Call me Captain Obvious, but this weekend's home-stand against #1 TCU (in some polls) is HUGE. This will be a great barometer for our talent level and a chance for Coach Smith to see the true character of his players. Will they fight back if they get down? Can they hold a lead? Can they prevent or overcome mental errors? Everything will be magnified by the caliber and expectations of this opponent.

Realistically, we can't expect a sweep of TCU. I'll be happy if we win one, ecstatic if we take two, and disappointed if we get swept. But, whatever the outcome, playing high caliber opponents early in the season is fantastic for the program. I'd rather play tough teams and lose a few than play a bunch of cupcakes and rack up easy W's. These gut-check games WILL payoff in the long run.

I am excited about this Sun Devil team. I love our new Coach, and I'm enjoying the new stadium. The future of ASU Baseball looks bright. Just don't jump off the bandwagon if we get beat up a bit by TCU. Stay the course.
