Good win today. This breaks a bad streak for the Pack9.
This is the first time in the last 6 appearances in the NCAA Tournament when State has not hosted (and not been a #1 seed) that the Pack has won its opening round game (2 vs. 3 seed). Last time they won their first game as a 2nd or 3rd seed was 2004.
With Britt and Gilbert throwing a shutout, the pen is saved from much use as well.
Good luck tomorrow against TCU!05/29/2015 at 11:20 PM #86692
^ Almost makes one want to load up on coffee and/or Red Bull and drive thru the night (and day) to Fort Worth, huh? Or Forth Worth even.
According to Google it’s roughly a 17 hour drive, which would leave a couple hours to spare for dinner and a power nap before gametime.
Decisions, decisions.05/29/2015 at 11:44 PM #86693
Hee hee, I will have the power nap just to get through the full TV broadcast.05/30/2015 at 12:03 AM #86694
Sparky…turn off the TV and come to bed.05/30/2015 at 7:30 AM #86695mak4dpakParticipant
Great start for the team in Texas, now to finish that way. Hopefully TCU used up its scoring, in the Sacred Heart game. We can’t lose now, as season will be done, and back to Raleigh til next year. Hope there will be some television coverage this time. Go Pack!05/30/2015 at 7:53 AM #86696
We saw in Durham what happens when you waste too many of your allotted runs in one game, didn’t we?05/30/2015 at 8:12 AM #86697PackofMacParticipant
Running up the pitch count strategy by watching a ton of pitches (mostly strikes) to get to the bull pen won’t work tomorrow. Or much like FSU their bull pen is as nasty as the starters. Swing the damn bat jack!!!05/30/2015 at 8:56 AM #86698Fastback68Participant
ESPN3 8pm, ESPNU for whip around coverage.05/30/2015 at 9:16 AM #86699
FUCK. I already need my laptop to stream Cards/Dodgers. Damn you, ESPN.05/30/2015 at 10:25 AM #86700BrickyardMayhemParticipant
Nice game yesterday. Had a decent showing of Pack fans there all in red. I was getting a kick out of the TCU fans pulling for Stony Brook. One guy sitting close to me was explaining to his buddy that they feared the Wolfpack and therefore wanted Stony Brook to win. We were hitting a lot of hard balls right at these guys. Could have easily been 6 or 7 to nothing. One play I did not understand was Avent calling for a bunt with men on first and second and two outs. Seems to go against everything I understand about the game. We tried the same play with 1 out and popped up the bunt to the pitcher. It was also interesting to see how physically small Stony Brook was in size. The Pack looked like college guys playing a high school team. Too bad I will miss the weekend games. Really enjoyed the stadium and the TCU fans. All really nice folks (that I met – and of course, we were not playing them yet). Go Pack.05/30/2015 at 10:34 AM #86701Becton901Participant
Win at Forth Worth forthwith!05/30/2015 at 11:06 AM #8670205/30/2015 at 11:45 AM #86704

Do I need to beg. Lady pics, lady pics.05/30/2015 at 3:32 PM #86707
Collage Station or bust!!!
I already have my scissors at the ready, Sir.
As far as the Lady Pics request, I had already considered posting some earlier today, then thought better of it due to none having been posted yesterday before the win. The mojo gods can be fickle. Have to think of a way around it…maybe hotties who appeared in the various Vacation movies? But that vid got posted AFTER the win, sooooo….05/30/2015 at 3:36 PM #86708
FWIW, a neat row of goose eggs for ECU today vs FIU, pie-rats eliminated.
I even wore my FIU Baseball shirt today just for the occasion. Yes, I really have an FIU Baseball shirt, though I no longer remember how it came to be in my possession.
Coastal up by 3 in the 9th, trying to stave off a 9th inning rally by TXSO and avoid elimination.
EDIT – Chanticleers hang on, stay alive…TXSO goes home.05/30/2015 at 3:54 PM #86709
Raining like a sumbitch in Fort Worth. SB with the early 3 nil lead on Sacred Heart before the delay kicked in, bottom 1st.05/30/2015 at 5:15 PM #86710mak4dpakParticipant
SB up 7-1 after two, with the TCU 10-0 win not looking so dominating. We can take this. Pitching will probably be the key.05/30/2015 at 7:11 PM #86711TheCOWDOGModerator
We got one hr…before post
from Forth Worth..,
Somebody better get some tits up here.05/30/2015 at 8:11 PM #86712PackofMacParticipant
where the f is the damn game??? all 8 games are erased from espn305/30/2015 at 8:17 PM #86713Pack78Participant
I also have no video for ESPN2 (TWC)…
Edit: Gametracker now lists our start time as 9:05…wet grounds?05/30/2015 at 8:24 PM #86714GowolvesParticipant
I saw a few games today on the NCAA website that had a team against a TBD. How can that be on day two?05/30/2015 at 8:33 PM #86715
Start time is delayed until 9:05 (because of SB/SH game running long, btw).
I had an epiphany of how to work around the mojo factor of the baseball gods. It was so simple, yet elegant…05/30/2015 at 8:58 PM #8671605/30/2015 at 8:59 PM #86717Heelh8rParticipant
