Georgia at Ole Miss

Oxford looks dry on the radar as of this post. The forecast calls for the possibility of pop-up thunder showers. That may be workable for baseball this evening depending on where they pop up.

The Rebels have been strong offensively this season. Sikes Orvis predicts the offense will be strong to the finish and not tail off in these last six regular season games — or beyond.

Georgia has a team ERA of 4.12 which ranks 13th in the league, slightly ahead of Kentucky’s 4.15. Here’s the catch. Kentucky has been no better against the league, but Georgia really has. The Bulldogs have a team ERA of 3.60 in conference play. That’s eighth, right behind Florida’s SEC ERA of 3.59.

The larger problem for the Bulldogs in conference play has been that they’ve hit league pitching at only a .231 clip compared to .290 for Florida, and .299 for Ole Miss, which leads the league.

    This has nothing to do with sports, Jacko!! You’ve barked up the wrong tree. I’ve seen things you can’t imagine in your feeble mind. You’re guilty of impersonating a humanoid. You ever hear of a Laotian necklace? I never wore one, but knew guys that did.

    76 picks and still no Moncrieff? Last season cost him. Can’t just take the year off and expect it not to hurt m

  • Nigel Gruff

    Free Moncrieff!!!!

    I can’t understand how Ole Miss keeps out recruiting Mississippi State and yet Mississippi State has had many more players drafted….it must be coaching.

    • a name

      Let’s see, 21 Ole Miss players active in the NFL and 17 MSU players active. Must be that funny math they teach in Starkville.

      Any more misinformation you’d like to share?

    Orgeron, Nutt and now Freeze…take 4 and 5 star recruits and coach them down to undraftable .

  • Nigel Gruff

    Tearing shirts off, making elicit texts and making false promises just gets you nowhere.

    I stand corrected there Karl…I mean anime…I really wasn’t considering scout team players. But you’re right there are 4 more black bears, if you count scout team players.

  • Nigel Gruff

    Now for our next category…between Mississippi State and the black bears, since 2009, who has had more players drafted in the first three rounds…wait for it….just read Alfords article from last week. Why it’s Mississippi State. Thank you a very much.

      I see. So it’s only based on history as defined by drivel goof. Even when you admit your wrong you really can’t admit it.

    Black bears do lead the SEC is turd burglary.

    • a name

      Why do you think the SEC is turd burglary? Because the last 2 arrested for burglary were from your udder school?
