    Looks like our next game is on Monday at 2pm against NC State (ESPN) in case anyone's interested.

    I worked on one of my motorcycles this morning. Taking a break and will return to do some more after lunch.

    Happy Father's Day to all! My only kids have been the 4-legged variety and I spent some quality time smothering the latest rescue with some fatherly love......

    Deep breaths...we're still in it....GO Gators!

    We had a meh game in OK City and rebounded, so here's hoping we can do the same in Omaha.

    Wouldn’t mattered if it was a wider or higher pitch we would have hacked. It’s been that way all season

    The difference in this game was the patience and discipline of the Texas A&M hitters.

    I’m not really wanting to gripe about the umpires, but I did not feel like the gator pitches were getting the same courtesy of 2-6 inches Off the plate like A&M was

    That’s the only time it should be an issue.

    Yeah it is amazing we had a chance to win the game considering we got squeezed and they didn’t, and our 1, 3 and 4 hitters went 0-12 with 9 k’s.

    Poor Cags can’t get any protection.

    One more foot and the umps would have done a fantastic job. Sometimes the baseball gods aren't on your side. I still can't believe that Coastal Carolina hit was fair. That inch won them the title IMO. We had 3 plays within a foot, the play at third by Dale, the bases loaded slow roller, and the ninth inning blast. Any one of those is a foot in our favor, we would have won. I tip my hat to this team, but there is an element of luck there whether you strike out 18 times and leave 12 guys on base or not.

    Time for the Rally caps! Even someone like myself, whom knows little about baseball, know the odds are long with a first game loss.

    But the Gators have shown amazing resilience in the playoffs this campaign.

    I would love to see UF play FSU in the final, with UF disappointing FSU for what? THE 24TH OR 25TH TIME?

    Just got in after a redeye flight returning from my twin Niece and Nephew's college graduation. After reviewing this thread, have I missed anything?

    Get behind early. Check
    Use challenge on early inning call. Check
    Double digit (10) LOB's. Check
    Double digit (16) SO's. Check
    TAMU hits (2) with 0-2 counts. Check
    TAMU nine hole hitter RBI. Check
    Reminded that the Gators play better in elimination games. Check
    And that getting to Omaha was icing on the cake. Check

    Hopefully the next team we play has shorter outfielders. :)

    Anyone who thinks Sully has gotten complacent is a dope.

    Anyone who has called our team an embarrassment IS the embarrassment.

    Fans are idiots. Those dopes probably really believe Sully killed someone.

    I was adding to your post, not attacking it.

    Just finished the game. Clearly not the result we wanted, but our barely .500 battled all the way to end. Luck is always a factor and will only sometimes be in your favor. I am happy to even be here, but I also think we are definitely not out of it yet. Go gators.

    Don't have to read anything--just sit near them and watch! Not LSU level--but maybe 1/2 step below.
