Useful advice for an Ole Miss team that scored one run in 20 innings against Georgia State.

After splitting a mid-week series to lowly Sun Belt team, Georgia State, the Ole Miss offense is sent searching for answers. They have been absolutely abysmal at the plate after starting out 7-0 and sweeping two ranked opponents. Now, after losing a midweek contest to Memphis, they have only mustered five runs in their last 47 innings and have been held scoreless in 44 of them. Not good. At all. So what better way to bust out of a slump then by discussing hitting approaches with a former All-American?

On this week's 'cast, we're joined by former Rebel infielder and current Miami Marlins prospect Alex Yarbrough to discuss how he dealt with slumps. Alex, who knows a thing or two about making adjustments in college (career .338 hitter) lends some advice to the struggling Rebels and how he adjusted his approach when he was hitting at Swayze. We also talk about life as a professional, why he chose Ole Miss, his favorite memories and what cuisine he misses the most in Oxford. And of course, we get his take on the heated hot dog sandwich debate.

If you liked what you heard from Alex, be sure to check out all of his hot taeks on Twitter. And if you ever see him in Oxford, take him to Big Bad Breakfast for some grub. Also, don’t be rude, call ahead so he doesn’t have to wait.
