    Bradfield is on the do not walk list. I would have loved to play with him. Great player.

    Is it possible to pipe in a sound that will negate the pitch of the whistle? I’ve been sitting here wondering about that. Anyone know someone in UF Engineering that would like to take that on? Patent it and all the other SEC teams (and ESPN) will pay big money for that technology.

    Even better, offer him his own free ticket and special seat to all future Vandy at Florida games and task UF Engineering with wiring his seat with an electric cattle fencing connection that is set to his whistle tone.

    Didn't watch the game, but loved the result. Must have been a tremendous pitching duel to watch.

    You'd think the people sitting around him would be disgusted and complain.

    Yep. and one of them almost actually died at beginning of year. cant remember if 'flu' related or something different, but was in bad shape for a while. Not Preacher Franklin(original) but other guy.

    Another Vandy fan booted me out of a FB college baseball page where I was seeing updates. Think he got tired of being corrected w/ facts about Vandy baseball..lol

    And I still say, no matter how bad you think it is, its still the least offensive/annoying thing about that program.

    At least you picked a great time of the year to be accused of being worthless…;)

    Today’s loser’s bracket game (hounds vs horns) if all goes well should go 24-25 innings exhausting both team’s pitching and then it won’t matter who wins:devil: (sorry @gtj31)…..

    You have a legit bad experience so your hate is justified. Most others just wish they had the Longhorns baseball success.

    When I was young Arizona State was the gold standard for college baseball success.

    Just saying.

    More NCs than UT.

    Might want to Wikipedia that. Unless your argument is more titles by say 1981 or something.

    I thought that Arizona State had 5 and UT had 4.

    Am I wrong?

    Just going off memory and not Google or Wikipedia.

    And having a martini whilst cooking dinner.

    6 for Texas

    But two of those Texas titles are post 2000 so prior to 2000, ASU had more.

    Also Texas has 37 CWS appearances (most) and the most total wins.

    USCw has the most titles though all but one came in a 12ish year stretch like UCLA basketball.

    My mistake.

    Still, Arizona State was killing everyone for years and then nothing.
