Long Beach State Finally Shows Resemblance Of Normalcy


LONG BEACH — So bear with me for a second…  Could THIS be the Long Beach State team we’ve been waiting to see since opening weekend? Saturday’s 4-0 series-clinching win over UC Irvine could be an indication. 

I mean, c’mon. Unless you have been living underneath a freeway overpass in L.A. you know they opened the season winning two of three games in Starkville against the defending national champions. Yes, that means they beat an SEC team two straight days to start the season. In front of 11,000-plus fans who hate anything remotely to do with the state of California.
