    Not watching and losing interest which is sad, had high hopes with everyone returning. I know season is still young but losing to Tenn is baseball is numbing

        That was an embarrassing display of relief pitching.

          Great recruiting and poor coaching sound like another SEC coach? The only difference is that Sully has the one Natty.

          Investing that amount of money in a program watched by at best 4k people was always a bad investment.

          Totally agree....but I do think Sully has lost alot of confidence in Jack and was hoping to get one more inning out of Franco. Sully isn't good a managing his staff IMO. But in fairness to Sully, Jack needs to get his shyt together, whether starting or relieving. If he wants a next level look he better figure how to be at least effective in some role.

          Pitching is an issue, combine that with a lineup that likes to watch 89 mph FB come right down the middle of the plate is maddening. Also that last breaking ball that Sterling watched ( I believe it was Sterling) he acted like it was the greatest pitch he had ever seen. Furthermore, he got nothing but breaking balls for the most part. He should have known that's what he was getting and NOT the FB. They had an open base and were willing to either get him to bite at a bad pitch or walk him.

            Huge win to avoid the sweep at Tennessee. 3-run home run to go from down 6-4 to up 7-6 and then finished it off. Needed that win badly.

              Gators hung on to win 7 to 6 and avoid a second road sweep.

              Well a W is always nice, but l another poor performance all around. If not for Armstrong's 3 run pinch hit bomb and Scott's excellent bullpen performance, the weekend was kept from being a complete disaster. This team has a very long way to go.

                Quite a game. Scott gets his first win. Now let's get payback from the clowns!

                  MUST win game vs FSU tonight. FSU record wise is not very good at 16-12 (11-10 in ACC play) but ranked #24. Our Gators might be tettering a bit after losing the series @ #6 Tenn this past weekend easily. If we lose to FSU, our season may very well spiral downward if our guys can't pull things together. Expectations are very high with this program and so far we have been underwhelming while trying to figure out our pitching rotation that hasn't been the same since Covid shut down the season last year. I'm afraid this team just doesn't have the it factor and will struggle to get into a regional.

                      Our hitting is hot garbage. Staring at pitches right down the plate...

                          Agree with durty that our hitting sucked and we were probably like 0-8 or something crazy with risp but fsu was sending out some of their best pitchers against us while our starter had a 6+ ERA and we were able to pull it out. Maybe calilao should be getting more playing time.

                              Huge win vs a hated rival. Love a good walk off HR for the good guys.

                                  Leftwich in relief was throwing some nasty breaking balls. 7 Ks in 4 innings.
