    a 4.17 ERA through six games with an 18-run outing mixed in is not bad

    but ERA/BA are pretty outdated stats on their own and they're especially meaningless when looking at six-game samples

    If we had missed the tournament or looked awful in Regionals there were rumblings of a decent number of boosters wanting to go in another direction. I myself would like to look outside the program as I think it’s a pretty desirable job but with us making the run and Jr saying publicly his ideas on how he would run it I’m ok. We’ll get him at probably 60% of the cost of someone outside.

    Jr recruits his ass off, will be nice to hopefully get two more coaches that can recruit. We were Essentially sitting on 1 coach this year on recruiting unless you paid to attend the mike Martin camp.

    Jr is prolly gonna shake things up and will depend on who he hires as pitching coach. Hope he has a plan in place.

    He won't overpower you but has pretty good control. Started the year as our #3 pitcher but has become #1 due to injuries. Personally, I am not super confident with him. Just happy to be here.

    He's very much a control and change of speed guy. Pitches with that Tom Glavine mindset. Fastball is 88-90 and he locates really well. He can throw his curve and change up at any time in the count for strikes. He has amazing hair and the announcers will undoubtedly make a big deal for too long about him being from a small beach town in California. They will mispronounce the name of it as well and act like it's hard to say. That's about it!

    Think their AD Bjork isn’t officially under contract until July I don’t think, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they had discussions when he becomes official.

    What Matt Foley and double RL said. But I’ll add his stuff against lefties isn’t as swing and miss as it is to righties. His changeup seems to be more effective against the righties and his CB isn’t a sharp, biting breaking ball that can create a bunch of Ks against lefties.

    In his last two outings, his biggest issue has been missing barrels and getting his pitch count elevated. Coastal and UNC were able to battle and fight off pitches and not let him finish off quick ABs or draw weak contact enough. Then they got into hitter’s counts and got good pitches to square up. For Jack to be effective, he needs his FB to both locate and have enough movement to produce weaker contact.

    So against our aggressive offense he’ll get a lot of short pitch AB’s.

    That’s possible and the hope from our end. Patient hitting teams with a lot of lefties are his biggest struggle IMO because he’s around the zone a lot with 3 pitches but doesn’t get those swings and misses on his CB. Using your aggressiveness against you is easier said than done, and if Jack can’t throw all three for strikes consistently, he’s not going to scare anyone with his FB and will get hit.

    Time for the annual welcome to our fair city baseball people! Get lunch at Block 16 (specifically the Croque Garcon burger or my favorite the Deluxe shaved prime rib sandwich), and steaks at 801 Chophouse. The Drover is still closed because of a fire I believe :( Hit up the Capitol District at night and find a whore who goes to Creighton and hate fuck her. Bottom line, just spend lots of $$$ so our economy stays strong.

    Lastly, although you may be watching a game like Miss. St vs. Texas Tech, remember that in every CWS game every year, the vast majority of fans that fill up that ballpark are in reality Husk fans. Therefore, when you think of the Big Red in the future, remember us fondly.

    Good luck, god bless, and GBR!

    Yeah in a month or two.

    Their steaks are fantastic but IMO its not the best steakhouse in Omaha. Maybe top 3. There's obviously an absolute ton of them here to choose from.

    we're 2-0 in games i've attended. 2004 super regional i watched us win game one behind first base dugout like a normal person and game two i violently threw up behind temporary bleachers in hog pen.
