RE: CWS
To be fair, OSU lost the best pitcher in college baseball (statistically) before the start of the SR round. If the Beavers still had him, I think LSU would already be done.

But the thing is, I am pulling for LSU here (!!!), because there is no excuse for that situation to have even existed at OSU. If the Beavers somehow rally and win this thing, their record and title will be very tainted IMO.

I don't want LSU to win just because of Blue. But I also don't want Oregon State to win for any reason.

Much as I dislike the idea of an SEC championship series, I don't want TCU anywhere near the national title.
Go Gators!

You would think think they could get some decent umps. I've seen better officiating in Little League.

I'm somewhat with you on this, but once the Oregon State thing came out, "anybody but TCU" became "anybody but TCU or OSU."

Can't believe I'm pulling for the $EC, but... there you go. Of course I was backing Fullerton, but let's be honest: Fullerton came from a relatively weak conference and region, and they managed to fluff the chances they did have in the CWS. Fullerton was basically better than everyone else in the West aside from Oregon State, and incredibly the Titans got their shot at the Beavers and blew it.

Agree. If I'm not mistaken, Malcolm Gillis was a Florida alum. So there's another reason.

And, according to some posters, they championed us for admission to the SEC 25 years ago.

I think I dislike UF less, so I guess that means I am "for" them.

Florida beat LSU 2 games to 1 in Gainesville this year. The first game was won by Fla 1-0 in a pitcher's duel between Faedo and Lange. It should be interesting.

With Walker injured, they're gambling with "all staff" tonight, then going with Poche and Lange the final two games (they hope).

RE: CWS
One thing LSU hasn't run out of is called strikes in the outside batter's box (early in the game).

And they can hit.

Singer's pitches have some nasty movement. First time Ive watched him pitch. I'm impressed.

Glad to see The U of LS lose. Just because I am anti-LSU does not mean am pro-Florida.

RE: CWS
Florida's starting lineup tonight does not have a single batter hitting over .300, and only one with an on-base percentage over .400. Four guys hitting below .260, including one regular .179. Team AVG is below .270...and they don't hit for power either, or steal many bases. Pitching and defense. Period.

LSU has committed 3 errors in the first 2 innings and are now down 2-0. If not for a couple line drive outs, Florida would be up at least 4-0.
