Great point. Look at Stetson. I highly doubt that they have the caliber of players that we have yet look at what they did to Florida.

This teams missing a mascot, you mention clutch, lets get one, and call it Cardy(short for Cardiac Cocks)



I agree with you back in those years down 4-5 USC would've came up big in the 9th, and would've shut the other team out the rest of the time.

It just baffles the mind that every single time a PLAYER makes a mistake, they aren't held accountable by our fans.
I counted at least 5 baserunning mistakes. If that's not coaching, I don't know what is.

Small victories! Right? That's all we got to hold onto now. At least they didn't blow us out.

What's crazy is it gets to a point where you fire Holbrook guys are going to have to pull against your own team, which is sad to say the least.
You're awfully defensive about the matter. I have yet to see anyone imply that firing Holbrook midseason is a good idea. We're a "good team" that consistently makes bad errors and chokes in games. Which means we suck. Get over it.

& no one is pulling against Holbrook instead of for the gamecocks. That's just dumb.

Well said!

I think we have the potential to be a great team but game prep and game management need to improve.

All this talent I here we have, asides from the pitching staff who do we offensively that is talented. Cortez shows the most upside and LT is out best bat. Other than that I just done see it

Well we had a kid who was considered a high first round bonus baby MLB pick but he couldn't crack our high powered offensive line up.

We play in a conference where you just can't make mistakes. One night it's hitting, the next it's fielding, and even pitching let us down against UNC. At some point we have to put it all together. We need to do it fast, but it's definitely possible. If we were at the bottom of our division, I'd be more worried, but for now it's not unreasonable to believe we can still win the East.

Only because the rest of the East is having a down year as well. Florida isn't their usual dominant self and Vandy isn't as strong as they were a few years ago. The West is much stronger right now.

Oh definitely. But assuming we are capable of pulling it together, I think we have the roster to compete with anybody. We just have to stop making careless mistakes whether is fielding, base running, pitching, etc.

Easier said than done though I suppose.

I'm for a coaching shakeup BUT some of the Losses this year have to fall on players NOT playing up to potential.
