Weekend wrap

The second week of college baseball is behind us; what did we learn.

* We learned LSU is capable of beating up on weak northern schools' pitching. The Tigers hearkened back to the "Gorilla Ball" days this weekend in a three-game demolition of Duquesne. LSU ripped 13 home runs in the three-game sweep.

* We learned Tech is almost there -- but not quite. Faced with its toughest competition of the young season, the Bulldogs dropped all three games at the Texas A&M tournament. Not the best of signs for Wade Simoneaux's squad, but it remained competitive in all three losses to BCS conference teams.

* NSU followed the LSU pattern -- beat up a northern school in three games. NSU's pitching is a work in progress, but right now the offense is making up for the staff's shortcomings.

* Grambling opened SWAC play with a doubleheader sweep of Texas Southern on Saturday. That's good news for Barret Rey's team, which hopes to once again make noise in the SWAC like they did in the late 1980s and early 1990s under coach Wilbert Ellis.
