Looking forward to wrapping up series in Sat and then watching Hill dominate. Reminds me a little of 2011 rotation...

SIAP but I heard Blake Cooper is back on the team as a Student Assistant Coach. Maybe he will bring some tutelage to these aces as well as some good luck.

I don't know if I'd call hill an ace yet. He's very good, but crowe and Schmidt are on a different level than him

Not a fan of the hyperbole. The "starting rotation this season has a chance to be one of the best the University of South Carolina has ever seen.". Pretty lofty expectations for these three guys. The author must have never heard of Earl Bass and those 1970's teams.

In 1975, the season of our first world series appearance our 4 man rotation went 49-5-1. Had back to back no-no's that season too.

All that aside, I'm excited about these three. I'm definitely pumped about our pitching staff, the team, and the season in general. Gonna be a good one.

I think you're thinking that "has a CHANCE to be ONE of the best" has a different meaning than what it typically has.....

I mean I understand the phrasing. I just don't agree that they have a chance to be one of the best ever. They're going to be really good no doubt, but in my opinion, not one of the best we've ever had.

I disagree. They deserve to be in the conversation. They will likely all be drafted in the top 5 rounds. I may only be 25 but on paper it's in the top 2 or 3 in my lifetime.

Agreed, but he should be one of the best Sunday starters in the league if not the best. Not often you have a talented young guy like Hill repeat as a Sunday starter. If he can show better command of his pitches this year and at 6'5" throwing 94-95. Look out.

If he can lower the HBP and the walks this year, he's definitely going to be special

I'm 42 and they certainly are one of the best rotations in my lifetime.

Also, the game of baseball is different now. Of those 4 starters in 1975, they started 56 games, completed 26 of them and accounted for 428 of the total 503 innings pitched by the Gamecocks that season (85%)....

I'm 47 and very excited about this pitching staff. I think that they can be every bit as good as the Killer B's were.


While on the subject, what's with every player these days having to be the GOAT?

I mean, in reality athletes are overall bigger and stronger than they were in the past, but it isn't really possible to compare players from many generations back (when in their prime) to a player today. It isn't like you can have them play against one another to prove anything.

I'm not sure what's more shocking in this thread - the debate about this rotation being the best ever or women voluntarily giving their age

Since I'm the only woman who has volunteered her age, what reason would I have to lie? I'm damn proud of my 42 years, soon to be 43 in two weeks.

Plus many times I've mentioned that I've been watching Gamecock Baseball for 30+ years so, I'm obviously not fresh out of college.

Finally...I was a batgirl hence my user name. We haven't had those for 20 years.
