Triple coverage today simplify it will commit to a special addition of double coverage live from rain soaked. Baton Rouge Saudi Baton Rouge set the lakers' again are joined by its by Jeff Palermo momentarily. Polite to open a 504260187. Text 87870. LSU and south easterly let's let's breakdown exactly what's going on now currently rice in Texas southern. Are the first inning of their match at that ball game was delayed it's the Lebanese to gain a ball it was the late about a fifteen minutes because of weather. It should impact elegy to that had maybe not that much. Ultimately. At that game was scheduled to go off at seven between LSU at south eastern. And it looks like there's some appeal it. Remain on that schedule as it stands right now for five minutes that the five minutes after the conclusion that first game notions southeast of wills start but not play. Before 7 o'clock yet just like yesterday text of the arena in person. Southeast. And opportunities. What there's there's all there's not after those give those but. We grade gentler go to our that you google.com columnist and Jeff overall. Just yesterday it if you Allegiant thoughts reaction that Seth and I talked about a lot last night as a sloppy performance by LSU and fortunately it didn't cost. Ask certainly was it was a a bizarre performance and see that type of their specially good thrower and nick coombs was an even wait for over at first base after Paula it trickled off Josh Smith school of and Kramer Robertson picked it up. You have to what you know just like hitting and pitching sometimes slumps fielding flops and had a bad game. On Saturday in a semi finals pretty committed four airs they commit five more on Friday so you wonder if they're going through a little bit of just the rhythm is a little bit off defensively at this point. It's like this like a golfer in the yet it's again it's just an anti just happens this way. Fortunately for LSU though it kind of worked out he won his seat Jarrett Bush they get that win. But an Indian they got the wind fifteen to seven has team events and I mean when when you look at early that was at stake for this team. Did you see him feel a little bit of pressure like you know being back in front of the home team. Be that overwhelming favorite over Texas southern people expected them to dominate it so much that perhaps state day. You know they they kind of red and that a little bit. I don't think it was pressure think there was a definite level of looking past Texas and pulmonary human genetic quite a few times in the post game. He even kind of that the cardinal sin of a coach addressing well maybe it will pull polish air earlier and use them later in the weekend like thinking. Beyond the Texas southern game and so. He kind of started it off himself by thinking no way that the players. Same way I think they really went out there and not what we can to show up here and we're gonna beat Texas southern. Basically it it's still they showed up and they built it up by eight runs yeah exactly that's who we were talking about Jeff yesterday actors and I. At least might take office was I was a little disappointed LSU he's we had been the B defenders went all the naysayers out there. In the fan base in the pulmonary user's. Weight to the post season fault are like now is that we're saying no this is different team. Pulmonary is learn from this team learn from this but. I can admit here that's where I you know I was let everybody sound off last night it. It it seemed pretty similar to past years just the way that LSU. Kind of not fell apart is this the one of the game like you said by eight runs but certainly I guess the lack of lack of discipline. Lacked concentration we saw yesterday its tactics reminiscent of what they've done. Two airs from Kramer Robert it was a really rough game for Kramer Robertson Wendell for 52 layers he struck out ones. That was that was really particulars is especially wide after it LSU head a candidate they had the three years and the first two innings. And that they had a chance that double play ball that was hit Kramer Robertson and the ball went right. Underneath his legs underneath his glove. And that was that was strange because you would have thought OK they had their little momentary lapse there. Now they picked themselves up that Watson's got a got belief formed up close and I'm. But there's been mistakes being confident. Next thing you know Texas southern as the lead again so. I think you can look at it a couple ways one is this team slop it a little bit on the field possibly to you can also to say. Thank goodness they got that game out of your system and how they can move on it and focus on playing a better game tonight. So you're not worried about this being a bit of fatal flaw all right this is not going to be there there there are issues Uggla Fordham and they've had ten errors in last three gains that I take it he will write off of this is kind of happenstance a little bit of a rough stretch or you think that they were starts he supports. I think this is just a rough stretch kind of go back to what I said at the time at the top where. Just like hitting just like pitching you can order your bullpen is struggling at times readers starting pitching you're not getting very many quality starts or. You're just not hitting. Those things come and go during the course of the baseball season for LSU I think right now there fielding. A little off kilter and yet that's what we were not really worried. Now it's not right work at at question too I spent fifty. Yeah I stand up on that side where it's like hey I feel like it's just stretches one of those moments where in they're they're they're slumping a little bit defensively and look. Just like it hitting. You can get out a slope really fast today they can they could be back to their usual selves feel it's just that in a baseball that error from from key Kramer Robertson would not work I know it's like we're some appier been negative we're just trying to. Recap yesterday. That's is that wasn't not dive off the glove kind of where I mean it right through your lakes is a total just. Lack Austria that that that's what that was clearly because whenever field especially this level with this team. It's one thing to have a haven't era throwing air but right between your legs like the cardinal sin of baseball for fielder how allow ball go. Right through via right through the nine adults can't happen but ultimately I think it. That they'll they'll remedy that LSU south eastern scheduled still for 7 o'clock start tonight for the box. Alex laying on the mound for Allah issue with SE is trot out a guys that that that I know Allan what Dell feels like. To be one of best kept secrets of college based. What's your top three year round pick and how it makes out texas' this is going to the result of this game could surprise a lot of people I've watched SE not just an hour talking about it in the elevator up here. That we kind of expect it to. I'll she certainly the favorite but I think it'll weather the wet fields and to teach him amounts now it. A very pretty fought and it's really fun for everybody who's baseball fantasy. It will be Anders for Mac show shall shall rollers how to pronounce his name. This is such that you start for him he's Denham springs kid his uncle Ben McDonald. He has another uncle brought blacks and to LSU legendary type of players. And he finally gets a chance to pitch in Alex box stadium on huge stage going Afghan analyst. So forward this young man I can't imagine all the thoughts that are kind of going through his. Had its he's getting ready to play in this game tonight because this this is huge he's done very well this year 19 gains. He has a bit as well down the stretch here but. Maybe this is where he kind of gets it back in sync and Alex Lange has been spectacular for Ellis you. And you just wonder what is that shaky start it's happening Zach it's it if they go all the way through all law play in the championship series he's gonna have another shaky start. You wonder what it's gonna come if it comes here tonight against the very good hitting team out these get viewed at stake and Richard Allen his statement this is probably the biggest game in southeastern baseball history I don't Alia the out of that. Oh absolutely regret that because. In particular is they come here to the regional battery a few times and it never quite had a team this good. Eighties they come they've played well but I as far as equipped. Heating and with the pitching and had a guy that they can throw a blessing he's going to be. Able to go toe to toe exactly pitch for pitch without at least not that. But I'm saying he can hang with with with this guy he can he can match up Alex Lange so they haven't had a guy like that on their pitching staff in the past that have been at that they have given that opportunity. And southeastern over the years they've had a really good ball. They've had a really good baseball program to attain Artie started this thing met risers taken an overnight that is taken it to another level and it wants Southland Conference championships they've won. Tournament championships this is there a third time in four years right in the NCAA tournament. But they haven't beaten LSU in ten years you know and you an old beat up like this past year Nichols has been an increase in history. Me peace is veto a lot of teams its eighteenth. Defeatist let's Lamar beat them notes that in state team but this Oakland team and I Tulane beat him by India or fats that are pro tennis yet to light won four times Robert southeastern has now defeated analysts' view. In these and I know it's just one game you know over especially at a Tuesday or what the united. In the regular season but this would be. A marquee victories so that it is it's the biggest game in their program history have they went. It's for sure it's there that you scheme they've ever won in the program. Special addition of double coverage to triple covers today with sent the left hip level crushing dark live from Baton Rouge LSU at South Easton do you like the matchup if you're a tiger fan you're alliance to. You tell us is that the biggest program at the biggest game in program history and also. What what scares you about southeastern appears LSU fan and obviously as we're expecting to really good pitchers mound tonight. We'll see fit into the pitcher's duel to the news. Every time we say that in be it 108 ball. Double cover fuels audio Adobe and RW to google.com columnist Jeff Palermo live from Baton Rouge he is set for LSU and south eastern. Kind of soggy out there rice and Texas southern delayed 22 point five they are under way though will then check in on the entire regional school board. So it will provide us with some updates around the country. Yeah house are that Texas game and takes them at least for now they now optimistic in any other hot start them. North Carolina's pricing losers yesterday in the number two overall seed in this tournament. Thereabouts when their game they're up 81 over Michigan. In the top and I will be eliminated Maryland leads UN BC thirteen to one notes for arizonans know where the top of it. UCLA's game away from elimination there's no score against India state Houston has a three nothing lead over Baylor. Notes or Stanford and BYU. And Nebraska holy cross its holy cross won nothing. Of those games underway some other ones coming up later tonight a couple of surprise. Winners in the winner's bracket David's. Hives that they went over North Carolina his rivals there. Don't play your school Christian guys you like Florida Google votes. When Earl planet kept it there metal plates Clemson a Clemson Auburn. Against Tennessee tech southern miss and the states. Now a lot more. South Alabama the jaguars but they played sticky feel of Celine it's that. We get the phone that earlier we state he feels we cut I've kind of adopted south Alabama while my. Regional surprise yes that and at Hattiesburg regionally and that's a team that can be dangerous decade. A forgot his now meant to look it up but he's from what bill south Alabama pitcher last night goes the distance in the game knocking up Mississippi State six that theory and he was top. He was really really tough now. From what I understand the weather is terrific in Hattiesburg so they're going to be pushed back they might be lucky to get one game and so. But very interesting and it can that regional you have conference USA vs them built up their minutes. And south Alabama battling out in this sweater Brack bell with names. Now look at the pitcher a look at Barack and a. I didn't jump of the conversation final four to 6018 semi tech's 87870. I confuse these attacks I agree confused with its Italy baseball playoffs though she loses tonight as the season over no. It's a double elimination format in a regional so they Google loses bracket at the virtually play two games tomorrow. At some point they're staying in the winner's bracket put. It's that double loss in the regional and in the super regional next weekend at military advances. It's it's who have three best of three series but it definitely it is legal action and each of these yet agreed yet now state. Regional super. Yet essentially. I temple MO only two thoughts on the Celtic team itself he says it's been handled them more in particular he said it saudis as the related team. Have they faced cal were pitcher like an Alex like. Looking. Probably now I mean Alex laying a first round so I would say. They have not faced anyone quite like. This. You know I played writes earlier this season and a non conference series and it took two out of three from a and they face Vanderbilt in the mid week. Earlier this year so they've they've. Based. Obviously Andy's got some quality arms but Alex Lange is. He's been pitching at at a different level I mean he's one of these guys that it's his junior season in his career analyses wrapped in he's getting ready. To be called any Major League Baseball draft which I think it's next week a week from Thursday it might recall correctly and he's he's kind of seen the light at the end of the time most career is over wept when he really wants to make its mark and he has stepped up his game to a level that. LSU fans have been kind of wait for him today get to hit he was so good it's freshman season he never lost the game. Had its ups and downs his sophomore season this year you. Really a lot of ups and downs means only 75 on the season. And it was time to CRA was above four wanna see even its earliest or as late as march in the season so this kid is turned it around east. He's been the guys ace pitcher today you would want to have on your staff and he's been. He's been very impressive now southeastern Teaneck at the volatile I mean eight. They have as many home runs its allies you they cry have more power hitters and Ellis got three guys that are lineup that have double digit home run so that's. Not an easy. An easy a matchup here for Alex line. How to match against a strong contingent of lions fans get their hands of these tickets today. It is obvious it's a strong amount of lion pride line line pride out there for four southeastern and a well what though who have long later on. Animal last night partly a southeast of sport trio network. He cannot forecast the last ice it. Line nation will be out there were prison and it support that southeast of because as we talked about how the this matchup is that school. I they think is so cool in this state guys that we see in this you know in a new el al-Qaeda before SE was here a couple of times is so cool and in this they yet. So many great baseball programs to get this kind of feel a regional. Quite a bit it's going to be fun night so I hope in this and those look like it's it's gonna happen or it's gonna kind of passes up here's a fun night. Here that the fact that the lines are too easy to I mean yeah just three C 21. Last night because rights made seven errors mean me. They get here by. Not winning their conference tournaments though. They receive the at large berth that way and make it and re relatively easily as a number two seed in the region I think. Until feel a lot that this is one of the better teams that they passed. What are you talk about Matt rise for second. And how you silly talk about the brought it to another level this program and I think he's one of the fastest rising guys that young coaches are coaches in. It College Baseball I just wonder if SE as a lot of success are in a success here regional super regional if he's gonna start being kicked around for some bigger job. No. With Oakland coach of the year 2015. Became head coach for the lines and 2014. Took over for Jay RT two. Really got this program going in the right direction finally got southeastern tibia prominent school in the Southland Conference. And risers taken it to a different level and he's a young guy and he was old port in 1984 its that race. All the other Vickerson. Our editors. A lot of people in recent iron to two way. Were set. Tells novel all time but now I feel that I'm hearing is that it is not that one night or Ward's latest way. In the minutes now and use an outfielder for the way. Albeit in the works totally new coat because that I'm in Ireland. And now it's why I mean. He's the only ninety's so easily thirty years ago. Oh it's he does seem like up and coming coach handled the matter of time for find another coaching them out. Say a thing about this perspective for him. He maybe pull all the right buttons here write this he chose not starts roller yesterday in the 23 matches these few thoughts that it's a even though it's still blocked shots at their best chance now it's at this to win the regional should they do that that's. Would be to pitch here in game two against LSU and catch some magic in a bottle. And that happens for some reason tonight or will it matter risers. Goodness I mean we news outlets but it's the tournament it's those. It's becoming more more commonplace where they ace goes in game two of regionals not just. That's just in this related costs such it is that you're in that 23 matchup it's not nearly it's easy I but if LSU loses that. You'll hear the second cancers with pulmonary because you've already burned to guard post in a game that. Let's let's face it guys they could've they could've gone Johnny whole staff and game and it would have won it probably by the same score fifteen to set. And self LSU loses this game that puts them in a huge hole because you. You are obviously out playing with Pettitte will pitch tonight posting pitches. I pitched yesterday so that was easy Eric walker and and through Caleb Gilbert yesterday a potential starter two and two thirds innings though. That will leave pulmonary up to some huge second guessing if Ellison doesn't get the win here tonight. Meet Eric walker is as good as he's been like you you don't want him eat and you don't want him in and lacing game like that's the point Natalie aptly you know three games you have to win over the course Saturday and irks me over Sunday and Monday without. It's he might have posted back for Monday pulmonary city couldn't he could peek its he would make an appearance on Monday if need now posted. This last pitched against Utah. Make sense for him pitch I thought in regional because well. You're very good hitting team. And Ellis really it's bars pitchers go. Post game and really nobody else remembering they Jake last night game on Sunday against rice and Ellis you ended up losing game. Whether helps out Ellis last year doesn't finish up until Tuesday. In the regionals. And poaching comes back and pitched six shutout innings and if this regional it's expected. That that's toughness of the young man two years ago. Lot at stake tonight in just a resilient lot at stake in state bragging rights obviously SE suits got this one earmarked as their biggest. Game in program history 7 o'clock scheduled to start between Ellison southeastern we'll have a four year. The world until 630 Jeff Palermo set electric cigar a special edition of double coverage live. From battery you rouge you'll hear from LSU coach Paul but very. After CBS news here on DaVita duo at Jeff Palermo LR on Twitter as well W alt dot com columnist welcome back special addition of double coverage. Says Christian and Jeff and you know it till 630. No rain delay necessarily for LSU at this point the first game between rice and Texas southern was laid by about fifteen minutes that still. Nine didn't eat too much into eat too much time into the wiggle room between game one game two so it looks like at 7 o'clock. Start as if it changes we will let you know but right now 7 o'clock or south eastern and Ella issue. What was it now what bill later on in the program phone lines open final four to 6018 Seve. LSU advancing after a sloppy victory yesterday fifteen to seven over Texas southern Iraq caught up with the relishes skipper pulmonary after the. Into the decision. Well there was several factors the first sector reform. Had we. Not throw the par three starters. In the first game and we're fortunate to win three straight and that one of our starting pitcher the stay on. And that would just say hypothetically he started he tackles that that first game and then playing one game to. And as opposed to being a air wouldn't have an opportunity to pitch and as well as he's pitching and I won't keep going. You can look for that everything's great we were in the super regional want to be straight here and not walk it's scary that. You go into Omaha and he's got its first weekend here at time you're asking that this isn't that three weeks. So I want all the confidence the world that your walker we're fortunate enough to get that championship game. On Sunday you'll be able to pitch and pitch well. And you know it's because we're starting here appreciate Martin were burned about. She had a game plays out. I'm not that Smart but I memory game not too long ago in southern. In game one where we are down to nothing. To the seventh inning and you know we're fortunate to rally tight games haven't been in the wrong way lately. I want to have Petro a lot of competition. In the opening game because. In Texas southern. They're confident. They have a kind of picture that it. It befuddled us for a little while and if that happens I wanna make sure that we have are our guy out you know it is keeping a low scoring game. It became unit develops in a way that's favorable to us. Then we can we were injured and later on in the series and group last year that. He'd be very capable of coming back lakers series which again so I just thought this was the way to go for. Several factors I started uses. If anything Texas the way back the how would be to see publishing industry. Yeah that would be really cool and you know. I. Listen that's not the top priority. I've made it very clear that we all honesty here which pages faster because the flu record. A strikeout record it's not you are a record it's not a home runs record it is a team record when you win games. And certainly here has been. One this. True wonderful young men that we had in our program for four years and I think would be very appropriate for him. Believe that record so I checked with the official scorer and see what it would take for an open I didn't wanna just pitchman a couple of things effect and it happened. And lose its chance you know to be credited with the win the I think there were rules state that if phone for use at least three pitchers in the game pitcher of record will be the picture that leaves the game when. You know we beat him on the leaders not relinquished. And you know as a way again where I'm going into games and it's going to be a low scoring tight bond thing. And here we've shaved the best actress and pitching that game of those conditions. We'll see how the game plays out but it plays out where we can take that early can still be credited with the win that would be a wonderful thing. As a factor that he's left hand in this team store hiring some auditions. I thought about that as well kids very percent if you putt well. You know. That but they have stolen a lot of faith was. Updating also left handers pretty well it over 300 books in it it's sort of Campbell there. But I think here is that caliber pitcher this. Maybe they haven't seen any so. Feel confident that he can it's always it would be. In his best chance to win. This. I apologize about that rule will mix up now that's all from back on Thursday that sounded like you stated that activists. So we apologize about that apple and set them leprosy director Poland to open final 4201878. He beat Texas at 8787. And the at the practice south Easter. In elections scheduled for 7 o'clock. The office though in particular the 79 hole yesterday really productive fields. Josh Smith in my here's the it's that Watson in an analyst at this yes they set it's that well your take on this. Yet it. Despite my ears he opened up the heat at first on with two outs that's been the epitome of this team lately down effect why it's in the Clinton more portly. People talk like the Watson home Monday and was phenomenal to moments at all. But without that at that appears. You know you can get to watch. And prepare skis batting average at the end of the season snack and look good. But man has he come up with system be it and that was another one for him in that game he just continues to. Keep coming up with big hit after big hit all season long. And you can watch media thousand baseball games maybe even on the Little League level. And your neck and I see too many games where you're number eight and number nine hitters. Combined for eight RBIs I mean that is impressive and when you have a game like work Kramer Robertson goes Oprah five your leadoff hitter in your nine guys and wrote Josh Smith and there as well. One note guys produce like they produce the next game. That's that's impressive and that's been kind of a met Matra for the steam coal frame has been really sweet and hot stick to. But the bottom of the order but between Josh Smith who had its midseason funk you know what freshman a lot of freshmen go through. Both Jordan establish himself in a designated hitter spot appears he's starting to swing the bat well. Moving Zach Watson a number nine and he. For much of the season he's if he's not the leading Hillary's neat that's looking at a right now he's nice piece written for her baton he has the fourth highest average and the team. That's because Eichmann and to plant to some of been hitting a little bit better than him lately. But those nine don't they haven't Watson there at number nine has been huge for this team and the bottom of this order is in. A reason why they have played as well as they've played winning twelve around. Yes Merrill Adam Parker skews really struggling earlier in the season. All the sock was what he's just that once me yesterday so yesterday he he drove in runs from both sides of the plate yet had real good swings on the ball from both sides of the plate I thought that he. And he had a couple of defensive moments there that I now Watson had a big home on the bigger home run but I thought he was Caribbean beat the Packers yesterday. Just the way it seemed like he calmed her caps Jericho jail comet except on working through. Looking through all those there's a stroke out there that it's drinks. Is released on it that's ultimately what's kept in the week it hit the ball well. Here in stark this year. Hotly but yeah out easily sell one issue I think he's up. And Craig Roberts it's. Set for the leader on the team that they might be. The chief leader all all. On its. And he's going to be tested tonight behind the plate because of this is the southeastern team coming into the regional 400 intense stole bases on the year they got numerous guys that. Good steel bunch I had ran ten hunter intent and they've tried a 144. And you know what Alex Lange where. You can't anticipate getting 45 it's awfully there's a couple things that your opened for Alex Lange won your hope and at his command isn't there an and you can just walk a bunch today and get an update it that's how he's lost in or that's how he's been beaten this season or you can maybe hope that you can eat leaves one up in his own and he can knock it out of the ballpark. But what that you're you're not going to be able to get off about flying is 345 hits in a row. Unless they're you know a couple of now loops and there you see NIC NI singles or say you're so southeastern if their gonna get runners on base. They are gonna have to be aggressive on the base paths in this game that they should have I know they just go out there and and and throw it all out there against the be your viewpoint in the box to Saturday night you're going up against one of the best pitchers in baseball. I don't anticipate them being timid and all in this game so if they got a runner on base I would imagine they're gonna try to steal. And appears Keyon lane even open appears he's been very good throwing runners out of the chess match between right seminaries going to be another think it's going to be really fun to watch lots. SE him in particular on base paths because. How good Alex links curve ball is he's gonna spike he has to have he's gonna he's gonna spike watched a lot of it is in and have a while pitcher so they're gonna guilty and it that heartbreaking carpal that he throws as so much bite on. That sometimes into the dirt and it's up negatively affected at the back for the hitter to hitter usually chase right but the if there's a runner on the unit itself. I'm sure southeastern. Heading into this week in knowing that they had the opportunity of possibly facing laying on Saturday I'm sure they've looked at a few of his games and they've tried to scout him to figure out when now power curve it's coming. What is he. Is it does he throw it 70% of the time on a 11 count or whatever it may be I'm sure they have all they have those kind of numbers. Going into this game and they're good at your right Christian because a lot of tough example ends up in the third it it's hardly ever. In the strike zone or it's at least down low and appears he's got to come up and throws the that's that's what they're gonna try to hold here tonight it's a double it sort of. Age you go it's working if he's breaking that thing audacity 59 feet you know it he's got good command on it but. As satanic in fertility that's if you view it up walk a couple of batters Jeff Palermo Christie Garrett at the lab here special addition of double covered under read it well enough about them. Our regional matchup here from Baton Rouge LSU at south eastern set to do it in the wind around 7 o'clock rain could impact that will keep you posted. The impact in the first game rice in. Texas southern aren't action right now for fall rituals were reports that the problems are obvious we'll start out but it's a Merrill let's play new NBC has its trivia time UN VC. Dissent for. And what's the mascara. Best mascot play in Baltimore the University of Maryland Baltimore County yeah that's an area with a mask yeah I would say so it's a movie. That movie that was remained. Plants once. John and John when was the result true grit true grit the true grit and I'll like that UMBC true. Rick. Great what I heard had a captured at an Indian name before. I think that is the fifth regrets though the great regrets that he how they're hit shelves and not really into that right now sixteen bit too. Gathered in the less under through rigorous and massed its sixteenth to Maryland on top and now one. A battle between us schools that are about thirty miles apart almost at Oral Roberts scoreless. Texas southern leads rights five to two Arizona on top dollar was route one nothing sandy you see it leads you ceiling. Two nothing proved to be on the Houston. Shutting out Baylor three to nothing holy cross on top of Nebraska. Who napping. And in the bottom of the third Stanford and BYU knows or an. So that the it's really surprising. In today's actions born yesterday it was clearly shocked at what that you steal it aspirants. Perhaps that is the bigger shocker so far was the fact that north to lose. There's no North Carolina Houston ends up in the losers bracket Florida State gives up two runs and then ninth to Tennessee State. And her in the losers bracket I believe they beat Central Florida built and at least that was the last Imus off. So yep North Carolina and that's a national seed losing. In their regional opener and I forgot what to see what that's that was but I think it's what 25 in a row that Ellis he's won this bars regional openers men accidentally president. That's an impressive impressive number and that's one of the things that you know for pulmonary his team's one native. When they've gone to the college World Series for the most part it's been smooth sail announce 2008 they lost game one of the super regional series but came back to win the next two but. Other than that they usually kind of coast through there don't have too many hiccups underweight alma yet to Jeffs. Here will be giving the games that were RD completed earlier today he did say 4661 over you CF c.s CF is out. Xavier. Be eliminate Radford 321. North Carolina eliminates the wolverines of Michigan 81. Indiana over Ohio and loser in eleventh two and the other one of the few in Oakland 42 over Marist was once the final with score right now and at the box five it's two Texas southern school now writes I mean that's they fell apart last night and here they are down 52 Texas southern that's I Latinos only I got a one year or five under one yet if they lose today they finished with a 500 record and granted they got hot at the right time. They ended up beating southern miss in the conference USA tournament who's of course the regional hosts. So they. They were playing some really good ball bullets meant seven airs last that that's that's it's tough to excess out so it's tough vibe was bad but seven nets that's rob. Will we saw that we saw sloppy baseball in both games yes wonders if I'm thinking I'm over that is the the weather was an issue for teams. Up to this game he wondered how much on the field work that they got and a Ella she's got a few twice this week. But you know. I think some of these teams have an impact about well only that aptly your counsel. I don't know if this was my mentality in Little League I'm sure these guys are much stronger in my got a but Rivera like even like a Little League high schooler like why are gonna play today or you know the weather slick and that I don't think we're gonna play it at it kind of messes with the and all the talk going into this regional was especially for teams like rice and southeastern who were here last year and how waterlogged it was a year ago we were thick and we were gonna get a read speed of that. And so fart. Knock on wood hasn't materialized. But. Yeah I wonder if that kind of plays and ended as well whether you are sorry you're you're just trying to gear yourself up for what could be a very long day at the ballpark India. You sometimes mentally fatigue yourself maybe anchors and I don't know I think that I would say the need. A little bit just discredit your point is the southeastern no airs this image is fantastic. Yeah if it was a field issue and their team that has struggled in the field this season I've made their fair share of airs I would have thought that they. Another team that has not been the greatest out in the field this season. Jeff Christian. It's set in audio specialist double covered polite to open at 50420 when he semi LSU at South Easton but he got. And like it South Easton upset analysts use this team as it is it says not to take down LSU with the losers bracket wouldn't. Eliminate them but so we put LSU India. That's not lose racquet on people that are pitched here coach also this game. It's now so your thoughts to awaits them text hates him hates him. This is Debbie get well. At temple are well LR and that it will not come cults also with us for the next couple hours in Egypt to regain covered scheduled for 630 on Ellis Sports Radio network and stand right now between LSU at south eastern. Now that is going to be some friendly trash talking com. The football game amongst the thing you know it in the delegating and it is no reason why we want outdated because of the weather we when we is that that we get wet on Ronald delicate that it. You and tiger himself through. But walked portly we've got equipment and everything else that we. Now put at risk but anyway I'll get over it see that bar that's the republic. I'll just realizing Jeff we got kind of a also measurable pro football around rivalry. Going to now if you model once that had an Al Wada all the others that are not looking forward to this it's true I at those live at a ballpark yesterday after the Dallas Texas southern gamma ray and it's a couple people like news that we're southeastern fans an Newark where they were fired up they really feel like they can make a lot of noise in this region. I think they kept I don't know if they're gonna win this game but I think it's gonna be I it's going to be that low scoring pitchers I mean many maybe like you rightly pointed out Christian when we think about these games and that's the story like humans and in like a 98 ball game. You look I'm not trying to discredit southeastern whatsoever I think ultimately Ellis is gonna have to be southeastern twice to win this regional yet they can be played at. And the plane and again they fail it's decisive falls to losers bracket tonight. After it Ellis who beats them then they're gonna it's been team they'll knock off whether it's Texas other right now Texas southern is on top. A rice or southeast it would take care business against rice again it face LSU potentially. I am not fronting me down. Not in doubt but I just think that. Given life to the whale she's playing right now and I know that by an appointment highlight that the fighters above offensively yeah I think it might be too much for southeast. I think so witnesses think LSU away their plane at this point. I don't think any of these teams. Present a serious threat Ellis what. It would take LSU beating itself it would take a game like they did yesterday were they commit fighters Texas southern just wasn't good enough. The tape are gonna have the pitching. After they had the lead they'd have to pitching to keep Ellis that do you think anybody has where has he. But the way LSU Salim vasser and now I mean vote but not consistently and if so rollers on his game tonight. And Ellis who commits three or four years and southeastern built a big lead at southeastern can come away with the victim here but the where does the lines go for pitching after this after using their top two pitchers in the first two games in his regional. I think in a single game for tonight for example they had to match. I for the most part but I think the office has been at some point com. The aggregate of you know that there and if they're they're that rule opens the field too much for southeastern. But I root Jeff if you commit to Ayers itself Easton area beach. They're gonna beat you they're good enough offensively obviously with the pitching staff etc. They're they're gonna the finalists whose bracket that's the case it'll remedy their defense issues. They can mutual. LSU and southeastern set for 7 o'clock right now the first game rice and Texas southern was delayed by about fifteen minutes but. The rule is that they can start taking 55 minutes after they're gonna start game five minutes after rights at Texas southern conclude but not before seventieth so. We have found out officially Thursday that way because of the weather climate but if the rice Texas southern game. Look at why that why the hipster time my 55 I that's Europe not exactly sure what's the appeal is with that. Very specific I guess is we'll remember rightly and 55. What it is round and a I don't know are just get really Corey go 53 I think. Leo you're gonna gonna gonna tell you that just goes to go all the way Chris might it might like or means that you in the press box today were really concerned Kabul. Natalie it's like he should see me in or you're really worried after after the three a little worried Alice frustrate like I said I was I was like come on things like this is that this is what you gonna roll out there the first and theme of the regional but it happened. It's way thirteen to get savings that's. You they got down five to watch the next game if I remember correctly but will be my favorite pulmonary ism. They are not robots out there that's my favorite Paul that area about there yet they're just not robots out there are so just because you that you throw out what you think is a outstanding College Baseball defensive team it just sometimes that the work out that way. Yeah I mean. I I I praise him though for acknowledging last night that he needs. In his house like he wrote that I love what coaches come on it. Because there's been coaches on this campus it still. Got out of it. While the other half he's line. You know the former bass bass we never really and I like it or they come out and they say you know what I set the wrong tone let's miles never missed. The fifth at the bet that ideal of equality equality in our Times Square miles took the blame for some things but a lot of times he was quick to point. His offensive coordinator for somebody else set the lap Jeff Palermo Kristian garic our special additional double coverage rolls on here on W annually commitment aka.
