With the football and basketball teams failing to meet expectations, I feel like a lot of eyes will be on the baseball team this season and therefore more folks will be showing up to keep up with them.

More people doesn't mean the spirit of the board will change. Believe that.

I feel you. And we are good with criticism if it's channeled properly. You've been around a while. You know what I'm referring to.

I'm afraid you're all going to have your hands full ... lots of noobs with a quick trigger finger and a sharp tongue ...

I'm not sure I can stomach another underachieving team. I'm all in on the Diamond Hogs this year.

When you look at the Friday night starters almost all SEC teams will throw out there, it is going to be a war every weekend.  There is not as much margin for error in baseball as the other sports.  There will be ups and downs....with hopefully a lot more ups.

it is wild how competitive every sport is in the SEC.  I am sure if marbles was a D1 sport the SEC would have 8 teams in the top 25.

Yep.  They will show up as soon as we trail, every time, too.

Very true. Baseball is our last hope this year, and if we fail to meet the (nearly) impossibly high expectations of this team, those who have jumped on the bandwagon but don't really understand the sport will surely be voicing their frustration.

Athletic Department should just throw an un-godly amount of money into the baseball program.  It's the SEC sport that we can realistically excel in!

I am more than willing to become a hardcore baseball school.  To hell with football & basketball and their constant web of lies and disappointments!

DVH is the only coach I can listen to after a loss.  He actually makes sense & tells it like it is without regurgitating coach speak & canned answers.

If I have to hear Mike Anderson say "get better" or "wreak havoc on defense" anymore, I may cut my ears off.

When the Hogs lost to Ohio State in the sugar bowl I realized that they will probably never win a championship in football...just way too much to over come....when they fired Nolan and have yet to replace him with a coach that teaches or stresses the fundamentals of defense and offense , I gave up on basketball....but when Arkansas failed to make the NCAA tourney I was outraged and desperate to get the season started again..last year was exciting but still I am excited for more...football and basketball doesn't affect me like that any more

Definitely.  After years & years of "wait til next year" in football, or "Mike just needs his guys" in basketball, I've had it with those sports.  Football is what it is - We were good when the traditional powers (Bama, Auburn, LSU) were down, those powers are all very healthy right now.  Hell, we can't even beat Mizzou!

The only time i lost my cool in baseball last year was when we blew the 8 run lead against LSU. I have faith in DVH. Basketball, on the other hand, i can't watch a half without my blood pressure going through the roof
