Nothing is surprising with Hooten at the Helm

The orange faithful are already looking forward to baseball lol

The announcement that you can watch Bearkat baseball and enjoy a cold one late last week made it even more exciting 

I actually like Hooten a lot. I think he is the best x's and o's coach in the Southland, just has trouble motivating...

Either way, the second season of SHSU athletics is starting now with baseball here. Enjoy...

Final AP poll was released today and SFA falls about 30 points short of making the top-25. SFA finishes the season #26 in the nation according to the AP...

SFA back in the AP Poll receiving a vote...

By far their worst performance of the year. I know undefeated through conference was unreasonable, but a loss at home to one of the worst teams in the conference is not good. Corpus had one of their b

4 wins clear of 3rd place with 6 games remaining. Just get a top 2 seed and I feel really good about the Jacks going dancing.

Win both games next week (vs. UCA; @ UIW) and we have at least a first round bye...These are statistically our easiest two remaining games.

If Duke stays in the top 10, I think 7 more wins gets us in the dance. 

No way the SLC gets 2 teams in. SFA is 85th in the NET rankings. The next closest is Nicholls at 185th. Had SFA been undefeated...maybe. Had SFA not lost to A&M CC...maybe. But 1 marquee win (and don't get me wrong, it was a BIG win) is not going to get SFA in over the teams that are currently on the bubble.

My bad.......I didn’t know that the NET rankings was what the selection committee went by.

It's not their sole factor. They still go by the eye test, injuries etc etc as well. But the NET was basically built with the approval of everyone in NCAA basketball and is a pretty good determinant of where your team stands.

Rankings came out today and the Jacks are moving closer to the top-25...

14 points in the AP Poll. That is good for a tie at #32 with Cincinnati. Ohio State sits at #25 with 95 points

2 points in the USA Today Coaches Poll. This is our first appearance in that poll this year.

Ultimately these rankings mean nothing on the court and how we perform, but it is great publicity for the program. Not sure if winning out would get us to crack the top-25, but we would be close.

Congrats to Kevon Harris ------------ SFA's new career scoring leader.

He is the NCAA DI scoring leader. He still trails James Silas for the school record by 129 points. He is averaging 18 a game. He is assured 6 more games minimum. SLC championship would be a seventh game and leave him three short, assuming he scores only his average. Postseason game gets him the school record...

Ken Pomeroy trying to make an argument (and its valid) that SFA has performed better than the average bubble team. 

Definitely,  but our conference is doing its best to hold us back...We should get a look as an at-large if we were to win out, but fall in a heart breaker in the conference finals. That won't happen though because the Southland is a joke of a conference. We have hit that time of year when alumni are clamoring for a move to another conference. I don't think it should happen, but I do think a move is becoming more realistic in the next 5-10 years...

We are up to 47 votes in the latest AP Poll (#28 overall) and 15 votes in the Coaches Poll (#32 overall)

I just hope we can keep Walter Matthau, I mean Kyle Keller, for a few more years...……...He had a few troubles last year, but I love how he(and his assistants) get his players to buy in to playing defense.

We get at least one more. No major jobs are projected to open that he could be attached to. Plus after last year's dud, he will need another year or two to prove consistency. 

He comes off as a Kaspar type and good with where he is. Yes, Kaspar left, but it wasn't a complete money grab. A lot more to his move than money.

SFA 77 - Abilene Christian 72

Big win, and lucky to get. SFA missed 19 free throws. Ugly performance against a good team in a very hostile environment. Season finale Saturday with sammy coming over to play...
