F THE U

#7 Georgia versus #1 Miami Saturday night in the College World Series: 7 pm, Omaha, Nebraska

 

THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI HAS ONLY LOST NINE GAMES THIS SEASON, BUT THE WAY OUR BATS ARE CONNECTING NOW GEORGIA HAS A GOOD CHANCE TO BEAT THE HURRICANES IN THEIR CURRENT SPORT OF DOMINANCE. THEY ARE NUMBER ONE IN THE NATION IN BASEBALL AND WILL HAVE NO SHORTAGE OF CONFIDENCE, BUT WE ARE SCORING ELEVEN RUNS PER GAME THIS POSTSEASON AND MAY HAVE TOO MUCH OFFENSE FOR ANY TEAM AT THIS POINT. WE MATCH UP WELL WITH ANYONE. 7 PM SATURDAY NIGHT ON ESPN WE GET OUR SHOT AT THEM.

LOSE AND WE SLIP TO THE LOSER’S BRACKET, WHERE WE HAVE THRIVED. WIN AND THE PATH TO THE FINAL SERIES IS A LITTLE SHORTER. DOUBLE ELIMINATION AGAIN WITH THE FINAL TWO TEAMS LEFT STANDING, OUT OF THE EIGHT THAT MADE IT, PLAYING A BEST TWO OUT OF THREE FOR THE NATIONAL TITLE.

DAWGS WON IT ALL MY FRESHMAN YEAR AT GEORGIA (1990) AND HAVE BEEN TO THE COLLEGE WORLD SERIES THREE OTHER TIMES IN THE TWO THOUSANDS: 2001, 2004 AND 2006.

WE HAVE ESTABLISHED OURSELVES AS THE BASEBALL PROGRAM OF THE DECADE IN THE SEC…TIME FOR A MUCH BIGGER PRIZE?
