    My two cents, if someone would have told me Vandy is starting Leiter, JY and Hickey go 0-7, Mace would give up 6 runs with 2 homers in the first 4 innings, and the Gators would still win, I'd thought you were crazy. Great job Gators and Coach Sully for believing in yourselves.

    Ralph Garr rocking the shorts. Great throw back there.

    They don’t put two teams from the same conference in the same regional. So UF can’t host the SWAC and Miami unless this is some COViD exception to limit travel...

    This year's Gator team hits as well or better than Sully's championship teams. The defense and pitching have been the problem and I still can't figure out how pitchers who were so good last year and the year before can be so average this year. Oh well. We're still a very dangerous team capable pf beating anybody. Would love for them to take the series vs. Vandy and at least get in the hunt to host a Regional.

    This is the issue in my mind. 2019, the pitching was abysmal. It was very good last year but the schedule was very poor aside from 3 games at Miami. So basically we assumed 2019 data was corrected because of three great games in 2020. Oops...

    Greg,

    To me you have to take the 16 or 17 games from the canceled season and just flush them. On a season’s body of work they are irrelevant. So we are looking at pitchers who threw in 2019 and do not have a true seasoning or maturity to evaluate but that’s what most try to do.

    And they even removed one vanity fan for a little while and we all thought that was the Whistler… Almost like they have some kind of code where they invisibly tag another person And they have a back up Whistler ready Ha Ha

    In times past there were two guys doing it. Most Candy fans hate it too. They've been told to cut back. One whistle is one too many. IMO

    Understood, maybe it will be the same this year, but there has been a lot of speculation that there could be exceptions this year due to covid. If we host I'm sure we get at least 1 of them, hopefully miami.

    Canes getting hammered by BC today, rpi dropping like a rock fwiw. Fsu trying to win Troy series, up 1 after 6.
