Having crossed paths with him in the past, I had a feeling longtime Alabama coach Jim Wells wouldn't hold back following his team's 12-8 loss to UTA today. Wells knows the game, and has always been pretty blunt. A few of his comments....
On his team's comeback in the ninth - "We have a good offense and we'd come back, but the point in this game was starting pitching. (Austin) Graham pitched well, so Graham will start and will eliminate (Jimmy) Nelson for now. The thing is the other phases of the game broke down with the six errors...So you knew we'd come back, but we just dug ourselves a big hole with poor pitching and some errors at wrong times."
On trailing 7-0 after the first inning - "You have to stop the bleeding. We don't know how to stop it. People have big innings on us. Instead of 3-5 (runs), it's 7-8."
His impressions of UTA - "Well, we're 0-2 against them so they must be real good." -Trae Thompson
