that one stat reminds me of the football team that goes 5-11, but '8 of our losses were by a tochdown or less'.

I guess not gettng blown off the field on the reg is something. not sure what, but it's something.

1 hour until first pitch. Coach Garrido & Coach Harrington are chatting behind home plate - I'd like to listen in on that conversation!

Just a quick note on my visit this last weekend.  I was able to meet up with some great folks; several parents of current players, Slim & his brother, UTDave, NativeTX, OccupyLF Crew, and others.  It was a good time, and they're all good people.  Thanks to UTDave for the Coach Gus gift!  Thanks to Slim for letting me sit with him!

Texas State wearing their road gray throwbacks-all gray pants and jerseys with their crimson caps.

The lightning delay is official - last strike was 5:33, that means the earliest they'll be allowed back on the field is 6:03.

The updated goal is for 1st pitch at 6:30. The radar doesn't look cooperative.

Augie pre-game quotes, (Sorry, I was trying to type as fast as I could to catch it all.)

 

"we all know that we need a heavy dose of confidence, confidence comes from success."

"we plan to give them some time off.  They have some study time coming up.  It's like putting up your golf clubs for a time"

"we have the athletes that can play the game at a high level, and we have to just get their confidence back."

"This is probably the most surprised I've ever been by a team."

"Even starting in the summer all the freshmen came in, never missed a class, never missed a practice.  Fall was the same way."

"There was never a situation where we felt we had to change up things due to lack of focus."

"Good kids from the get go, they still are."

"We had experience."

"What really happened was losing confidence losing 9 games by 1 run.  Lost extra inning games, 1-run games, repeated the pattern again, now it's almost become a habit."

"Getting a lot of hits, but not getting runs."

"The other thing we've tried to keep quiet about was the pitching staff.  Last year we had three starters starting every game.  We've had seven different starting pitchers, and our ace hasn't thrown a ball yet."

"The break gives people time to think and get things off their minds.  It becomes extremely stressful during this finals week."

More lightning in the area. That means the 30-minute clock will reset. 

 

They just cleared the grandstands again.

Hey Cotcher, I have it under control at Command Central; go grab you a beer and some supper and head back after.
