The Gators coming off a loss at home to Mercer University will be plenty fired up to get back in the win column. On the road to begin a series against long time rival Miami starting today at 2pm. The Gators will bring their powerfull offense and have their best pitcher Bryan Ball on the hill today.
- Miami Herald : "I probably shouldn't say this, but it's true,'' UM's baseball coach said. ``We can't let anybody come into our house and win. That's the way it's always been at Miami, always.'' Sure, that's the way it usually has been at UM, where the Hurricanes have built one of the top baseball programs in the nation. But this is different. This time the Florida Gators come into Mark Light Field as the favorite -- the overwhelming favorite."
