    11 in a row over SWAC
    11 consecutive seasons of making the NCAA Tournament
    11 trips to Omaha before we won our first national championship
    And a winning record over #11 to send him off to retirement

    Hooray for the number 11!

    Did they have to sew 2 jerseys together to get that name on the back?

    wing—

    They haven’t covered that with their players yet—“11” is still working on “listen to me”—because all the TV guys want to talk about is him having a teaching moment—

    This is almost too good to be true—

    Trust me, I know the ins and outs of college baseball. But this isn't about trusting Sully, cause I have as much faith in him as any coach out there. It's about some kids needing to grow up a little faster, some vets having better focus and performing the little things on a much more consistent basis.
    Again, IMO this isn't a talent issue that has plagued this team. There are a LOT of guys on this roster than are going to be drafted. It's a catcher that doesn't block up balls with his body and save bases, its a ss that doesn't always stick with the fundamentals in the field, it's guys getting picked off bases, it's hitters far too often not advancing runners and having productive at bats. And first and foremost, it's pitchers throwing 2 strike meatballs, wild pitches with runners on, walking leadoff guys, etc etc. Yes, youth is a partial culprit. But it's time to step up for some of these guys.

    Really don't mean to distract from a big and important win, which is the real story of the night. But can't help but worry there is a little fool's gold in beating FSU right now.

    You need to save this one and post it again every 4 weeks or so as a reminder to us all. Thanks APK for putting it out here so eloquently.

    Hopefully, each outing, the players are learning. I think the coaches won’t let them forget the big and little misplays and mistakes...that FSU May or May not have taken advantage of.
    Gotta continually improve...to get to where we want to be, on the mound, in the field, at the plate. Still need dramatic improvement all the way around.

    Pin this thread back at the top please. This is the game where the Gators gave the Lord of NO Rings a losing record against us in baseball.

    Or send it to the Hall of Fame.

    This is Gator history

    As much as I generally don’t value this series (because of its midweek status), last night was particularly fun and meaningful.

    Seems like it will be tied in 2 years. Maybe less if we get them post season.

    We can wait. I’d rather not leave anything to chance and not face FSU again this season.

    I wanted to see them in the tourney, but sending 11 out with exactly 11 consecutive losses would be pretty sweet.

    The NCAA will do everything they can to give 11 an easy path in the post season. I’ll be shocked if we’re in the same regional.
