Saturday Game Thread: vs. LSU

After being slugged to death two games in a row, we now need to win to finish .500 in SEC play.

We’re not hosting. Not anymore. Get that out of your heads. What we need now is anger. What we need now is to be furious. Furious that we just got our teeth kicked in twice in a row by a team completely bereft of starting pitching. Furious that we’re now below .500 in conference play. Furious that we blew a golden opportunity.

Furious.

Because if we’re not, it doesn’t even matter where we’re seeded, or who we’re playing, as we’ll just lay down.

Let’s see that anger today.

Please and thank you.

[Their 3rd starter on Sunday against Ole Piss did not even record an out before being pulled, so yeah, LSU basically has one starter, and then it’s Johnny Wholestaff for the rest of the series.]
