    LSU's been hitting well as of late. Should make for an interesting game tomorrow.

    One game takes it all? Double elimination just to get to the title game?

    Yes one game takes it all. It was also one game elimination in the semis.

    Since when has baseball had a run rule?

    It's in place during the SEC tournament. UF got run ruled a few years back. If a team is getting destroyed, no need to use up everyone's pitching for garbage time.

    UF was single elimination against South Carolina, Mississippi State, and Kentucky. I like our chances today. LSU has been a juggernaut, but UF has been better tested.

    UF is back at #1 in the RPI. With a win, UF will likely be the #1 national seed for having won the best conference's regular season and tourney championships.

    LSU has a national seed on the line. With a win, LSU will elevate itself from regional host to national seed. I'm sure revenge is on the Tigers agenda as well after being swept in Gainesville.

    Both teams have a lot to play for. It should be a great game.

    question for those who have followed this close, who do we have left to pitch?

    It's amazing to me that after the first couple of weeks that we would even be considered for a national seed let alone a 1 seed. So I tip my hat to Sulley and the players for having an amazing year.

    Kendall Rogers of Perfect Game feels this way but I am not convinced. LSU was only 17-12-1 (I think, give or take a game) in conference play. Their Top 25 RPI record is very mediocre. I personally think the SEC might only get 1 national seed but 4 or 5 regional hosts.

    We probably locked up the #1 overall seed with yesterday's win; win or lose today I still think we'll be the #1 seed.

    Smart move. Glad he didn't let Whitson go too long and struggle.
    Very positive outing for Whitson.

    LSU put up 25 runs in the first 7 innings of their first 3 SECT games. Today they've put up 0 runs. Fantastic start by Karsten.

    Even LOFC prolly like
    Karsten went 6
    never saw coming
