I don't see it on YouTube. It was hilarious they were showing intricate details of the spin move like look at him bend at the knees and use his offhand to leverage the umpire haha

LOL at Wilbon and Kornheiser seriously discussing that Avent should be fired/suspended by the school for getting ejected.

I was (mostly) a fan of Bobby Cox doing this with the Braves, so I dont totally disagree with his getting ejected to fire up his team, but do we really think that's what it is? I saw his note, and I think you can explain it that way, but Im not sure that that isnt just an excuse with him. That's a big game to get ejected in, especially after we had just beat the tar out of Navy and should have been feeling good and wouldnt have needed the motivation.

in baseball, like any sport, i think there are good managers and bad managers...duh. but i also think baseball might be the sport where you can most afford to have the coach ejected or suspended. it tends to be a more hands-off game and i don't really have any issue with avent doing what he did. i do think the 2 game suspension is pretty harsh though

i'm not really sure what Avent would have done differently if he were on the bench. Foxhall makes the pitching decisions and, for the most part, had made all of the right decisions.

Srs question... Is blowing leads in clutch games a frequent occurrence in college baseball, or is it just an NC State thing.

To be fair we blew the lead in the seventh. The ninth just put the game away

yeah i mean i know it's a joke and everything, but this hardly registers on the "nc state shit" meter.

The argument for NC State shit isn't due to blowing the lead, but how they blew it. In both the 7th and 9th, Kentucky scored 3 runs while only recording 1 hit in each inning. In the 9th, that hit was a bunt. It may not register as NC State shit but it was very self-inflicted and disappointing.

^they mentioned weve been in the ACC title game 5 times since 2000 and are 0-5 in those games. Combine that with ACC title games weve been in basketball and we are like 0-8 or something since 2000 in ACC championship games. Fuckin pitiful

Extension in 18 was for 2 years. Let '20 be his farewell tour and be finding his replacement.

0 ACC titles
0 Atlantic Division titles
1 CWS appearance with the school's two best players ever
3 Super Regional Appearances

Also it is pretty easy to make the NCAA tournament in baseball from one of the 2 best leagues. We haven't made it past the Regional round since 2013 with Trea and Rodon.

It is beyond time.

Getting shut out by a pitcher with a 6.00 ERA when you have the best lineup in the ACC is peak Avent.

25 years and 0 conference titles. This wouldn't fly at any school in the nation. Tell me I'm wrong.

He couldn't even do it today with the more talented team.

He’s a better version of Sendek.

State athletics is the best evidence I know of that curses exist.

Calling him a better version of Sendek is probably fair. And not even really an insult.

NC State baseball is the most consistent and best of any of the “main” sports in my lifetime (CFB, MBB, WBB, Baseball). Thats a pretty low bar but it feels like Avent catches a lot of shit and it’s not all justified. Criticism and frustration can be totally warranted. But it feels like some of it is just spilled over frustration from lack of success in other sports. I might be misreading some of it. But I can’t imagine all the people calling for him to be fired and bitching about lack of titles actually care *that* much about college baseball.
