Cohen outdoes Bianco once again

The worst team in the SEC with the worst pitching staff in the SEC with the worst fielding percentage in the SEC came to Oxford for a three day stint.  Guess whom they beat?  The best pitching team in the SEC with the second best fielding percentage in the SEC.  Figures.

 

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an "editorial" on the Cup for which I was blasted. I criticized Bianco for his lack of ability to win the "big game" and take the SEC race by the throat and run with it.  We took steps in the right direction, but we took ourselves completely out of the national seed race with the pitiful performance this weekend.

The first two games of the series, we looked like we didn't even want to be on the field.  We made poor fielding decisions, bad throws, and had bad at bats.  On the other hand, MS State pitched and hit like an SEC power. 

On Sunday, the teams' true colors showed through as Ole Miss pitched well behind Irwin's gem and finally hit the ball once again. 

The weekend dropped Ole Miss to 37-15 (17-10 SEC).  With Alabama's sweep, we are now third in the West and fourth overall in the SEC if the SEC tourney in Hoover were held today. 

Cohen has now won 4 straight series against Bianco as the Cohen lead Wildcats swept Ole Miss in 2006, took 2 of 3 in Oxford in 2007, and took 2 of 3 in Lexington in 2008.  I hope this trend does not continue. 

The Rebels return to action in Fayettville on Thursday for a three game stint.  The word on the street is that Bittle will be back for that series.  Let's pray that that is the case.
