|LSU's coach hates to see beer wasted like this.|
Ole Miss could become the first SEC team to reach the 30-win mark with a victory tonight. Ole Miss already has an RPI of No. 5. A series win over LSU (RPI No. 21) would only lift the Rebels higher. After winning 2 of 3 against Mississippi State over the weekend Ole Miss is projected by Perfect Game as an NCAA Regional host. The Rebels are exactly where they want to be, but with half the conference schedule remaining it's way too early to celebrate or take a break - not that motivation will be difficult with LSU in town.
Both teams are rightly pumped up for this series. Ole Miss announced yesterday that it has limited reserved seats remaining, which means a BIG crowd should be on hand.
Meanwhile, LSU is bolstering itself for a boisterous outfield and something beyond heckling around the bullpen.
“Heard they throw some pennies, rocks, things like that,” LSU reliever Jared Poché told the New Orleans Advocate. “I’m just (going to) trying to focus in, try not to worry about them.”
“We all know Ole Miss is a special place,” Nola said. “Stuff’s going to be said to us. We’ve got to let it go one ear and out the other.”
“They enjoy their libations. That’s for sure,” LSU head coach Paul Mainieri said. “I know when Ole Miss hits a home run, they throw their beer up in the air like a beer shower, which is kind of annoying, quite frankly.”
So there you go Ole Miss students....you're in LSU's head and the game HASN'T EVEN STARTED YET!
Huge weekend coming up for the Rebs.
