OOF, there it is. Just can't leave 10+ on base when you are playing these type of teams. We're good enough to advance but this sucks.

I guess we should have left Dudan in.

Well fahhhk. Should have won it in the 9th with smith slamming the door against the bottom of their lineup - and they made use pay in the 10th

Threw his best pitch. Unfortunately, we now need Smith to throw pitch No. 30.

And you lose.

Elliot going to be laying in bed tonight wondering why he didn't bring smith in to start the ninth. That loss hurts

Sadly, Ethan was onto something with Smith and Dudan on the preview pod….

Disgusting not to bring your closer in to close

Smith got 5 outs before he gave up a run. That works for a closer 99% of the time

Smith's stuff right now falls off fast. You don't want him at 25+ pitches man. That's why you roll with him bases empty to start 9th.

That's a failure as a staff IMO. It's okay to say that.

UK is obnoxious. I hope they get curb stomped next game. Regardless if we win, I want them and obviously the holes to go home.

Have we ever lost a game where we just lost and it wasn't the coach's fault? It gets really ****ing old.
Just a guy on the sunshine squad.

This field is so evenly match you wouldve had to win a game (or two) like this to take it all home but the other problem is the bats outside the big 3 did nothing that game. And if Soles is out it gets even worse

The staff didn't leave we 12 or whatever on base...

Gotta win 4 games in a row now? Surely it's been done but I assume the majority who make title game win their first game.

players make the plays but coaches did not put the guys in a position to succeed

They will get even more obnoxious now, because we kind of gave it to them. To the victor goes the spoils.

Yeah it just doesnt matter that you dont let your closer close or realize that relievers are relieving for a reason

Or the other team made two really good swings against two of your best guys.

They're number two in the country for a reason. We could be talking about scoring more than 4 also.

Sometimes it is the coach's fault, pretty indefensible decision in the 9th inning with the lead

Of course. We've also won a lot of games because of great coaching moves.

This is baseball. The coach has more decisions to make than in any other sport. It's okay to question them some. They are big boys.

I've said it before, Avent has too late of a hook on his pitchers. Been watching it for 20 years. Love the guy, but this seems to be his Achilles heel.

Believe i saw its only been done 4 times. LSU did it last year. Isnt florida and A&m bith holding their ace pitcher too?

Edit: based on a below post i guess i made this up

Totally agree. I am still stunned he did not come in the bottom of the ninth. Falls squarely on Avent and Chrysler.

Yes but I'm sure if EA had it to do over again he brings in smith to start the 9th. Just a dumb move and I'm sure he will own it postgame.

Even if you put a starter in the pen he's going to come in firing at 120% and add a couple MPH ticks that first inning..of course, theres a reason he doesnt throw like that when he starts. It doesnt last

Per NCAA:

"Twelve teams in Men's College World Series history have gone on to win the national championship after dropping their first game in Omaha. The most recent example came in 2018, when Oregon State won six straight games to claim the title.

The group of 12 to escape the losers' bracket after Game 1 account for less than 17 percent of national champions.

In 2019, two first-round losers, Louisville and Texas Tech, advanced to the national semifinals before bowing out."

Well when you're bunting early and often it's hard to talk about scoring more than 4. You're playing for low-scoring with that mentality.
