    Definitely SWAC tonight, if Georgia wins, there will be 3 wins that are enjoyed between the two schools. With SWAC winning, only two wins to be enjoyed. :)

    Go GATORS!

    Georgia’s hitting has been exposed as I expected. Just didn’t expect vs SWAC.

    The Athens Regional highlights the randomness of baseball. That SWAC lineup isn’t good. They are very mediocre. Van Eck is a good starter. Parrish is all over the map. Same for Grady.

    UGA has legit arms. Hancock led the country in WHIP. That isn’t a fluke. They have 2-3 other legit arms which will be high draft picks. But literally everything has been smashed by the SWAC. Bizarre. I would guess they really don’t want to wait until Friday to play. They are seeing grapefruits this weekend.

    I see your point. That would be the least good outcome.

    Yup. Lost to DBU 2x. Scored 16 runs in both games. Means we have no pitching, and no pitching depth. Sort of what we did most of the year. Lucky to be in the tourney. Suspect coaching will have answers and solutions for next year.

    Really was inconsistent. Or, actually, might have been a consistent pattern: alternate great/stellar with horrendous.

    Gator pitchers really reminded me of my golf game: on, in a zone one day; totally clueless the very next day....

    The one silver lining to this is that now there is no chance whatsoever that we will meet and play F$U in Omaha - ol' #11's losing streak to UF is now forever intact.

    I didn't know what you meant until I watched both the UCLA and Bama games yesterday. The ladies definitely know how to entertain. The guys look like they stormed Normandy.

    For a weird feeling FSU is going to Omaha and do some damage.

    How did the UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA get in this position with their pitching? So many straight, mid-80s fastballs with little else on this staff. That’s what you see in Bethune-cookman or UCF teams, not UF. And it’s pretty much the entire staff.

    ???

    UF has about 10 guys that sit 90-92. Almost no one throws mid to upper 80s.

    They lose the super in my opinion, but my opinion also saw them getting smoked by GA, so who knows with this crazy game.

    Dallas Baptist has been to 6 straight tournaments and has won a whole bunch of games. Jokes about their program are coming from a place of ignorance. It's not a good look for us.

    None of the "baseball people" on here were joking about their program. Everyone who follows college baseball knows DBU is a top program who can hang with anyone. They played Texas Tech tough both games.

    Either the radar guns of games I went to this season were faulty or I just went to and watched the wrong games, I guess.

    Radar guns: I have seen a wide variety on them. Some seem to make sense and others don’t. Not sure what to say on that.

    UF has decent to good power arms but UF does lack a mid to high 90s guy. UF also lacks real swing and miss stuff.

    The talent isn’t bad but it seems incomplete. Most of us assume it is at least partially mental but who really knows but the coaches and players.

    Your general point about UF falling off is valid but the talent level easily exceeds the school’s referenced (though the results don’t...).
