Feel bad for Scott Stricklin, UGA baseball facilities not up to par, won't waive out of state tuition fees like Tennessee ...

    I reckon them boys might as well forfeit. No reason to play the game if you don’t have a shiny new locker.

    I think the point is that "them boys" might not be the ones he really wants, because they want "shiny lockers" and, more importantly, a waiver of out-of-state tuition. Baseball is also about the Jimmies and Joes.

    Gloomy Griffith. He appears upset he has to cover Georgia baseball.

    Don't really follow Dawgs baseball. Someone clue me in on why the AD is so cheap with it. Not like UGA is a poverty school. Also, I seem to recall UGA always having top notch teams. Am I misremembering?

  • BumBum Posts: 1,387 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Our baseball program isn’t bad. We have some good years and some sub par years. I do think it could be way better. Much like basketball but overall a better reputation than that. Baseball will follow in footballs footsteps just give it time.

  • BumBum Posts: 1,387 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    All this can be conveyed without the gloomy Griffith on opening day!

  • MikeGriffithMikeGriffith Posts: 3,089 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    @Bum What was "gloomy" ??

    Again, it's my job to deal in reality, and there wasn't a whole lot to feel good about on Friday ...

    No. 1 pitcher got shelled

    Bats went cold

    Outplayed by Jax State at home on opening day

    I appreciate loyal fans, but shooting the messenger gets kinda old

  • donniemdonniem Posts: 2,948 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I think the game was "gloomy". I don't have a problem with your reporting on it. Expectations are always high for an opening game, especially at home, and it sounds like the team fell a bit flat. There are still some games left on the schedule.

  • BumBum Posts: 1,387 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    The gloom was why pile on about bad facilities when we just lost an opening day game at home to Jax St?

    We both say what we think as we should, it’s all good.

    They did win tonight though…

    Hopefully Brooks can get some movement going quicker rather than later. I've been following UGA baseball for a long time and I'd like to see UGA get back to Omaha and be considered elite. The state of Georgia is a hot bed for baseball and football. We gotta start attracting these top-level talented kids in. Waiving out of state tuition needs to be done immediately until the facilities are up-to-date. There is no reason UGA baseball should not be considered one of the best in the country.

    "...and you don't waive out of state tuition,..."

    Mike, why do you believe that is the case?

    and you have mentioned that Tennessee does this a couple of times.....is there any other SEC school that waives the out of state tuition for baseball players?

    Not being contrarian..... just really don't know and am asking.

  • donniemdonniem Posts: 2,948 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    If GA is a hotbed of talent, we should be able to recruit well in-state w/o tuition waivers. If we do that, with the new facilities on the schedule, we should be OK.

  • MikeGriffithMikeGriffith Posts: 3,089 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    @donniem you can't think like that -- your coaches have to have the same opportunities to go out of state as other programs.

    There are only so many elite pitchers to go around

    Stanford's freshman ace was from Kansas.

    Georgia's current best player is from California -- that's not unusual.

    Think about football: Where is Kirby without Brock Bowers? Jalen Carter? Jordan Davis?

    Georgia baseball found a beautiful way to lose their first game at Auburn. Error to tie it up and back to back walks to lose it. Not good. 0-4 to start SEC play.
