One complaint I have about the coaching, they seem to like for the hitter to take on the first pitch. 

This team has shown they're patient up to this point.  Tonight there has also been some swinging at the first pitch, (i.e. the F9 on one pitch an inning or so back.)  Additionally, this P has some nasty stuff and has the Texas hitters confused at times.

First inning was too easy for Burns when they were swinging early. I think by taking a pitch, they tested his control and made him work longer into counts. 

This approach is also why we were one of the most walked teams in the nation last year. It's a small ball approach for sure but it can certainly pay off when all 9 guys are stressing the pitcher.

I'm not just talking about tonight. By my recollection this was going on against Rice and Alabama.

In a lot of those instances, the opposing Ps could not hit water out of a boat.  So yeah, they were probably instructed to take until they got a strike.

I bow to your knowledge.

And probably last season as well. It's a feature of this offense, work walks, take HBPs, bunt, steal.

Left handed Greg Maddux was the comparison made. Not overpowering but just knows how to get the job done.

A true pitcher, using all his weapons (his stuff, his mind, his killer instinct, etc). I love our pitching too though.
