    Although I'm disappointed the Horns couldn't take two of three against LBSU, I am incredibly heartened by the fact that the future appears bright for the program.

    I am still sad that Skip had to go but at least Augieball already feels like a distant memory.

    Sorry, Bosoxen. You'll be seeing Skip in lots of Crimson and Cream! Head coach of the Sooners.... I wish more people went to the baseball games, but the softball team has been better than baseball for years so it tends to draw the bigger crowd. (Frankly, the baseball field is a better place to watch any kind of sport because it provides lots of shade.) The only cloud on anyone's horizon is that OU President David Boren will probably retire in a few years. Who knows how his successor will approach the athletics program.....

    I'm super happy for him. He deserves this shot and has worked extremely hard for it. I can't say I'm not disappointed he didn't get that shot in Austin but I'm able to set aside rooting interests for family when it comes to TCU, so I think I can manage this as well. Though there is a slight difference in degree when it comes to Oklahoma. ;)

    Congrats to Skip; may he lose every game he coaches at OU, resigns and takes a job at UCLA or something awesome. :)

    Wow this strikezone at the end of the LSU Oregon St game is horrific. Ump definitely has dinner plans.

    Go Gators!

    Wish they had a deeper lineup. The arms are there.

    Plenty of seats available tonight because no one can make plans around a Saturday night game. Thursday was jammed. Still filing in but will not be sold out.

    Great event, one of the best I ever covered.
    CBS tried to screw it up, but thankfully failed. The NCAA did take the CBS money.

    Thought about wandering up the street to see if I could grab a ticket for tonight's game but got sidetracked.

    If I am the Detroit Tigers, I am cringing at O'Sullivan's decision to send Faedo out in the eighth inning. I know it was a cramp but if the guy alters his delivery just a bit and hurts himself after throwing 112 pitches they are screwed.

    The Tigers just need to look down at their current field and cringe.

    Yeah, I can't believe they sent him out again.

    This is such a non-issue.
    It's just as likely this is gong to be used next spring by the Tigers to illustrate his intensity and focus on winning.

    And then there is a brutal call on LSU for Jake Slaughter's slide wide of the bag to take out the fielder which takes the tying run off the board. Ugh.

    No it was the right call. He slid wide of the bag and was called interference by the letter of the rule.

    Oh it was the right call - I agree. It was just brutal for LSU given the situation. It hurts, right call or not.

    But here comes LSU right now. What a great game.

    LSU played sloppy and made bad decisions. The bad slide, the squander with a runner on third and no outs. And on and on.

    Congrats to all Florida Gators fans.

    Tigers coach Paul Mainieri was exceptional in his post-game remarks.

    Don't know if anyone has paid attention to the College of Charleston mess, but here are some articles that cover it, (1 and 2).

    Basically, they fired Matt Heath who took over after Monte Lee left (2 seasons). He left because there were complaints by players that he was abusive to players. Jury is still out on those facts and he's suing the school. I don't have any real inside info there, but it seems bizarre since he was on staff with Monte before he was hired.

    They then search, hire Chad Holbrook, he accepts, the AD tells him to inform his family pending an announcement and the President then stops that hire. Apparently former players, including Brett Gardner, lobbied hard at the last minute for a former player. So Chad pulls his name out of the running. A few days later they were back on Holbrook and offered him the job, again. He took it again and was announced as the coach last week.

    Just a mess from a school who has a history screwing major hires up.
