Re: Welcome Coach Holm!

Sounds like Coach Holm is off to a good start in filling his staff. Well, Coach Fujinaka is in for a major weather change - native of Hawaii and has lived in California since.

Re: Mr. BUFFALOMEAT

I do not think ISU can sell a player's jersey - it has to be generic - at least that is my understanding of NCAA rules. I agree - I think it would be a HUGE seller. What if another party, other ISU sells the jersey, as long as they pay the licensing fee?? Kimmel would have to pay BIG money, before I...

Re: Durkac Fired

I hear that Rodney Kellar is rather upset his son got fired. From everything I know, he was a terrible pitching coach. Did not know much about mechanics - would often just tell the pitchers to throw to certain spots - instead of providing instruction on what it takes to be able to pitch and hit thos...

I have heard a rumor that Mike Current will become the new HC, once South Carolina is done with their season at the College World Series.

Re: Is this the year?

I would agree with several others saying it will depend on improved discipline on both ends of the court, and about playing as a team versus playing as five individuals and trying to be the "star" instead of just being a good teammate.

Arch Madness Officials

What about the conference bringing officials to work Arch Madness who do not work the regular season games? I found out today, several fans from another school has floated the idea to Doug Elgin about bringing officials from either the East or West Coast to work the games - so there are no lingering...

bb fan - you should feel very FORTUNATE you do not live in the People's Republic of Normal.

Re: Durkac Fired

I am glad Larry pulled the trigger. From what I have learned - the senior players unloaded in their exit interviews with an assistant AD, several of the underclassmen parents called and emailed to complain, and there were messages from concerned alums as well. I wonder if consideration will be given...

Re: Season so far

In College baseball - you can always make excuses about how "young" the team is - just the nature of the beast. If a person is knowledgeable of college baseball - they would not make those type of excuses. That is the type of excuse that comes from an administrative type who has not either coached o...

Ok, here we go with a history..... When President Tom Wallace was let go - an Interim President, David Strand was selected, along with a hiring and salary freeze was put in place. AD Greenspan saw this as a HUGE problem - he unofficially advised many staff and coaches to be safe and search. The disa...

Re: DeJong 2018

When DeJong got hit on the hand - he initially got back in the batters box, it was not until replay, did he get to go to first base. Then played the field the next two innings and batted in the ninth inning. All with what we now know was a broken bone in his left hand.

Re: Game Times Announced

No fan of the Noon game times - I would much rather have at least 1:00 or 2:00. Shutting down a tailgate at 11:30 has an odd feel to it.

Re: Season so far

I can easily say there needs to be a change made. The pitching decisions have been terrible. You have Senior who pitched the championship game last year in a 1-0 lost - voted at the Pitchers Captain by his teammates - only to told by Bo - he will not pitch his Senior year. Just a travesty.
