Munzy is live right now on sunherald and broke some baseball info on recruits and starters. you're supposed to be on top of this shit beagle. he also said that Doc Sadler ain't going nowhere soon. so there's that too.

Sun Herald?

I watched it. He projects the rotation to be Smith, Powers, and Keys/Powell. If Powell is healthy enough, he might have the edge opening weekend for that final spot.

Also said that Ostrander said that the goal for Wallner is for him to log 20 innings in the regular season.

Southern Miss should have no problem scoring runs, as they batted .307 as a team a year ago on their way to a 50-win season. If Matt Wallner played in the SEC or ACC as opposed to Conference USA his name may already be on a similar level to that of Seth Beer after an extremely productive freshman season that saw Wallner hit .336 with 19 home runs and 63 RBI. He also throws in the upper-90s off the mound but is a primary outfielder for the Eagles. Mason Irby, Hunter Slater and LeeMarcus Boyd are also among the more productive returning players on offense, and the team is excited about third baseman Luke Reynolds, a transfer from Mississippi State. The weekend starting staff will be completely new, fronted by Colt Smith who went 6-2 with a 3.36 ERA in a swing role last year. Preseason All-American side-arming closer Nick Sandlin went 10-2 a year ago with eight saves in 29 relief appearances spanning 56 2/3 innings. As a whole Conference USA is expected to be more competitive this year, and Southern Miss’ 2018 season will begin exactly where there 2017 season ended, at home against Mississippi State.

We’ve played quite a few NAIA games over the years in hoops. Wonder how many of those schools we have played are even credible universities. … tball-team

Fan: More intriguing series opening weekend: CSF/Stanford or MSU/USM?

Aaron Fitt: I am very intrigued by both, and I think we will have coverage at both. I will probably be in Hattiesburg; I suppose I'd vote for that series just because I think the atmosphere is going to be uncommonly electric for February, especially since it's a rematch of the regional final.

Fitt also seems to think that Ethan Small will be in the State rotation to start the year. So, we’ll likely see a Pilkington/France/Small rotation opening weekend from MSU.

D1 chat ongoing ... couple TTTers are perturbed we weren’t in the preseason poll. I like the “no CUSA at all?” comment .... as if this league is an elite top 3-4 league that puts teams in Omaha regularly. With the exception of 2016, CUSA has been mediocre at best since the AAC exodus. It is better than CUSA football and basketball though. … p-25-chat/

TTTer: No Southern Miss in your top 25? No CUSA at all?

Kendall Rogers: If they aren't in the rankings today -- they aren't ranked. USM is very very similar to South Alabama for me. They were heavily in our discussions. I really like what Southern Miss brings to the table offensively, but the pitching staff is a concern for me outside of Sandlin and Wallner. Two X-factors for me: Stevie Powers and Walker Powell. Those are two premium arms who could help take USM to the next level.

Marcus Williams had a great year. He just fucked up at the worst possible time. His pick of Keenum gave the Saints a chance to win the game. I don’t get why people just keep railing on the guy. Did he choke? Yes, but the Saints aren’t in position to win without him.

ECU can go to hell. I don’t get why our fans have such a hard-on for those guys. They do not respect us or care about us. If they did, they would have gone to bat for us in AAC expansion. They didn’t, and Tulsa got the last spot. USM was left to die.

Just a random thought that came across my head.

I can't think of anyone that I know that roots for a G5 school (other than USM, of course).
