    Sully is the all time winningest coach because of his recruiting, certainly not his coaching. I am not calling for him to be fired poste-haste, I am merely making an observation and I stand by my observation. His teams are soft. They come to show off and the other teams come to play ball.

    What high profile head coach is going to want to come here if we fire our coach because he went a whole 3 or 4 seasons since he didn't win a national championship?

    Jesus he gets us to the world series every other year and has multiple sec championships... Including 2 sec championships and 2 CWS trips, and a NC in the last 3 seasons in the best conference in baseball.

    If the gators won a national championship, 2 sec championships, and 2 playoff appearances in 4 years in football would you be asking for the coach to be fired? I guess we should have fired Spurrier after the 98 or 99 season then. Get some perspective.

      I have not yet agreed with firing Sully as some posters here have called for, however I am very concerned that the elite talent level has seldom proven itself on the field. Sully's teams with few exceptions have been soft and played well below their talent level. That is a coaching issue that deserves a qualitative analysis to identify specific problems. His teams obviously do not devote enough time learning how to bunt or to defend the bunt. The pitchers often give up two strike hits. When our batters go to the plate they do not adjust their grip or swing when they have 2 strikes. That is coaching or the lack thereof. They do not teach the guys playing first base how to play first base. I am not just talking about this year. These have been problems since Sully got here. He is paid a lot of money but it seems all he is good at is recruiting.

        The 2nd-base bag needs to be moved 9" to the right.

        We just lost a game where we hit 4 home runs??
        Gators' team batting average is .301. That is very good.

          WELP, Gators win tonight 9-0 and ONLY allow 2 hits. I don't know what to think now with this great display of hitting, pitching and coaching. Wow total domination tonight and great bounce back by the entire team and coaching staff.

            Barco's breaking ball has been filthy so far. He has served up two meat pitches though. Luckily, JU did not take advantage.

            UF - 2
            JU - 0

              Gators win rubber game 5-2. Allimon (sp?) with some nice pitching to close out.

                It was good to see Aleman have a smooth outing for once. Hopefully, he can build on it.

                  Hopefully all of our pitching and defense will come around.

                  I just looked at the radar from the NWS and rainfall is minimal, but there are some light storms in the area. It may be delayed due to potential lightning but the line of showers is moving so slowly across the area that the rain delay may last for some time.

                  Heck, their team is so mediocre this year they may not even want to play the Gators!

                  Milchin walks the first batter, gives up a single to the 2nd and a 3 run homer to the 3rd. Getting off to a good start. Go Gators

                  Well guess I am not missing anything. I know Milchin had a lot of injuries but we really do not have a legit mid week starter, even against our mid week opponents, all of which have been below average teams relative to the SEC.

                    I don't follow closely enough to actually keep the stats on our pitching but I wonder what the pct of FPS are with our staff and how often they are pitching behind in the count after 2-3 pitches? What's the opponents BA and OB pct against the pitching so far? Anywhere we can find those.

                    That's baseball for ya. Really good pitchers on a lesser team can shut you down. Watch the film and figure it out. Go Gators, peak at the right time.
