| LSU Recruiting Board|| Ben Simmons NOT Selected for the Aussie National Team - thunderbird1100 on 7/27/14 at 6:55 pm|
Wow, kind of a slap in the face to him. Although he is very young, he'd be a starter on that team.
Dante Exum, who is a year older, got chosen.
Simmons said he was very disappointed on twitter....

1. RF JR. (L) Mark Laird
2. DH FR. (R) Jordan twin platoon

You might have to actually do a double take on this but Chinea and Robertson are destroying things in Cape Cod this summer. Laid, Stevenson, Hale and Zardon are all doing very very healthy themselves. Unfortunately Fraley is struggling quite a bit. Also, not cape cod related but Bregman is hitting j...

| Tiger Rant|| Anyone take a guess how many home runs have been hit in CWS? - thunderbird1100 on 6/17/14 at 10:30 pm|
Oh hell I'll cut the suspense out now
Over the course of 8 games no home runs have been hit by any of the 8 CWS teams. It's still hard to believe the knee jerk reaction the NCAA had going to these new bats and totally not even thinking about changing the ball until "oh w...

FSU in an elimination NCAAT game at home has managed to fill up maybe half their stands on national t.v.
A team with great NCAAT success (sans the championship itself :lol:).
Sometimes fans can will their teams, doesnt look like FSU will get any willing from their fans today....

I am thinking of getting the "College Baseball Ticket" subscription for $7.95/month.

I honestly didnt think this team had what it takes to make it to Omaha but what counts is how you're playing right now and the fact is winning 8 straight blowing everyone out sans the #1 team in the country (but winning the championship doing that) headed into the NCAAT is a great telltale sign of w...

We are now 13th all time in draft picks, fast approaching Florida (only 5 more than us) and Miami (only 7 more than us).
Florida had 4 draft picks this year (5 less than us) and Miami had 3 draft picks this year (6 less than us)

Thought Gray would get this with his insane point totals but low and behold they gave it to the #2 guy in scoring in JUCO this past season.

| Tiger Rant|| How much are we missing Russell Reynolds & Hunter Newman this season? - thunderbird1100 on 4/14/14 at 7:54 pm|
Seems like one of those would have been a lock for the rotation this year and given us a pretty good starting rotation and not the current black hole of a 3rd starter we keep trying to find.
Really unfortunate neither could play for us this season....
| Tiger Rant|| Not the season we wanted - thunderbird1100 on 3/24/14 at 9:53 pm|
But we do have a solid corps of players coming back and adding some really good ones. If we can get some much better coaching next season it's definitely a tournament team, just have to teach some DEFENSE....

Haven't seen this talked about, but does anyone think he could seriously give Johnny Jones a run for his money on some Texas or LA kids? Auburn obviously holds some weight on LA kids with who they've gotten in football, and now with a strong recruiter in basketball, what are the chances they take s...

So Glenn has been getting smashed in 2 of his 3 starts so far, which begs the question what's going on there?
This was a guy who last year was pretty dang good, at times inconsistent, but he finished with 2.68 ERA on the season.
Do you give him 1 more chance to hold onto his weekend spot? Or d...

Let's keep in mind we were down 2 guys including 1 at the last second. We had to come in knowing our guards would get gassed tonight playing the entire game basically.

I think Hickey has finally realized he doesn't need to be the man anymore but rather create opportunities for our other players.
The last 2 games he has 12 assists to 1 turnover. That's SPECTACULAR numbers for a PG. He's never been a high percentage shooter and this is why he needs numbers like t...
