Does Walton prefer to have a smaller squad than everyone else in the WCWS? Wash,OU, and Mich have 21 players. UT has 19. ASU has 26!!! Only Neb and Tex have 16, the same as UF. He had mentioned lack of depth compared to other teams. But I cant remember if he's carried more than 18 players. He will lose only 2 seniors this year but with only 3 recruits coming in that leaves him with 17 for next year. Its only logical that UF will finally overcome that years best team with better depth. I read somewhere that teams can carry up to 21 players so why not max out?
