Yeah, a lot of good baseball in the ACC. I’ve had fun watching this year and seeing the consistency Clemson has shown.

Clemson is looking pretty strong this season.  Really excited to see if we can make a run.  Love the type of play Monte Lee has brought to Clemson.  I feel like we are the Ray Tanner USCjr type teams where we are never out of the game, just keep grinding and grinding and find ways to win.  Resilient, gritty teams.  Playing really good ball right now, gotta keep it going down the stretch and can’t collapse.

The UNC, FSU, and Louisville series are going to be tough ones.  FSU and UNC both on the road.

UNC swept FSU over this past weekend. Their Friday and Saturday starting pitchers are playing very well. They haven’t settled on a Sunday starter, but have a couple of good ones to pick from. I haven’t had a chance to go to CH to see them this year, and hope to before the season is over. The ACC is looking very good this year. Hopefully the season will play out good for everyone.

From the Clemson stat man Tim Bourret:

“Clemson now 7-0 away from home against SEC in football, men’s basketball and baseball this academic year.”

I just don’t know how you compete without a tv channel.

I wonder if FSU is starting to slip like Miami has…both coaches have been around a long time.

And we win the series with VT, beat them tonight to improve to 27-5 overall 12-2 in the ACC.  Going for the sweep tomorrow.  We’re playing some good ball this season.  This could be a special year.

We swept VT and move to 28-5.  I can’t wait until we play FSU, Louisville, Coastal Carolina and UNC. Those games are going to tell a lot about the ACC’s top rated programs.

The Louisville, UNC, and Clemson series between us all should be brutal.  Gonna be good.

It is, but arguably not as difficult as UNC or Louisville will be.
