re: We are all witness: LF7 - BallHog
Greatest individual sports performance I've seen in person in my life. And I was there for almost all of TM7's games. Leonard was on one that day. ...

re: CPM should be at least mentioned for COTY. - BallHog
Nobody hates LSU coaches and tries to diminish their accomplishments more than LSU "fans". Incredible. :rolleyes: To OP, you're on point. Our high preseason ranking was primarily the residue of our dominance in the SEC last year as well as the return of almost all of our pitchers. I guess yo...

re: Our opponents in regional play - BallHog
Rice's effective adjustments might have something to do with the fact that Wayne Graham is a HOF coach that has probably seen everything - literally - because he's been in baseball for so long. But as to your general comment, there is less time to scout these smaller schools, and you're generally...

re: Amador upset with Fraley? - BallHog
I think Fraley stepping out of the box was quietly effective, even if it wasn't a carefully thought out strategic decision. You could clearly see Amador's frustration after that first walk, and he unraveled quickly thereafter. I doubt Deichmann sees that good of a pitch - even though he hit a co...

re: LSU as a Dark Horse CWS Contender? - BallHog
I understand the point yall are making to some degree, but I still don't think getting a No. 8 national seed carries with it the expectations that yall do. If you think the thread title is a misnomer, maybe you're right. But I think its worth noting that since the introduction of national seeds ...

re: Who do y'all wanna play SLU or Rice - BallHog
I enjoy LSU asserting its dominance over the in state schools, especially in baseball. I think Rice will be the matchup, but I'm hoping for Southeastern. ...

re: LSU as a Dark Horse CWS Contender? - BallHog
For me, its nice to feel positive about a baseball postseason. The tyranny of high expectations is a real thing. We were stacked last year and in 2013 and those two teams would have both won a natty or at least made the final series before the bats were nerfed IMO. Sports are really hard to enjo...

Wow OneFifty, that was beautiful. A proper paean to the Possum. :geauxtigers: If we lose our next two and don't make the Supers btw, I accept full responsibility because of this post and totally expect to be berated for a while. :lol:...

re: LSU as a Dark Horse CWS Contender? - BallHog
[quote]I'll say this. We definitely don't have quite as much starpower as last year, however the cohesion of this group is higher than last years. I think that is a very large part, whether people admit it or not. [/quote] For sure. I'm not usually believer in the "scrappy" team with "goo...

re: LSU as a Dark Horse CWS Contender? - BallHog
[quote]Not sure how we would be considered a dark horse since we took 3/5 from the #1 overall and we are a national seed. [/quote] This team does not really match up well talent-wise with Florida/Louisville/Texas A&M this year. But you're right in that we can hang with those teams. However, we...

LSU as a Dark Horse CWS Contender? - BallHog
Realistically, I didn't think we would host a regional this year when the season started and was generally OK with that, considering the talent we lost on offense. We didn't have the pitching depth to finish the job last year, and I didn't see how our pitching would pick up the lineup's slack we...

[quote]more like 20+ years. they eliminated us in the 1995 regional at the Box, and we had to beat them in the 1997 CWS.[/quote] Yeah fair point. I was thinking 1995 to 2009. They've only once gone past a regional since they lost to us in the 2009 Super. It was a hell of a run though. ...

re: Ever since 2009 LSU always struggles at the plate in the postseason - BallHog
The results have to be contextualized. LSU's offensive production in the postseason has been reduced, along with that of every other team, (on average at least) since the bats were changed. Might you argue that we have not adjusted to that change as well as some schools? Maybe, but I personally ...

re: SLU is a much better hitting team than LSU - BallHog
Poor SELU. They can't even qualify as little brother. They're more like a pet fish: if you keep them fed with the occasional Southland championship, they'll stay alive for a while. ...
