Scott Haltom had a bit of fun on Ole Miss’s trip to South Carolina a couple weekends back. You can check out the video here, but I’ll give you a quick run down of what we learned about the Rebels from this “Flipumentary”:
1) You never want to get into an argument with DH Matt Snyder, because he’s always right. Or if you’re Anthony Ranaudo, you don’t want to pitch against him either.
2) 3B Zach Miller sleeps in a crib at home
3) XBOX Games: Lego Indiana Jones > Call of Duty
4) Freshman LHP Jordan Cooper is the lost Jonas Brother
5) Golden Corral is the unofficial sponsor of Ole Miss Baseball
(UPDATE) Part 2 can be seen HERE. It is a must watch.

We continue to bring you the lighter side of our great sport with another great rain delay video from the Western Kentucky and Florida Atlantic game over this past weekend. This is one of the better ones that I have seen in the last couple of years with some dancing and jokes played on the teams. Do you think it is better then the epic UConn-South Florida one from last year? (Click here for that one) My vote is still for the Division 3 danceoff between Lynchburg College and Christopher Newport University from two years ago. (Click here for that one).

#17 Vanderbilt dropped their second straight game to #8 Florida this afternoon, 7-3, but the bigger story concerns the health of reliever Corey Williams. Williams, a Redshirt Freshman who is 1-0 on the season in 12 relief appearances with a 2.65 ERA over 17 innings, took a line drive off the bat of Florida’s Austin Maddox in the bottom of the 7th. Williams reportedly was able to make the play on the ball, but was subsequently carted off.
I was alerted to this story from Vanderbilt Pitcher Sonny Gray’s twitter update that read:
"Tough loss but even tougher seeing a teammate go down.. Please pray for Corey Williams." – @SonnyGray2
Vanderbilt moves to 23-6 (4-4) on the season, while Florida improves to 20-6 (6-2).

Pat Borzi of the New York Times has a great article on Ron Petrich. He is in charge of scheduling all the college baseball games at the Metrodome from February through April. The dome hosts many Division 2 and 3 games around the clock while serving as the home for the Minnesota baseball and softball programs during the early part of the season. Petrich said he was able to accommodate a record of 240 college games this season while setting up a total of 420 games. You can read the full article by clicking here.
The other interesting thing about the dome is the ability to roller skate on the concourse for $6.50. Has any of our readers ever done that?
