re: #6 Texas A&M 6 vs #9 Vanderbilt 1 - Final - twk
I'm getting greedy now--not about where we are seeded (other than in the top 8, don't care if it's 1 or 8), but, I don't want TCU dropping out of a national seed and getting paired with our regional. Other than that, I'll take that #8 seed and say thank you very much. Regarding Fullmer, I'm sure ...

Good work. I'm following your updates with interest. I like Auburn's chances. I think Missouri was to win a couple more to have a shot....

re: SEC Tourney ***OmaHOGS 7, UF 6*** F - twk
[quote]I don't think we can play our way in to a host seed personally. Even Kendall Rogers was saying it was unlikely even if we win the tournament.[/quote]I think you're right. There are too many teams ahead of Arkansas in the RPI. If the 5th team in the SEC is going to host, it just about has to b...

re: D1Baseball Regional Projections (5/19) - twk
[quote]I'll say. Best baseball program in that state. They are the reason Mizzou isn't better than they are. Just look at the Missouri State Bears baseball stadium, Hammons Field... Capacity, 8,000. It also has 28 luxury suites, five party decks, six food and beverage outlets, a souvenir shop a...

re: What does Mizzou baseball have to do to make the tourney? - twk
[quote]Follow up on this question. What if they play no games this weekend and all Mizzou has is the SEC tourney left? Looks like lots of rain in COMO.[/quote]Missouri has got to fix that RPI problem (which was caused by the midweek losses). Missouri needs some more wins, but probably more than th...

[quote]What was your coach so pissed about on that Texas league double in the 9th? I couldn't figure out what the conference was about. Any idea?[/quote]I'm pretty sure that Holbrook wanted a replay review of fair foul (he may have had no view of the play from the first base dugout). Seemed like t...

re: New Field of 64 Projections from D1Baseball - twk
[quote]how does Dallas Baptist keep getting all the love? they play nobody yet end up Top 8 Seed?[/quote] They have the #1 RPI. Numero uno. Hard to pass them up if that's the case when the season ends. Now, slip even one or two spots, and they might be left out since they probably won't even win th...

re: Arkansas Razorbacks - 6th SEC series win in a row. - twk

re: Arkansas Razorbacks - 6th SEC series win in a row. - twk
Well, I guess you are entitled to your opinion misguided though it may be. Florida could win out or lose out and that would probably still have almost the same effect on the Hogs hosting chances, other than there being one less team in the mix nationally. Arkansas would jump a lot of other pote...

re: Arkansas Razorbacks - 6th SEC series win in a row. - twk
[quote]That's great, but fortunately the hosts selected don't go in an exact RPI order. No selection at all goes in RPI order. Just ask LSU fans about 2011 and being left out completely with an RPI of 24. Or Arkansas hosting as a two seed 8 years ago. Fact is, the SEC is the #1 league, again in co...

[quote]Why do you think Memphis would get it over Nashville? I know they have a great ballpark, but now Nashville does as well.

[quote]Nashville - that city that is opened 52 weeks a year? I can do that any of the other 51 weeks out of the year.

re: Question for TAMU baseball. - twk
1. Reserved seats I'm sure are sold out, but there will be tickets for resale on Flash Seats. If you don't mind GA, and get there early, that's also a possibility. 2. Nope. Used to be, but that area is under construction. If you want to drink while watching the game, you'll have to score some clu...

[quote]So I know we've covered most of the weird aTm "traditions" on here (e.g. jizz jars, male spooning, etc) But today I found out about one that I think may have slipped through the cracks, apparently y'all don't use the term alumnus? apparently the preferred nomenclature is just "former student...

re: If any of the iconic SEC Stadiums ever get torn down, which will be first? - twk
[quote]There is none of the original stadium left, despite the fact that we have been playing on that spot continuously for a long, long time. The top two decks on the student side are the oldest part of the existing structure, but I don't remember when they were added. Since they are self-support...

re: 3 Tigers make Houston Classic All-Tournament Team - twk
The first year of the tournament, UH, Rice, A&M, Baylor, and Texas were all in the field (don't remember who the sixth team was). After that, UH and Rice were every year participants, but A&M/Baylor and UT/Tech would rotate, until the latest round of conference realignment screwed up schedules and r...

[quote]I think the LFL would be pretty cool, but man that seems like alot of money for a baseball suite. That's almost $2K per game. How far is it from the football stadium? Guess if you could stay there during football season as well it would justify it a little more.[/quote] I think that football ...

re: How are the expansion projects coming? Part II - twk
We're using steel rather than concrete, so it's going to go up really fast. I think they'll have all the steel in place by late March, if not before, and I would expect all the risers to be in place by mid-June. The real race will be to complete the finish on interior spaces like the suites and club...
