    ODU on the board first with a slow dribbler to short stop with two outs...

    but the shift was on, runner on third comes home for the 1-0 lead.

    Makes the stolen base move that much more brilliant (2nd -> 3rd).

    Go GATORS!

    Why did their pitcher keep throwing to 1st base-the runner was just standing there. The pitcher looked like he was in the twilight zone and then the balk was so blatant it almost looked intentional.

    No clue.. Strangest thing Ive ever seen. I guess to try and see if tipping the squeeze. So lets just balk him in instead..Beloso was a step off bag each time. lol

    UVA breaks up PG/no-no in 6th. And then ODU P pulled. Raining hard again

    In watching the excellent LSU-Oregon game last night I was thinking could this year's Gators have shown the fight and resilience that LSU showed in coming back from several deficits on the road in chilly weather-- and I had to conclude - no f...... way.
    What is the missing element? Mental toughness, aka guts, grit, fire-in-the-belly, know what I mean. They were a mentally fragile ball club that when things didn't go quite go there way they tended to fold. That is among the main disappointments many are feeling after this weekend's flameout

    Jeff Cardozo was talking on his radio show yesterday about his impression from being around the team all year. Said he just didn't see that bonding commitment to each other that Gator teams in the past have had. He said it seemed that several players were more concerned about improving their draft status than in winning ball games, swinging for the fences when moving runners up or going the other way would have helped the team in the moment. He's an insider, so have to believe what he said. So, basically, selfishness. I hope O'Sullivan culls those players out, no matter what their credentials are.

    6 SEC teams were seeded and only Florida failed to advance to the Supers. And with LSU winning in Eugene, 6 SEC teams are still alive in the Final 16. Pretty solid.

    What is going on with these pitchers? ODU pitcher throws 2 balls over the catchers head and gives up the lead.

    Seems clear whom Jeff was referring to.... that same player failed to drive in a run in the last 10 games-- pretty amazing stat given the credentials and hype.

    He seemed to be talking about multiple players, but I get your point.

    I have no inside info, but I've thought this for awhile. Seems spot on to me.
    I once helped coach a very talented travel team that was underachieving. Then the two best players got into a fight after a loss and one quit the team. Team played much better after that. "Team" concept is often underrated and overlooked.
