re: Official 2015 Alabama Baseball Thread - bigpapamac
Yea ULL is off to a slow start, so we need to take advantage of getting them early in the year and at the very least win the series. Hopefully ULL will get it turned around later in the season and it'll end up being a solid RPI weekend for us. Also, nice to see Jake Hubbard throw six strong innin...

[quote]Go throw big money at Brad Stevens.[/quote] Lulz. There's a better chance of hiring Tom Izzo and those odds are somewhere around negative infinity. As for the OP, I can't imagine any scenario where we don't fire Grant. I suppose a miracle SEC tournament title run into the NCAA tournamen...

re: Official 2015 Alabama Baseball Thread - bigpapamac
Always disappointing to lose a game when you pitch as well as we did tonight. Most of you will remember we lost 9 (I think was the final tally, including the season opener and the first game of the regional) games last year in which we gave up 2 runs or less, which is unheard of and incredibly frust...

re: Official 2015 Alabama Baseball Thread - bigpapamac
Solid outings from Guilbeau and Castillo last night. Obviously it's tough to read anything into the competition they were facing, but those two guys having big years will be imperative to our success. SP is a question mark, and then in the bullpen if Castillo gets back to freshman Castillo then we'l...

re: Official 2015 Alabama Baseball Thread - bigpapamac
Guilbeau is going to have to be the guy we'd thought he'd be his whole career (or the guy he was in the regional last year), and Bramblett will have to continue the run he had coming out of nowhere at the end of last season if we're going to have any chance at all of meeting some of the lofty expect...

Thanks for taking this on this season :cheers: I'll admit my expectations aren't too high, too many question marks with the pitching staff and a lack of pop offensively. Hope I'm wrong though, excited for Friday regardless....

re: Kiffin staying at Bama - bigpapamac
Glad to have him back. Another year like this one though and he'll be gone for a decent HC job. I mean, he made a 4th string RB look like a pretty good QB this year. I never expected he'd be here more than 2-3 years, but am certainly glad it wasn't just one....

re: Does Alabama count this as number 26 or whatever they claim... - bigpapamac
They aren't retroactively awarded just because one service did so if multiple others awarded them in the moment. So it really isn't a question. 1925 - Helms, Billingsly, Boand, Football Research, Houlgate, National Championship Foundation, Poling Dartmouth: Dickinson, Parke Davis 1926 - Bil...

re: Does Alabama count this as number 26 or whatever they claim... - bigpapamac
Why do you single out one award in each of those years? :confused: 1925 also awarded by six other entities. Dartmouth was the other team awarded any championship, they were selected by two (one of which is your boy Parke Davis) 1926 also awarded by four other entities, more than any other team...
