| Tiger Rant|| How long between games in the SEC Tourney? - SM6 on 5/22/14 at 2:28 pm|
How long do teams have to take the field/ warm up between games? 30 min?
I am hoping that Akry-Fla runs a little late so that I can get home in time for first pitch.
| Tiger Rant|| Who is pitching today? - SM6 on 5/17/14 at 10:14 am|
And how does it set up for the SEC tourney? Assuming we win and get 4th seed, Poche and Nola on six days rest? Kitchen sink after that?
I really hope we host a regional. Not having a 3rd starter is a bitch if we have to throw Nola in game one versus the 3 seed.
