    What is everyone so upset about. This is our typical pattern; post season and then a year or two of mediocre baseball. I'm so tired of this cr@&!

    What do you want? CWS every year? We are in the #7 conference in the nation at worse. Yes, our hitting sucks right now, but if the hitting starts we will be playing like a 2 seed with our pitching. Get over it, hitting comes and goes, bit pitching is our strong suit.

    The hitting problems have been ongoing. You can't win games when you can't hit and score runs. We are far too timid at the plate. I've seen players watch strike three pass them by without even moving the bat off their shoulder. That is simply unacceptable.

    The only time we can get hits seems to be against very bad pitching. Changes in our hitting game have to happen now. You simply can not expect your pitching to be perfect game in and game out and only score 1 or 2 runs.

    I'm still in favor of Robe, I mean the guy is a great coach, but with that said, our expectations should be to compete for a regional every year, especially considering that we are in the #7 conference in America, as long as we are in the top part of the conference, we would accomplish that. All of that aside, if we can't figure out how to hit, we will NEVER be a World Series caliber team ever again, and I don't mean hitting and scoring 600 runs a game and 40 home runs a game, I mean just being able to average 5-6 runs a game atleast.

    You said hitting comes and goes...but in our case, it never came. The only good hitting game we had came against Alcorn...and they are equal to about a 6A high school team.

    If we can't figure out how to hit better year in and year out, we will never do anything worthwhile in a regional anyway. It takes HITTING. Pitching can't do it all against great teams.

    Simple question. Not a flame. Why can't we pitch AND hit? They are NOT inherently mutually exclusive.

    What's frustrating is everyone is always belittling ULM. Well, right now their team is bigger, stronger...pitches and defends as well. And, most importantly, they looked more confident at the plate...and turned that into more hits and runs.

    That should not happen.

    Y'all know I meant expect lol. And yes, they flat out beat us. We played a great game and they beat us. The size crap doesn't matter, we just aren't getting timely hits.

    It's all relative. Compared to last night, we played a very good game. Although we were helped by ULM miscues in the 8th, the team did a good job battling back to take the lead. The bullpen uncharacteristically let us down.

    We all hear it: Hitting is so mental. Well, it is. This team had better find someone that WANTS the bat in their hands with runners on and the game on the line. Most games you have two or three chances to really bust it open. When we get our chances, we have two outs and a hitter up there that looks like he would rather be ANYWHERE but in the box. Taking a called strike three with two outs and a man on third in a one run game is BS. You have to know you can, and you have to want to hit the baseball. We look like we are waiting for someone to come out there and do it for us. It aint gonna happen. These last two games at the park were almost unbearable. I am going again today because some day they might break out of it.

    (sorry, and, end of rant)

    Do you really think this team can match what they did last year, in my honest opinion, NO but time will tell. In the meantime, I am on Suicide watch.
    I can't believe we can't hit the ball except batting practice. How many grounders did we hit in the first two games this weekend. Had to be an NCAA record. LOL.
    I am tired of mediocrity, now I wonder if our elite status in the state is gone, Let's see, lsu, tulane, slu, ulm, even mickey neese, and please GOD no, loly poly may move ahead of us in Baseball.

    In the meantime, I can so my frustrations on the golf course or go fishin, until then I need a break from this disappointment.

    I found this blog last year and am an avid reader and follower of college baseball but after sitting through these last two games I just had to join with my "two cents". I have never seen an entire starting line-up + some, slump at the plate at the same time for this long of period. Hitting is extremely mental and not one of these young men look anything close to comfortable at the plate. Whether they are uncomfortable with the hitting style or being "mind gamed" into this team wide slump, its getting time to question the hitting coach and style of coaching. The longer this continues, the more evident this will become. I think we all know these young men can hit much better than they are but are not. These kids do not like to lose or continuing to fail but if the hitting instruction is getting inside their heads and making them think too much at the plate, this will continue. The coaches can continue to publicly call these kids soft, but at some point they are gonna have to look within to target the problem.

    Some of you my not be aware of how close the gap between winning and losing really is. We are this "||" close to winning both, and being a win away from going for a sweep this weekend.

    Until we stop hitting like some girlie-men (no disrespect to our Softball team)...the gap is not that small.
