    Never would have expected to see MSU sitting at 5-4 right now—

    Corndogs just seem to have the ability to play over their heads—

    Florida still has 16 games (of their remaining 22) against teams 8th or lower. Going 12-4 or better in those games at least gives UF a shot.

    Plus UF doesn’t play 2nd place Arky or A&M.

    UGA is in Athens so that isn’t ideal but at least the team will be road tested by then.

    Haven't seen Ga yet, but never have faith in them holding on. Vandy is the real deal.

    2x—

    I’ve seen them twice on TV—not your normal UGA team by a long shot—they can swing it, play pretty good D, and have more decent arms than I can remember—1 true freshman that has hit 100 a few times (Wilcox I think)—

    UGA 3 starters all 96+, and a FR RP around 100. UK had every chance to win series vs them yesterday though. Still not 100% sold on them as 'elite' but they look pretty good.

    Vandy is similar to MSU,,great bats, still suspect pitching after top 2 IMO. Still best 2 teams overall probably and may be good enough to separate, but giving up runs late usually doesn't go well in the long haul.

    With Vandy going down, UGA is 7-2 and A&M is 6-2-1. Everyone else at 3 losses or more.

    Of UF’s 16 games against bottom competition, they are now 1-0. 15 left.

    SEC had some good teams. We did beat FSU and Miami out of conference. Not bad for a down year.

    In fairness, the SWAC just lost a home series to Boston College. Mike Martin is not having a great year thus far.

    Miami is a bit better but their RPI is still plus 40.

    This will be a very important weekend in the SEC baseball standings. Every ranked team is playing another ranked team. In golf you would call this moving day. I expect we can start narrowing in on the better teams after this week.

    4/5 - 7:00 PM (8) Arkansas @ (12) Auburn
    4/5 - 7:00 PM (5) Vanderbilt @ (6) Georgia
    4/5 - 7:00 PM South Carolina @ Alabama
    4/5 - 7:30 PM Kentucky @ Missouri
    4/5 - 7:30 PM (24) Florida @ (22) Ole Miss

    My daughter is at Ole Miss and I visit her a couple times a semester. I worked it out to visit her this weekend and will go to two of the three games, looking forward to seeing how our team plays in person. Should be a fun weekend as it the grove bowl spring game and I get one of my favorite eats in Boure. Also one of her good friends there is from Tampa and is Jordan Butler’s girlfriend. Looking forward to a fun trip.

    Very nice ballpark to watch a game at—their norm will be a sellout—another good place to go to eat if you get a chance is “Old Venice” on the town square if you can get in—enjoy your trip to see your daughter!

    Thanks 74. Have been up there several times as this is her sophomore year. Watched their baseball team play UGA last time I was there and yes the park is beautiful along with most of their facilities. Old venice is very good also, so many good places to eat, I would weigh 300lbs if I was there on a regular basis.
