Thomas "Nut" Favors & Owens "Q" Walker
Webmaster: Whatís up fellas?
Owens: Not a lot at the moment, just chilling.
Nut: NOTHINí MUCH
Webmaster: You have to be very pleased with the way things are going for you guys, from your winning ways to landing a major, high profile sponsor?
Nut: YES, YOU ARE RIGHT. THE SPONSORSHIP HAS BEEN A LONG TIME COMING.
WEBMASTER: WITH 2 DIFFERENT COACHES, HOW DO YOU KEEP FROM CLASHING?
BOTH: WITH THE SAME GOAL IN MIND ITS EASY. AND SOMETIMES YOU NEED THAT BALANCE. ITS SORT OF LIKE A MARRIAGE. We do have a third coach on board this year, his name is Ray Faigan. Ray has been a great asset to our team. Ray has many years of experience playing and coaching the game. After years of trying to get Ray to come on board he finally decided to and it has been great for all of us. I just want to say HATS off to Ray Faigan the other coach behind the So So Def Recording Softball Team.
Webmaster: There is a lot of talk about you guys being a Competitive team, what is youR response to that?
Nut: ACCORDING TO THE BYLAWS OF B.A.S.A WE ARE SUPER REC, REGARDLESS OF HOW SUCCESSFUL WE ARE. WHEN WE EXCEED WHAT B.A.S.A DEEMS A SUPER REC TEAM, THEN WE SHOULDNíT BE PENALIZE FOR BEING SUCCESSFUL.
Webmaster: From both a numbers and a talent level standpoint, does it not make more sense to combine the Super Rec and Competitive divisions, rather than the Super Rec and Rec divisions.
Nut: SORT OF. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH REC. THEY HAVE THE NUMBERS TO SUSTAIN THEIR DIVISION. COMPETITIVE IS A SINKING SHIP AND I DONíT WANT TO BE ON THAT BOAT.
Webmaster: In either case, do you think the lower classified team should be awarded runs prior to the start of a game.
Webmaster: The Rec teams make up the majority of entries every week, if the divisions were permanently separated, how many entries in the Super Rec division would it take to make it worth attending?
Nut:10 TEAMS LOCALLY,12 TO 16 TEAMS TO TRAVEL.
Webmaster: You have been bumped up to competitive before and did not fair very well, how big of a leap is IT to the competitive division?
Webmaster: I stand corrected.
Webmaster: As you know Graystone and BBQ were moved up and now are hardly seen on the circuit, what can be done to save the competitive division, and yet keep the lower divisions competitive from a talent standpoint.
Nut: IF SAVING IT, IS AN OPTION. MAKE THEM PLAY EQUALIZERS. SPOT SUPER REC 6 RUNS AND PLAY. OR ABOLISH COMPETITIVE. ITS NOT A MONEY MAKER, MOST BUSINESS CUT THEIR LOSES. LET NO MORE THAN 2 PLAYERS PLAY ON A SUPER REC TEAM AND WATCH FOR BALANCE IN THAT DIVISION.
Webmaster: If SO SO DEF gets moved up for next year, how does this change the teamís outlook.
Webmaster: The only two teams that have even won a game against you this year, have combined, could this be a combination that derails the road to the championship.
Nut: WE DONíT PUT THAT MUCH EMPHASIS ON ONE TEAM. A WIN IS A WIN, REGARDLESS IF ITS CLASS-ACT/CRUNCHBERRIES,AIR-MAC,HARDKNOCKS ETC.
Webmaster: The talent on SO SO DEF is very deep, it has even been suggested you could make two teams out of your roster and both finish in the top 10 at worlds, how do you keep everyone happy.
Nut: GIVE THE CREDIT TO THE PLAYERS. YOU CANT MAKE EVERYBODY HAPPY. BUT AS A COACH ITíS A GREAT PROBLEM TO HAVE.
Webmaster: The stormettes, what are they called now and what does their support mean to the team?
Nut: SUPPORT IS ALWAYS A PLUS.
Webmaster: Jermain Dupri watched from the dugout as you captured yet another tournament title, what were his thoughts on everything?
Webmaster: Give us your thoughts on BASA and itís present state.
Webmaster: That is about it, time for your shout outs.
Nut: SO SO DEF FAMILY, MY WIFE AND 4 KIDS, STORMETTES, SUPERSONICS, ENOUGH SAID, JUST US. ALL GA MEN'S TEAMS INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO(AIR-MAC, HARDKNOCKS, PRIMETIME, SOUTH GA MAGIC, ETC)THE B.A.S.A FAMILYÖ
