While a sweep would have been great, winning the series and keeping them out of 1st place feels good too!

We have now won series over two of the teams tied for first. The weekend rotation looks pretty darn good.

It looks like we finally may have found our weekend rotation. :-D

The AAC referees are absolutely the worst in college baseball. I have been saying this since the first season we were in the AAC.

They really SUCK!

As I have posted here before, the only way the referee situation will change is if you or anyone you know steps up and certifies as a ref. This is not an AAC thing as much as it is a driving distance from Tulane thing. The local pool is the local pool. No one is going to fly in for a 3 game college set of games from anywhere else within the AAC footprint or anywhere else for that matter because the pay isn’t there. College officials might get a couple of hundred dollars a game, if that. This truly is a dance with the girl you brought situation. So if they suck, they suck locally.

Baseball = UMPIRES .... Other sports = referees/officials.

One of the "UMPIERS" (you right, my mistake), left the game yesterday. Was it for a flight out of town? Does anyone know the reason he left?

The above answers my question. :-D

I was using the term referee as a generic term. I am football official and specifically man the umpire position. In football the person who wears the white hat is technically the only referee and the other positions are head linesman, linesman, umpire, back judge, side judge, etc. I am am also wrestling referee.

The generic term amongst ourselves is an official, but that can be confusing for some. I know what I am talking about.

I had the pleasure of being a parent of kids on the same baseball team with a 12-year MLB catcher in the 80's & 90's who everyone would know. His said there only three truths of life:
1. Death
2. Taxes
3. Lousy Umpires

He always said you have to adjust to the umpiring of that day, b!tching about it does no good.

Well, that kind of proves my point. Money is tight for these guys. No official makes a salary at the college level and you might get a few hundred per game which may or may not include travel, plus per diem. No college football I know loves flying because they usually lose money but can feel compensated by the thrill of the big game. Some might even have designs of getting a pro position. But for the run of the mill high school or college official it’s more of a hobby than a job because no one is getting rich and oftentimes you lose money when you throw in travel.

as happy as I am that we won this series from Houston, reading the Scoreboard it seemed that a sweep was almost in hand until our pitching imploded late. Still searching for that elusive consistency.

I hope Big Jew got tossed because he said something along the lines of "now I guess you can catch your flight, kind sir"

I hope Jew got tossed for saying," You Bleeped Bleep Bleep Bleep", You can't ump worth a ####", You can't see worth a ####", "You ####".

Oh, have a nice day and I hope you miss your flight.

Referees are like crying. There's no referees in baseball.

Umpire leaves to catch flight as Tulane tries to rally against Houston

The American Athletic Conference assigns three umpires for all league games, which creates the chance for some games to be completed with only two umpires. Tulane, however, hires four umpires for all non-conference games, the school said.

The lucrative SEC, by comparison, assigns four umpires. The Southland Comference, the league in which UNO plays, appears to assign three, according to a check of box scores.
