When is the bad news going to stop? This is the last thing the Horns need........
"Leadership is wisdom, courage and great carelessness of self"
Damn - who do you expect to start? Peters? Urban?
Bats need to wake up... especially if pitching is going to have significant issues.
We'll see. Not sure if Augie will change up the weekend rotation or just put somebody in French's slot and keep Peters for Saturday and Thornhill for Sunday.
I doubt that he changes up the rotation. Hopefully Urban can start and fair well. He looked really good last time out.
Big loss if French is not back for our next Big 12 series.
We're going nowhere fast with or without him.
Time to get a new coach who lets kids swing the bat.
Have you not watched a game all year? We haven't been playing small ball all year...
You wanna hire that Florida guy who was the "popular" choice last year?
Augie can't go and batt for these kids. Getting rid of the winningest head coach in the NCAA is just plain stupid...
Ummm, what? Wow. Are we swinging away some? Yes, maybe more than usual. The man is fresh off a loss on Sunday where he bunted his hottest hitter with nobody out and a man on first......again. We are still playing small ball
Sure, and then Tuesday Payton gets a single to leadoff the inning and Hinojosa grounds into a double play. Then Johnson leads off the 6th by getting on base only to have Weiss fly out. Saturday (against Tech) Hall singles, and then Stell strikes out. Johnson walks and Carter doesn't move him forward. Montalbano singles and Marlow grounds into a double play.
The opening game in Big 12 play and Hall leads off by getting to first, and then Stell flies out... Carter gets on again and Marlow fails to move him over by hitting.
Our problem is our hitters are not getting their hits in clutch situations. This is the players, not the coach. 2nd and 3rd base with one out and they get nothing from it? How is that Augie's fault?
We are hardly playing Augie ball right now... the entire nation is playing "small ball". The new bats are not driving the ball like they used too.
