    baseball problem--could it be a culture thing?

    a red flag to me is a $hitty Vol forearms our 1st baseman and not 1 player responded. what a bunch of pussies. We have a soft team and soft Coaches. I have heard our practices are soft and fundamentals aren't a big deal. We need to clean house. no question--just do it.

    We may have a culture problem but not responding to someone forearming us is not the reason. I've been the biggest proponent of being the Bad Boys and playing with so much swagger it borderlines on arrogance, but why would we respond in that type of situation? So our player could get thrown out and get suspended for a game? Personally, I'd prefer all our players be available for games.....we need everyone available.

    I agree with you, but there are times to explode and respond to an incident like that. That incident would've been the time. Many times you'll see teams come together after a fight, manager/player getting tossed arguing, etc. In a season like this someone needs to show some life.

    Bad culture, locker room cancers, etc. can hurt you in any sport. Hell, look how a locker room cancer like Dee Bost spiraled our basketball program. Culture and fit do matter.

    Dude--17 everyone available---we need to not let dickheads push us around. make a statement. I don't care if everyone on our team gets thrown out of the game. make a statement that MSU doesn't put up with that bush league shit.

    Remember the SC Series. There should've been at least 2 bench clearings that series.

    ^*this

    At minimum, there should have been an intense discussion between the 2 players

    Well I guess we wouldn't get run ruled at that point.

    I got run over and bumped into several times over the years there but I don't think any were intentional though. On the other hand, I was the asshole when they got on. Being LH gave me the perfect opportunity to catch the pickoff throw in the web and in one motion slap the hell out of the front of their thigh or knee with the ball. I'm guessing a few throws over and me doing that may have taken a step from them.

    The guy had done it on purpose to me is why I reacted. I was a 9th grader and he was a Jr or Sr...made noises earlier in the game when running to first. Ump and 1st base coach separated us.

    ISeenIt on here was a lefty who would pound guys at 1st on pitcher picks. He had people wanting to kill him

    They were both cancers. When you have to send a player to Texas for his addictions and he doesn’t travel to play with the team? That’s a problem. Let’s don’t try to re-write history here
