    I don't remember having these multiple midweek games under Augie - is it a Pierce thing, or just a response to the later start now for baseball season? Or is my memory playing tricks on me?

    I know that back when I was in school in the late 80's and early 90's there would be a ton of multiple mid week games early in the year under Gus, of course back then the season started in January and they played more games. Most weeks now its still just one game mid week so I dont know that it is a philosophy change under Pierce so much as it is getting in the maximum number of games allowed to be scheduled.

    Ahh, the Lumberjacks.... some nice mid-week "fill" to keep the guys sharp and pad the overall win column. Note in 8 games SFA has never won vs. UT....

    George Bailey No beans in my chili, thank you

    Ahh good ol' SFA. They turn out some good teachers, band directors, forest rangers, and drunks. Started my first year there and fell out of love with the frat scene after one or two rush visits. Found a bunch of dudes playing guitars, banjos, and mandolins and forgot all about the frat scene. And classes...

    I'm an Biz undergrad of SFA. Followed HS GF there... fully intended to transfer to UT... but that is another story.

    Mid-70's, SFA had no baseball program. Buddy and Frat bro of mine tried out for a baseball team / program that SFA was trying to establish.

    LUMBERJACKS are a relatively new program to the Southland Conference.... but "competitive" in recent years from what i know.

    Nonetheless, KICK THEIR *** HORNS!!! :hookem:

    8-0 now....

    Not sure what SFA bullpen has, but based on results thru 4, Horns may win this one by 12-2 or something similar.

    These SFA kids have to be just a LITTLE intimidated playing storied & 6 time NC - currently # 4 TEXAS at the Disch.

    After they lose, it is a long and boring 3 + hour bus ride back to Nacogdoches....

    SFA reliever Chandler Poell comes in with a respectable 1-1 record: 2.35 ERA in a humble 7 2/3 innings.

    This is a "must sweep" series. Tougher opponents await - and it's critical to pad the W/L record against the tailenders.

    I agree, but all during the broadcast last night Zeke and Zonk were playing up Wheat aggy like they were a clear-cut top 10 team.

    Not quite top 10 but their ace (pitching Friday) is a projected 1st round pick and they do seem to score a lot of runs. Texas needs to win and should sweep but it won't be a cake walk.

    KSU took 2 of 3 from Tech last weekend and their Friday pitcher is projected first round draft pick so this weekend will be a dog fight.
