Behind the scenes of UK baseball

(Chet White/UK Athletics)

Kentucky begins its final weekend series today at Mississippi State, and the SEC Title is on the line. For you baseball fans (and I know you’re out there) check out this behind-the-scenes look at the program, shot by the NCAA.com crew who were in town before the Florida series earlier this month. It gives great insight to how a team that finished 11th in the SEC a season ago has turned it around, and looks poised to make a run for Omaha.

I like this quote by sophomore pitcher Corey Littrell, “Some people say that we’re dirt bags and that they don’t like us, but that’s just who we are.”

    why do people think they’re dirt bags? Does basketball jealousy spew into baseball or is there another reason?

    How can you say this team is capable of reaching Omaha? Yes they have had a great season, but what about their terrible losses to so-so teams. Louisville destroyed this team in two game that were not even close! They have had stretches that they cannot buy a run! They played great in the first part of the season, but now there are many poor games. I will grant you that this is a good, maybe great team! I am not confident that the can win it all. We will soon see what this team is really made of.

    #4 this team has 1….and only 1 bad loss. Murray St. They own series wins over LSU, SC, ARK and Ole Miss plus others. The louisville losses are both mid week games-different pitching rotation and louisville isn’t bad. This team has beaten some of the top teams in the country and doesn’t have losses to so so teams. Completely untrue statement.

    #6 – the Murray loss is bad until you realize Murray threw their weekend starters, though for an inning a piece I believe and UK did not. Murray was playing to win that game, UK did not look at it as a big game like Murray did.

    4 – Baseball teams lose games. It’s a long season. This team has won far more games than it’s lost; I’m not sure how you can look at just the few losses (to good teams, no less) and ignore the massive success they’ve had against elite teams. I’m not saying this team is destined for Omaha, but they’re as capible of winning it as anyone.

    They are capable of making a run, but being a former collegiate player, I can tell you that baseball is a different animal. Its a game of stepping up and getting hot at the perfect time. Thats a two way street unfortunately the other teams can as well. When a team like UK gets hot/cold it can spell trouble quickly.
