Texas went to 9-0 after beating Penn St. 9-0 yesterday with a 9th inning no-no being pitched by Brandon Workman. He screwed up up the whole 9 thingy with throwing 10 Ks though.


ZZ- I figured you would be a fan considering LSU's great baseball tradition.

Yeah I assumed you would be too especially with the recent history at UT...Workman is scary good on the mound.

I actually went to some Skip Bertman camps in the 90's and they recruited my cousin a bit but he ended up getting a full ride somewhere else and now coaches at Northern Iowa (home to Kurt Warner...LOL)...Bertman is the best thing to happen to LSU athletics. 5 National titles as a baseball coach...a couple of great hire in Mainieri, Saban, Miles, Johnson, and Van Chancellor. But our college is looking really great in the 4 biggest sports in the SEC (track, football, basketball, and baseball)...I can't remember the last time we won an outright regular season title in b-ball. And we are ranked #1 in baseball and looking good with just about every starter batting over.400.

So much promise...but then again. It ain't crunch time yet. I would be pleased with another appearance in the CWS and a sweet 16 in b-ball. But obviously want to win both.

Hey now!!! The Ivy league has to be relevant in a sport other than rowing!

ZZ- yup I was pretty stoked when we hired Augie away from Cal State Fullerton, Cliff Gustafson was a good coach who brought us 2 titles but had started to decline in his last years with good seasons but no titles. Before the last few years our last title was 1983 with Roger Clemens.

Texas dropped it's first game of the season on Saturday against Stanford but we came to take the series by winning yesterday. Except for the Sat. game our pitching was excellent and we're at 12-1 now. Stanford always gives us problems so it good to win a series on the road against them.

The pitching continues to really impress me and it's best staff we've had since the 2005 championship team.

we sucked against Illinois. Our pitching looked bad, our fielding was worse, and we relied on the long ball to drive in runs. It worked on Sat when we scored 22, but the other two games were embarassing and we dropped them to an average Illinois team.

We got a long way to go...Mainieri needs to get their heads out of the clouds. We played like we thought we couldn't be beat instead of trying to prove we couldn't be beat.

Only college baseball I follow is my schools but it's D3 so it's not big or anything.

We are pretty good though for a D3 school.
