You can't trot out your best pitchers in a mid-week game.  Just don't have the luxury to sacrifice weekend starters/pitching strength and depth for one game as opposed to a conference series.  We beat them in their place with this same strategy between the two teams, and they were out for revenge, and with a pretty trash 7 run inning we still came back hard.  If you think these games are bad for program exposure....idk what to tell you.


Mid-week games are mid-week games.  If you don't not seeing our aces and us at full strength you should try coming out to a weekend series at the Hayes.  But sitting here listening to people saying we're going to lose fans because we don't focus on a random mid-week outing is fairly ironic.  Maybe the fans shouldn't focus on a random mid-week outing either if they want to support the program.  Still it simply can't be denied what this does for exposure to the program, for recruiting, and for our guys.  I feel like 90% of people out there had no idea NC State had lost to us this month at home.  People that aren't going to follow the baseball program because we lost this game....haven't been following...and aren't going to follow the baseball program.

Thousands of casual baseball fans saw us look like s*** and then left the stadium before we staged our comeback.  My guess is most of them had no clue we had defeated State in Raleigh earlier in the season. 

As a long time season ticket holder, I understand the need to save your best pitching for the weekend, but let's face reality.... Some mid week games are much bigger than others.  The tarholes have even used their ace against us in a mid week game in Charlotte.

clt says the weather will be ok.

Weather should be great by game time with temps in low to mid 70s and very few clouds, if any.


clt controls the weather
Thanks in advance to Clt for doing something about all this damned pollen.

Welp, we can only hope that with our new pitching coach, we can recruit enough good ones to have capable guys available for these midweek contests. Word is that players like him. IF that happens and our coaching  staff stays intact, we will likely be a very good program going forward.
Meanwhile, its beyond discouraging to have teams scoring well into double digit runs against us.


On to ODU.

Everyone should read this article.  I was especially taken by MTSU's AD's comments.

"If we want to have a big-time basketball program with a national brand, then we need a more robust Blue Raider Athletic Association and we have to fill Murphy Center. When you look at programs we benchmark, like Wichita State, VCU and Butler, those are things that separate us. We had an attendance increase this past season and we appreciate the growth, but we need an even deeper commitment."

Who do we benchmark?  I am not being snarky, I simply mean that it makes sense that you cannot hit the target if you do not have one.
From what I understand, we benchmark against CUSA schools when comparing budgets, attendance, etc. If we want to take a leap forward, I feel we should be comparing to the mid to upper AAC schools.

No follow up from the Disturber.  After Knights paid them for days to advertise.
