Congrats to the baseball players!

If Jake Skoale doesn’t decide to sign a pro baseball contract he will have a chance to win ACC Freshman of the Year in baseball and football. He will be an exciting player to watch.

Go Jackets!

I just hope we don’t have happen to US what happened to UGA. The dawgs lost a lot of players last year and were left with nothing. We have so many great players I just hope all don’t leave at once.
