    Baseball Diamond Dogs Season Comes to an End in Austin

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



    AUSTIN, Texas ó Louisiana Tech's baseball season came to a sudden and somewhat startling end here in the Texas heat Sunday as Air Force scored seven runs over the final five innings to beat the Bulldogs, 9-7, and thump Tech out of the NCAA Austin Regional at UFCU Disch-Falk Field.

    More...

    Discuss it here.

    No doubt it wasnít the way we wanted to see the season end or the team with the big name to beat us out. Yeah, I know itís Ďbaseballí and anybody can beat anybody on any given day, but still Air Force was only 31-28 for the year. If that was Techís record Burroughs would be having to talk fast to keep his job. What I am greatly thankful for is to see Tech finally win a conference championship and to see the likes of Young, Netterville, Jennings and Crigger be the best Bulldogs they could be. Surely there are some future Tech hall of famers in that group. Thanks Dawgs!

    "Somewhat startling end"? Nothing startling about losing when you give up 17 hits and only get 10.

    I don't know what these people on the book face watched. LB needs to go.

    Bad ending, but SO PROUD of our Diamond Dawgs!!!! First CUSA tournament win and 2 years going to the regionals! I hope we can continue this next year and FINALLY break that barrier of the regionals.

    To do that next year will be very noteworthy because weíre losing considerable player leadership and talent and almost all of our pitching. Whatís left behind in the bullpen is unknown. Burroughs and staff need to upgrade their work too for us to go any further in 2023.

    How do you fire a coach that won the conference championship for the first time since 1987? Difficult ask.

    Not to mention 2 consecutive NCAA regional appearances (last year as host) and 2 40+ win seasons. To even consider getting rid of LB is absolutely asinine.

    Re: Diamond Dogs Season Comes to an End in Austin

    The real question is will LB be hired away? That will tell you all you need to know about his coaching ability. I am leaning toward his not being hired away as he is another Skippy. A "good" coach but nothing special and the big guys can/will do better with their hires. Keep in mind the minor accomplishments of LB, like Skippy's, are nothing special to programs used to winning and wanting to win more. Tech baseball has been to a grand total of 10 regionals in our entire history. Texas has been to 70 and 37 College World Series. I have been watching a LOT of college baseball this year and learning about various programs and what LB has accomplished at Tech would be viewed as "oh, how cute.." by many other schools. We're just not used to any kind of success here.

    I agree, but it's nice to have some success to get used to. If we do.

    That sure puts us in our place. Wow, talk about a bite of reality. We really are just now taking a few baby steps. Just imagine what mightíve been if Tech hadnít wasted all those years following Pattersonís tenure. It all goes to show how much vision and leadership matters. The consequences of apathy can go on and on for decades.

    I knew we were doomed the minute Tech got assigned to Disch-Falk Field. That's the equivalent to playing football in the "Big House" at Michigan, or playing basketball at "the Phog" Allen Fieldhouse at Kansas, or Cameron Indoor Arena at Duke. They are all sacred grounds in their respective sports, and no one gets out alive. Disch-Falk is no different. Texas has won 6 NCAA National Championships in Baseball, and finished National Runner-up another 6 times. We're talking "Blueblood" territory here. You just don't get out of those places with a win.

    Woe! Texas State lost a heartbreaker last night. Oh, so close to hosting a Super Regional but instead, home for the summer.

    Some good finishes all over the place. More of the same in the Supers and Omaha too, I'm sure.
