I like the aggression, too, but it's one of those "hero or the fool" things.

Great if it works, meh, if it doesn't.

The fans know it's going to be a tough series. If you like watching a competitive game, this is the super regional you will need to watch.

I would actually like to be playing anybody else than South Carolina trying to make it to the World Series.

Yeah, but there's a big difference in being aggressive and attacking each pitch, and swinging for the fences. When you swing for the fences, usually you'll see guys flying open with their head looking at the cute girl in the 2nd row. Being aggressive and if the first pitch is your pitch, is just knowing what you're looking for and attacking it.

We were 1-3 against Arky, but Hill and Morris pitched really well against them - we just could not get anything going at the plate. Bad weather and shortened games had something to do with that - heck, we win half of our games in the 8th and 9th, and we did not play those innings in the two losses at Fayetteville.

The game at Hoover was a case of a Freshman pitcher not rising to the occasion - two early walks followed by a three run jack. But we battled back and scored some runs, so that should give our hitters confidence.

If Hill and Morris pitch well, we might not need a Freshman starter for Game Three.

We could win this, but the home field is a huge advantage that they have.

Went through the stats from the 4 match ups and here's what I found in the weeds.

Game 1 - 3-2 us, we had 12 hits to their 13 hits and we had 2 errors to their none. Their 2,3,4 batters went 7 for 15, but their 7 spot left 6 on by himself (could have been a completely different game). Our hits were much more spread out and we only left 8 guys on to their 12 men left on.

Game 2 - 3-0 them, we had 3 hits to their 4 and neither team had an error. We only had 2 guys get a hit.

Game 3 - 2-0 them, we had 1 hit to their 4, and we had an error.

And a reminder, both Game 2 and Game 3 only went 7 innings each

Now the SEC Tourney match up - 13-8 them, we each had 11 hits, but they had 5 errors to our 1. The main difference in this game was their 5 and 6 batters went 4 for 8 with 3 home runs and 8 RBI ... that won the game for them..

Another thing I noticed is game 1 Chapman started and went 4 innings with 7 hits and gave up 2 runs. Chapman also started in the SEC Tourney match up and went 1.1 innings giving up 3 hits ... but wait ... 6 runs! They also got the rest of their runs on Hunter Lomas and Parker Coyne. Both of which have the fewest amount of innings pitched this season (outside of Hinson with 5.2 and Lee with 1.1)

This Super Regional is going to come down to keep their middle of the lineup relatively contained, while getting hits with runners on. I still feel strongly that we're going to go into Fayetteville and play really good Baseball and make it an exciting Super Regional to watch. Arkansas is a really good Baseball team, but so are we.

Exactly, they started him first pitch fastball the first 4 at bats and he just reached out and poked it into right field every single time. Didn't try to do too much, but he saw what he was looking for and went out and got it.

Plus, we're playing with house money. I believe all the pressure is on Arkansas. We need to go out there, not think (it can only hurt the ballclub), not lollygag, and just have some fun.

It's a simple game. You throw the ball. You catch the ball. You hit the ball.

Interestingly, the anonymous coach who scouted us for Baseball America's preview of the Fayetteville Super Regional said, "Iím not so sure they werenít the most talented team we played other than Florida."

Although I am not sure that I buy that, I was encouraged that the coach gave credit to our talent and coaching and didn't perceive our success as just an average team getting on a hot streak at year's end (in the years we won the CWS, it always galled me that the prevailing sentiment among the anonymous coach/scouts was, "Not sure how they're here... their pitchers have average stuff and their offense is unspectacular. They must just be lucky to win 20+ straight post-season games!").

The preview is an interesting read regardless.

Check out Cack! I'm impressed! That game one with 12 left on base was huge in the out come. If I remember correctly, I think we (Arkansas) had bases loaded a couple of times with one out and did not score. And Blaine Knight left with the lead that game.

Any who, gonna be a great series. I'm heading to Disney World Saturday morning, hoping I will get there in time to watch the game. When I get back, I will brag to y'all if we win, or take my punishment if we lose.

I've told y'all this before, Casey Martin (3rd Baseman) is from my hometown of Lonoke. My youngest son graduated with him from High School and are good friends. I've known him since he was small. Good kid, good parents.

Kind of a weird assessment since so many other experts on this board continued to say that this team had zero talent and that it would be totally acceptable if we didn't make the tournament at all because Holbrook (or whatever the excuse of the day was).

I'm a Baseball guy. Played it my whole life and playing in an adult wooden bat league now. It's the one game that you can look at stats and it basically tells you everything you need to know.

Have fun with the rodents.

I think we drop the first game, win the second, and drop the third. Just a gut feeling. I know none of you wanted to hear that.

I am so glad you are not on the team or the coaching staff!

Game 2 - 3-0 them, we had 3 hits to their 4 and neither team had an error. We only had 2 guys get a hit.

Game 3 - 2-0 them, we had 1 hit to their 4, and we had an error.

And a reminder, both Game 2 and Game 3 only went 7 innings each

Now the SEC Tourney match up - 13-8 them, we each had 11 hits, but they had 5 errors to our 1. The main difference in this game was their 5 and 6 batters went 4 for 8 with 3 home runs and 8 RBI ... that won the game for them..

Another thing I noticed is game 1 Chapman started and went 4 innings with 7 hits and gave up 2 runs. Chapman also started in the SEC Tourney match up and went 1.1 innings giving up 3 hits ... but wait ... 6 runs! They also got the rest of their runs on Hunter Lomas and Parker Coyne. Both of which have the fewest amount of innings pitched this season (outside of Hinson with 5.2 and Lee with 1.1)

This Super Regional is going to come down to keep their middle of the lineup relatively contained, while getting hits with runners on. I still feel strongly that we're going to go into Fayetteville and play really good Baseball and make it an exciting Super Regional to watch. Arkansas is a really good Baseball team, but so are we.
Great analysis. Control the middle of their order and play error free baseball. Anything close will go their way. Hopefully, our hitters have figured out their pitching.

Not sure I would start Chapman again. Is that still the plan?
