    Series Notes (pdf)

    TV: CST (259 in GAINESVILLE)

    Steve Russell commented that Logan Shore is officially being held back to Saturday for an extra day's rest (freshman threw 102 last Friday), but he opined that he may be held back to give the GATORS a better chance to win the series (not "wasting" him in a game against Nola). I find that hard to believe, but we may find out depending on whether or not we can get the game in tonight.

    Go GATORS!

    There would be a possibility of that line of thinking. Nobody will beat Nola this year. We are probably down 0-1 going in to Sat. So will everyone else this year. Let's get to reality , he is the best in the SEC.

    It would be nice to have a regular radio announcer rather than divvying out with different guys. wish Jeff was our regular guy and just go with him. Does anybody know why they set it up the way they do? Really sucks . Russell is horrible. I think vatell knows more baseball and Mick is... well Mick.

    Jeff is the way to go. I'm sure they will not ask me for my opinions however.

    Nola has been in college way too long. He needs to graduate already.:D I think it entirely possible that Sully is holding Shore back a game rather than matching him up against Nola - or at least it was a big part of the decision along with the 102 pitches in Shore's last outing.

    Russell sucks in general but I can listen to him doing the baseball games. Larry by far is the best.

    Impressive performance from Eric Hanhold today. He matched Nola pitch for pitch and gave his hitters a chance to win the game. Gotta go win this series now.

    All runs were by home runs. We had 2 (Turgeon, Shafer walk off), they had 1. We win 2-1. Nola threw 115 pitches - 1 more than he should have.

    Gushue with a 3 run bomb in the 6th inning of Game 2. Gators lead 6-0. I think this team may have officially arrived, ladies and gentlemen.

    Would be a serious resume builder if we could win and dare I say sweep the #3 tigers.
