One thing, which I guess you can take as a positive or a negative, is that in each of the 3 SEC series we've lost, if you add up total runs we've come out ahead, meaning the one game we win is by a bigger differential than the two losses combined :shrug:

According to TJ's post game presser, it seems like the team pushed the buttons.

Loudest I've heard the dugout all year.

This is what we've come to. Simply happy that we didn't get swept.

We watched Florida score 5 runs in the 9th to take game 1 against Vandy 10-6.
They won 20-8 in game 3 to take the series. They would be getting hot now :-(

Would you be happier if we did get swept?

Who knows what kind of an impact that game will have on the team? We could look back on this as a turning point, but instead, some of you would rather find all of the negative things to talk about.

Yes, the season has been a struggle up to this point. That doesn't mean it is impossible to get it together moving forward.

They are hot right now, but have the same SEC record as Gamecocks, which means they have struggled a little this season,too. Jump on them quick and our starters will be able to breathe a little. Thursday-Saturday series

I just think most on here aren't naive anymore. One win might be a springboard but we've been shown this year that we are just as capable of disappointing again. People on here were optimistic after beating Vandy in game 3 then we lost 3 of our next 4 again. Our backs are officially against the wall and we need a series win this weekend. Will I be surprised if they come out flat again though? No, they've done it all year.

It it is. I would feel worse if we got swept, but the team isn't really giving us much choice. one or zero wins a series.

We have enough talent to win if they put their minds to it. With 5 conference
series left, we have to win 8 of the 15 games in order to have a winning
conference record. We can do it but can ill afford some of the unforced errors
we've seen lately. We do have a good RPI but still need the wins if we want
to play in, much less host, a regional. The decision to not have TJ come in for
the 9th or at minimum, put Bowers in before the bases were loaded with 0 outs
on Saturday dumbfounded all around us. You hold them in the 9th, score the 2
run homer by Cortes and win. Yesterday, we didn't need him since we had a 5
run lead. Read that he'd have put TJ in if we'd scored in the 8th on Saturday.
I know we've had offensive strugges but put the team in position to win for heaven's
sake!

That's fine, but everybody on here is just assuming the worst will happen.

Clearly, we are capable of winning against some pretty good teams too. Yes, we've lost a few that we could/should have won, but sometimes that's just baseball. I just wish everybody was willing to discuss the positive things instead of (what seems like) rooting against the team to support their own argument that CH is a bad coach.

If at the end of the year, no progress is made or we regress, then let's have a discussion. To have that conversation right now is premature and a waste of time.

I don't think anybody is saying the "bar" is going 1-2 every weekend.

Yeah, 1-2 isn't ideal, but you can't even allow yourself to be happy about a good win because you have to keep up the argument that CH is a terrible coach.

So then what was so bad about yesterday's win? It was a complete performance from the team.

I'm not guaranteeing we win out or anything crazy like that. For all I know, nothing could change. However, instead of focusing on the fact that we showed that we can beat anybody in the country if we can pull it together, you are whining about the fact that we haven't performed at the level we all thought we would.

Every team has their ups and downs in a season, if yesterday's win helps us move from the downs to the ups, then we are in good shape.

At this point, how anybody could talk about this season as a complete failure and that we should be firing Holbrook is completely incomprehensible to me.

No, I have yet to see anyone happy that we went 1-3 last week.

I think we may be a tad relieved that we didn't go 0-4, however.
