Bibee seeks a role with UT; Cobb recovering after FSU struggle with three victories

With a year of soaking in college baseball despite no playing time, Brian Bibee is simply looking to contribute as a Tennessee baseball player in 2007.

The former All-state outfielder at Webb School and Vol red-shirt freshman is looking for reserve outfield duty.

Alongside his UT teammates as a true freshman last season “was a great learning experience, I got to travel on the road,” he said, “and understand where I need to be physically and mentally. I really needed it, I thought it was a good thing for me. I’m stronger, faster, more aware of situations.”

Bibee has appeared in one UT game without a plate appearance.

Meanwhile, former Farragut High School All-state pitcher and Vol second-team All-SEC hurler Craig Cobb has shaken off a rough season-opening start against Florida State with three wins.

Cobb, the “Friday” starter, is coming off consecutive complete game efforts, allowing just one earned run with nine strikeouts and one walk in a 6-1 win against IPFW Feb. 23 at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.

One week before, Cobb went the distance to beat Bethune-Cookman, allowing two earned runs, eight hits and no walks while striking out six in a 4-3 win Feb. 16 at UT.

The Vol senior, currently sporting a 3.58 earned run average, went eight innings against Eastern Michigan Feb. 9 at UT, allowing eight hits but only one earned run, nine strikeouts and no walks in a 7-4 Tennessee win.

Offensively, former Admiral standout and Vol starting shortstop Tony Delmonico (.286/one home run/ five RBIs) and ex-FHS star and UT third baseman Cody Brown (.244/one home run/six RBIs) have started all 11 games for the 6-5 Big Orange.
