One parents ultimate meltdown against the University of Houston baseball coach

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 19, 2009

Like most people I enjoy a complete meltdown from a parent because their kid isn’t getting enough playing time, but when the meltdown occurs in the form of a 20,000-word website dissertation that employs CAPS LOCK, then that is a completely different story. 

Jimmy Reviele was on the University of Houston baseball team for four years under the watchful eye of its coach and evil overlord Rayner Noble who is pictured at the top. Jimmy’s daddy, Vinny, is not happy about the way his son was treated while on the Cougars pitching staff. According to CAP LOCKS and rainbow colors, Jimmy was passed over for players that Noble favored, even though said player were not as good as Jimmy. Jimmy JIMMY! (employing the South Park Timmy routine there) was a bullpen pitcher and never was on the hill longer than an inning. Of course every time Jimmy JIMMY! was on the hill he either walked someone or gave up a run but that’s not the point, because other pitchers who were not as good as Jimmy JIMMY! also gave up more runs. Of course those said pitchers were starters and saw a lot more innings… 

If you read the whole thing be prepared to learn the shocking truth of Houston baseball. I managed to find some parts that appeared angrier than others for your pleasure. They were easy to identify because of the XXXL fonts and rainbow colors. 

This story is about a University of Houston baseball player whose college baseball career (2006 – 2009) was destroyed by the head baseball coach (Rayner Noble) at the University of Houston. … 

Any player or parent who reads this and even has the slightest inclination about playing baseball for Rayner Noble at University of Houston or wherever he is coaching, should really rethink their options. Please don’t make the same mistake that we did. Sadly, we were told this same thing, but we did not listen. … 

Jimmy was just simply not one of Noble’s Showcase Players or “Special Favorite Players.” PLEASE TAKE NOTE* That being one of Noble’s favorites (SFP’s) has nothing to do with a players skill level. If someone is fortunate enough to be one of Noble’s SFP’s you are all set. They will get numerous chances to fail and still feel secure because they know they will be right back in the line up and play again the very next game or right back in the pitching rotation. … 

I honestly love every pitcher on the team and no offense to any of them, but every single one of them including my son Jimmy has been shelled at one time or another this past year. Just like all pitchers, they have had times when they pitched lights out and they had times when they got shelled. All of them!! The pitchers that ended up doing better this past 2009 season were the ones that Noble pitched more. Look at the stats. Most of these guys started off awful but were continually used and naturally they got better! … 

Why is there a different set of rules for Jimmy? … 

Still to this day, I understand that Jimmy was one of the fastest players on the Cougars. I know in his freshman year at U of H, Jimmy broke a college record by 22 seconds for the mile and a half. … 

Jimmy was doomed from day one!… 

Once again they said “when Jimmy was not pitching, he will be at 1st base.” BIG LIE!! (Jimmy never even stepped on first base – let alone play it) The only time Jimmy ever stepped on first base was when they used him two times (his senior year only) to pinch run! … 

TRYING TO SET JIMMY UP FOR FAILURE 

After reviewing all of Jimmy’s appearances above, one would think that without a doubt Noble was trying to set Jimmy up for failure. It could not be a coincidence that out of 12 appearances Jimmy just happened to face the TOP or the MEAT of the order 7 times! Jimmy only pitched part of or only 1 inning at a time! It wasn’t like Jimmy was pitching numerous innings. It seems really strange that this just happened to be this way! NOBLE DID THIS ON PURPOSE SO JIMMY WOULD FAIL . . . JUST LIKE NOBLE DID TO JIMMY AT LAST YEARS FINAL GAME IN COLLEGE STATION, but Jimmy DID NOT! This year (2009) Jimmy was allowed to pitch in only 3 Conference games . . . What is the reason for this? Jimmy’s ERA in Conference is 0.00 ! WHY DIDN’T NOBLE PITCH JIMMY MORE? … 

Note* Jimmy asked Noble if he could get #8 for his Junior year and Noble told Jimmy “OK.” … Much to Jimmy’s surprise on the first day of school, Jimmy noticed that #8 had been assigned to another new player. Jimmy went to Coach Noble and asked why he wasn’t able to get #8? Noble said that Jimmy could have it but it would cost $100.00 (which Jimmy paid him in cash)! How could Noble do this to Jimmy and live with himself? 

DOES NOBLE NEED MONEY THIS BAD? – – – HE IS A SNAKE! … 

NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO PUT THEIR FUTURE IN THE HANDS OF THIS MADMAN. IF NOBLE DECIDES NOT TO PITCH OR PLAY YOU, WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT? NOTHING AND NOBLE KNOWS THIS. THE SCOUTS TOLD JIMMY THAT THEY CANNOT DRAFT SOMEONE IF THEY NEVER SEE THEM PLAY MORE THAN A FEW INNINGS ALL YEAR. 

RECRUITS: TAKE IT FROM US, YOU DO NOT WANT NOBLE CONTROLLING YOUR FUTURE. 

I am not just ranting, these are facts, records and stats. Please check them out yourself. 

Note* Remember it is not SLANDER if it’s TRUE!

NO ONE ON THIS EARTH IS GOING TO DO WHAT NOBLE DID TO MY SON AND GET AWAY WITH IT! 

Sincerely, 

Vinny Raviele 

Emphasis not added. 

Jimmy does not like dirty bases. 

DID YOU FUCKING HEAR ME? JIMMY DOES NOT LIKE DIRTY BASES DAMN IT!!!!!!!!!!!! 

No Soup for you, one year! 

Whether or not Jimmy JIMMY! was wrongfully treated I don’t know, but this was too much to read. Also, extorting money from players for jersey numbers is an awesome kind of evil. Lane Kiffin please take note.

Excuse me you just stepped on my head

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on January 26, 2009

It wasn’t that long ago when MTV was actually showing videos and the few shows it aired were for the most part worth watching. One such show was titled Daria, that show cracked me up. One of the phrases that are said during the opening music was “Excuse me you just stepped on my head.”

Let’s forward some years forward and we have Chase Budinger of the Arizona Wildcats saying something similar to Houston’s Aubrey Coleman. For the record Houston was leading in this game until this incident happened. Of course Houston wound up losing the game.

Coleman was ejected from the game and appears not to be that upset over it. Note to Aubrey Coleman: try not to indulge your inner Chris Simon too much. There’s a reason the guy’s playing in Siberia these days…

Also is it just me, or has Chase Budinger been in college for 8 years? Is he going to be a doctor or something?

College Football Week 12 is in the books & here’s what I learned

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on November 16, 2008

minnisotagirls

Let’s be honest. Yesterday offered a plethora of crappy games. On the bright side my beloved VOLS didn’t lose, of course they didn’t play but that’s not the point.

Clemson light Duke up. One more win and they’re bowl eligible.

Will Ron Zook be asked to step down after losing yet another game?

Look out Notre Dame is now bowl eligible even though Navy had a chance to win it in the end. Charles Weis really needs to look into doing some push-ups.

Georgia and the penalties they accrue almost cost them the game against Auburn.

chompFlorida hammered South Carolina which is absolutely hilarious to me. Living in Columbia you should have heard all the things the Cock fans were saying. Deuce Staley actually said on his weekly radio talk show, “Carolina’s defense can match up with anyone’s speed in the country.” Really Deuce? You couldn’t tell from their performance yesterday.

I continuously laugh when I watch TV ads for other schools. And then a Florida ad comes on. “Go Gators. Go cure cancer.” Oh, that seems pretty simple. Tebow will take care of that in between circumcisions this off-season.

Does anyone really want to win the ACC?

Miami should be thanking Maryland for beating North Carolina.

Wisconsin discovered something called a forward pass and beat Minnesota with it.

Has anyone noticed that Nebraska is bowl eligible yet?

Missouri wins the Big 12 North…yes people that still exists.

Florida State couldn’t control penalties & Boston College’s running game at the same time.

It can be said: Vandy is bowl eligible. Kentucky might have been still mourning the humiliating loss the basketball received at the hands of VMI the night before.

Washington is still winless go figure.

Houston doesn’t have a problem as they rack up 70 points against Tulsa.

LSU almost embarrassed themselves and the SEC yesterday.

Michigan endures their first 8 loss season ever. I’m sure they’re glad they hired Rich Rodriguez now.

Well this will certainly leave a mark

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 29, 2008

Did anyone watch the Houston/Marshall game last night? Actually did anyone even know it was on? In the video below you will see how not to break a leg…literally.

Freshman receiver Patrick Edwards for Houston run out of the back of the end zone while going for pass that was overthrown. For some odd reason there are metal carts placed there, which of course is rather odd.

I’m warning you this video is ugly and you’ll cringe. I truly hope Edwards recovers and is able to play again. I’ll make fun of a lot of things, but I won’t make fun of injuries.
