Re: Tulane Sweeps Yale Series

To put our early season into perspective: https://twitter.com/Guersmith/status/1764481189891493965 None of those three teams he mentioned even have a winning record. He should have just stated that UCI remains unbeaten after this weekend. We haven’t beaten anyone that would be noteworthy yet. I don...

Re: CFP 14-team next but only one auto G5 spot

Let the SEC and Big 10 walk. Make it clear that will be for all sports so no NCAA Basketball tourney nor any other NCAA championships for them. No one from the other conferences will play you in any sport. as soon as a sec or big team dangles several million $ guarantee just for showing up....schoo...

Re: CFP 14-team next but only one auto G5 spot

We'll be joining USF in the ACC eventually IMO, but the question is what version of the ACC will be left. I think the one positive here is whomever is left at least has some legacy name value. Even if its Wake Forest, Boston College, Syracuse, etc. And it seems, in spite of Duke's basketball histor...

Re: CFP 14-team next but only one auto G5 spot

As was foreseeable years ago, the P5 have now consumed themselves--eating their own young. And it won't stop at this. Next up variable revenue sharing within conferences--play for pay instead of pay for play. The individual school eyeball count will become paramount. If Tulane can keep winning, we ...

Re: Yale Series Thread

Actually, we are playing a middle of the pack Ivy League team. I think they were 10-11 in conference last year. There are teams in the Ivy League that every team in the over 25 men's beer league I umpire would defeat 100% of the time. Yale went 0-3 last weekend against that powerhouse Northern Flor...

It’s now full Helter Skelter. The NCAA is dead and buried. The only way to reel in the madness is at the conference level. If a school wants to voluntarily be in a conference then here are the rules you have to follow—otherwise adios. Yes. I think the P’s will be ok with Pay for Play the G’s not so...

Perfect example, the left handed batter #1, Oyama.

Re: UC-Irvine Series Thread

Wanna bet that we never have this many hit by pitches in a series again the entire season? Its not what the umpires are doing, its what UCI is doing that the umpires are allowing. We all know that AAC umpires and refs in every sport are less than adequate.

Re: UC-Irvine Series Thread

Did you look at how they're standing in the batter's box? Their back foot is ON the front line, in many cases OVER the front line, which isn't allowed. That's not "crowding the plate", that's purposely looking to get hit.

Re: UC-Irvine Series Thread

Either way, if you don't throw the ball in the batter's box, you don't have to worry. If a player sets up leaning over the plate, or moves into the area between the batters boxes as the pitch is coming, it's not an awarded base. Umpires notice at the time of pitch if a batter has his arms into the ...

Re: UC-Irvine Series Thread

Leaning into a pitch entails moving toward the plate on a pitch coming inside. It's a totally unnatural act and is so obvious, it's an easy call for the ump. I didn't see all the HBP's yesterday, only catching a couple of innings between family stuff. But I haven't seen anyone "lean into"...

This is really only weekend non-conference series that can help our RPI. Need to at least win the next two games to help our cause.

Their game against San Diego last night was canceled for some reason, so they'll be fully rested. 3-0 on the season so far, a sweep of North Dakota State, for what that's worth.

Re: CFP Goes for 5+7 System

What still blows my mind is why ANY G5 conference rep would vote in favor of the 5+7, knowing it reduces the chances for their own schools? You know their goal is to eventually eliminate all G5s from the playoff. So why keep giving in so easily? STAND YOUR GROUND.

Real test comes this week. Important to beat Nicholls on Tuesday, and if we can win the series this weekend that would be something. UC-Irvine started the season ranked #25, and swept North Dakota State this weekend so they'll move up. They play San Diego on Tuesday before coming here.
