Domineering coach -- seven straight wins after that four game losing streak in. Two back to back wins over a key teams in the SEC west Mississippi -- to sweep. And 20. Two to one against Arkansas but talk about the clubs Blake coach and I was listed to you at the Saturday night's game. Are impressive to get the walk off -- -- got a big home run early. But you you are not pleased with the defense of effort on Saturdays game. Well you know if we can precursor to a girl crisply played. Sat that game probably you know a lot and they've yet in my court because I've been all that much energy mark and quite bring it. We you know we did what we do it went on Saturday. We that they occur early -- -- -- year. Of that and it was great but. At the end there. We did it took to it and that was exciting yet yet. Walk Auckland which was an -- that routine it's good critique anarchy and it yet clinched. So proud of that but. You know territory this year you have to have -- the sport should actually -- it was and a good game and insinuation. Or. You know. Channel you know. You know we were able to read it straight game and you know five -- six -- can't stand to look at that move forward. Coach -- How do you talk to get a team our players. I guess you'd never overconfident. But let's say you've already won the series in. And a very pivotal series play in August are Razorbacks and the challenges that they come about whenever you play them. And let's say you one general how hard is -- oh on that Sunday you know ultimately yes -- great. But really the goal because the competition is is is to win. Two out of three so how do you approach to team -- was psychological standpoint. When you already won two games going to and it's and the team. Well I've done it the -- where my whole career. Just one game at a time our first -- it can't -- Being -- that we can cheer if you want or being there early slips that goal -- Which went one inning and nickel corner when it here and that it wore on -- -- it. Or are they are fortunate to get a the first you to talk about -- you know -- -- and our players are sort -- understand art that weren't being in the SEC in your pitching at the sweet opponent. It. Image and that. And that situation problem with Russia is that they're for starting pitching performance. Got off to a bad start. In. You were better so that they call right at eight. And then return chip away at that fortitude and fortunately it turned a double play ball. They extended their lead to five Q are all -- Alter much or -- became you know a big deficit so much. It didn't matter age or better I mean. Inspired I think get -- -- for that and it just it worked out for it is up to that start. Now -- very this a little bit not all such treatment pertaining to college athletics and and you know it's been in use in it is coming to the forefront. And I think -- be talking about the five biggest college conferences -- NCAA in. An -- unions ever gonna come about on the you have commented I think about a month ago that a union would be a bad idea habit. Now you have. The five biggest college conferences that. You know most of the point now where they wanna be proactive and then O'Bannon suit that's gonna come above anti trust suit in June. That is so -- And now with the biggest college commerce and ultimately waived and it's -- but to offer improved benefits on their home. That could include guaranteed four year scholarships medical care. And sometime K taxes I've been. But the players what does it take on matters that out now. Compensation bridges just making it better from the college athlete would not having union what does it take -- Well I really don't have a take on it right now you know I have. That's followed the news on that subject as close is probably shoot a artsy and it. But focus just subtract or so options in or out you know it is a lot of talk about it both directions and you know we don't know what the court you can say we don't know it. What in our conference is good chances going to be on net so I sent to keep our opinions to myself -- -- that topic but you know I know it's hot topic -- -- -- but it but at this point it really prefer not to talk about it. LSU coach pulmonary isn't whether it's the Tigers would fall more big game this week earlier schedule this week due to the holiday they'll play Thursday Friday Saturday. A key series up and Oxford against the Ole miss rebels level one game lead over the LSU. And the SEC west division coach tomorrow night a very special albeit. That you have seen it grown in blossom into something that is a big -- each and every year and rightfully so the -- upon junior classic against the southern miss. Golden Eagles at zephyr field in this is something that. Every year of people reflect back on Wally what he did for the program and what has continued on each and every year with his great classic. But you're -- regret about that well -- -- junior was announced inning and I don't mean in the plated LSU. 20020012002. Following his junior year which was determined this year. I stressed it -- you know I had an opportunity go to professional baseball you want it to. It decided to return to LSU her senior year and fortunately. He tragically passed away in his sleep that. You know it's I can't imagine. How painful that must have been -- stadium workers for our university and -- community you know to. Except where you actually like Wally -- tried to know him well -- only met one time when I was coach -- Notre -- but certainly great impression on me as well so. This is kind of our waited just to keep all the name. Out there in. Instructor but he curious electorate member in order Wednesday. -- or persons post people like epitomized mr.
