re: Am I the only one that thinks college baseball ain't what it was!! - twk
[quote]Or, just move the fences in[/quote] Moving the fences in would increase homeruns a little, but it would be offset somewhat by decreasing the area the outfielders have to cover, which would lead to more fly ball outs, and fewer extra base hits. As exciting as a walk off homer is, a double that...

re: Am I the only one that thinks college baseball ain't what it was!! - twk
[quote]Skip has been saying the past few yrs that the ball & the bats are ok now but what makes Omaha so difficult is the stadium is built such that the winds are always blowing in towards home plate that time of the year. And CPM saw UCLA win 2 NC's going small ball with average size players. He kn...

re: In this thread, we discuss national seeds and regional hosts - twk
[quote]I think 2 SEC teams will get hot last half and get National seeds. Hoping one is LSU of course, but there are 7 teams that could still do it.[/quote] I tend to agree. Although, if we only get one national seed, they might sort of compensate by giving us five or six host slots. It's shaping u...

re: Chase for SEC Baseball Title...Remaining SEC schedules for Top 8 teams - twk
Not sure I see any real difference in the strength of schedule over those five weekends, which tells you that it's really up for grabs this year. I like LSU's chances at home against Kentucky, but if UK somehow walks out of Baton Rouge with a series win, I think they have a pretty good chance of ...

re: most iconic fb play for your school? - twk
For A&M, probably Sir Parker's OT winning touchdown against KSU in the '98 Big XII championship. If you want to go way back, Ed Hargett scramble for a 15 yard TD on the last play of the game to beat Tech in 1967 and start a run that led to A&M winning the SWC that year (their only Cotton Bowl ap...

re: Auburn makes its first ever trip to Columbia, MO to play Mizzou this year - twk

re: Next up Aggie Fans, WHats your take - twk
[quote]Is it true that A&M extended the deadline to renew football season tickets?[/quote] No. They send you a reminder if you don't renew by the deadline. They never use the "deadline" as a drop dead date without making some effort to contact the account holder....

re: Next up Aggie Fans, WHats your take - twk
[quote]8-4 probably gets him fired. And I don't think he can win 8 games.[/quote] We're not going to pay $10 million in lump sum buyout to fire a coach that goes 8-4. At 7-5, they'd talk about it, but probably not pull the trigger. At 6-6, they would pass the hat and see if someone wanted to pay ...

[quote]Most games are official after five, three more outs is all you had to get in and it sounds like they could have resumed i[/quote] I'm not sure that the pro rule on official games applies to college baseball. My recollection on RPI rules is that only completed games are factored in (in fact...

re: SEC Baseball teams, ranked by Twitter followers of official accounts - twk
[quote]I'm really only surprised by MSU not having more given their history and level of support and A&M not having more for the sheer size of the student body and alumni network.[/quote] It's a little ironic for me, given that the only reason I signed up for Twitter was that's how A&M announces ...

re: A proposal: the SEC should drop Shreveport and ink a Vegas deal w/the Pac 12 - twk
[quote]Close enough that the PAC 12 (who don't tend to travel well from what I understand) would attend and interesting enough that the SEC fans would be willing to fly out there. It would seem like a slam dunk idea for a highly rated bowl that actually manages to turn a profit on attendance.[/quote...

re: A&M @ LSU Weekend Discussion, Ags Win Series 2-1 - twk
Got in my car and got the hell out of Dodge before someone decided it was all an April Fool'so joke. Had to watch a replay of the 9th when I got off the road for the night to make sure I didn't imagine it. One of the best road trips ever. Thanks for the hospitality. :cheers:...

re: MTSU Coach for an SEC job? - twk
Has Kermit managed to air brush out completely his one year stint as head coach at A&M way back in 1990? There is a reason no major school has hired him since that fiasco. Kermit probably needs to coach somewhere under the radar. I don't think his success at MTSU would translate to success at the SE...

re: Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic 2017 - twk
They are apparently expecting big crowds. They are now selling club level (2nd deck--not to be confused with Diamond Club behind home plate) tickets for $24 for tonight (opens at 6:00; prior to that time ticket will get you into lower level GA) and tomorrow (opening at 2:30). Don't recall them doing...

re: Bad Weather Forecast in Houston This Weekend - twk
Minute Maid has air conditioning, but no heating system. Consequently, the park tends to stay pretty cold in winter. It may be 70 degrees outside, but it will probably feel like the upper 50s inside, because all that concrete, protected from direct sunlight, warms very slowly. Dress accordingly....

re: Just released AD Revenues: A&M-$194M, Bama-$164M - twk
About $30 million of that A&M figure is capital contributions to the stadium project that will wind down over the next five years. Still, we are light years ahead of where we used to be. However, I don't think we have an extra $10 million laying around that's not be used if we decide Sumlin has to ...
