    Off we go to Starkville to face Miss State with their 24-8, 3-6 record. State has been facing tough conference teams, too. They dropped 2 vs. LSU, 2 at KY and 2 at Arky. They've been away the last two weekends, so they'll be glad to be home.

    TV: None (Saturday game will be the only one televised)

    Looks like the Gators haven't officially announced Carmichael for this weekend. Crawford is pitching tonight and Young on Saturday with Sunday TBA. That's not a good sign.

    I think he'll pitch Sunday if not out of the pen earlier, Sully might be wanting to have him out of the pen if the boys get roughed up early on Fri/Sat. I think Sully is gonna pull out all stops to try and win two this weekend.

    First, all of Carmichael's Friday starts have been quality starts. Second, the team just came off a weekend series where they lost an extra inning game and followed it with two shutout victories. . .so you follow that by screwing with the pitching rotation????
    That would be beyond strange.

    I agree that doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Last weekend was probably the Gators best weekend of the year. I really don't think Sully would mess with that just for the hell of it. Hopefully it's something minor. You gotta be careful with freshmen. Carmichael has thrown a lot of pitches already this year.

    He was money out of the pen earlier this year too. Crawford is hands down the best pitcher in the rotation. He was a little shaky, but hopefully on track now. This shows a lot of confidence in him. We need Crawford to be a shut down Friday starter to make a run. It is a little strange, but i think he really has confidence in Carmichael as a starter or reliever and feels he might be better suited out of the pen in game one and or two to make sure we stay close in both games. He used to do the same thing with Panteliodis. Maybe he thinks Young pitches better as a starter, maybe he feels comfotable with the lefty matchup. I do know MSU has a dynamite offense and it could get ugly quick if our pitchers don't bring their A game. Just a thought....Go Sully, Go Gators.

    When you see stripes, think zebra.

    A freshman who has thrown a ton of innings suffering from a little bit of arm fatigue is a much more likely scenario than Sully messing with a staff that finally fell into place last weekend.

    I love what Carmichael has done this season, but to say all of his Friday starts have been quality would be a big stretch....last week was not a quality outing.
    In 4.1 innings he gave up 3 earned runs on 4 hits, 4 walks, and 2 hit batters.
    UF pitching after him threw 23 innings with 0 earned runs, 9 hits and 4 walks

    A BIG stretch??? Take a look at his numbers. He has put the team in a position to win every single time. If you can bash and criticize what Carmichael has done all I can do is laugh.
