    And thinking back further in that game... We had them 4-2 late... D-Mo on... and the rains came... Ump trying to finish it... D-Mo hands wet couldn't grip...

    Wasn't it the first game when we also had one that should have been HBP but instead it went off the knob of the bat?

    Just repeating Robe's comments after the game. He basically wanted the pitch in the dirt. I don't think the hitter hit it off of the dirt.
