"Let's see if you still feel that way in a couple of weeks when you have to wade through six, eight or ten pages of messages (or more) to find one particular game that you're interested in. A lot of busy, multi-tasking folks will just give up and move on rather than try to read the whole "file cabinet." "

I agree, it is stupid idea. Newcomers will have to weed through 100+ posts to read the thread.

To each their own. If you don't want to comment on it, don't.

As of 4/15: Overall 15-18, Conference 7-7

Next 3:

4/16 (Tues 6pm) - @ East Tennessee State (25-10)

4/18 (Thurs 7pm) - @ Troy (19-17)
4/19 (Fri 7pm) - @Troy
4/20 (Sat 2pm) - @ Troy

If we could beat ETSU and take 2 against Troy we'll be set up really nicely going forward.

It’s pretty easy to go to the last page, I bet even a cave man can do it.

Not a good idea guys. I don’t check this more than 1x every 2-3 days and annoying to sort back through. Was it that difficult to start a new thread?

The idea came to be because:

a) not all baseball games (and very few softball games) had threads - a shame because both teams are better this year,
b) some threads were posted pre-game, some mid-game, some post-game
c) threads were named differently depending on who posted them (so you'd have to decipher what thread is what),
d) some game threads had fewer than 2 or 3 comments - ie nobody bothered to even discuss some of the games
e) some of the biggest threads on this board are long running mega-threads that cover multiple facets of the same topic.

Just giving this a try...if it takes off it takes off...if not, we can always go back to the old way of sorting through sporadic, missing, and un-commented-on threads.

Edit: 6 hits

Be that as it may, however, it would be nice to start winning these mid week games against teams from smaller conferences. The losses are starting to add up.

You're not wrong but we've definitely improved since last year. Work in progress my man.

We are at 15 wins already. Last year's total was 18. We will eclipse last year's record. I find it frustrating too, but discounting the SoCon or Big South in baseball is dangerous. Technically, CCU was still in the Big South when they won the national championship weren't they? The SoCon has always had good teams and ETSU is sitting at an RPI of 133 which is 40+ places above App. I would love to be winning these games also but this wasn't an upset. They were the favored home team.

Until App starts funding all the available baseball scholarships, we are kidding ourselves when claiming conference superiority. Yes, the Sun Belt is a stronger conference but our program is still building. We are still building the talent pool on our roster as well as the financial health of the program. The trends are all positive and things appear to be on track. Patience isn't one of my strong suits but it does take time.

"NCAA D1 baseball programs are allowed to offer a maximum of 11.7 athletic scholarships, which can be divided up among a maximum of 27 players. A D1 player on scholarship must receive a minimum scholarship of 25% of the total cost of attendance. D2 can offer 9 scholarships." - KeepPlayingBaseball.org

That's why there's so much parity in college baseball. A kid may choose a sunbelt school because they can offer a 70% scholarship whereas his best ACC offer may only be 40%.

Does anybody know if we're funding the full 11.7?
