    Oh that's right, good point. I forgot they were limping in. Anyone know what A&M or Missouri might be able to throw at us?

    ^^ Speaking of Bama making SECT.. heres something I found kinda funny.

    Hoping they win today vs aTm, but need 9th inning rally. Otherwise bottom 3 will all be 7-20.

    Heres what the bottom 3 fighting for 1 spot have left(and the funny part)

    Bama @ Uga
    UK vs Vandy
    SC(east) @ MSU

    Worst 3 vs best 3 to end season.

    Just like with the gators basketball team, earlier this year, it looks like the baseball team will have to *win* its way into the ncaa’s.

    Who will we play in our 1st SEC Tourney game?

    Any chance that team does not throw their number 1?

    No one should be throwing #1 on Tuesday, unless taking this weekend off. Basically a mid week game vs SEC opp.

    If you win & play Wed. you might see one.

    Ill also add if you get Auburn on your side you wont see the #1 until Fri/Sat. Playing to hopefully get 1 this weekend. #2 Fri(tonight), Burns(#1) on Sat.

    If it works I like it, treat Tuesday as glorified practice, go home & rest. If doesn't work & have to win Tues. up a famous creek w/ no paddle.

    So your saying we don’t throw Mace on Tuesday? Isn’t it do or die for us??

    You must be talking about the 6-8 seeds

    100.
    This is must win. Coached a long time and I’d definitely go with him on 4 days. I might limit him to 70 pitches but 100% for sure I pitch him.

    When it is win or go home you never pitch anyone but your best.

    Wish we knew more on Dyson.
    1-2 innings would be huge out of pen w Butler

    Oh, I personally agree. Im sending him out there if he sez hes good to go.. I was just guessing based on what seems to be the norm. And every arm is different as far as recovery time, no idea on Mace. It would be 5th day, but an early(10:30) start if the 11 seed

    Yep. We win one and we got a shot. We win 2 and get ready for Juanito Wholestaff.

    Sports a funny thing with regards to momentum. We win one game in the tournament and look out as daddy mo will be in the house.

    There was discussion pre-SEC season how many wins it would take to claim the title. Most years it is 20-21. Vandy looks likely to get to 23 tomorrow. Very impressive.

    So I see we sit one game behind Auburn. If we win and Auburn loses to LSU again then we will be even in the SEC at 13-17. Since we did not play them during the season, what is used to break the tie (overall season record, coin flip, money money money, or which fan base has caused less complaints against the SEC HQ)??? In case you are wondering Florida already has one more regular season win more than Auburn.

    I think AUs win over UGa would give them the tie breaker as far as seeding. As far as selection for regionals, its a mismatch. I would just hope they took all 11. Mizzu would also be in trouble.

    AU does have #1 SOS, about the best hope for at large selection. UF #2, Mizuu #24

    honestly if AU cant win game 3 w/ #1 vs TBA, they have no business going anywhere. But scoring 1 run a game vs LSU crap pitching is not going to get it done. They were showing so much promise at the plate last couple weeks, even vs UGas ridiculous staff...baseball.
