Omaha unlikely this year — for anyone in Mississippi

From the Mother Ship, sports editor John Pitts takes a look at Mississippi’s big picture for college baseball, and a lot has to change fast at a lot of places if anyone is going to be part of the Omaha conversation.

Ole Miss is under .500 with its overall record at this point in the season for the first time under Mike Bianco. The Rebels are at No. 1 Vanderbilt this weekend.

The series begins tonight. A team looking for confidence could have used an extra practice day this week, but that’s not what the schedule allows.

Here are the pitching probables for the series:


Ole Miss Jr. LHP Christian Trent (5-2, 3.83) vs. Vanderbilt Jr. RHP Carson Fulmer (5-1, 2.25)


Ole Miss So. RHP Brady Bramlett (4-2, 2.27) vs. Vanderbilt Jr. RHP Walker Buehler (3-0, 2.76)
Ole Miss Fr. RHP Will Stokes (0-3, 5.40) vs. Vanderbilt Rfr. RHP Jordan Sheffield (3-0, 2.66)

    Sorry to hear this news, At beginning of this rebel baseball season I had high hope that they could rebuild and make a run for a return trip to Omaha, But the hitting and expected power at the plate did not quite develope as i had hope it would, the pitching not bad, so, should they be luck enough to make the SEC tournament things could change for the better, After
    this weekend with Vandy it should tell us if DIamond rebels have the “RIGHT STUFF”, Go rebels!
