    OK. Enough clowning around . . . time to get serious! State is 16-1 so far this season. Only loss was on Friday 2/22, 0-1 vs. Southern Miss. Other weekend series were Youngstown St and Maine. One weekend they were at a tourney in Frisco TX and played Sam Houston St and Texas Tech. Nebraska game cancelled due to COLD. This Wed they won a laugher: 18-1 vs. Grambling. State is ranked #6.

    Is Miss state leading the Conference in ERA? Great pitching staff? Starters great? What about their bullpen? Has it been tested?

    Yes at 1.86 & #2 in BA at .311

    My pick to win SEC back at start of Feb. Although 1st & 9th in SEC will be separated by only 3 or 4 games IMO. And don't see anyone getting over 17 or 18 total SEC wins. Other than Mizzu, everyone will have at least 10 wins.

    The bullpen nor any part of staff has been tested. They arent 16-1 yet #84 RPI for nothing.lol Bad home loss if lose to #84...;) I kid.

    Goals for the weekend—

    Throw strike one—all weekend—pound the zone down—

    Play solid defense—

    Swing the bat well—have intensity the entire AB, every AB—
    (Time for Dalton and Lang to pick up the pace)—

    Win the Series—Go Gators!

    Their #1 recruit JT Ginn is Saturday starter. He was on a couple Pre Season All American teams before playing a game, which is BS IMO. Be great if yall shelled him as a welcome to SEC gift

    That would be quite unusual. 19-11 I believe has happened recently but 18 or less?

    Bottom half minus Mizzu will cause more havoc than usual,,JMO

    I am still a little unsure of the quality of the SEC this year. The conference is 3rd in RPI last I checked. The schedules have been quite poor overall. We shall see. Who knows. An 18-12 winner would make for a very interesting national seed discussion.

    Im unsure of top half honestly,, dont buy LSU, UGa, UF(sorry) or OM as top 10 type programs right now. A Vandy or MSU could run away w/ it with 20+ wins, certainly wont be shocked.

    But think as whole will be better than usual. Bama will be good, Vols look good. Right now Id say UK would be 11th -12th place type & they still have plenty of talent.

    Last time we had an 18-win conference champion was 1992...LSU finished 18-6 :) They were also the last team to win the conference with only 19 wins (2012, 19-11).

    Go GATORS!

    Brilliant. I can always count on you to have the stats at hand.

    18 wins seems unlikely. Parody may play a bigger role this year than normal but you still have to think 20 wins is the threshold. When looking at series @Ole Miss, @Vandy, @LSU, @UGA plus home vs MSU. Even going 8-7 over those 15 is no easy task. That would mean UF has to go 12-3 over the other 15. Tall order this year.

    Take the pitch to the opposite field. When we do that, we get the hits!
