Deke Bellavia: Tigers set for another big SEC series

The 3rd ranked LSU Tigers are gearing up for another big Southeastern Conference series when the Florida Gators come to town.  Florida has been hot, winning their last three series.  The Gators are 25-20 overall and 12-9 in SEC play.  Florida swept South Carolina earlier this season.

Coach Paul Mainieri visited with Bobby Hebert and me on SportsTalk to talk about this hot SEC matchup. “They are a hot team right now and Florida always has great players,” Mainieri said.  Florida was 11-16 at the end of March before posting a 14-4 record during the month of April.

Coach Mainieri announced his pitching rotation.  He’ll send Cody Glenn to the mound for LSU Thursday night.  Aaron Nola will pitch Friday.  Ryan Eades will start for the Tigers in the series finale Saturday.  You can listen to all the Tigers versus Gators games on WWL Radio (the BIG 870AM or 105.3 WWL-FM). 

The Tigers lost their first SEC series of the season last weekend dropping two of three games to the South Carolina Gamecocks.  “We have a lot to be proud of.  It’s hard to win all of your series.  We were able to bounce back with a nice win over McNeese to win our 40th game of the season.”

Ravens hire Spags for job well done.
Why hire Spags? Worst defense in NFL history. He made no changes in scheme or game time adjustments. Maybe, Spags, did exactly what he was instructed to do, albeit, from a different boss. I believe SP would have fired him during the season, if a higher agenda was Spags, purpose. When a team finishes last in defense, it is easy to overlook that the team had no real head coach and was being punitively harmed on all levels. As Shakespeare wrote, "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, ....". Spags, obviously, is not that bad a coach. The Ravens just won a Super Bowl and just hired Spags. It does appear to be for a job well done. Good luck, Spags. As Shakespeare, also, wrote, "Et tu, Brute?" or maybe better said, "Et tu, Spags?”.
