    Game 1 is Friday at Noon on ESPN2. Here are some facts for comparison and discussion:
    #4 seeded Florida is 49-12, having won 11 straight games. They finished 2nd in the SEC at 17-7. RPI is #6, SOS #11, 19-9 vs Top 25 RPI teams.
    Unseeded Baylor is 35-21. They finished 4th in the Big 12 at 14-13. RPI is #17, SOS #5, 7-14 vs. Top 25 RPI teams.

    Team Batting Average Florida .339 Baylor .286
    Home Runs Florida 87 Baylor 31
    Doubles Florida 107 Baylor 74
    Walks Florida 270 Baylor 150
    Strikeouts Florida 230 Baylor 205
    Hit By Pitch Florida 65 Baylor 31
    Stolen Bases Florida 103/112 Baylor 39/53
    On Base % Florida .449 Baylor .364

    Fielding % Florida .976 Baylor .968

    Team ERA Florida 2.91 Baylor 3.53
    Hits Allowed Florida 308 Baylor 348
    Walks Florida 149 Baylor 174
    Hit By Pitch Florida 37 Baylor 27
    Strikeouts Florida 257 Baylor 295
    Home Runs Allowed Florida 38 Baylor 40
    Batting Average Against Florida .221 Baylor .251

    Although Baylor has 6 pitchers on the roster, they rely primarily on 2 pitchers:
    RyLee Crandall 35 games, 26 starts, 147 IP, 55 BB, 105 K's, 17 HR, 3.10 ERA
    Aliyah Binford, 29 games, 22 starts, 143 IP, 66 BB, 147 K's, 13 HR, 3.23 ERA

    The Gators have the higher ranking and the clear statistical edge. However in a 3 game series anything can happen. Gooo Gators!!!

    It seemed like yesterday February and the season just started. Now we are at super regionals. I’m super excited but at the same time a little sad.

    81% of the teams who won Game 1 of a Super Regional have gone on to the College World Series. Today starts our run!!

    And makes for a calmer weekend, as those of us who went to Blacksburg in 2022 can attest!

    If all teams were exactly evenly matched, one would expect this number to be 75%. Interestingly, all disparities in team quality are captured in that additional 6%. So yes, win today!

    No line up posted just yet. But I suspect our will be the same as regionals with maybe 1 or 2 changes
