    Fiu Baseball. Diamond Dogs Take Series Opener at FIU, 14-6

    A new article has been posted on www.latechsports.com:

    After a second consecutive week with no midweek action, a well-rested Louisiana Tech (30-14; 11-10 C-USA) squad took the cross-country trip down to South Beach for a three-game set with FIU (26-21; 10-11 C-USA) which kicks off on Friday afternoon at 6 p.m. CT.

    More...

    No midweek games this week, and our series preview press release is published at 9 PM the night before our game... 2 hours AFTER the print deadline in our local Gannett newspapers... Let's get it together.

    They put a couple of paragraphs on page 3 of the dead tree edition.

    They're not going to cover Tech. At least not the way it should be. So why keep on looking. I have wondered if we could get our journalism department to start an electronic media campaign to do the quantity and quality of sports coverage we Tech faithful would like to see. Completely bypass the Times & Monroe paper.

    Even if there were changes in Gannett's regional management team &/or Tech's athletic admin, I don't think it would matter. Like a lot of things, news coverage has changed! Not changing...changed. Gannett has made their corporate strategy clear and covering schools like Tech isn't part of it.

    We need to figure out how to get our story out given the new realities. Thinking Gannett is going to change, or might wake up, regarding Tech is a waste of time.

    I'm not one who thinks or even hopes they change. I do enjoy pointing out their ridiculous business practices. They still defend them and have been going down hill for years using something that does not work. It's not surprising that they think they can operate like a government agency rather than a business.

    I'm hoping we start Harris tonight. I'd rather start him against the other teams ace. Feel like we're better able to outscore teams on sat and sun than fri.

    Yeah I'm not a baseball expert but it seems we always come from behind on Friday whether we win or lose. Our starter struggles, then we get a pickup from the middle reliever. Opposing team just the opposite.

    You don't have to be a baseball expert to know teams start their ace in game 1.

    From my point of view, starting Harris on Saturday is the right thing. We may have to use a lot of relievers on Friday and Sunday so saving their arms with Harris going for 7-9 innings on Saturday is a big deal. Some of our relievers can go 1 or 2 innings on Friday and then again on Sunday.
    We just need a Friday starter who can give us a 4 or 5 innings without putting us in a big hole.

    A win is a win. Wins on Friday are the best. Using your logic, we could pitch Nate 6 or 7 on Friday and have him for a closer on Sunday.

    We have been in a hole in almost every Friday game and our coach is extremely slow in pulling the guy who puts us in the hole.

    I think our coach plays to win 2 out of 3 - no matter who we play against.
    He doesn't seem to care about Friday game as he aims for Saturday and Sunday wins.
    This is the only logical explanation on why his pitching collection is hit or miss for Friday games.

    That's the way it looks. He has been consistent. Nothing says to the players "give it all you got" like putting a struggling pitcher back on mound when he is down by 5 runs.

    Kyle Griffen will toe the rubber for his first career start! He enters with a 4-1 record, 1.89 ERA & 14 strikeouts to just two walks.
