  1. No play, no foul. If the runner interferes, or in the judgement of the umpire interferes with the defense’s ability to make the play, the runner is out. Easy call when the ball plucks the runner and he is in the field of play at the time.
  2. There is a running lane from home to first that is marked in foul territory the last half of the distance to first where the runner must be if there is an interaction between the runner and the defensive player or ball. The lane is there to prevent what actually occurred. Any other baseline this does not apply. I in fact from third to home, runners are taught to advance to home in foul territory to avoid contact with a batted ball, but return to third in fair territory to unofficially distract a throw coming back from home. The call made was correct.
  3. He’ll need to buy into the importance of playing defense.
  4. Not at the game, so can’t answer, but Ashford also has two rushing touchdowns. Hoover up 45-17 in the 4th.
  5. Ashford to Pickens for TD’s of 37, 60, and 88 yards so far.
  6. Kevin Sumlin was also considered a coaching genius at a point in time, at Houston.
  7. Purifoy has only been on the floor 1 of 3 previous years. Didn’t show a desire to play defense that year, and team chemistry was lacking. Wiley has 1/2 season on the floor, has not demonstrated he can stay healthy, and it will be interesting to see Pearl fold Wiley into the style of play he has typically promoted. Lots of talent and potential, but yes, where chemistry is paramount, lots of unknowns.
  8. I couldn’t help but hear it. I think it was stated about 120 times during the game - a 3-hour bama lovefest.
  9. I think any time that McLemore spends at the 4 will be directly related to whether Wiley can stay out of foul trouble and getting the majority of the minutes, and not sure Pearl will commit to playing big with both Wiley and McLemore in the line-up together.
  10. You’re always one play away from finishing the season with whoever is 2nd in line. If Sandberg ends up remotely looking like the 2nd man, you get him as many touches as you can as early as you can.
  11. So there’s a chance we would take 5 WR’s in this class?
  12. Hope you’re right about the AD’s support. If not, hoping past history is not an indicator of the future. How long has it been since Hal Baird was our coach?
  13. Were there not two outs already? I was also wondering why you would let a pitcher off the hook who couldn’t throw the ball in the right zip code.
  14. No mention of Curry? Thought he was the latest option.
