I am optimistic we avoid sweeps and win two more series and make it to Hoover.

Alabama is done, by far the toughest remaining schedule. Will more than likely come down to us beating Missouri and Florida beating Miss State on the final weekend of play to get in.
I think Miss State gets it done with some ease because they are playing well now and have Bama left. Mizzu is our best shot

at least two of the teams ahead we get to go head to head with, so, it'll be up to us to finish strong...still, OT, your over/under was 8...that's just one more game, at least for a push, but wouldn't doubt we make the over...that, to me, is a BIG accomplishment...if I remember correctly, Coach V, in his first season is already surpassing Coach Serrano...not to shabby...:thumbsup:

GO BIG ORANGE!

someone else posted the over/under at 8 and I thought we'd surpass that easy. Now I did say before the season if we caught some breaks and stayed healthy we could go 15/15 or close to it. So far the "breaks" didn't go our way against Florida and LSU or we'd be 9 and 9 right now.

This weekend is huge for us IMO.........don't know what to expect however I'll be posting the Pick'em later tonight or in the morning.

Georgia feels like a team that has somewhat overachieved this year just looking at their numbers. Feel like we could get 2 this weekend if we keep it rolling from last weekend

oh, ok...so 15/15...wow...nice...I was wondering if we would even make the 8...yeah, Gator/Tiger was big, for sure...yep, still got some ball to play yet, and it could be hard and heavy...we'll see how the boys do...never know...

GBO!

Really enjoyed watching Ole Miss/Miss state tonight. Miss state stays hot and Ole miss paid for breaking a cardinal rule of baseball. Breaking the rule of Never intentionally walking the winning run bite them

Could very well come down to the last weekend. The schedule could not be more favorable. Missouri is 8-9 on the road, lost 2/3 at UK this weekend. Vandy is struggling a bit and we get them at home (5-7 away) and the only staff worse than ours in SEC play is UK, who we also get at home.

I thought this weekend would be the toughest to get a series win. Sure, some of that is my dislike of Vandy, but that one is at home. We need to get the series win against UK and I think we have a good shot.

Me too. UGA has been pretty lights out at home, which is why I thought they might sweep us...we gotta take care of business the next two weeks and hope...mostly hope. :p
