2017 NCAA Tournament - ORU's 27th Appearance

Recommended Posts

Folmar knows what he's doing...I thought Ausua might go in game 2 but no argument from TheEagleman starting the guy who has been our most consistant hurler all season in the opener against a Top 12 team....and not a huge drop off when we come back with McGregor on Saturday and hopefully McMinn gets a shot in game 3....I will be very disappointed if ORU goes two and out....Hogs will be very tough and the crowd will be boisterous....besides, what else do people in Arkansas have to do on a Friday night?........:eagles:

i like the decision too Eagleman.....win or lose, throw out the most consistent arm and hope for the best.

i'd bet on McMinn throwing on Saturday then McGregor and Varnell if ORU advances in the regional.

Folmar is O-fer in regionals so this is a big weekend for him......i think this is best depth ORU has had in a long time.

  1. Ausua

What are my TV/radio options for Friday night?

If we win Friday, I think a short jaunt over to Fayetteville will be on the agenda for Saturday...

I'm not sure about radio, but it will be streamed on ESPN3.

You guys probably don't want to hear our broadcast but if you don't have another option, the Arkansas Gameday app streams our radio feed for free no matter where you are. You can delete it after the game lol

ORU Baseball has announced that our allotment of tickets for Friday night's game with the Hogs have all been sold.  They also announced that a limited amount remain for Saturday's contest.  If I was in Tulsa I would be there.  Unfortunately, it is about a 1,000 mile one way trip for me so thank the Good Lord for ESPN3.  It should be a great game and I too believe that whoever wins the Arkansas/ORU game Friday night will win the Regional.  We know we can beat both Mo. State and Ok. State.  GO GOLDEN EAGLES!

Appreciated! I'm old school and love a good radio broadcast of a sporting event. Even the opposing team's feed.

Thank you!

You would probably enjoy our broadcast. One of the guys can be annoying, but our play by play guy is a former minor league play by play guy with no affiliation to the UA. I think he has something like 20 years doing this, and probably 15 of them are in professional baseball. He does his homework on each team prior to the games. He asks for correct pronunciations, etc to make sure anyone listening from the opposing team can enjoy it as well. It is nice listening to someone who doesn't think a call is bad or that we will stomp everyone all the time. He calls it like he sees it since he isn't just a former player or coach, he actually got into the profession because he loves it.

MrsEagleman also scowls when I am watching ORU games on my phone like last Saturday afternoon at my grandsons' Little League Tournament game....lol.....and I was just joking about the Hog broadcasters whining....I expect this to be a very tough competitive game....ORU won't likely kick Arkansas' A$$.....I expect both regional games tomorrow to be close and hard fought.....:geek:

It was fun listening to these Dakota guys interview Coach Folmar - they were obviously very familiar with the team and ORU's tradition, and they were incredibly respectful.  And, they knew their baseball.

It sounded like Ryan enjoyed talking to them as well, especially when he chuckled about Matt Whatley going after umpires - good stuff all the way around.

We are about 8 hours from the first pitch of ORU vs. The Hogs....any thoughts or predictions as to what happens tonight?...can we score some runs against their ace?  Will Ausua be able to shut down a tough UA line up in their home stadium?....tough tough game tonight and arguably one of the biggest ORU has played in the past 5 years or so....:eagles:

Five of the six total meetings between ORU and Arkansas in the postseason have been decided by 2 runs or less. No score prediction either way, but I expect it to be a battle.

That was a wild finish for MO State! Anything can happen in baseball--and it usually does.

2 outs, bases loaded with Cummings at the plate. Got punched out on a VERY questionable call. Playing good baseball so far. To the bottom of the third!
