IT will be...I have seen most of your games since regionals and there is no way this series won't be awesome.

Definitely this series has all the makings of something epic and I haven't been this pumped since 2005.

What happened in 2005?

Nah just kidding. They were talking about the best college QB's of all time the other day on the radio and they said VY was #1 and I was just blown away. Definitely needs to be on that list of the top 5 in my mind but not #1.

Well 2005 was a terrific year for me personally but I was actually referring to the baseball team's run to the title.

That team was just loaded top to bottom and after losing to Cal State Fullerton the previous year it was sweet to see them make it back and take it home.

On VY obviously totally biased but yeah I wouldn't say #1 of all time- maybe #1 as the most gifted athletically and physically.

My vote would go to Gino Torretta.

That was pretty lame. 2 outs...bottom of the 9th...2-run double. Man, that guy choked under the pressure big time. Came up reeeeeal small...

Not too many situations in sports where anyone on the team can change the game at any given moment. That was pretty cool. I would've struck out lookin!

Well obviously I ain't too happy how that turned out but congrats on the win ZZ and the comeback. :thumbups:

But why, oh WHY did Chance Ruffin have to get cramps!?!?!?!

After that blast in the 1st inning he settled down and was pitching a great game. I couldn't believe it when they took him out until they brought up that he was cramping up. I gotta say that after the epic 13 inning, 169 pitches and 12.1 innings of no-hit ball against B.C. Austin Woods just hasn't been the same. Augie has more baseball knowledge in one hair on his head than I do but I wish we had used our set-up relievers at first before bringing Wood in. That way if they start messing up you can always bring him in and hopefully get some outs or innings out of them before that.

It's worked all season so I shouldn't complain but I got extremely nervous about doing the defensive substitutions late because once the game got tied we had no Kevin Keyes or Russell Moldenhauer in extra innings. Seeing two guys bat with all that pressure and batting .174 and .200 compared to the crazy numbers LSU's hitters' have was tough.

Oh well- tough way to lose the first game and now our pitching is hamstrung to make the climb back that much harder. Gotta pray for Taylor Jungmann to come back after that tough 6 pitch 6 balls performance last night and pitch his usual good game when he normally just rolls with the pressure.

Dammit ZZ- congrats but I ain't givin' up despite how it looks right now.

we were talking about the cramps thing last night to with friends. We were 100% positive that if Ruffin could have pitched longer we would have lost. Oh that one guy,cant remember his name, has a nasty hook. Kinda reminds me of Brad Lidges sick slider.

Well I was at work scrambling to find feeds of the game that would work on my phone...to no freaking avail. So I had to settle for the terribleness that is ESPN.com coverage. AKA updates after that half of the inning.

I read the stories today and it didn't really surprise me of the 30 HR's that Coleman has given up this season I would guess that at least 25 have been when he fell behind in the count. He gives into the hitters too much and takes off of his fastball when that happens and it often spells ball going over outfield wall. That has been my only complaint against him.

Matty Ott really came through last night too. Man if he didn't show up this season we would have had no shot at making it this far.

I agree that Ruffin was lights out after watching the replay...sucks it had to be cramps that did him in. I also agree about the late inning subs. Man that is always a tough call, but he believed in his pitching and why shouldn't he. Woods has been lights out most of this post season...and I am sure the rest of the year too, but I haven't seen those games.

I thought we would win last night on the strength of our starter and defense and lose tonight, but looks like the reasoning may be reversed. I am definitely hoping to close it out tonight, but amd expecting Austin Ross to get the start and he has been off and on when he does. So I don't know what we will get out of him. Auggie needs to keep letting your guys swing away though. I think he got too conservative late in the game and that got his guys thinking at the plate. Or maybe it was like Patrick said and they were just trying to hit it over the fence too hard because of how many times they have done it recently.

Anyways, the game was even better then I expected and I expected a lot. That was possibly the best baseball game I have ever seen. The Cubs game 6 back in 03 against the Marlins was #1 even though my guys lost. I still won 1400 bucks that year for betting on FLA to win it all in Vegas at the all star break. SO I wasn't too broken up about the loss being a cubs fan and all.
