Reggie Fish was epic, but that was "only" the Sugar Bowl (I quote only because while Sugar Bowl appearances are extra-special for Arkansas, it was indeed only a Sugar Bowl). Stoerner at least was in Knoxville with both teams at 8-0, so it would have put them in the top 5 or 3 but they lost anyway at Mississippi St the following week. But this is the championship game. I know it's college baseball but put into context it has to be their most epic blunder. And that's saying a lot.

I just saw the 9th inning. That was the piggiest way of all way pig ways to lose. Brutal for those kids.

That's the toughest part. Are they going to be able to come back from the most devastating loss any of them have ever been a part of? It would take me years to be able to sleep again if I was one of those three kids, but they have to turn around and play one more game. As a sports fan I'm super-excited for a winner-take-all; as a Hog fan, well, you know...

OSU won the national title, but an absolutely ridiculous decision by their coach. Freshmen Kevin Abel threw 25 pitches last night then came back today and threw a 129 pitch complete game tonight. That is so over the top reckless.
