- do you think they should add anyone?
- if yes, who?
I think they should add 12 & 36 now. Both are pretty much universally thought of as the 2 best players in the history of the program & both are in college HOF.
I'm pretty sure currently Skip & McDonald are the only 2 officially retired nu...

why would you want to lower the odds of the team you pull for to make it into the NC picture?
you do know that is what 9 game SEC schedule or tougher OOC games does, right?
just look at last year

Having former players in MLB is nice but overrated.
The '96/'97 teams (best stretch in the history of the school) had how many true MLBers (other than guys that got a sniff)?
...& those teams include plenty of guys that played on the '98 team that was very close to winning it all again.
