Lucky or Good?

By now you are probably very aware that South Carolina swept Tennessee over the weekend, and you are probably also aware that on Saturday Carolina won two games with walk-off home runs.

Kentucky Blues

It's trite to say that it is not easy to win on the road in the SEC.  It's trite because it's true.  Even when you're playing in a place like Lexington, which doesn't have the rabid fans that exist in Baton Rouge or Starkville, it's hard. Friday night's disaster was followed by a close loss […]
