    Tenacious D The law is of supreme importance, or no importance

    Just barely grazing the very edge of one ball, on its way up to your face, and where it then blinds you.

    This place is [uck fay]ed up. In a glorious manner. Where else can you find a discussion, in the middle of a baseball discussion, about the blinding repercussions of an orange m&m laden flying turd. Bravo.

    FWIW , Kendall Rogers of D1 Baseball said that he would not be shocked if Tennessee advanced out of this Regional. HE and the D11 Baseball crew picked 63 of 64 teams in the tournament correctly. He said that Tennessee was a big sleeper pick for them and has said in the past week or so that they would be scary to draw for a lot of teams.

    Also, Vitello said today that Crochet had been practicing and will be available this weekend after suffering that gruesome facial injury vs Ole Miss. He said that Stallings will get the start on Friday. He told Trey Wallace today that Crochet had steel plates used during surgery, so there is not even a need for a mask.

    Tennessee will play Liberty, a team that it beat 7-1 back in late Feb. They threw a guy that day that essentially was their go to midweek guy vs P5 teams so I doubt that we would see him again. My guess is that they will go with their regular Friday guy McInvale who has pitched in 16 games this season.. Looks like he has thrown just shy of 100 innings on the season... 10-2 with a 3.25 ERA... like that fact that he walks roughly 1 per inning on average and he has given up a bunch of extra base hits.... Liberty was much better at home this year than they were on the road.

    Vitello sounded very confident on Basilio’s show yesterday. While he stopped short of making any promises, he didn’t take exception to many prognosticators saying that TN had an excellent chance of making it out of that group, and the hinting that UNC is a paper tiger.

    Our ace starting off rough after a 3 hour rain delay is peak Tennessee

    I had the end of the UNC game on and I swear I saw something that said they weren’t going to start the UT/Liberty game until 11 Saturday.

    They ended up playing.. well Liberty did anyway....That was a lackluster performance by Tennessee... they didn't even look emotionally in the game. Stallings was not good, defense made mistakes, hitters let a mid week guy who they and multiple P5 teams crushed in the regular season look like Tom Glavine. Stallings was obviously off from the jump. Probably should have just pulled him and brought him back sooner in the regional. Decide to pull after they plate 6 and then they did nothing rest of the game.

    Going forward this team needs to desperately find a LF who appears to GAF. Multiple errors in LF over the last month that were either careless or appeared to be a lack of effort. Also, not sure I have I seen a team make so many base running mistakes as this team does. Ok, well maybe the LV softball team in the Super Regional.

    Quick turn around for a noon set start against a Wilmington team that almost beat UNC for a 2nd time this year.

    Vols blasted UNC Wilmington today.

    Good news that Crochet came back and threw 2 innings after that scary facial injury against Ole Miss.

    Vols play at noon Sunday vs loser of the UNC-Liberty game... Loser goes home, winner plays at 6... the if necessary game would be Monday around 1

    If all I have to do is lean into a pitch to get on base, I could have been the best hitter alive.

    I can't believe that sequence of events.

    That one Liberty player just completely choked. He had the hit that led to the disastrous end of the 9th and then the error that kept Tennessee at the plate.

    heck yeah. We'd play basketball, tap a keg and walk back and forth to behind the first base line
