Bianco talks offense, Kentucky and more

With no mid-week games because of finals the Rebels are loud and loose at practice down below as I post this video. With six SEC games remaining an Ole Miss team that was projected fifth in the SEC West is two games out, tied for third in the division and tied for fifth in the overall. Regional host status is still on the table. More on that in Wednesday’s Daily Journal. Here’s Mike Bianco talking about the Rebels’ offense, the Kentucky series and more.

    Ole Miss Ladies Softball Team making history: From the SEC

    STARKVILLE, Miss. — No. 9 seed Ole Miss made history on Wednesday when Elantra Cox’s 2nd-inning RBI single brought home the first two SEC Tournament runs in program history.

    The Rebels continued to roll as Hailey Lunderman singled to load the bases in the 4th inning. Ashton Lampton and Sarah Van Schaik followed with a pair of RBI singles to put the Rebels up 4-0.

    In the bottom of the 4th, No. 8 seed Georgia’s Tina Iosefa hit a solo home run to put the Bulldogs on the board, re-claiming sole possession of the SEC home-run leader title with 20.

    Iosefa came to the plate again in the sixth, representing the tying run, but was hit by a Madi Osias pitch. Alyssa DiCarlo’s sac fly plated another run, bringing the Bulldogs within two. Impressive Ole Miss defense combined with base-running miscues from the Bulldogs allowed the Rebels to escape the inning only allowing the one run.

    It wasn’t all offense for the Rebels as pitcher Osias threw a complete game, allowing just two runs on five hits and striking out four.

    A one-two-three 7th inning sealed the victory for Ole Miss.

    Will Arkansas really leave the SEC, It could be an opportunity for old SEC teams to return like Tulane and Georgia Tech, The Big 12 is talking about expanding again in an effort to regenerate itself back to 12 teams. Since most major universities have found a home in one conference or another, their options are primarily schools considered respectable mid-majors in football such as Cincinnati, BYU, Houston, Memphis, UConn, etc. However, as always when this comes up, some people are talking about Arkansas leaving the SEC for the Big 12. The points are always the same. Fayetteville is much closer to a geographic fit with the Big 12 than the SEC. Arkansas has historical ties to all the Southwest Conference schools. It would probably open more recruiting opportunities in Texas. That’s pretty much it. As if that’s all …

    PA…Coach Bianco almost cost his team the sweep yesterday by starting McAthur. What did the kid do? He gave up 5 runs just like he did in the 3rd game loss at Georgia. The kid might have potential but you dont start him in any more games. These last 4 games are crucial. Beat Ark. State and try to get at least one at A&M. TAMU is so very very good. They will be playing in Omaha.
