TEMPE, Ariz. -- Tracy Smith is out after seven seasons as Arizona State's baseball coach.

Athletic director Ray Anderson announced Monday that Smith was out a day after the Sun Devils were bounced from the NCAA's Austin Regional.

Gonna be interesting with the following all looking for coaches this offseason:

ASU
LSU
Rice
Fullerton

All are top tier jobs at schools that have won baseball championships.

Oh, and the ags are looking, too.

Texas gets the USF Bulls in the Super Regional. The Bulls were seeded #4 in Gainesville.

With a record barely above the water line, they won their tournament, then won the regional by beating the Gators (everybody did), and hanging on to beat South Alabama.

They're getting hot at the right time, but it seems to be a case of their pitching doing just good enough. You don't make it to a Super Regional by being a joker, but I wonder how long the magic will last for them?

Texas is playing some pretty gritty, focused baseball right now (baserunning errors aside).  We have the kind of team that keeps pressure on you at all times, forces you to make mistakes, and then capitalizes.   Nobody in Gainesville really put that kind of pressure on USF so it'll definitely be interesting to see how they handle it in Austin.

The Disch is going to be absolutely rocking, that's for sure.

Apparently they just took TCU's coach Schlossnagle.

Rob Childress can hang around with Will Bolt in Lincoln.  Would be a fine assistant

Yup, I think that'll be a good hire for them.

UT vs. UT in today's elimination game.  Earlier this season I said I didn't think we had a legitimate CWS team-- I hope they prove me wrong today...

That was a tough loss. Texas's batters did themselves no favors, but a lot like WVU, MSU has the one fantastic strikeout pitcher. The home plate umpire fell in love with called strike threes, and expanded the strike zone (for reasonably both teams) to a ridiculous chin level three foot wide area. It was the worst of all worlds, and I'm sorry we wasted Ty Madden's skillful outing losing 2-1 on two magical seeing-eye hits.

Now we move into the "non-ace" world. Texas has to hit the ball to win. They don't have to put up 10, but they're going to have to make contact.
