I know that this post had to be hard work for you—
All those stats and NO TRIPLES........
What do you mean? I did include triple data! Martin didn't give up a triple all season, and Rodriguez was 5th in the country with 8!
2020 roster is up!
Who got cut from the 37 to 35??
Hunter McMullen and Kevin Martin.

Gators Open Final Season at McKethan Stadium Against Marshall - Florida Gators
My wife is really unhappy. One of her nieces is in town that HATES baseball (her dad is a Cubs fan so as a Southsider that makes a lot of sense) and she feels obligated to entertain her along with my MIL who also has tickets and feels like she cannot go as well.
Happy Valentine's Day.
Rent your company a couple of movies and leave menus from the restaurants that deliver....
There's now beer to help with that!
Like 74Nole says rent some movies but make sure one of them is We Are Marshall and maybe it will stir some feelings for her to want to be there and cheer on the underdogs.
We are celebrating valentines at the ball game.
The long wait is finally over - good.
We need improvement in all areas.
Will the experienced players step up?
Which of the frosh, from a very interesting class, step up?
We are about to get answers.
She does like beer.
I will bring my wife's and my MIL's tickets with me. @wingtee and @gatorjjh know where I sit and can vouch for their awesomeness except for the fact of having to sit near me. @WESGATORS also knows where I sit, but I think that he prefers sitting with the hecklers. And I bet they would give him grief if they saw him sitting in the first row and start heckling him.
