Big weekend all around, FB spring game Saturday (PAC12 has blocked out 1-3pm for broadcast), WBB plays at 2pm Friday, and of course, Baseball today at 6 on PAC12 from Arizona State.
The conference schedule seems favorable in that the arms should be rested and have no mid-week game before hosting Arizona next weekend. Also seems nice to face the weaker of the two AZ schools first.
Not much to criticize at this point. A few topics to stir conversation:
- How far do you think the lady beavs will go in the Tourney?
- Is the baseball team legit, the competition weak, or a combination? Is Jake Thompson for real (no) or is this another head fake (yes).
- What are you looking for in the spring game? I’m looking for improve WR play, would like to hear the OL looks serviceable, and of course which QB performs best.
- Any word on this new AD and what, if anything, he’s doing? For those of you on campus, is it a smooth transition?
- Etc, anything you wish.
Weather forecast indicates 17mph winds and light rain for Thursday, decent Friday, and probably not enough rain to delay the doubleheader on Saturday.
Likely rotation is Heimlich (Fri), Tweedt and Thompson (Sat), but who’ll pitch Thursday? Fehmel would have been a good guess before some of Casey’s remarks last week; could be him or Gambrell, Britton, or Martinek. Heck, who knows, there are a number of arms we’ve not yet seen. Pitching by committee?
Meanwhile, Eggers has a nice piece up on Andrew Moore. Or, you may want to speculate on just when Mike Parker displaces Jon Warren in the broadcast booth.
Here is the (REVISED) link which should get you the school produced stream for the series:
Reading between the lines in this article, it’s pretty clear these guys still don’t want to start McM.
If Luton starts the year and is bad/worse than McM, there is going to be hell to pay, on this site at least. The QB evaluation problems are getting beyond frustrating. Hard to believe a JC guy that almost every P5 team passed on is the answer. It’s like these coaches made up their minds (maybe before practices even began) who they want to win the job and are just going through the motions to give an illusion of competition. Also seems like they’re trying to make Luton into Falk or some other ideal of what they think a QB should look and act like. Hope I’m wrong, but I sense it.
Should be a good one vs Stanford. 6pm on ESPN2.
Go Lady Beavs.
