USC over Upstate 7-5 . Krystan White with a grand slam for USC and Victoria Williams hit a two-run shot . Nickie Blue with 2 and one-third of shutout relief . Nickie looked much sharper than she has been lately .

# 2/1 Florida comes to town this weekend . The Gators have a team era of 0.62 , led by 9 game winners Kelly Barnhill and Delanie Gourley . A third pitcher , Aleshia Ocasio , is good enough to be the # 1 starter for most teams . Friday's game is at 7pm , with Saturday at 2pm and Sunday at 1pm .

I would be happy if we could just steal one of these games. That rubber game against Tenn still feels like the one that got away. I hope it does not come back to bite us later.

Florida takes it 13-1 . USC looked overmatched in this one , as both Elliott and Drotar were hit hard . The Gamecocks did break up the no-hitter and shutout with a single and double in the 5th , but it wasn't much of a "moral victory" . Sunday's game starts at 1 pm .

We just aren't capable of competing with the big dogs of the SEC. Yet, look at Auburn the last few years. They were pretty much a nobody, but now look at them. All we do is make a regional and lose out. I long for the Trinity Johnson years.

And your point is what , exactly ? That if you hire a coach with an incredible resume then the top players in the country will want to come and play for them . That's usually true , but finding a coach with the resume of Auburn coach Clint Meyers is not that easy . Meyers won a national championship in junior college baseball , won six straight national championships in junior college softball , and then at Arizona State (his alma mater) won two national championships in division one softball .

Some unique factors figured into his leaving Arizona State for Auburn . He wanted to hire his son as pitching coach , but the nepotism laws in Arizona prevented him from doing so . He also had family members already living in Alabama , and was intrigued by the growth of the sport in the SEC . It all worked out great for Auburn softball , and for Meyers . His two sons are currently on his staff at Auburn .

Florida takes game three 10-0 . Thank goodness that's over . I don't know if Florida is the #1 team in the country or not , but we certainly made them look like they were .

They're that good. They've been the best team in the country the past three seasons, last years shocking loss early in the tournament aside, they were the best team but just had a poor series.

Nobody recruits like Walton. Barnhill and Lorenz were the #1 and #2 recruits in the country two seasons ago and are already the two best players on the team. They'll probably win the title again this season barring something unforeseen like last year happening. They're simply more talented than their opposition.

Funny enough, their only loss came to a terrible Maryland team that was winless entering their contest against UF.

It just seems like a repeat over and over under Bev. We do pretty well in our non conference games and then compete alright with the lower SEC teams but just can't compete with the upper tier conference teams. I think she may have taken us as far as she can. I am happy to be a NCAA team every year but if it means just losing in some Florida regional every year and then repeating the entire thing over then it might be time for a change.

Be careful what you wish for . If you're going to fire a coach who is making the NCAA tournament every year , you better be damn sure you have a coach in mind who can do a better job (and be willing to pay them) .

Case in point - the USC volleyball program . When Kim Hudson resigned there were lots of people who thought it shouldn't be that hard to bring in someone who could do what she had been doing . Make the NCAA tournament most years , lose in the first or second round , finish second in the league to Florida . Now here we are 13 years and three coaches later and we haven't made the NCAA tournament since Hudson left . Most years we aren't even on the bubble . Things don't always get better when you change coaches . Sometimes they get worse .

I thought championship winning coaches just fell into place, which is why we need to fire Holbrook, Muschamp, Martin, Staley, Berson and everyone named Smith in short and consecutive order

I know exactly what you mean. It just feels like after all of the money invested into the facilities we should be recruiting better and doing better overall. I am happy with where we are now with making the NCAA's every year but I just feel like there is so much more potential. Clemson getting a softball program isn't going to help anything either.

USC faces Gardner-Webb Tuesday at 4pm at Beckham Field . Admission is free since this game was added to make up for the game with Indiana that wasn't played .
G-W is 7-17 on the season , so hopefully we can play well and regain a little confidence after the Florida debacle . Next conference series is with Alabama in Tuscaloosa .

USC over Gardner-Webb 9-4 . USC hit three home runs , and after a shaky start from freshman Cayla Drotar the pitching settled down and held G-W scoreless for the last 5 innings . Hayley Copeland got her first career win , pitching three shutout innings in her first appearance of the season . Copeland had something like 33 strikes out of 55 pitches and it was easily the best I've ever seen her pitch .
USC faces #9 Alabama in Tuscaloosa this weeken .

Alabama takes game one 7-3 . USC got home runs by Snaer & Boesel , but a collision between the leftfielder and shortstop led to 4 unearned runs by Bama in the second inning . Jake Elliott took the loss for USC , with Cayla Drotar pitching 3.2 scoreless inning in relief .
Due to the weather forecast for Saturday , the teams will now play a doubleheader on Sunday .

Gamecocks win game 1 of the doubleheader 14-0. Where did that come from?
