    We did.

    Asked and answered. Hot they were.

    What fun listening to those Nole fans shut up.

    You know I never really heard 11 talk much until last night during the game. He has to be the worst dinner guest. Maybe it's me being a northerner, but he talks so damn slow that he'd suck all the air out of the room telling one story. I'd be like, when is this damn thing going to end? And I thought his leisurely stroll out to the mound was slow.

    It seems to my rather uneducated eye that the SWAC team seems to fall apart quite a bit when playing the Gators in the past several years. Last night's game was possibly the most clear example of them playing very poorly in the field. There seemed to be far more actual errors and poor decisions on their fielding than were given by the scorer.

    It has been a delight watching the Gators dominate the SWAC the past few years. They are still a good baseball team but rarely seem to look like it against the Gators.

    Do they get too tight when they are playing the Gators or is there some other factor that makes them play so poorly against the Gators? Are the Gators able to put pressure on them to cause this?

    LG—

    It’s hard to play the game well with both hands around your throat—;)

    At this point, I think we are living rent free in their heads.

    Martin’s persona and demeanor, to me, would suggest he doesn’t overly stress-out his players, but....? Behind the scenes, is he a different person? You’ve said he tends to micro manage...and we’ve seen what he’s done with pitchers. Is he Jekyll/Hyde?

    Once we scored 5 and made it a game again, we were back in their heads. Then the wheels came off. I would have been ok with "11" losing by 11. But Reese tagged that ball and I'm glad he is getting to contribute!! Go Gators!!!

    bogey—

    Your own words “we’ve seen what he’s done with pitchers”—

    Just watch him in his dugout when his team is at bat—his hitters turn and look at him pitch by pitch to get instructions on how and what to do—

    He’s got to be in complete control—if that’s not micro-managing then I guess I’ve never seen it—

    I must tell you in all honesty that I've wished Sully would do this with some of our all too clueless batters in the past.

    He is the college version of Gene Mauch. Gene was the winningest manager to have never won a pennant.

    I think the idea is to linger on this one....20 runs: a lot to savor!

    Co-worker - fellow alum - stopped me in the halls to say “ did you see what the gators did last night?!” We talked gator baseball. The sport is growing. Fanbase growing.

    This never happened before: a gator co-worker talking gator baseball. Used to come up from cane fans who were co-workers - back when they would beat us regularly. ....They’ve been silent this last, near, decade: HA!....what joy!!)

    No, Martin is genuinely a really nice guy on and off the field. Ive met him in a couple of casual situations over the years and hes always every pleasant ans friendly.

    I remember when his son Mike Jr. and Jeremy Morris from Mt. Pleasant (practically Quincy), got caught vandalizing mailboxes in a Quincy neighborhood one night, and Coach Martin made them go through that same neighborgood and personally apologize to all of the residents and make them pay to repair their mail boxes, including my late sister's and her boyfriend's.

    And remember too, fsu made him put the rapist Winston on his roster th at one season, and Martin was none too happy about that.
