  1. East Anderson and Slaughter if this is current. Pretty sure it is. AUSTIN: 1410 EAST ANDERSON LN, AUSTIN, TX 78752 – PH: (512) 835-9454AUSTIN: 415 W SLAUGHTER LN, AUSTIN, TX 78748 – PH: (512) 590-7540 https://www.lubys.com/all-locations
  2. http://stats.mutigers.com/sports/m-basebl/2007-2008/mu_32.html https://texassports.com/news/2008/4/11/041108aaa_749.aspx Hesitated to mention, but in 2008 Mizzou defeated Texas 31-12, worst loss ever. Winds were at 25mph plus all game. 9 HR's, Priday of Mizzou had 4. Mizzou was ranked #8, we were #12. Team finished 39-22, lost at the Rice Regional.
  3. What happened ? I missed it. Congrats to Pearland who defeated Tulsa 9-4 for a trip to Williamsport. Do Texas proud in the LLWS ! Tulsa is commended for being a "scappy" little team. Seemed to have the deepest pitching staff in the tournament, just could not make it all the way back after losing game 2.
  4. Not that familiar, Pearland seems to have the best hitting team, Abilene will likely counter with their ace McCarty who shutdown Eastbank on Thursday. You are correct, teams seem not as strong this year. Or perhaps there is just not one dominant team.
  5. Ms upsets defending champion La Eastbank 7-5. Great game. For an inexplicable reason (probably to save him for later), Eastbank coach pulled his starter with a 4-0 lead. Can't do that in the loser's bracket. You all need to watch these games. It is ok to relive your childhood.
  6. Sat Okla vs Ark, 4PM La vs Ms, 7PM Sun TBD, Winner of above games, 12PM Pearland vs Abilene, 4PM (winner goes to championship game on Tues) Abilene beat Okla 3-2 last night in 7 inn, but may have lost their #2 pitcher/1B to injury. Hurt his knee fielding a bunt, didn't look good. No clear favorite. Tournament will be won by the team whose coach manages his team the best.
  7. Be best to talk with her about her complete financial situation. Is $1500 the answer or will it just complicate her financial situation. It may be for high interest payments which is money wasted and will only grow. A bill consolidation loan and budget review may be in order. With children involved, it is even more important.
  8. I will defer to @Huckleberry but they are very good. Rick McCarty, head baseball coach at Abilene Christian is an assistant coach. His son was the winning pitcher tonight over defending champion Eastbank La. Little League baseball seems to be somewhat cyclical. https://www.littleleague.org/world-series/2022/llbws/tournaments/southwest-region/ Today's scores and schedule. After day 1, top 4 seems to be Wylie, Eastbank, Pearland, and Tulsa. Starkville is also pretty good.
  9. LHN not showing the Waco Regional though schedule indicates such.
  10. https://gc.com/tmt/summer-2022/little-league-baseball-southwest-region-tournament-62c71d4a6950b355b5ef9410/schedule Best time of year ! Road to Williamsport continues Thursday in Waco. Games scheduled for LHN. Will miss Keith Moreland doing the broadcast, have a full recovery "Zonk".
  11. McLean returning to OKSt. May recall he was their closer/3B. 3rd round pick, was draft eligible true sophomore (no covid).
  12. True though Walbridge looks pretty good. He may be a hidden gem. Redshirt junior, only pitched 3.1 innings at Texas. (injury ?) Perfect Game rating was 9th rated LHP in State, 78th in Nation. From private school in San Antonio, though played with good Summer League programs. At 6'5", looks good getting off the bus. 2023 Baseball Roster - University of Texas Athletics (texassports.com) Fall Roster published (minus transfers) with the 20 returning players including everyone's favorite Hoffart.
  13. Any economist nerds (said with respect) familar with Roubini ? Bio link 2. Note his explanation in the full article. Economist Nouriel Roubini said the US is facing a deep recession as interest rates rise and the economy is burdened by high debt loads, calling those expecting a shallow downturn “delusional.” “There are many reasons why we are going to have a severe recession and a severe debt and financial crisis,” the chairman and chief executive officer of Roubini Macro Associates said on Bloomberg TV Monday. “The idea that this is going to be short and shallow is totally delusional.” https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-07-25/shallow-recession-calls-are-totally-delusional-roubini-warns https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nouriel_Roubini
  14. Just read that Nadia Taylor has been named hitting coach at Michigan State. Michigan State just replaced the coaching staff after not having a winning record since 2016. New head coach is Sharonda McDonald Kelley, former head coach at Campbell, from Houston, played at aggy. Congrats, Nadia ! One of my all time faves. https://extrainningsoftball.com/nadia-taylor-michigan-state-coaching-staff/
  15. As stated above, Kennedy has graduated (Corporate Communications) has been an outstanding student and has a bright future. LHF had him endorse a fund raising effort for the academic side. Unless he pursues a grad degree, will be surprised if he returns. Definitely will miss his desire, tenacity, and play.
  16. https://www.tenforums.com/general-support/195715-few-questions-about-win-11-a.html https://www.pcworld.com/article/811274/windows-12-2024-microsoft-windows-11-features.html Many reviews on the 'net, one above. Limited reviews I have seen indicate no major upgrades in Win 11. Per reports, Win 10 may be retired in 2025. Second link gives a forecast for the future. Win 12 may be released in 2024. "Situation is fluid" I am on Win10 and thinking about buying a Mac.
  17. Searching for info on Southard and saw the below article. Sounds like Pierce has connected with him and perhaps Pierce and Williams have convinced him to return. Just a guess that scouts may be aware. Southard was selected by the Angels in the 20th rd of the '19 draft (40 rds). He will be 22 in October. Seems he has much more "upside" than some of the pitchers taken in the last 5 rounds. Will see what happens tomorrow. (excerpt) But Pierce was talking more about how Southard has been off the field with the mental game. That’s where he’s seen the greatest progress. “It’s been a long process for him,” Pierce said. “I still don’t know if he’s there yet as far as the consistency. There are some complexities within his delivery that sometimes concern me to really be on time with it. But he works at it so hard. I think, too, you look back and he had some struggles, some mental struggles. He talked to his teammates about himself a lot. About his delivery, about his stuff. We just had a conversation, I said, ‘Let’s try this, let’s quit worrying about yourself. Let’s start focusing on your teammates and what can you do for your teammates, if it’s one guy one day?'” After that conversation, Pierce said Southard started helping his teammates before games every day. He makes sure batting practice is ready to go, and he does it alone. “The kid started setting up batting practice every single day by himself, probably over a year now,” Pierce said. “He has completely become the ultimate teammate, and there’s not one player on that team that doesn’t pull for him because of all the things that he does for them now. I just see a maturity and being very selfless and being very concerned about his team.” https://www.on3.com/college/texas-longhorns/news/texas-baseball-david-pierce-change-jared-southard-this-season-mens-college-world-series-cws/
  18. Note that Monsour gives a "shout out" to Caleb Longley. Volunteer asst's can't recruit, so perhaps Monsour met him on a visit or personal connection since Longley is from Tenn and knows the Southeast or met him at one of Longley's training symposiums.
  19. https://www.perfectgame.org/college/CollegeCommitments.aspx?college=1745 "May" have been mutual agreement. Don't know how many signed, but Tech had 4 SS's and 2 3B's committed. Not to mention the portal.
  20. “It’s disturbing that this case is being tried on social media without any regard for the facts,” Morris’ attorney Justin Moore told the American-Statesman. “We look forward to dispelling all rumors and defending any allegation against Arterio in a court of law. “The right to due process is an important function in American society,” he added, “and we applaud the University of Texas for not rushing to judgement before Arterio has had the ability to fully defend himself.” https://www.statesman.com/story/sports/college/longhorns/mens-basketball/2022/07/15/texas-basketballs-arterio-morris-arrested-in-june-on-assault-charge/65372799007/ Moore is a SMU Law grad, only 9 years experience. Refresh my memory, have DWI's, fights, etc., previously resulted in a temporary suspension pending investigation ?
  21. "as the person my parents taught me to be" "saw my parents at every single game" Props to Jordyn's parents for raising an outstanding daughter.
