Before tonight, I may have thought there were a number of reasons we lost. I’m pretty sure the inexplicable slowdown of the game in the 2nd half was the cause; and it’s not like this was the first time. It just cannot be explained unless you are trying not to lose. Think back a few years ago when UF was in game 2 against LSU in the college World Series. O’ Sullivan brought in the next game starter to close out the game (amongst gasps from the tv announcers) We won that game and were NC’s that year. Our coach played to win and had faith in his pitcher. He did not coach to avoid winning.
