Arizona has done it all year: Explode for a big inning. If you take away their 4th, when they strung together five consecutive one-out hits, UCLA would have limited Arizona to a one-hit shutout. Instead they finish with 6 hits to UCLA's 5, but the Bruins get blanked.

Just logged on and saw the fistbumps. Sorry I missed a close finish. ASU, care to rehash that 9th inning with a little more ingles? Did the 3rd base ump call a check swing a strike on ball four?

Florida 0-2 and BBQ. I'm happy for Kent State.

I just watched the 9th inning on ESPN's replay. That pitching by Kent State was atrocious. If I were a Golden Flash fan, I would have died or destroyed something just watching 11 straight balls to lead off the inning. And that guy who was called out on the check swing SHOULD have been walked on the previous pitch, which was way outside. But I guess the home plate ump failed to call a couple other pitches that were much closer already. Still, Kent State was lucky.

And then they get to face either Arkansas again or South Carolina in a couple days.

I just realized something: South Carolina head coach Ray Tanner looks a LOT like Beaver Bob. Trust me.

Kind of ironic.... A Cock who looks like a Beaver. Green Tongue

I know, I'm sorry. I guess I read too many of Bob's and Florida Beaver's comments on beavers. But I'm waiting for Bob to deny the similarity.

Bob, here's a pic of Tanner.

I think if I photoshopped the bill of his cap and that logo (that kinda looks like an overlapping O and an S) to make the red look a little oranger, you could envision BeaverBob hitting infield practice at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field.

Do you mean Orel Hershiser and the geezer who wears lavender shirts and purple ties? On the ESPN broadcast? Not at all. I was pulling for Arkansas and I did not hear a lot of bia either way. In fact, I like Hershiser because he gives info from a pitcher's perspective regardless of who's playing. He plays no favorites. The geezer is kind of annooying and sticks to whatever blurbs the ESPN staff provides: The magic of 22 consecutive postseason wins, Ray Tanner's teams have come from behind to win x of those games, y of them were extra inning games, blah, blah.... But overall, I think they present unbiased viewpoints.

I have a photo my son took of Bob, OpihiMan, and me at the Civil War, but I don't feel at liberty to publish items like that without approval from the involved parties.

Am I missing more. Any help?

I'll take a look at it my friend.

Who are you? Are you new to this board? How did you get so many posts? Nobody has seen or heard from you in a month.

Two walked-in runs? Yikes.

For those who prefer GameTracker (I do) to the one on the d1baseball.com link:

Remarkable resemblance, ain't it?

Okay, here's Bob, Opihi, and yours truly. My PS trial SW license just ran out so I can't adjust the colors, which are very orange...not sure why. Providing a link cuz it's wide and will screw up this thread again.

FSU gets out of a bases-loaded nobody-out jam with three straight K's. Wow.

I have scores for the upper bracket, and I can make some guesses about who will score points in the lower bracket. Just some quick factoids:
  • Only one person (out of nine) successfully picked both Arizona as the #1 and FSU as the runner-up in the upper bracket: Florida Beaver.
  • Only Rowdy correctly picked Arizona 3-0.
  • Only MostUnknown correctly picked FSU 2-2.
  • All nine players got at least partial points for the upper bracket. Excluding the three already mentioned (who lead right now), the other six picked either Arizona to finish 2nd or FSU to finish 1st.
  • All nine players will also score some points on the lower bracket, regardless of who wins tonight or tomorrow (if necessary).

Congrats, Wildcats. They are going to be tough to beat. Ark or SoCar could shut them out for seven or eight innings and still end up losing a game by 5 to 10 runs.

Wha'd y'all think of that noncontact "interference" call on the throw from home that never got thrown cuz the Hog backstop lost the ball out of his throwing hand before he even made a motion to throw it? Never touched the batter, who DID cross the plate, unfortunately.

I'm not impressed with the interference calls so far.

That was a nice 1-6-3 DP on the bunt.

Too bad you can't mute just the geezer in lavender. I like Hershiser's commentary. The lavender geezer needs to retire and find a nice Nordstrom lounge to hang out in.

What is that Cock reliever chewing on? I know that sounds like a gross question, especially if taken out of context, but watching him chew on that piece of plastic or whatever is gross.

Ideas to increase traffic on this forum

Dodger Matt
Dodger Matt
The elephant in the room here is Kendall's former forum--Rivals. It seems to be (as one of our major posters here claimed) "a little more national with actual fans outside the Pac-12". And I admit, the discussions there often seem to be on a much higher level about the sport of college baseball compared to the specific Pac-12 detail we have here on PG. Yes, we have a few non-Pac posters here, but I am not entirely happy that they are such a minority. So I have been thinking about ways to draw traffic and discussion here. Tell me what you think of the following ideas.
  • I think we have the Pac-12 stuff covered (for now), but what about the other conferences? Should we entice a prolific SEC, ACC, Big XII, Big West, ConfUSA fan (who is known to start a bunch of topics and spearhead such discussion) to start posting on those respective conferences? What if one of the many Beaver fans on this board or a Duck fan with too much time on his hands "adopted" another conference and started posting topics about other conferences?
  • Corollary to the above bullet, assume one of our regular posters created a secondary account...such as RiverGator or Florida Cock...and pretended to be a fan of one of the teams not well represented here on PG. Would that draw fans and discussion?
  • Promote someone to be the forum "jackass" who pisses everyone off and encourages even the most timid lurker into posting a rebuttal. If you have ever read a post from "ignored user" at Rivals, you'll know what I mean. Folks whose second or third ever post is a long diatribe against the village jackass get riled up easily by trolls like that. Do we need one here? At least for a short time?
  • Recruit someone with national name recognition, such as Kendall Rogers (for those of you who have heard of him), to start posting occasional topics for discussion.
  • Have the regular posters here commit to posting to every topic that is started at least one time, especially if the topic is started by an irregular poster. Some of the time the topic is so specific that I have had no idea how to respond intelligently, so I have passed. Maybe even an occasional dumass response would be better than nothing. No?
Any other ideas?
