No mid-week games this week as we enter Week 2 of the C-USA schedule. The first 4 game weekend really seemed like a grind.
We are 14-9 (3-1 CUSA) with an RPI of 41.
Big series this weekend at the Hayes as we host FAU. One of the favorites in the east division of C-USA, they were once ranked earlier in the season. They are 14-9 (4-0 C-USA) with an RPI of 96, They play at FGCU on Tuesday before coming to CLT.
It was a busy week in the rankings with Vandy and Arkansas holding steady at the top, while Texas moved into the top five and two teams entered the ranks.
Est. reading time: 8 minutes
I don’t follow baseball a lot but this seems like a huge series. With FAU having 8 games against 9-11 FIU they would seems to have the easier path to the East title.
FAU has a 26 year old Army Ranger playing OF. Cool story.
Austin Knight is going to be on with Daron Sutton and Hunter Pence this week. I’m looking for a link to watch/listen.
FAU is playing FGCU now if anyone is interested in watching on youtube:

From our podcast last night; sounds like Elwood is back, Furman close to being back, Pilloli and McCabe still working their way back.
We really need McCabe and Pilolli back…especially McCabes power.
