    Midseason grades

    Okay, so the title is misleading as we are only about a third the way through in terms of regular season games...but this team is starting to take shape enough to evaluate them. I will not give out individual grades, as I would never single out an 18-22 year old kid on a public message board...

    ST. Peter's baseball should be studied

    After losing 27-2 today to a dreadful Lehigh team, they have now lost 70 games in a row, dating back to last year. 70. We talk all the time about the parity in college baseball. I cannot wait for the Outside The Lines special a decade from now detailing what went wrong with this program, as...

    Other games 4/25

    With no UConn action today, I figured this can take the place of a game thread to keep track of how our previous opponents fare. Look luck to GT against the bulldogs tonight.

    Midyear evaluations

    I did midseason evaluations last year, and spurred by those very special victories over UCF felt compelled to do another write-up this year. I will try to be succinct. I promise. Offense - B- So far, we have three players batting over .300 on offense. No one would have been surprised to see...

    UConn @ Bryant Tuesday, April 11th @ 3:00

    Bryant got hit hard by graduation and it is showing, with their 10-18 record. They are starting to play better now, though, and will want revenge from last year. Take care of business!

    Grading UConn through 22 games

    Starting pitching - B+ Cate -- when healthy -- and Montgomerie have been largely as good as advertised, despite Cate fighting off both an injury and a suspension. Montgomerie does need to break out of his 1st inning funk, but I am hoping that is a statistical anomaly that will work itself out...

    UConn @ Fairfield 3/29 3 PM

    Fairfield is a fairly decent team, despite their 7-11 record. They won a road series at Stetson and split a 4 game set vs. a very good Lamar team. They stunk in a series vs Penn and lost two close games to a strong Bethune Cookman team, but for the most part they should be a solid MAAC team this...

    West Coast Trip Thread - UC Davis 3/10 @5P ET, 3/11 & 3/12 @4P ET & Santa Clara 3/14 @9p ET

    We have three games against UC Davis, a 4-7 team that has gotten roughed up by the Oregon schools but won a series vs. Utah Valley State and crushed Penn State in a midweek game. I anticipate taking 2 in that series if we play well, but they will not be a walk in the park. They struggle to hit...

    Yes or no to these 10 candidates

    I wanted to start this thread so that people can make their opinion about the leading candidates NOW, not 24 hours after someone is hired and people on the board inevitably talk themselves into the next hire (assuming one of these 10 candidates is named the head coach). This way, people will not...

    Few things I liked and disliked

    Liked: 1. Defensive adjustments. When UVA dinked and dunked our soft zone to death in the early stages, I was worried we would play bend but don't break the entire game. Fortunately, Poindexter adjusted beautifully vs. a tame WR core and started playing more press. The result was essentially...

    Post game thoughts

    Just got back from the game. Maine is by far the weakest FCS we have seen since UMass in Pasqualoni's first or 2nd year (I forget which). To have won by only 3 -- barely outgaining them in terms of yardage in the process -- is depressing. This team seems a lot closer in terms of talent to the...

    Cheers and jeers

    + Offensive playcalling, while not terribly imaginative, was very good. I love the play-action passes with a QB who throws a decent intermediate ball and tight ends that can get open. The screens were called at sensible times and the run / pass ratio was solid. We wore down Nova tonight. Big...

    Quick thoughts on the game

    1. That was probably the 2nd worst game we've played all tournament long, though that has more to do how duck*ing well we played games 2-5 than anything else. 2. Interior defense held up well. There were a lot of fouls -- most of them justified -- but UK had to earn everything they got. UK's...

    UConn-Sam Houston State series

    SHSU is similar to us. They have very good starting pitching, good offense without the ability to get clutch hits when they need 'em, and they are horrendous on the basepaths. They have beaten Texas and Rice this year, but honestly UConn could beat those teams too. Rice is one of the worst...

    Thoughts on the game

    - UConn deserved to win. We did a great job containing their stud backs. Graham's running style was a good match-up for our fast linebackers and Shell tripped up on his own a couple of times. We moved the ball well on the ground and through the air and the OL played its best game in a long time...

    Thoughts on the game

    1. The offensive line was better today. The pass protection was still mediocre, but Whitmer occasionally had time to throw. The run blocking was decent, especially early. The wildcat was much more productive today. 2. The linebackers are all future NFLers. All of them. Jesus we are good there...

    Early predictions for the 2012 season

    First, our overall record... UMass: 27-13 win. We play a poor overall game on both sides of the ball, as we hold our offense back so we save some plays for NCSU. Our offensive line struggles, a harbinger for the rest of the year. UMass was a middle-of-the-road CAA school last year, so while...

    UConn Hartford

    Freshman Dettmann is pitching well so far...offense has stranded 3 in scoring position thus far. 0-0 in the 3rd. Hartford is 4-16 and was swept by Oklahoma and Kansas State earlier in the year. Beat them.

    Baseball 3/11 (Illinois, Oregon State)

    Illinois is currently 5-5 against a very tough schedule. They just beat a very tough Oregon team and have toppled St. John's twice this year. They lost close games to Notre Dame and Louisville. Oregon State is really good. They beat us 2-0 last year, though we outplayed them after the 1st...

    UConn baseball 3/2/12

    We lead an OK Lipscomb team 4-2 in the bottom of the 8th inning. The UNC transfer (a redshirt freshman named Jordan Tabakman) pitched very well today for 5 innings and Jolin has been solid in relief. We have completely dominated statistically so the score is actually a slight disappointment...

    Odds of winning the 2012 national championship

    At least, how I see it... 1. Baylor-45% Kim Mulkey has proven that she can win a national championship, and now she has two of the best players in the game in Brittney Griner and Odyssey Sims. Griner is a game-changer on both sides of the ball; she has the ability to both block/alter shots...

    More UConn to ACC smoke, assuming Notre Dame comes too

But they will not expand without Notre Dame...perhaps we are a double agent, and...
