    The UF/Arkansas game is now showing at start time of 11:00 PM. There was another rain delay this morning and now the 2nd game of the day is only in the 4th inning. Ridiculous!!! They should not start a game that late, but the SEC is in bed with ESPN and they dictate how the tournament is played. Single elimination on Day 1, then double elimination for 2 days, then back to single eliminiation for the semifinals and finals. Nuts!!

      Leadoff W and HR gives Arky a 2-0 lead in the T2.

      See ya. Baker gives up a grand slam to a .256 pinch hitter, who hit his first HR of the season. 8-2 Arky.

      Ending the SEC year on a slump - hitting, fielding, base running, pitching.

      If this team can't find some momentum, gonna be a short NCAA Tourney.

      Totally agree. Last year's team was coming together and peaking right now. This year's team is floundering. 10-10 over their last 20, with injuries to our Captain and our best pitcher. India is 7-39 for the season with runners in scoring position and Wil Dalton is in an extended slump. Base running has become a real issue the last month, our 2nd baseman has been benched and our closer has been shelled 2 out of his last 3 appearances. We've lost 5 of our last 6. Not the way you want to be heading into the NCAA tournament.

        Yeah, 1 win in their last 8 games? Definitely a problem.

          This is a good wake up call. The last series as well as the SEC tourney means nothing to this squad. Sure I wish we would’ve played better, but this team has its eyes set on Omaha.

          Too early to panic.

            I agree the last seven games haven't meant anything, but did it cost us the #1 seed?

            I really hope you are correct but I don’t see this team making it back. They’re doing nothing well right now and Its been slipping away from them for a while. I don’t believe in flipping the switch and it magically all comes together. They have a few days now to ponder their situation and turn things around and I will gladly eat crow if they do.

            Last year we got hot at the right time. Right now we are not and we miss Faedo, JJ, Guthrie, Larson, and Rivera. India has gone cold so that doesn't help either. We will see what we do in the Regionals...

            I’m sure you thought this team was done after last year’s blowout in the SEC tourney too :rolleyes:

            It’s baseball. Teams go through terrible stretches all the time, just so happens we are doing it at the end of the season (when we already have a national seed and home field wrapped up). These past 7-8 games have meant nothing at all. I do expect a switch to flip once the games start mattering more.
