I’d love to see how they’d react if Team USA beats Portugal on Sunday. Someone at Ole Miss needs to record that.
Of course the Rebels football team is going to be excited when the baseball team survives elimination in Omaha with a 2-1 win this afternoon over Texas Tech.
Ole Miss won after Colby Bortles walked with one out. Brantley Bell hit a comebacker to Cameron Smith, who tried to force out Bortles at second. But he threw high into center field, allowing Bortles to go to third.
Aaron Greenwood then pinch ran for Bortles, Dominic Moreno came on to face Gatlin and Texas Tech shifted an extra player to the left side of the infield and went with only two outfielders. Gatlin punched a 1-2 pitch over second base, Greenwood scored, and the celebration was on.
Hotty Toddy, indeed.
