I'm not diminishing anything. UF has done nothing but win games and is deserving of any ranking, position, etc. that they get or have already gotten.

Believe me, I'm as surprised as anybody; you can go back to my first posts and impressions about our team at the beginning of the season, and see I was pretty pessimistic and hard on us.

But they've come on strong. It's kind of like what UK did in basketball, with all the freshmen, but the UF players just didn't wait until the tourney to start playing big-boy ball.

As for Sully, I've always been a little critical of his micro-managing games; and sometimes think he outsmarts himself.

At the same time, I have literally seen him win some 1-run games this year with some brilliant strategies and that same micro-managing... so it's hard to be too critical. I personally think we're 14-6 in 1-run games largely because of his decisions in tight games.

He'll have our fans scratching their heads sometimes, asking, "WTF is he doing?"; only to eventually see what he was doing all along later in the inning or later innings... like chess, he thinks several moves ahead.

Teams built for deep postseason runs don't have TBA and TBA in their weekend rotation is what I think he means.
It doesn't make much sense.
If we were to lose a game in a regional, I would be very nervous trying to make it out.

Msu did last year. It's all about who has the most quality arms and y'all have quite a few. Mix and match it anyway you can to use it to your advantage. Sometimes it works to your advantage instead of having a structured setup where guy B pitches game 2 each weekend. What if guy B is a fly ball pitcher facing Kentucky in the regional?  No Posted Image that. Throw him a different game. Play matchups. This is something bianco NEVER does and it always costs him in the postseason

When you've got as many freshman as we do, the starting job interviews and assessments are going to be going on right up to tourney time.

We also have a lot of talent on the mound; 5 guys have an ERA of 3 or less... 4 of those 5 are below 2.5.

It's a good problem to have; but it's still a problem from a competition standpoint, to nail down starters.

Official: Baxendale out with hamstring injury and Jake wise out with concussion like symptoms because of a moron at Ole Miss.


We are burning a redshirt this late in the season for a catcher, Alex Gosser.

Someone was rounding third to go home on a single, Arkansas catcher dived to tag him out, runners foot hit his head on a pretty wild slide.
I don't remember well, jacobp might know it better.

Godwin has done an amazing job this year IMO, being aggressive has helped a lot.
Lots of rumors about him leaving for a head coach job in the offseason, although.

Just a bad, ill advised slide. No dirty at all, but caught Wise in the head twice, and now he's out for the weekend. Other catcher is hurt too, so we are burning a redshirt this weekend

Bax hurt that hammy bad. He could barely walk. Lot of respect for him finishing that game out

He's the top ranked hitting coach in the nation according to perfect game

I think Godwin is a guy we expressed interest in in the off season. Very good coach.

Hogs up 2-0 bottom 7th. Killian is throwing a gem. Had a nono going until the 7th
