    There's no reason the Gators can't add a couple of make-up games to replace the rainouts against StJohns. Obviously, it's a nole sort of thing to do, but I'm sure there are teams within a short bus ride that would trade paydays for beatings.

    I recently wrote a post that touched on midweek losses and realized half of the losses were against the above mentioned noles, whom Gators have been pounding for years- whether they were good, bad or indifferent. It's the UCF, JU and Stetson losses that deserve much more criticism and they certainly have received it on this board.

    I'm available to attend any games they add and there's room on the sched to slip in a couple. Certainly, adding games and losing one or both would call for derision from all sources, but Gator fans will gripe louder than anyone else, even if we win, so it's an opportunity that I'd like to see them take.

    The powederpuffs have mostly had their way with us this year. This team can lose to anybody. They can hang with anyone too, when things are clicking, but I wouldn’t count any games as auto wins.

    If teams can cancel this time of year to protect rpi, surely you can add to pad record. Just dont lose them..;) A loss lastnight would of knocked them to 30 rpi.. Not that i think rpi will matter for uf.

    AU softball had 7 or 8 rainouts, but choose not to replace late b/c would all be rpi killers, even w/ wins.

    I like the idea of adding games. Why not?

    We need to add 2 games with teams we can beat or we aren't going to the NCAA's.

    I thought we just needed a winning record?
