Ole Miss Rebels vs. TCU Horned Frogs Open(ing Day) Thread

Rcr-baseball_medium

It's openin' day, y'all! I'm not going to pretend I know much about TCU. I know they're ranked #15 and lost some pitching from last year. I know they're a good team.

More than anything, this series is a chance for us to immediately see our young, young team against a high quality opponent. The only outcome that would shock me is if we swept them. I could see us taking the series, them taking the series, or them sweeping us, but with so many unknowns, I can't imagine a scenario where we take all three.

After the jump, find the lineup, game details, and a few videos to get you excited.
