re: How much rope do you give mainieri - cafeaulait19
How tight are Skip and Paul? I would think if Skip had had enough, Paul might be nudged into 'retiring'. But if Skip is strongly behind Paul, I don't see Alleva making any moves. ...

re: Mainieris late game pitching changes questionable. - cafeaulait19
No problem with putting Gilbert in - but it's an SEC series - if you want to win, have a backup ready in case your guy is off, so if you see him put 2 guys on base, you have an option. Slow it down; talk to the guy, start the 9th with someone in the pen warming up. Act like you want to win, Paul! ...

re: That one hurt. - cafeaulait19
Unbelievable. Just unbelievable. Did he have no one else to consider putting in after 2 guys on in the 9th?! Might be a good time to try the next pitcher! If you had someone ready, you could do that, but no, couldn't plan for a bad outing, could we?...

re: Weekend pitching rotation - cafeaulait19
It's worth trying poche, Lange, walker. Maybe Lange is too amped up on Friday. Maybe a Saturday start (after a Friday poche win!) would help him regain his dominance in early innings. poche can handle Friday night starts....

[quote]Why didn't he do a national search and hire an experienced and proven hitting instructor?

re: Anyone Else not Sold on Kiffin? - cafeaulait19
And I don't get that logic (taking him because Bama had him) - isn't Kiffin the guy who Saban has had years of learning his tendencies, etc? ...

re: Not a Kiffin fan - cafeaulait19
I agree - not a Kiffin fan - and finding someone who Saban doesn't already know inside out might be better than getting his current OC. ...

re: Anyone have any confidence in Alleva not to frick this up? - cafeaulait19
Nope. None at all. But to be fair, at least half the fan base will consider whatever he does a screwup as soon as the new guy loses his first game....

re: Houston source re: Herman - cafeaulait19
Agreed - don't be scared of Texas - Herman might end up there, or maybe he wants to work inSEC and challenge the best week in and week out, working w Aranda. If he says no, so be it, but stay in the game!...

re: Single Season Sack Record going down today? - cafeaulait19
Hope he gets it - if not today, then vs A&M. Extra impressive considering we are playing one less game this year, and it would have been against a 'lighter' opponent....

re: Why would Jimbo leave FSU? - cafeaulait19
I don't get the love for Jimbo - I agree with concern over how he runs his program, and it's not like he's set the world on fire at FSU, where he has plenty of talent and resources at his disposal. I'm sure he would be ok to good, but we just fired 'ok to good'. Plus, if it's not broken.... maybe...

[quote]Anybody know if Aranda is WILLING to stay... [/quote] While the next 4 games will shed light on the situation, I think everyone is all in for Aranda to stay - my big question, is Aranda 'all in' to stay? My biggest coaching staff concern is someone will come calling to throw gobs of money...

re: How was the crowd Saturday night? - cafeaulait19
Crowd was into it and most stayed. After the alma mater at the end, it was still a wait to get into the aisle to get out, and that was in the south end. But yeah, that piped in music right up to the snap is obnoxious! Ok during timeouts (and there are hundreds of those for TV...) but don't li...
