Is it? Where in the heck are all the baseball fans? Even Kendall's last board has a grand total 5 threads NOT older than 24 hours. I know it is only 2 weeks into the season, but my gosh.....

I looked at last posting on each thread and I had to go back to the 19th before finding another conferences post and THAT was Walt! Had to go another 2 days back to the next OOC post. Did all the other conference posters die?

COME ON BASEBALL FANS!!!!!! LET'S SEE SOME SUPPORT FOR PG.......EVEN IF YOUR TEAM/CONFERENCE SUCK!!!!

Yeah. Been pretty dismal here of late. Do we still have like six beavers, 1 duck, and a few asu fans? You could probably make a few jokes from that crowd.

That's funny. Maybe picking on another conference for bottom of the barrel awards could bring out some "voices".

Is the ballot thing done with? I looked forward each week in the basement. Good wholesome fun. We should pick a conference and do it for that one. Then whoever is crowned can be named "lucky bastard"

I'll post random things about whoever beats Florida. The now 6-3 North Florida Ospreys beat the gators in 10. Gave up 12 hits and had 3 errors but held UF to 6 runs. The Ospreys picked up 4 extra base hits, including a triple dinger by .257 batter Drew Weeks. The Ospreys play in the North Florida tourney this weekend against a 3-5 Jacksonville State and a 4-3 Charleston Southern. Hard to say how they will do as beating Florida this year is slightly easier than beating Corvallis' Mountain View baseball team (my alma mater when I first started school).

South Carolina/SEC/College Baseball fan here. Just don't get into to many conversations. Love the smell of grass and dirt. Love the sound of BBCOR and leather. Never go home with a clean uni!

I'm here!! I don't really post much but I lurk around daily. I often read some of the Pac 12 discussions b/c theres not much of other conference chat. I haven't seen any other posters other than the Beavers and ducks mostly.

Last year seemed way more active than this year. Maybe it is because we are only 2 weeks in. Hopefully it picks up.

How many SEC or just southern baseball fans on here?

Hog fan here, I don't post a lot. Usually I get on and see all Pac12 stuff and just leave. I enjoy Kendall's stuff though. You won't see any smack talking from me, I just try and get college baseball news wherever I can.

Excited for the weekend games in Arizona this weekend for the Hogs!

When this board first started it was flooded with southern Miss fans. They got mad at me for saying I believed their team was overrated that year. I think they may have lost in their regional that year. I chuckled.

There is so much Pac-12 stuff because no one else posts. I'd love to chat in a Big12, SEC, ACC, CUSA...etc thread. I love the game and always like learning about other teams and other players. Unfortunately we really only get to discuss PAC12 in these threads because other teams and conferences don't post to start discussions.

And yeah it's stupid when a stupid bandwagon fan jumps on board because their team is having a good year, don't let the petty fans get to you.

Behind an impressive start from Chris Diaz and a game-winning single from David Thompson, No. 20 Miami continued its perfect season Friday night, taking the series opener with in-state rival Florida by a final score of 3-2.

Diaz, who entered the opener sporting a 0.75 ERA, delivered another strong start on a chilly night at McKethan Stadium. The Florida City, Fla., native went a career-high seven shutout innings, scattering eight hits while working his way out of tough jams. He battled his way to a career-high 101 pitches, 67 of which went for strikes.

After Florida tied the game at 2-2 in the eighth inning, a clutch two-out single from Thompson led Miami to its tenth straight victory to open the season. With the win, Miami snapped an 11-game losing streak to the Gators, a stretch that dated back to the March 2010 regular season series in Coral Gables. The Hurricanes, one of four undefeated teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference, are now 10-0 for the first time since 1981.

“I thought [Jay] Carmichael was throwing the ball well and whether or not we were going to go to Mags [Johnny Magliozzi] there, but I wanted to see if we could get a lead,” head coach Kevin O’Sullivan said. “There wasn’t a point in time where I thought he [Carmichael] was in trouble. I thought we played really good defense tonight. Once again, we need a big hit and we haven’t been able to get one. There are three things that stick out in my mind throughout the course of the game: bases loaded in the first, we had a 2-0 count, we take [the pitch] and we don’t swing when we’ve been dying to get a hit – we don’t cut the barrel loose. Next thing you know, it’s 2-2 and we fly out to right. He’s [Chris Diaz] not going to walk you there; he’s a Friday night starter for a reason.”

Florida continues their downward spiral. After two years of relying on pitching arms and defense, the lack of maintaining an offense to balance the board is coming home to roost. At this point, UF's grace for a potential post season is 3 of the other 6 SEC eastern division teams are at .333 or under. So if the Gators can make sweeps against UGA, UT and Mizzou and manage to get 13 other wins in through the season, they may make a 25 wins season entrance to a regional somewhere.

Wouldn't it be nice to have UF play in a Corvallis Regional?
