If you want to be even more on board, go watch some of the videos on HOGS+.  Those alone are worth the subscription price.

If nothing else, watch the one titled,  "My Time:  Thankful Wall."   They have several "My Time" as a recurring theme, but this one will give a clear perspective of why this is such a good TEAM with an incredible leader.

 I hesitate to mention this for selfish reasons, but there is also a 30-minute interview by Bo Mattingly with KB.

KB's mom and dad as well as Taylor Ellsworth's mom and dad hung out at our tailgate all weekend.  As you may or may not know, Taylor is our grad transfer catcher from TEXAS.  Mom and Dad live right outside of Austin.

I did know that (well, not the creepy where her parents live part).

And Delce transferred from Tulsa.

I didn't google where Taylor's parents were from, dork.  I talked with them this weekend.  Rich and Leslie.  Nice peeps.  Rich drank my beer.  And I spilled Leslie's pasta salad all over the place.  Because I'm a dork.

Nope.  It was on the table next to the shrimp we just boiled.  I moved the shrimp and bumped the pasta onto the ground.  I saved 60% of it.  Ate the other 40% off the ground in front of all of our guests.

It was already mentioned.  It's a good watch.

That's embarrassing.  Looks like Josh Duggar when his parents asked him to babysit.

Well, I didn't want her to be mad that she made this big bowl of pasta salad and only 60% of it got eaten because some damn oaf knocked it on the grass.  Geez.

Did you offer her Jell-O shots like you did my 17 year old?

Nope.  Didn't have any.  Offered her some Franzia boxed wine though.  Her husband drank all of my beer.  :D

He did the same to my 12 y/o at the time.

Can our Admin change the thread title to Austin Allen's Cock?  If so, then put me down for 10 inches, at least.

Yes.  On the secondary market.

Ah, stupid me knew I couldn't buy them from the ticket office. But I jumped the gun and was looking on the secondary market before there actually was a secondary market.

Plenty of tickets now for outrageous prices! Thanks.

Friday's game has been moved from 3 to 5:30 pm.

As the top program insider, any idea what this does to the TV broadcast situation?

I presume we may be streaming only now?

Watching the SEC Inside on the softball tournament during the rain delay...they showed a great view of KB missing third on the throwing error that enabled her to score.  She wasn't anywhere close to the base...at least a full hand width away on the slide, and never touched it with her foot after she got up.

Another 1,347 of those in a row and we'll be even with the SEC officials.

Are you talking about in the regional? 

Those may not have been SEC umpires.  I don’t know how they assign for the NCAA tournament. 

And even if it was an SEC crew, it hardly meant anything in the overall outcome of a game.  So I’d put it in an entirely different ledger.

SEC tournament final vs Missourah. 

And yes, that's the only time we ever get a bad call that goes our way...when it's pretty much irrelevant to the outcome of the game.

It was 2-0 Hogs when that happened. If Sides is called out that could have been a significant change. To say it is irrelevant on the outcome is not correct.

In a game we ended up winning 4-0.  Mizzou had two hits and a total of five balls out of the infield all day.  That game was never in doubt.

On the play in question, if they’d appealed and called her out we would’ve still had a runner at second with one out.   The next hitter singled, which would’ve scored a run.   Then Gibson walked.  We wouldn’t have gotten a 4th run with successive grounders after that but would’ve been ahead 3-0 going to the 6th and Delce was straight dealing.   She sat them down in order in the sixth and seventh innings on just 20 pitches and poor contact.

To be clear, I’m not saying we would not have won the game. I’m only pointing out that in the “what-if” game, that out could have been impactful and one can’t claim it was insignificant to the overall outcome.

Regardless, Jesus owes us one or fifty. We got the break and I’m great full for his mercy.
