    We just won the Southland Conference outright for the 3rd straight year. The tournament started in Conway, AR today and we won the first game over Lamar 10-4.

    We've notched several wins against the 'big boys' this year including Rice, TCU, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Baylor, and UH.

    We are currently 41-15 and ranked #23 in the nation.

    EAT EM UP.

    Coach Pierce has done a heck of a job these past few seasons.

    I was happier than a hog in mud when they broke the top 25. Lets hope they make a dent in the College World Series.

    EAT'EM UP!

    David Pierce (and staff) really has this program in high gear.

    I was an SHSU student between '06-'11, so I had a front row seat for the evolution of the program.

    When Mark Johnson first took over the program, they were a plucky upstart that punched above their weight. They played their best baseball in the postseason, as their first couple of trips to the regionals came after winning the SLC tournament since their resume wouldn't have been good enough for an at-large. Once there, they made a habit of making some noise, or at least putting a scare into one of the favorites.

    Now, this is a team that legitimately has the talent to win a regional and play for a chance to go to Omaha in the super regionals. They're that good.

    And it's probably only going to get better. The building block teams of this program were made up almost primarily of players from the Houston area and East Texas that got passed over by Rice, UT, and A&M. Now, SHSU is starting to win some head-to-head recruiting battles. They're really not a second-class citizen in the state anymore.

    I must have jinxed us by creating this thread, since we're 0-2 since it's inception.

    I'm just going to keep quiet.

    brah...it's all about the 99s. Ask tinman.






    ...and my contribution to Sam baseball...grew up in Huntsville (14 years)...never saw a single Bearkat baseball game. Did go to quite a few basketball games in that tomb-like coliseum.

    Dramatic win over DBU yesterday. We're in the winners bracket and will face TCU tonight at 6:45.

    EAT EM UP.

    So, we apparently lost in 22 innings last night, 3-2...helped in part by the 2nd base up TWICE calling interference on a Sam player sliding into 2nd. The first time cost 2 runs. The second cost a potential winning round in the 21st inning. It was a terrible call, too. The tcu 2nd baseman was standing on top of the base to make his throw as the Sam player slid in and made contact. He's allowed to get to the base and he didn't slide through it. Crap call by the ump. It's a shame that a game like that is decided by someone other than the players.

    Yeah, apparently we got JOBBED Saturday ni....er, Sunday morning. I guess that ump has never seen a base runner try to break up a double play? Really??

    We had nothing left last night. It was basically our 4th game in 24 hours. Congrats to TCU, they're a great team. And congrats to Sam Houston State for another fun season.

    We're always going to be a stepping stone. He did a fantastic job. 5 players were drafted this week, too.
