    Isn't Central Conn where Tom Penders went to school.

    Also, I believe that Rick Lantz went there. Rick is my choice for second best DC in college football behind Leon. Rick is the only DC to successfully change his entire defense for a single game. Barry & Mervyn tried it, and it lasted until almost 9 minutes left in the second quarter. That was the game that exposed Bosworth. Rick's resulted in the first loss by Coach Bowden & FSU in the ACC. In fact, with the game on the line on the last play, Rick told LB Jones what Bobby would call, and UVA stopped Warrick Dunn on wildcat direct snap.

    I just feel like UCLA is kryptonite to us, in every sport...

    Now if they really want to f@ck us, they'd put the following in our regional:

    UCLA
    Air Force
    College of Charleston

    Then you'll know they're messing with us...

    Most colorful color commentator in the business. We also seem to win when he’s in the booth.

    Be surprised if LSU hosts…they just got pummeled by Ole Miss. Don’t see us going to Aggy.
    If we win out and win 2 games in-the tourney I think we will host with a tough regional.
    Might be better to be a #2 in a easy regional

    If we don't get to host, whomever gets us as their #2 seed is going to be pissed...

    Today, the LHN announcers were projecting us to Fayetteville as the #2 seed.

    Maybe we could have a 14-12 or 15-13 victory over the swine…

    Who do we pitch in game one? Likely a tougher 3 seed playing their ace. Gordon? For game 2, we play Pete against the Arky ace, presumably.

    Actually my bet is west coast, like the softball team.

    It’s all just speculation. I would rather not have us go to Fayetteville.

    For starters in the Regional, I’d go with:

    Game 1: Hansen
    Game 2: Gordon
    Game 3 and 4: take your pick from Harrison, Stevens, or Olivarez—the rest of the pen will have to pitch plenty of innings.

    You crazy. Save Hansen for game 2

    If Texas is a two seed it wouldnt shock me if they send the Horns a long distance east or west. If the Horns can win the Big XII tourny it will be tough not slotting them in as a 14-16 seed with regional host but then very tough super if they win that. Texas has won five in a row and 8 of last 9 since the Okie State meltdown and is playing its way back into the conversation at least.

    Why?

    Gordon is the #1 starting pitcher in the Big 12.
    And Hansen is #3.

    See below.
    Whomever draws us as a #2 seed (if we don't host) is gonna get screwed. They'll have to face either Gordon or Hansen in Game 2--which could put them in a bad position to fight back, beat a team in the losers bracket, then beat us twice... Most teams hosting a regional will have 1 pitcher of their caliber. Only a handful will have 2. Tennessee may have 3.

    We're sitting at #21 in the RPI.

    But, we still could get a host. We're killing this conference on the stats sheet (see below). If we win just one game in the conference tourney, we'll get 40 wins on the season. Keeping TEXAS out from hosting a regional with 40 wins and this schedule just ain't right. Then again, we could choke in the conference tournament and find ourselves in Corvallis, Oregon...

    OVERALL TEAM STAT LEADERS, based on runs scored and allowed

    #1:ut: Runs Scored: 463........Runs Allowed: 245.......Delta....218
    ..................1.89 times as many runs scored as allowed


    #2:tech:

    When we get to the third or fourth game in the regionals, and all teams are running out of pitchers, I suspect Olivarez will be the one to step up and (pleasantly) surprise most people. Harrison also has to be able to go a lot of innings--we know he's good, he's just got to go for longer in the playoffs. And we'll be in need of Southard showing up in good form--possibly logging a lot of quality innings.

    Usually, 40 wins + "TEXAS" on your shirt makes for a Regional host.
