Live blog, Georgia Tech-Florida

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Georgia Tech will attempt to extend its season once again, this time in a rematch with No. 1 seed Florida at McKethan Stadium.

Some concerns for Tech:

1. How much does Jake Davies have in the tank? He’ll take the mound for the Jackets and will be sure to have just about the entire McKethan Stadium crowd on his back from the first pitch.

2. Can the Jackets get some runners on and some timely hits? Tech only put one leadoff runner on Saturday night and left 10 runners on base.

3. How much will the team in general have? It’s the Jackets’ third game in 24 hours, and they got about a 90 minutes back at the team hotel before returning to the stadium. Certainly, they’re college kids and they should be able to play two games in a day, but the problem is the team they’re playing isn’t doing the same thing.

“You stand out there in the sun for three hours, it has to take something out of ‘em,” Tech coach Danny Hall said.

4. Who has the emotional edge? The game last night rubbed both teams a little raw.

5. Has Tech’s offensive binge slowed down? Tech scored eight runs in the first four innings against College of Charleston in the opener. Since then, the Jackets have scored five runs over the past 22 innings. College of Charleston pitcher Josh Renfro was pretty tough on the Jackets, who got a little lucky in scoring their three runs.

Let’s see what happens. Enjoy the game.

No hits in the 1st, but at least we got the bat on the balls. Keep doing that and we WILL get hits

Man, its at these moments that Hall get most of his criticism, and imho rightly so. Just like Bobby cox could get ya 90 wins a year, come crunch time the team folds up tent. Hall teams are NOTORIUOS for this. Shame too, this is a good group of kids.

@ 1 4 GT. Been to a lot of game this year, mostly Fridays to watch Buck pitch. Our middle infield is weak this yr….leading to some higher ERA’s for our pitchers in addition to the many errors. .

Part of the blame goes on the NCAA for making any team play 2 games in less than 3 hours from last pitch to first pitch while opposing team sits all day and is well rested. What a bunch of dummies that dreamed this format up.

Tech showing how weak the ACC is again. Tech wins ACC championship, and is getting drilled by Florida, which finished 3rd or 4th in the SEC. Thank GOD it isn’t football, or the jackets would really be getting embarrassed.

Clemson is a joke—-you’re the JOKE bubba! 1 team can’t possibly play a game that’s last pitch was less than 3 hours b/4 this one’s first pitch (especially against the #1 ranked team in the nation) against a team that has gotten to relax all day. Then you take one team with a cobbled together pitching staff (GT) and ask #24, who played the first game from start to finish to come back and be the starting pitcher in game #2. If this is the best team the coaches can put in the field, then so be it. But I would have a serious face to face with the dummies that drew up this kind of tournament. Make one team play 2 games while the other relaxes and plays 1 game. Just plain STUPID!!!!!!!!!!

I tell ya, I like the way the Fl coach goes about his business. Did u also hear they have been to Omaha 3 yrs running…….something Hall has yet to do. i know we are dinged up, but sooner or later we do need to look at Hall’s collapses every yr about this time.

Tech went 12-18 in ACC play and the Gators are loaded with talent and #1 national seed. We’re not supposed to win this game. This game is hardly an indictment of the ACC. Hall’s teams do under achieve in the postseason but I wouldn’t say that’s the case this time.
