    HUGE series for the Gators. Going to be hard to keep Mississippi State from taking the #4 slot in the SEC tournament.

    And a good showing might mean a top eight seed.

    Lots to play for.

    As it works out our last series of the regular season is our biggest series of our season.

    It will play out at one of college baseball’s great venues before as packed a house as we’ve seen in two seasons.

    I, like all of us, look forward to seeing our Gators take the field with a clear purpose of playing our best ball of the year to this point. Take on all challenges like you knew they were coming.

    Give it your best—play the game like you love it!

    Have fun! This is going to be a special environment. Arkansas is hoping to claim the SEC title this weekend. Their players will be excited. UF can possibly claim it with a sweep. All to play for. Enjoy the unique environment. It doesn’t come around all that often.

    We are playing good ball right now. Two of three is not out of the question, but will that be enough to accomplish what we want?

    Arkansas has 8 conference losses, Tennessee & Vanderbilt have 9, Florida & Miss. State have 10, Ole Miss has 11, South Carolina has 12. Vandy closes out hosting Kentucky, Miss. State is at Alabama, Tennessee is at South Carolina and Ole Miss is at Georgia. We need to win 2 out of 3 to have any hope of a Top 4 finish, but lots of things could happen to affect the final standings and seedings both at the SEC tournament and for NCAA Regionals. That makes Thursday's game immensely important.

    Not sure where that would put them but I think 2 of 3 would be a great weekend on the road against Arkansas.

    A top 8 national seed is what we are shooting for. Unless we lose our last 4 games badly, we should be guaranteed a 9-16 seed.

    Just over 24 hours until the start of the last regular season weekend. Crazy. It has been a long season and yet very short. The Gators could have as few as 6 more games. Getting pretty excited to see if it all comes together at the end here!!

    Arkansas is opening up stadium to full capacity-- 11,000+ -- a formidable challenge for the Gators who have not played in such a wild atmosphere. Win 2 of 3 and national seed is all but assured. Win 1 of 3 and 10-12 seed likely. Of course there is still the SEC tourney to make some noise.

    In baseball big crowds are a bit overrated
