Holy iaBdfkZ.png it's finally here, been waiting for this ever since NSD ended.

Lots of questions on this ole miss squad, the most optimistic of us are not even expecting to host a regional, whilst the more pessimistic of rebel faithful are doubtful we will even make the tournament.

Hoping that Chris Ellis turns into a solid friday starter, he has the potential but we have yet to see if he can make the big pitches on SEC Fridays.

And, of all of our talented freshman, I am most interested in JB Woodman's potential. He will definitely see some time this weekend, and many MLB teams see him as a true elite pro prospect. If he can hit the ball with as much contact as they say, and if his arm is as strong as rumored, he will be a great player to watch.

Baseball!

Hoping we have a true No. 2 emerge as a starter behind Turnbull. Love the potential of our lineup. Out-of-conference schedule really isn't as difficult as it has been in recent years.

Ready to get it started tomorrow night!

It's been like 8 days haha.

I'm nervous because we don't have a weekend rotation really set in stone yet.

And Karston Whitson is on board for Sunday.

Very nervous, but Maryland is very average.

OM has a challenge too.

Stetson usually isn't too shabby.

Good series for their RPI.

lanekiffin.gif off, this week felt like a lanekiffin.gifing month, the longest week of the offseason.

And yeah, Stetson ain't bad, just gotta settle the freshman in and try to get off to a good start.

If you want to do breakdowns when SEC play starts, maybe we can do articles. That way the front page isn't empty all summer. If we want to do that, @@WadeWilson or @@Benny would need to change it so we can post it in the baseball section too.

Luckily your boy knows some stuff about Stetson.

They have some good players.

Patrick Mazeika can absolutely rake. While not a huge power threat, he always seems to find 1B. Solid hitter.

Garrett Russini is a very good catcher. Had a slow year at the plate last year, but has very good potential. The kind of potential that has him projected as a solid draft pick next year in the round 10-15 range.

Austin Perez is a pretty good Friday starter. Not the best by any means, but experienced and somehow finds a way to win games.

The rest of the rotation is a little shaky but has experience. Their top 4 arms accumulated over 300 innings last year. But outside of Perez was 3-14 last year. But they should be better this year. They did get a really touted freshman pitcher last year in Taylor Cockrell, but I doubt he plays much of a role in our series.

The lineup outside of Mazeika is not very good. Hardly any power. And not overly fast. They arent aggressive on the basepads and strike out way too much.

We should be fine. I really think we win at least 2 with a very good shot of sweeping if we get pass Perez on Friday

That could be an option. There a few of us on here that keep up with it pretty well and could offer up something useful. It'd really be cool if we could make this the place to be for SEC baseball talk

You play Western Carolina now. USM's got cancelled to. They are going to Lake Charles to play in a tourney with Mizzou and McNeese.

Should've been a MSU/USM series. That would've been fun

A few State fans wanted that too from what I read anyway. Oh well. I think I heard somewhere that WCU's RPI was 55 last year. That aint bad. It ain't necessarily good, but it aint bad.....

You know it. There used to be a poster over there that whenever we went down a run, no matter what inning, he stroked out and wanted to fire everyone.

Which exactly why I read SPS. It's good for some freakout laughs.

      LSU just canned Les Miles.    Was reading tiger rant last night, and dude came on and called it for 4pm today. Guess there really are some insiders over there.   Orgeron interim.

      I'm assuming Armada might take over as interim(for some reason this was included in my quote as well?)

      He's definitely earning his check.  I've watched all of y'alls games this year and it just seemed like Tennessee was either playing to their competition or wasn't on the same page or I don't know what....spurts of really great football and then spurts of what the hell?   The difference this year is y'all have been able to overcome those things early in the season.  I think this win is going to be the galvanized game that takes y'all to Atlanta as much as it pains me to say it.

      What he was good at doing this past off-season is hiring Bob Shoop. I had the incredible pleasure of watching John Chavis coordinate our defense for over a decade here, and Bob Shoop brings me memories of Chavis' defenses. So good at halftime adjustments. How many DCs in this game can gameplan to overcome losing 3 of their top 4 players, when those 3 will all be drafted in the first two rounds?(Sutton and JRM this upcoming draft, and Kirkland whenever he decides to leave) If Shoop isn't one of the top candidates for the Broyles award(top assistant coach in college football) so far, the award is a sham.
