I don't know who feels worse but I hope CTV understands what he needs (recruiting, coaching/training, etc.) to get this program to the next level. 2-4 over the last 2 weekends stings.
I do. 100%. Pete is gonna hurt for a while over it.

And my point is...it's about them, not about us and I don't care how much you donate. Everybody else is gonna move on, he has to live with that play...but that's one play in a season. Just like Basketball, one good play by them, poof...

Wanna be mad? Be mad.

Point it in the right direction.

I dunno about the 2nd part, I don't have any inside info...I think if there are SEC pitchers riding the pine, there must be a reason...it's not Andersons' first rodeo.
Oh I don't think they were any real arms there except for Shultz that wasnt used

The Schultz thing is a bit of a quandary, but that's it for me...and he pitched today with the season on the line, so that one is hard to explain, but I am a fan of that kid from his freshman year...Lingo got right at the end, would be the only other questionable thing, why we didn't get more from him...baseball is a funny game.

Not pointing to one play...

I see games counting earlier in the season the same as late in the season. They all count the same. No one player should be blamed. It's a long season.

But we're simply talking about MAKING the SEC tournament. Not winning it, but simply making it.

The way I view it is missing out on the SEC T didn't simply boil down to today. There were games in earlier SEC series that were there for the taking an UT didn't capitalize.

I'm not mad at the baseball program. They competed this season but they should've made the SECT, IMO.

So did lingo improve his draft status with his strong performances of late? Does he stay or go?
Somebody posted somewhere that by somebody he's projected around the 30-35th pick range...I don't know if that is accurate and I don't know if he's 21, but if he is...he gone.

I don't disagree with any of that, we had our chances, didn't get it done.

I say that as a Rays fan. Stupid losses in April & May loom large as the trading deadline comes around in late July. 5-6 wasted games early is often the difference in the Rays staying together or selling off.

I'll put it like this Boca...He's either the recruiter he's nationally recognized to be or he ain't, Fulmer will either give him what he needs to win or he won't, and the coaching staff will either develop them or be gone...

Me and You, we don't have much say in the matter.

Happy Hour, or Cry in the Beer Hour has been extended to 10 PM. :dance2:


GBO!!!

Disappointing end to the season. However, I think the coaching staff did a lot with smoke and mirrors. I thought this group would win 8 SEC games and they got 12. If Vitello can keep this pitching coach for a few years, they have a chance to make a move in next year where they are not scrambling for the coveted 12th (out of 14) spot in the conference.

The curse of Mike Hamilton lives on.

Pretty sure he is gone. I’m also guessing we will not recognize this team next season. I think many will be looking to transfer and many just stop playing entirely. Partially due to the nature of college baseball but also due to the size of the incoming class. Not enough room for everyone now and they are still recruiting for this class. Talking about current starters too hitting the road.
