I would gladly trade this for a couple of wins over College of Charleston this past weekend.

Those "couple of wins" to which you refer would do very little for us in grand scheme of things this year. We'd need a lot of those "couple of wins" to amount to anything. Me being able to walk up to my Shamecock friends and let them hear all about Winner Winner Chicken Dinner for the short-haired dogs gives me a little bragging ability.

Not to be dramatic, but this was perhaps the biggest win in Wofford Baseball history, outside of the SoCon championship a few years ago. We did beat Carolina a few years ago when they were ranked, but we beat them at home.

To beat the #6 ranked team in the country, two time defending national champions, at their new Taj Mahal stadium with a team that only has 4 scholarships is nothing short of amazing.

The game was on Fox Sports South also, which was awesome.

Eck was dealing last night, and Mac Doyle is a MAN. Diamaduros had a huge clutch hit in the 11th.

To be fair, we beat a team that played the night before, and has a three game set against #1 Florida this weekend. We caught them looking ahead, and it feels great!!!!!

Now, hopefully we can get some confidence from this and beat the teams we are supposed to.

Great win for the Terriers. Just goes to show how baseball is the strangest/greatest game ever.

BossTerrier, in 2009 we beat Carolina 16-8 in their new stadium. Granted they weren't defending Nat' Champs, but that was a huge win for the team and program.

Boss -- I am not sure who it is we are supposed beat. Davy maybe? Seems everyone has more schollies than we do, even Big South teams. I hope we can take this win and build on the confidence it provides.

We just beat the #6 team in the nation with fewer schollies. Sure, more funding means more depth and talent and consistentcy, but with the team we have we are beating SEC and Big East teams. We are more than capable of a .500 record in the SoCon with what we ave now.

There are too many excuses, and not enough accountability.

To start, we should win 2 of 3 at home vs. Sanford.

In no way does us beating the #6 team in the nation mean that we should be .500 in the SoCon... we've beaten USC 3 times in the last 6 or 7 years and we've never came close to .500 in the SoCon. We are in fact not capable of being .500 in the SoCon and we won't be for a long time. The problem is not excuses and accountability, the problem is specifically "depth and talent and consistency". Depth, talent, and consistency win SoCon series... which are what matters. We will fight and scratch out the few games that we can but we are fighting an uphill battle. Beat Samford? I hope. But Samford, as well as C of C and others, are not only well funded but have shown a substantial commitment to baseball. Samford and C of C are also very successful with JuCo players. This puts us at a severe disadvantage. Be optimistic, but eventually we need to be realistic...
