    Does Sully take the early or late game? I know he's taken the early game if there is a greater than normal chance of rain.

    So who do you throw in game 1? I would throw Jac.....if you can't beat FAMU with him and your midweek guys then you aren't going anyhere regardless. Save Sproat and Waldrep and you should be golden

    No. I think he changed the rotation so Sproat can go round 2. If we make it to Omaha, he may change back to give Sproat a better chance of pitching two.

    That is logical, but has Sully ever thrown our #3 in game 1?

    Stay on schedule with Waldrep and take the late game so you will have a better turnout. Taking the early game means 3-3.5k in stands vs 6k+. If our bats come alive this could be a blowout so might be able to save the Pen.

    Kowar was a #1/2 pitching third because we were loaded. Cag is not that consistent yet.

    Cags sure didn't get overextended Saturday. But that would be a good strategy, IMO. The scary thing about a team like FAMU is that pitchers throw a ton of junk that can get our hitters' timing off. We did run-rule them 17-7 a couple of months ago and Tejada pitched pretty well. Jameson & Purnell not so much. FAMU does have a pretty good hitting team - .296 BA , 69 HR and 3 guys with 10+. Still, it's a game we SHOULD easily win.

    Kowar was pretty inconsistent at that juncture as well...in fact IMO him and Jac are an interesting comparison
    I wouldn't be surprised if he goes with Waldrep, but I would save Sproat at a minimum

    You typically would throw the number 3 pitcher in a game like this so I don’t disagree you should throw jac out there on Friday. The question becomes who do throw game 2 in winner’s bracket game. I would do Sproat.

    Cags will be on 6 days rest-
    Sproat will be on 7 days rest-
    Waldrep will be on 8 days rest-
    They all will be good to go, it just depends on who got put on what throwing schedule this week gearing for each start.

    Sully I’m sure has his plan.

    Tough Regional. We are Florida, and we are up to the task of coming out of this Regional.

    Go Gators!
