The Lusitania, the Andrea Dorea, the Edmund Fitzgerald, the Titanic. We’ve seen some major shipwrecks in our modern sea-faring times. But the MMS Cowbell might rank right up there as one of the worst. Mississippi State came to the Hi Corbett Classic on a seven-game winning streak, looking like the Dogs had straightened [...]
Hey StitchHeads out there in baseball-land.
So here’s a few things I think we discovered about college baseball in the first month of the season.
Also, don’t laugh, they actually sent me a microphone and a “flag” as they call it. So now I can’t talk with my hands as much as I normally do.
Hey college baseball addicts. Slight delay in their posting of them, but here is the latest ESPN Power Rankings I promised.
Click your mouse here.
As expected, mid-majors like Louisiana, Sam Houston State and Seton Hall made huge jumps onto the national stage and national powers Texas, Ole Miss and UCLA had impressive weeks and made some moves as well.
And since you guys are so special and mean so much to me, here’s a little Mardi Gras lagniappe for you:

Today, I made the drive from Arizona back to Smogland, which was being pelted with rain upon my arrival. Luckily, the Doctor of College Baseball told me he was going to the much-anticipated UCLA-N.C. State game which was being played at the USA Baseball Complex in Cary, North Carolina. So I could just sit my fat ass on the couch while the Doctor made his rounds in frigid North Carolina.
I had almost forgotten that this was Alice Cooper’s hometown. The shock-rocker turned golf addict was originally Vincent Furnier and from Phoenix, where he ran track in high school and played little league baseball, much to the delight of his preacher father.
Thankfully, then rock-n-roll took control of his life. And he and his bandmates became the live act that would change the industry. Performers like KISS, Motley Crue and Marilyn Manson owe their careers to the master of the macabre with the black eye makeup.
There are three old adages concerning rain which I never believe anymore.
1- It never rains in Tiger Stadium.
2- It never rains on a Christmas.
and 3- It never rains in California.
I’m calling bullshit right now ‘coz I’ve experienced each of them, numerous times too.
After driving over to Arizona today I almost forgot about the gibberish… I mean, the Super Fine Friendly and Fresh college baseball copy I wrote for the MotherShip last night. The weekend preview got posted on their College Sports page today. Here it is if you wanna check it out Holmes.
Okay people, here’s the latest blabberfest from Mike Rooney and I. Hope you guys dig it.
Hey dudes and dudettes. Here’s the latest lagniappe, including my stab at the Top 20 for the WorldWide Leader, a Q&A with North Dakota State’s Tod Brown and my weekend wrap-up of what happened in college hockey. All good. All informative. All for you.
These aren’t your father’s Sun Devils, nor are theses your cousins Anteaters. Both teams came in with 2-3 records and some curious losses. ASU came off a putrid 11-0 blanking at what I thought was a pretty average Long Beach State team. And UC Irvine came in off a curious 3-1 loss to a team they might not’ve ever heard of in Wright State.
Boy, did these teams need some redemption. One of them got it too.
