    Season starts today with Stanford at Cal State Fullerton and Vanderbilt at San Diego so I guess it's time for a new thread.

    Bryant opens tomorrow at New Mexico State, with Mount St. Mary's visiting the Aggies in Los Cruces next week.

    Hope Springs eternal in Emmitsburg for Mount St. Mary's. Having an actual full time pitching coach should pay dividends...but hasn't made enough of a difference yet to keep the Mountaineers from being ranked last in the NEC by pretty much every outlet.

    Headed to Clemson in the AM. Gonna catch Fri/Sat games and hang with my kids. Baseball baby. No better feeling than hanging with my kids at a ballgame.

    Bryant is again favored to win the NEC. They lost a lot of offensive production but have some solid hitters returning and a few new faces to hopefully close the gap. Pitching looks to be the strength this year

    A buddy's son is the catcher at Florida State so I tend to root for them these days. As Paul knows, I am a big Clemson guy as well. Let the season begin!

    I don't get to hang WITH my kid at the games, but what I get to do is pretty awesome, too...(if not a bit nerve wracking a few innings a weekend).

    I am going to be down in Greensboro in a few weeks for an MSMU @ NCA&T weekend series, then Raleigh for 1 game of MSMU @ Duke, followed by a weekend series MSMU @ Savanah State. Anyone around who wants to hit me up for a beer or come to a game or two, feel free...

    I'll definitely be at the MSMU series @ Bryant later in the season, too.

    Yea, looking forward to it. Cal had a hell of a freshman year. Okie/Beer/Raleigh would have been a nice 3/4/5, but he seems to have landed in a good spot.

    Going to watch #17 Long Beach State play the OU Sooners this weekend. Here's hoping that the Sooners' pitching is better this year. (Can't get much worse than last year's.)

    VCU is beating Florida State 3-0 in the top of the 7th inning. VCU has held FSU to 1 hit so far.

    This is now a final. Shocker.

    Wow. Who saw that coming?

    Oklahoma 6, No. 17 Long Beach State 2. The Sooners win on opening day behind dominant outing from Jake Irvin. Yay! Better pitching.

    Their new pitching coach is my wife's uncle - Skip Johnson. He is a good recruiter and will be able to coach them up so you should see a marked improvement.

    From a personal standpoint, it pained me greatly to see him go from Texas to Oklahoma. Would have much preferred to see him go to Texas Tech, where I figured he would go because he's good friends with Tim Tadlock. I just still can't get over seeing him wear those colors (puke).

    Sorry, Bosoxen! While I'm on the sidelines of the Texas-Oklahoma rivalry (didn't grow up here so I don't really hate Texas), I do understand sports hate. (Still annoys me to see Ellsbury in pinstripes.) I'm looking forward to some baseball today! It's 70 degrees and sunny.
