    Yeah, I knew what you meant, but you know that our AD and his staff work hard to make everything our under achieving coach and team have done over the past two years (which, so far is nothing) as "record setting". Guess what. It's not difficult to set records that were never possible to set when our best teams were going to regionals regularly (70s and 80s). Saying "screw the past" is what our AD does best. He is not a Tech guy. I am.

    What was the accomplishment? It wasn't. It was a talking point. Like a liberal democrat does. Make crap up that means NOTHING. Are you happy that we almost beat the worst lsu team in years? Split with the worst Lafayette team in years? Lost two close games to an average Sunbelt team? Lost a game to a really bad SLC team?

    I agree with PD. We can’t make the leap to relevance unless our admin is willing to promote and our coaches blow the doors off. We have to win games we shouldn’t win and dominate in games we should win. And our ticket prices need adjustment and our promotions need a makeover.

    We will only be as good as we are willing to put in the work to become. So far, that's not very good. We think small and use our budget as an excuse to scoot by. It's like the fans who accept the mid-major label - if you willingly geld yourself, don't be surprised when your shooters don't work...

    “We think small” - sounds like the Reneau years.

    No need to beat the horse MLB has already killed: "for all-time single season records, no asterisk or official sign shall be used to indicate the number of games scheduled."

    Now, GO DAWGS to this year's team as they enter AND HOPEFULLY WIN the conference tournament.

    As a Tech guy too (when my wife died I had them carve a state T logo over my name on our grave marker), I'd like to see all the programs reach and maintain a position where every team they play treats good old La Poly as a team not to be taken lightly.

    Re: ODU Series

    We got lucky in Game 3. Burroughs took the game for granted as if it didn't really matter since we had already won the series I guess. But the truth was if we lost Game 3, our RPI would've plummeted to a point that we couldn't make up, essentially eliminating us from at-large contention. We also would've dropped from 2nd to 3rd to let another at-large contender FAU jump us in the standings. This was a must-win. Burroughs started Wallace over Mallard and had to sub Mallard into the game late. Mallard's 7-5 putout was huge. Then Burroughs pulled Bailey after only 53 scoreless pitches in a scoreless game in order to save him for early in the tourney when we already had everybody else ready to go Game 1 and 2. We immediately fell behind 0-2 after Bailey got pulled, and thankfully a 9th inning rally saved us. That comeback was huge, not only for our confidence but because a loss would've devastated our season. I also want to mention Clayton's perfect bunt hit in the 9th to load the bases because it seems like that's been forgotten with everything else that happened in that inning.

    Our coach acknowledged pretty much everything you said including the perfect bunt. He called it "maybe the best bunt I've ever seen"

    OK. Good. I assume that was in the postgame. I'm pretty sure he skipped over Clayton's bunt on the coaches show. Or maybe I just missed it.

    I said the same thing. Also, that bunt by the ODU player was practically perfect.
