  • Shockers v. Bulls: Last Tango in Tampa

    Postseason starts now. Win two or die. WSU's road win over #219 ORU inexplicably bumped us up 7 spots in the RPI to #98, which was the fifth largest jump in the Top 120. South Florida is #99 after rising three spots. TOP 100 MATCHUP, BAY-BEEE!

    USF is 19-10 at home. Shox are 6-14 on the road. Ambivalence reigns.

    Shocks seem to be pitching better for the most part lately which bodes well. OTOH, with the exception of a game here and there they haven't been scoring a lot lately.

    USF is probably the best AAC opponent the Shocks could hope for in a do or done series.

    Could go either way I suppose. May boil down to which team wants to keep playing the most.

      Knowing the Butler era needs to end, and being a USF alum (Master's degree), do I have the blessing of ShockerNet to wear my USF hat through Saturday?

        Yes, as long as that is the last time you ever wear it.

      Absofreakinglutely.

      Although, it’s rather humorous to think of WSU squeezing into the 8 seed as enough to keep Butler another year. But with this AD in charge, that would be enough justification for everything.

      So by all means, leave no doubt. So for the greater good of WSU baseball, GO BULLS!!!!

        Wallace grand slam highlights a 5-run 5th as the Shocks take a 6-1 lead. USF gets one back but leaves the bases loaded in their half. 6-2 headed to the 6th

          Shockers survive to win 7-6. One more win extends the season by a few more days.

            I followed the game until Paxton's grand slam put the Shocks up 6-1 then had to my attention elsewhere. Just now checking in on the score. Final score a bit tighter than I was expecting but it counts just the same as a blowout.

              Bulls survive 2-0 to even the series and set up the YUGE royal rumble grudge match tomorrow.

              Has WSU ever won a “clutch” game under Butler?

                Shocks get good pitching, but only manage 2 hits in 2-0 loss. Do or die tomorrow.

                  USF's Collin Sullivan throws a complete game, 2 hit shutout at the Shocks leading the Bull's to a 2-0 win and set up a final do or done game tomorrow.

                    The good news for tomorrow's winner is they make the AAC Tournament. The not so good news is I believe they will be the 8 seed thanks to Memphis playing one less game as one of their games vs Tulane was rained out and not made up. ECU awaits.

                    The winner of the WSU-USF game will be 9-15. If Memphis loses to ECU in their finale they will be 9-14.

                        RBI single by Luke followed by a bomb from Mason.

                        TIE GAME!

                          It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes for Boatright to make a statement or if he tries to ignore the elephant in the room like a strong athletic director is supposed to do.

                            Waiting shows poor leadership and weakness, IMO. The program can't take any more neglect.
