Does anybody have any thoughts on it?
On paper, it's a much easier draw than we had in 2014 when we won the Tallahassee Regional. However, we don't have nearly the same level of starting pitching nor pitching depth that we had that year. Our lineup has more pop 1-9, but I'd still take our 1-4 from 2014 over this year. Probably a tall task to win more than one game this time around.
What we might benefit from is LSU knowing that USM will have an easy time with Army, so they might want to save their best pitchers for game #2. If they throw their #2 against us, we'll likely have a hard time based on the stats I'm seeing. But if they go lower than that, I think we can pound them out.
No matter what, it's nice to see the Owls back in the NCAA tournament.
