    Gators up5-0, top 3. Need a sweep and a Tennessee loss this weekend at Mizzou to win the SEC title. Or a sweep and Tennessee to not even play, which could happen. Bad weather in Mizzou has already postponed the game tonight.

    Watching game on my laptop via the SC web site. If interested, go to UF web site, Gatorzone.com, and click on tv camera at softball game. Although the SC announcer continues to bitch about the size of the strike zone afforded Hannah Rodgers, he isn't bad and a welcome change from Adam Schick and Megan Bush.

    Top of the 4th. Still 5-0.

    Weather in midwest has been strange this week. 70's early week and snow and ice yesterday. Some places had almost a foot of the stuff.

    Top of the 6th. Still 5-0. Stephanie Toft has been, in the words of the SC announcer, a "vacuum cleaner. She came close to turning a double play but cut down the lead runner after a previous single. Then she sucked up a hard grounder off the bat of the next batter and did turn the double play to close out the inning.

    Top of the 7th. Still 5-0. Toft now has 9 assists, I think. The last one was a ball hammered into the ground, resulting in a very high bounce. Toft waited for it and then lasered the ball to first to nip the batter.

    Yeah, Tofft has made several great plays at 3b. Really been a nice addition to the team. And this announcer is very good for USC.

    Game over, 5-0. Hannah got a 2 hitter, striking out 4. Gators scored all their runs in the 3rd inning and seemed to relax a bit. They left 8 runners on base, and Coach Walton got a bit cute a couple of times, resulting in the Gators running themselves out of a couple of innings. His last ploy was the old "get the runner hung up between 1st and second while the runner on third comes home" trick. However, there were two outs, and the runner who was supposed to come home inexplicably ran back to third instead of charging home and was put out to end the inning.

    One down, two to go. All the Gators can do is win the remaining two games and await the vagaries of the softball gods. No matter what happens, this team has played beyond all expectations. Great job ladies!

    10 assists ties the school record in a game set by Jenn Mossadeghi in 2001.

    Didn't the Gators lose the SEC regular season championship last year or the year before because they had a couple of games cancelled and not made up because of weather? As I recall, the Gators had a better winning percentage in the SEC than the team (Bama?) which won, but the winning team had one or two more wins than the Gators.

    I believe you're thinking of 2011 and have it backwards. It was actually 'Bama that had a series with Kentucky cancelled. They finished the season 19-6 and UF was 21-7. 'Bama won the 2011 SECC .760 to .750.

    I'm not going to be happy if this happens to us again. We need to sweep SC and UT has to lose a game to Mizz.

    We can sweep SC but if UT is only able to play one game of their series and wins then we are out of luck. UT needs to lose at least one game or play none. UT is currently 15-4 (.789) and UF is 17-5 (.773).

    The schedule has changed and UF and SC will play a DH sat due to forecast of rain on sun. First game is at 2PM.

    Hope we sweep and UT and Mizz play and Mizz wins at least one. Chance of rain at both sites.

    Haeger just hasn't had any consistency on the mound this year. She can give up 2 in the first and shut them out the rest of the way, or she may not make it out of the third...no telling

    You can watch the game via the video link on Gatorzone. Then mute the SC commentary, and open a new tab and go back to gatorzone and click on the Gator audio link to listen to Schick and Megan Bush.
