    Top seeded Gators hosts Auburn in a best of 3 series with the winner advancing to Omaha. Auburn swept thru the NCST regional as the #2 seed while UF was pushed to the limit in its regional. These two teams met during the regular season in a weekend series at the MAC with the Gators taking 2 of 3. The Gators won Game 1, 3-1 as Singer bested Mize with the help of an Indy 2-run homer in the bottom of the 1st inning. It was a great game that last just over 2 hours. Auburn roughed Kowar in game 2 and the Gators took the series by winning game 3.

    Mize and Singer will start Game 1 and I expect another quick Game. Mize was selected number 1 overall in this week's draft and Singer went #18. Headed into the season Singer was ranked as the top ranked college pitcher, so I hope he does not go out and try to prove the scouts wrong. A chip on the shoulder is fine, just do not need him thinking he has something else to prove. He had a great regular season and was a high pick. Just be yourself.

    In Game 2 Kowar will face Tanner Burns. Kowar was also a 1st round pick selected at #33. Kowar however does need to step up from his past few appearances. He has not been good and is leaving way too many pitches up in the zone. Game 1 is very important, but with those 2 guys it is clearly a toss up. also Auburn defeated Kowar in the regular season.

    Game 3/ If Necessary. Hope not necessary for the right reasons.

    Game 1: Noon, Saturday
    Game 2: Noon Sunday
    Game 3;If Necessary, Monday 8:30pm

      Is there tv coverage for the matchup of two first rounders?

        Every game of all 8 Super Regionals are being televised on one of the ESPN networks. I'm hoping Schwarz is cleared to play. Need his bat. I would actually like to see Girand stay behind the plate and JJ playing 1st.

        There are 8 supers, but I too hope Schwarz can play in the regionals. ESPN is scheduled for noon Sat and Sun and the rubber game Mon if needed. Taking two series from au is just what fans want to see and it makes for one of the best super regional this year.

        NC State just beat Stetson 7-4.

        Probably a typo but UNC beat Stetson. NCST was eliminated at home in its regional by Auburn.

        These Gators need to reclaim their early season high level of pitching, hitting, fielding. They've faltered in all these.
        And this needs to raise their "fire" towards repeat.

          Weitzel said today that JJ has been practicing and throwing, but perhaps that was all lip service up until lineups must be submitted. I still say if he can swing a bat he will be at 1B.

            Agree. If he's still healing from a cracked bone it would be risky to put him behind the plate. But if he can hit it would make perfect sense to put him at 1b. That would solve the Bell or Smith quandry and get us a pretty good defensive catcher and a guy coming on at the plate at catcher.

            Sorry, I misread the story that said “He is out the lineup with a broken hand...he status for Super Regional Is Uncertain”

            Here’s to hoping he can swimg the bat.

            Why in the HELL didn’t Dalton tag up on that fly ball to deep Center? He would have score on the double by Bell. Huge mistake.

            Maldanado is ALWAYS the DH. Not a good start to this game. Singer throwing too many pitches. They got a 2-out RBI from their #9 hitter in the 2nd and our #8 guy struck out with 2 outs and runners on 2nd and 3rd.
