I would rather watch America Hoggers than this guy pitch. Paint drying would be a step up as well.
Is he still only throwing his fastball? I stopped watxhing the baseball team. I couldn't take it anymore.
Fastball down the heart of the plate, high. It's like he thinks that nobody can catch up with a 90 mph fastball in college. The guy is batting practice, and the most overrated talent I remember.
Tech won today at Norman, so Texas is a full game behind Tech for the last spot in the conference tournament. Tech with two home series to go (OSU, Baylor). Texas hosts KSU and goes to TCU. Tech holds the tie-breaker.
Texas battling Tech for last place... my, my, my...
I've seen it many times. Everyone knows what is coming...
Knebel has had a terrible season but he's not the reason this team is garbage.
The whole program needs to be burned to the ground.
He's definitely not the reason the team is garbage. He damn sure hasn't been any help though.
I still like this team better than last years, and am very optimistic about this pitching staff.

I know you are Captain Optimism but Augie is old and needs to retire.
You betcha - It's Augie's fault that these guys can't execute their jobs.
Knebel has not looked like an All American at all this year. The whole team is just terrible. We left like 8 or 9 runners in scoring position today. We are terrible at situational hitting.
Consistently hits 95
You can still adjust to it, if you know its coming down the pipe. Now if he was able to throw some offspeed stuff, he would be effective. No one will take him seriously if all he has is a heater. He is no Randy Johnson. Even Randy had his nasty slider.
Situational hitting, by and large, is a myth. Teams that can't hit for shit will often strand whatever measly runners they get on base to begin with.
Plus Randy was throwing 98-100.
So you don't hold the 3/4 of a century coach accountable that assembled this team? If not then who?
True! 95 is average in the majors...
Firs time I've seen a Knebel - Randy Johnson comparison. Knebel will be a high draft pick.
