    With 35 on the Fall roster and 2 HS kids coming in January, we knew there would have to be some roster moves after Fallball.

    LHP Cole Maye, LHP Colton Gordan and MIF Juco-Transfer Brock Howard are all moving on.

    Interesting with Maye as I know some had high expectations for him. Hopefully that means the freshman arms have overtook him, if true, has to be a great sign for this coming season..

    Wow, Brock Howard did not even make it on a roster. Gone before he even got listed. Not even enough time for a cup of coffee, as they say. I, also, had high hopes for Cole May. He had imposing size on the mound, but he never really seemed to get going. Didn't pitch much as a freshman and redshirted last year. As for Colton, sorry to see him leave since he is from my area. He never got going, either. Possibly, there were some clues in Fall ball that I did not see or pick up on. Maybe someone (Gatorgal04 or gatorjjh?) could shed some light on this.

    BTW, how many are we allowed to have on the playing roster?

    Maye pitched in the last O&B game. He was wild, ...but some wildness can be good (e.g. Nuke Laloosh). Seemed to have a bit of a struggle on the mound compared to others.

    I’ve often referred to the game of baseball vs the business of baseball when talking about professional baseball—

    I’d have to say at the D-1 level the roster is the equivalent of the business of college baseball—

    35 is the roster limit.

    Last year someone here said Sully likes to get that number to a more manageable 30.

    Correct. And at least 27 of those players (and no more than 30 players max) must receive a partial scholarship of at least 25%.

    Said a few weeks ago that the end of fall practice exit interviews can be tough as there were only so many roster spots available for the spring. Telling kids to move on is an unpleasant part of college baseball but with the scholarship limitations, it really can’t be avoided.

    Unfortunately, the 11.7 scholarship limit makes it extremely difficult. Its difficult to comprehend that the third string offensive guard on the football team, who never plays a meaningful down, gets a full scholarship while a Faedo, Singer or India are fortunate to get more than 25%.

    Agreed—at least baseball can and does take advantage of “The Blending Rule”—if anyone is not familiar with this if a student/athlete scores 26 or above on their ACT then all of the academic monies they qualify for do not count against the 11.7 athletic scholarship limit—If a player qualified for every academic dollar available in Florida then the “Athletic money” of meals would be the equivalent to a full ride—of course you’re not talking about someone carrying “B’s and C’s” in the classroom—

    It is my belief that this why Sully recruits the quality student/athletes that he goes after—he uses every advantage offered to him—

    Does 26 refer to the ACT and not the SAT?
