    No. 6 Florida State melts down in ninth straight loss to No. 7 Florida

    For a time, it looked like it would finally be over.

    After a J.C. Flowers grand slam in the fifth inning, the Florida State baseball team led Florida 6-0 in Gainesville and was on pace to snap its eight-game losing streak to the Gators in blowout fashion Tuesday.
    But, as has happened so many times during the streak, FSU melted down.
    By the end of the next inning, that six-run lead had been turned into a six-run deficit thanks to a disastrous display on the mound and in the field.

    When the dust had cleared, the No. 6 Seminoles (13-2, 2-1 in ACC) were dealt a 20-7 loss by the No. 7 Gators (14-5) inside Gainesville's McKethan Stadium, their ninth straight loss to UF and 14th in the last 15 games.

    It was a series of innings where everything that could go wrong did. The Seminoles -- who had committed five errors in their first 14 games -- had three errors over the fifth and sixth innings and could have been assessed a few more.

    "Some of the things that went on, you're just asking 'Where'd that come from?'" Martin said.

    "We made mistakes that we've not made all year and in so doing, Florida took full advantage of them."

    I live in Tallahassee. Mike Martin is a genuine classy good guy. He may be the Marv Levy of college baseball but the failure to win at all doesn't mean he wasn't a wiiner. That said I can't wait to win number 10 in a row. Kevin Sullivan is the SOS of our baseball program Go Gators

    I'm sure he has a lot of fans, the Nole sitting next to me was loud then went to obnoxious after they got out to a lead, then after 7 he decided to move back up with the rest of the tribe :)

    There are several chapters to “11” before “genuine classy good guy”—

    What’s that ol’ saying “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”—

    You need to read all the chapters—

    I am sure you took your shower as soon as you got home even though it was the middle of the week.

    I’m sure i’d Be rated as an “obnoxious gator fan” in amongst the nole tribe....hehehe...

    I actually sat in the middle of the Georgia student section one year in Jax. It was so funny getting them to try to drown me out....they made a raucous in the process while THEIR team had the ball....

    I had several students laughing as I was making “noise” ....yelling: “COME ON YOU JAWJA FANS, TRY YO DROWN ME OUTTTTT.....!!”

    Later, )after the gators had won :) ), one student sitting down a few rows below me came up and shook my hand saying “ I wish we had more alumni like you!” :)
    Those dawg fans ain’t that bad after all.

    This is quite simply the most egregious lie I have ever read on the internet.

    After we moved to the third base side getting out of the wind it was fun looking back over to where we were sitting and only Noles were there by the sixth but then in the eighth there was next to nobody except you and the Gator sitting next to you.
