Both games at UNF so maybe both on same media?

According to their web sites, no. I would say, UNF has it's own streaming and wants you to pay to stream, where as JU is allowing theirs to go out through espn+

I provided the links to both schools sites that have a link to each game. Find our game, hit the TV or Watch icon.

Actually Seminoles.com is now providing the links also. One is for UNF streaming the JU game is through espn+

Ladies in town starting tomorrow, unfortunately we're already committed to a long weekend on the eastern shore with family. Virginia's program is light years better than what was when we moved here and this year very competitive, although some head scratching losses to smaller schools. Biggest wins were taking 2 of 3 against the Irish at home. They also swept the the Pack and the Eagles. We've watched a couple games at their new digs, very nice.

If they are flying the softball team to Charlottesville, I'd have a hard time with the notion that the soccer team wasn't being supported by the athletic department.

That whole deal is still so weird. And sad.

As @T_Lang said on Cameron's show yesterday (or the day before), they better leave Lonnie alone...LOL.

After our Coach K announced his resignation someone tweeted, "Quick, put a bubble over Lonni!"

So true! I'm still in shock about Coach K. If Lonni went,...can't even think about it!

The next four will be challenging.

The gators kicked the crap out of the Noles during a fall game but it was just practice man. Weather does not look great in Gainesville on Wednesday so there is that.

Last season VT took two of three from the Noles, the last two finished with 15 runs for the Hokies and 1 for FSU. Tech plays at UCF tonight riding a 16-game winning streak.

But still FSU goes into it as the hunter.

Plus it's at the plex (VT Series anyhow) and you know Lonnie will have them prepared.

So is Coacha sending a message to Kerr? Fourteenth in on base percentage kind of says you are just swinging at anything, and so does the eye test. Maybe just pinch hit her some until she stops chasing balls out of the zone. I think Ross could be a good center fielder, fast, good arm, and knows a ball from a strike.

Think we come in very prepared. We looked a little more focused this past weekend, but also stranded way more runners than I like.

VT's strength is their pitcher with all her K's. We do not strike out a ton.

Which brings me to Kerr. Yes think a very loud and clear message is being sent to her. More it was her reactions after her AB's that had me thinking a change was coming. Coacha preaches that you do not let your emotions show and Kerr looked very frustrated after her bats on Saturday.

what happened woth Kerr? I must have missed it. I lnow her batting average has nosed dived because she has no patience and swings at anything.

I said at the beginning the season that whomever could start to hit would play -- We have options everywhere and the best hitters and OBP players will start. Kerr just seems off. She takes really good pitches and swings at pitches often not close to the zone. The best hitters on this team swing at strikes. She can be replaced defensively so we have options until she can figure it out.

Two very good pitchers and as a staff under a 1.35 ERA. Both starters have over 125 K's for the season.

In contrast, we have a team 1.28 ERA with both starters right around 100 K's.

As a team, they field at .972 whereas we are #1 in the country with a .987. Put the ball in play and stress the defense, could be the difference in the 3 games.

I'll say we take the series but lose game 2.

Kat vs. Rochard for the 1-0 win.
Lemley vs. Watson as the L (thinking 2-1)
Rubber Match is combo win for Kat/Watson/Mack/Enter (some version of) vs. Rochard/Lemley/their closer or 3rd in rotation (win 3-2)

Next 4 games could decide our season - win 3 of 4 and we will get a Super.

Unfortunate that Duke and VT don't play this season. Would be nice when they make schedules is to make sure the projected top 5 teams all play each other.

Two of VT's losses have been to Bama, close low scoring games, so it will be the team that get a timely hit, makes a bad pitch that is hammered, or makes the untimely error. Can only hope the umpires are all consistent and have similar strike zones, not one tight, one wide, one high but not low. Hard to do but call the game like the rule book, not you own definition of a strike zone or stepping out of the box.

Nope, Edenfields center field shot that cleared the trees. Not sure which team it was.

I wonder how much more Leonard would have pitched if Keen had been available for 1st base duties without having to use Harding out of the outfield. Not many innings yet but she has 13 innings, 11K and 0.0 era. FSU might have three really good pitchers afterall. And developing Enter and Wilson for next season.

We shall see.

Thing about Edenfield is she goes to all different locations and hits them out.

Maybe most impressive for the hitter could be Mudges HR early in season, or when Mudge unleashes one (LOL).
