It has more to do with putting Holman in the middle so you use your bullpen more in games 1 & 3 with a rest day in the middle. Jay said that. It's smart. Not something I had considered. At the end of the day though, all of the strategy stuff isn't the issue. Everyone just needs to play better....

re: Skip, Tax Day, and the Lineup

Posted by ccox11 on 4/16/24 at 4:17 pm
I don't disagree but that's also pretty much exactly what they're already doing. The problem is that everything has been tried to this point and nothing has worked significantly. Kling, Neal, and Hurd gotta get hot. It's really that simple....

9 game win streak - got to have it

UNO - RPI 101 @ Missouri - RPI 94 @ Missouri - RPI 94 @ Missouri - RPI 94 Nicholls - RPI 98 Auburn - 2-13 SEC record Auburn - 2-13 SEC record Auburn - 2-13 SEC record Grambling - RPI 264 No more excuses. Get these 9 and you're back to 31-15 (9-12) with a fighting chance to close out the s...

re: Hurd, Kling, and Pearson

Posted by ccox11 on 4/15/24 at 4:55 pm
I would say Hurd, Kling, and Neal but we can go all 4 if you want. This is the truth though. Everybody else on the team is doing what you should have expected out of them-- or at the very least it isn't surprising. Although I am pretty surprised by Justin Loer also... Offensively, you're getting ...

Met Hailey Van Lith

Posted by ccox11 on 4/11/24 at 1:53 pm
She was at a charitable event yesterday evening. I was accompanying some kids I work with. She was very personable and engaging with the kids. I asked her where she was playing next year. She said she doesn't know (I'm sure she actually does). She said she was just focused on finishing up her MBA th...

re: Pitching help for next year

Posted by ccox11 on 4/8/24 at 8:38 am
I honestly never understand this type of questioning. How would anyone know until players get to campus and start pitching? The guys we have now were highly ranked. How does it make logical sense to say "the highly ranked guys we have now aren't pitching well, do we have any highly ranked guys comin...
In 2 or 3 seasons......
Last or maybe around Missouri. I don't understand the point though. That's true for essentially every team outside the 4 major conferences. 13 SEC teams would win every conference other than the ACC, Big 12, and Pac 12......
In all seriousness, there's no reason not to fire McMahon and rehire Wade if Wade is willing to come back. That doesn't even have anything to do with McMahon. I think he's done as good as could reasonably be expected in his first two seasons. You know who else didn't "deserve" to be fired after 2 se...
I think it's mostly just having an entire lineup of 4th/5th year seniors. It doesn't hurt that Taylor Pleasants is one of the best players in the game either. They really loaded up for this season....
Texas travel schedule. They have to go to BYU for the weekend....

re: So quiet on the softball front

Posted by ccox11 on 3/9/24 at 12:55 pm
Yall really don't get it. Let's see how they finish in the SEC and in the postseason. They've done really well in non-conference almost every year. It's expected. I hope they continue on and get a top 8 seed and make it to the WCWS. Unfortunately, if they don't, the 20-0 start will not matter....
Jay Johnson has explicitly stated that the 16 position players who have played are the only ones they intend on playing so I assume the intention is to redshirt Paul, Roelig, and Mitchell as well barring injury or something changing....
I don't think anybody's hiding. They're off to a great start. They've had a lot of great starts. We will see if they can continue it and how they fare in the postseason. That is where they've lacked. Nothing happening right now matters at that time....

2025 Frisco College Baseball Classic

Posted by ccox11 on 2/28/24 at 9:57 am
Musso mentioned on the radio that LSU is playing in the Frisco College Baseball Classic next season and is playing someone (likely Dallas Baptist) in a midweek game before or after as well. First I had heard this......

re: Against the wind hitting strategy

Posted by ccox11 on 2/24/24 at 10:27 am
To me it's more about who's in the lineup than their approach. The players are who they are. We saw Jared Jones absolutely destroy a ball yesterday that got caught at the wall. He and Travinski are straight pull power hitters. You can't hit a homer to left or center with a strong north wind. I think...

re: VMI 5 @ LSU 27 Final - 7 innings

Posted by ccox11 on 2/18/24 at 8:06 pm
I wonder if Mic Paul and Austin Roelig are unavailable for some reason...
I think making any conclusions based on 1 weekend is not something you should do. With that said, I do think Holman is the best Friday night option because he is the most likely to consistently get deeper into games, in my opinion, which I think is ideal for game 1 because then you know exactly w...
