Title: Series with Ole Miss is YUUUGE
Post by: BaconTheSaddleAgain on March 24, 2019, 10:39:25 pm
Standings in the West look like this:

ARKANSAS: 5-1
A&M:          5-1
Miss State:  4-2
Auburn:      4-2
LSU:           4-2
Ole Miss:     3-3
Bama:        2-4


If we can win this series, we can essentially BURY Ole Miss. They won't be completely out of the picture, but I doubt anyone is good enough to get more than 3 games behind multiple teams in this division and claw their way back to serious contention. A&M will likely win at least 2 from Mizzou. Auburn is expected to win at least two from South Carolina. Either Mississippi State or LSU will 2 in their series...that puts Ole Miss in a bad way. Essentially out of conversation by the third weekend. Would be nice as Ole Miss was nearly a consensus top 10 preseason pick.

Other part is, we really need to win 2 to keep pace. Hope we pack the house next week.

Arkansas is about to have the toughest 12 game run in the country.

3 vs Ole Miss
3 @ Auburn
3 @ Vandy
3 vs Miss State

If Arkansas goes 6-6 in that stretch then we should consider that a win. Anything better is just icing on the cake.

I say 7-5 sweeping ole Miss going 1-2 at Auburn and Vandy then taking 2 of 3 from Miss St. At home.

I think we get 2 from Auburn. Our hitting should be better by then and Casey locked in

I have high hopes but I dont think this will happen. It would be awesome if it did but these next 4 teams are all really good.

we are not going 6-0 at home.  4-2 would be great.  just win series.

I think we can go 5-1 with a sweep against Ole Miss but 4-2 would be alright too.

I agree with Dotnet upthread.   6-6 in the next four weekends wouldn't be bad at all, and anything better is a major step toward earning a top 8 seed in the NCAAs.   We are entering a gauntlet of tough games.

With 24 conference games left, it's way too early to count anyone out of the race.  Anyone can go 0-3 on the weekend with either a pitching slump, hitting slump, or bad break from the baseball gods.  With the talent in the SEC-W the difference between 1st and last might be only 3 games unless someone completely folds.

Hey, last year's team went 14-1 at home in the conference slate.  You never know until you know.

Does the Ole Miss game really start at 8:00 pm Friday night? I think that might be a typo, because that's a little late for a baseball game.

It is in fact at 8pm so it can be televised by ESPNU.

Low of 46 Friday night, high of 50 and cloudy Saturday, high of 52 Sunday. Who needs warm weather for baseball anyway?  ::)

this is the year Vandy needed to rotate off the schedule instead of last year....oh well, they lace their up their cleats just like we do

Yup. Texas Tech was supposed to light us up when they came to town last season... That was before they met Loeske.

It will be tough on the road, but I don't think anyone will get rich betting against Arkansas this season.

All four series are gonna be brutal.  6-6 is a win and keeps us in contention for the SEC and hosting

Shore up Saturday pitching, middle infield defense, leadoff hitting and the sky is the limit. Really need Martin to get going and fish or cut bait on Saturday starting pitching. Love what the bottom of our lineup is doing at the plate.

I'm with ya. I expect  9-3, think 8-4 is probable, and would settle for 12-0. Lol

Coming out of it 7-5 is a major win.

Winning the Ole Miss series is huge.  Hogs are sitting in good shape at 5-1 and coming out of the next 4 weekend above .500 bodes very well to win the west div.  The other sec teams are going to be beating up each other.  Hogs really need lsu to beat miss st at least once. Twice would be better but probably  ain't hapnin.

Hogs 1st 2 series were thought to be with the easiest opponents so wins mean more starting tonight

At least we get to play the sucky teams first in our schedule!!!

I guess there are no sucky teams in the sec west.  aTm is sitting in as good a shape as anyone,  surprisingly.  Bama has started the conference season more potent than expected. 

On second thought, at this point the worst team in the west might be lsu.

Yep.  Vandy on the road (they might have a national championship squad) instead of USC-e which looks broken this year.

We finished these games 7-5. I dont think anyone had us doing it the way we did.

I know I didn't ... Oh me of little faith.

Really excited about where the Hogs are sitting at this point.
Take care of business; finish this thing strong. In Omaha.

Yeah, it was a very impressive stretch of baseball. I think looking back to what is said before hand (with no emotions) is healthy.

6-6 with a loss yesterday would have been really good. Winning yesterday for the sweep and to go 7-5 in that stretch really is just icing. It really does put 18-12 in view as the goal at this point... when 6 weeks I would have told you it was best case scenario.

I do think people are under estimating how good Tennessee and even Kentucky are though. They are not automatic sweeps or series wins. Just ask ole miss.

Tenn is going to be tough, will go a long way in determining if we are a top 8 seed or not. I think their RPI i sitting at 8 at the moment. Glad we get them at home for sure.
