Plenty of ball on today--

12pm- UL vs. TCU ACCN

2pm- Ole Miss vs. Memphis  SECN+

4pm- UNC vs. Liberty ESPN+

6pm -GA Tech vs Mercer ESPN+

7pm- TTU vs Mississippi St  SECN+

9pm- AZ ST vs UC Irvine ESPN+

Interested in the State/Texas Tech matchup. I think that is a two-game midweek series being played at the minor league park in Biloxi. State has to right the ship after dropping two out of three at Tulane over the weekend and losing ace Landon Sims potentially for the season.

Ole Miss learned yesterday it will be without star outfielder Kevin Graham for the next 4 weeks as he has surgery tomorrow on a fractured wrist. Pretty big blow, but that lineup is deep. I continue to be concerned about the starting pitching and think we could see an adjustment made as early as this weekend vs. Oral Roberts.

OMG!!! That is so cool. I love that area. We vacationed there two summers ago. Incredibly cheap area, but also pretty nice. This stadium is connected to the Bellagio Casino. Gorgeous Casino literally right on the Gulf.

The Mississippi Gulf (and the Alabama gulf too) is very underrated. Great people in that state that love their baseball.

Huge area for Minor leagues. Some darn good food too. Biloxi area is known for the charbroiled oysters, love them! 

Place called Baccus on the Beach in Pass Christian, MS. Wonderful restaurant. Very French oriented area and they are usually LSU fans. Not MSU or Ole Miss fans, in that area. Creole runs thick.

Yep, can't beat that Gulf food. Totally different world down there from North Mississippi.

I think Vandy has a kid committed from Indiana in the 22, 23, and 24 classes. 

Vandy has a significant scholarship advantage over most other schools. That's why they are able to recruit effectively nationwide. I guess the academic reputation doesn't hurt.

Why do they have that advantage? Bad for the sport.

I don't understand the specifics, really. The gist is that Vandy is essentially able to offer each player a full scholarship while most public institutions are forced to make due with dividing up 11.7 total scholarships amongst a roster of 35 players.

I found this article on the scholarship component of college baseball.

Stretching Scholarship Dollars Key To College Success (baseballamerica.com)

The lottery aspect is pretty interesting. I know Mississippi is not a lottery state while many of its neighboring SEC states do have some semblance of lottery scholarship funding. Makes life even more difficult in the SEC West.
