Podcast Rebellion 1.61: Ole Miss baseball opening weekend preview

New, 115 comments

Borkberry welcome in smeargle and long-time Cupper One Man To Beat to talk about Stefan Moody's swan song and preview this weekend's opening day festivities at Swayze Field.

Well, Tuesday's performance was not pretty. So the fellas don't discuss it for too long. The injuries and inconsistent play of the newcomers have made this season a roller coaster affair for Andy Kennedy and Co. But, as for the weekend, all attention turns to Oxford-University Stadium for opening weekend for baseball.

Despite an early exit in the Los Angeles Regional last year, there is a lot of optimism and buzz around the program heading into the weekend series against Florida international. With the entire starting lineup consisting of returning players and Brady Bramlett on the mound Friday, most of the buzz is warranted. And the 2015 signing class brought in a TON of new arms to help out the pitching staff.

The questions will need to be answered quickly as Ole Miss entertains No. 2 Louisville next weekend and get legit tests in conference play early on as well. Mike Bianco's squad will need to solve their issues pitching on Sunday and replacing Sikes Orvis in the middle of the lineup to make a splash in the SEC. The fellas will dive into these questions and many more on this week's episode.
