What is so wrong in just players or fans saying "damn you was better than me today"? Tomorrow may be different. Van Horn has a hell of a pitching staff, tonight, it was on. Y'all do realize that other schools recruit too? Right?

Arkansas was the much the better team. End of story.

Again let me say a bad weekend does not define a team! You say you know baseball? You most certainly do not act like it.

Then he's gonna do the exact same thing with his team he did while we were going 25-5.

That's the point homie...you can't swing 25-5 in any way that points out there's a problem. Baseball is a big picture kind of sport. There's not one team in the country that has a problem with that record.

I understand you are upset about this weekend. I am too! Lost sleep last night because of the errors, but I will never discount this team! I have been a Gamecock all of my 50 years in my life. My Grandfather graduated in 1931 from USC. My Dad and Sister went there. I graduated from there in 1994. I have been heartbroken so many times by beloved Gamecocks but I never gave up on them. If you need to vent talk to your mirror.

Another game, another frustrating display of plate approach. This offense is going to have to get better.

Fully agree.
Our players need to adjust their plate approach.
Maybe Chad should be a little more hands on with his plate calls, or maybe they focus on just making contact and not pressing at practice.

Whatever it is, I have faith Holbrook will be giving our team an earful in private on the long trip home.

This might sound odd, but if you gave me a choice between: 1) series win, with JoMo getting shelled in game 1; and 2) going 1-2 with JoMo dealing...

I'd take the second option. I'm disappointed we lost the series. The lack of offensive production is not great. That said, we needed our ace back in a big way. With Seddon and Mincey stepping up in the pen and Beal looking good in midweek games, this team has the pitching pieces to go deep.

It seems like batting comes and goes, but more importantly, teams can -- and do -- get better over the season at the plate. We can improve there. It's more difficult to coax performance out of sub-par pitching talent.

Holding on to a top-8 seed is critical, and I know that. That said, it's still early, and I'm honestly happy to see our big guy shake the slump. Crowe getting waxed today isn't really a big deal in the big picture. Get the pitching right and we have plenty of time to get the hitting in place to make some noise. Arkansas won this one fair and square, but the talent is in place for a deep, deep run.

RECENTLY our hitting has been pathetic and our starting pitching has been so-so. Our bullpen has been awesome all year and the reason we are winning low scoring games. Sometimes though you need to be able to score a bunch of runs to win.

Barring something bad, at least we haven't lost any mid week games. App State was a little too close for comfort considering their 8/16 record going into our game though.

We have lost worse games before. A little disheartening that ARK came in with the lowest batting average in the SEC and the #7 ERA though. Only managing 3 runs against #7 doesn't look too good for a supposed #1-#3 team.

You know, if it wasn't for those errors and walks in the early innings, we had a much higher chance to play harder.

What I really don't understand is why we thought changing pitchers per base hit or walk was going to solve anything. Like, they kept Crowe in long enough for the major damage to be done... right? but then they take a pitcher in Fiori out who is dominating... because he allowed one on.. and the cycle continued.

When it comes to our hitting.... I don't understand the mentality behind letting the pitcher get away with 1-3 pitches per player if that. He threw high heat.. and if we actually looked at his pitches... he would have been out of the game much sooner. With that said, he wasn't Godly. We made him look that way.

The #7 ranking was in the NCAA, not the SEC
