    Ashley Brignac is about to put the team on her back Greg Jennings style.

    They were going to pull Brignac when she gave up that HR in the 7th, but you saw it on Brignac's face. On the stream they showed Brignac look at the coaches and clearly mouth "only 2 more outs, this is mine."

    Willpower will only take you so far. That was the case in 2008, and that will be the case in 2011. Why bring Rodgers on the bus if she isn't capable? She's more than capable. Put her out there in game 1. yank her before the big inning if she gets into trouble, and start her again in game 2. Do the same thing. If Rodgers gets the job done in game 1, then start Brignac.

    I'm not near the coach the Loteifs are, even in my dreams. But Houston saw Donna B about to lose control of that game against Texas and they took her out before she gave up the game. They won 1-0.

    Start Rodgers and be prepared with a quick hook. See what she can do. You might be pleasantly surprised. If the bats come alive, Crabtree is beatable. We got to her late in that Friday game. Just couldn't finish it off. No offense to Donna B, but she's very susceptible to big innings when the other side isn't wearing purple and gold. We can do this. Just not expecting 14 solid from AB.

    Agree we need to swing the bats. What concerns me is that our biggest bat was lame. It was very obvious that Orgeron was having trouble. I'm hoping it doesn't get worse over night.

    My guess is that Ashley will start...but I could not argue with starting Rodgers and seeing what happens...having Ashley ready to take over if needed.

    But it will take some runs to win out. Games of 2 or 3 runs won't do it. Bats gotta show up.

    Didn't Christie get two RBI hits in the Texas game? Hopefully she can continue that tomorrow. As far as Ashley is concerned, she is just about my favorite athlete on campus and may be the most accomplished. She is beautiful, brilliant academically, a wonderful athlete, has the heart of a lion, and is mentally tough as they come. Recall her comeback from injury. Despite all that she is still a human being and the challenge in front of the entire team tomorrow is as difficult as we have faced in a long time.

    She did but was having a hard time on the bases and had a pinch runner at one point. My concern is that whatever is bothering her tightens up overnight and makes it difficult to play tomorrow.

    My nine-year old daughter (Megan) was briefly able to meet Ashley after the game. Megan said hello and Ashley gave her a high five. It made Megan's night.

    Simple answer, yes.

    Long answer, in the first game today while Texas State had the bases loaded. The batter hit a ball back up toward her, she fielded it, and when she planted her foot to throw the runner out at first, her knee she buckled under her and she fell to the ground. They brought out an air cast, and crutches. She crutched off the field with it already in the air cast. It did not look good. I'd guess (just guessing) that she tore her ACL or MCL, and is done. Ashley came in and finished the game, and got the win.

    I've heard NOTHING since then. I was mainly listening to the baseball game tonight while watching the softball game.

    She was out of the air cast after the game, but still on crutches. One of the UL personnel thought it was simply a sprain. If she tore her ACL, she would feel a burning sensation and would likely know. Hopefully it is just a sprain.

    Preliminary says a sprain.

    Will need an MRI to know the full extent of the injury.

    In the post-game video, when the two teams were filing past each other, I saw someone in uniform on crutches in the line. She was putting some weight on the bad leg. That would appear to be a good sign that it may not be an ACL. Also, if it were that bad, I doubt the coaches would be letting her go out to the post-game line.

    An ACL is one of the most deceptive knee injuries because it is surprisingly the least painful.

    I'm optimistic that its just a sprain, but she's done for this regional unless she is super woman and heals overnight.

    If we win out today and Tenn loses 1 game is there a chance that the Cajuns host the super regional against Okie State?

    I think so because we would have beaten the higher seed. Don't quote me though, it might fall on who is the remaining highest seed

    Its a shame we cant get her to the "traiteur" in St Martinville. Its worked for some of our football players over the last 30 years.

    Unlikely, as there at least two factors as I recall that come into play. First, you have to have submitted a bid to host a super regional. Second, the higher seed from the higher regional is given preference. For example, the #2 seed from region #3 will be preferred over #2 from region #14. But #2 from region #14 will be preferred over #3 from region 3. Cajuns are #3 seed, we needed Georgia Tech or Liberty to win region #14.
    I cannot guarantee that this is still the procedure used, but it has been in the past.

    Cajuns were the #2 seed. They batted in the bottom half of the inning in game one against Houston.

    Houston chose to bat first, just as the Cajuns like to do when they have the choice.
