It’s no secret that our content strategy as a team lacks. "In three weeks, we’ll address that," I told myself every day to justify my lack of hustle.

Ole Miss

In 138.1 career innings for the Islanders, he had a 3.06 ERA, with his best year coming in 2021, when he had a 2.25 ERA, 72 strikeouts and a .186 opponent batting average in 64 innings. His addition feels somewhat similar to Arkansas’ addition of Houston transfer Lael Lockhart before last season, as both were moving up to the SEC after very successful four-year careers pitching with less than elite stuff. Lockhart sometimes found himself a bit outmanned against good SEC lineups, but he emerged as one of the most dependable arms the Razorbacks had in the end, and Ole Miss would likely be very satisfied if Gaddis followed his path.

After the conclusion of his major league baseball career, Jake Gibbs returned to Oxford to coach the Ole Miss baseball team. His first season demonstrated he was winner as a coach just as he had been as a player. But the 1972 season started slow for Gibbs and the Rebels. Going into the 10th game of the season the team was just 4-5. Ole Miss began a run once conference play began and compiled a 15-3 mark against the other teams in the SEC, including a sweep of rival Mississippi State University. This mark was good enough to secure the SEC title. In the 1972 NCAA University Division Baseball Tournament the team defeated Jacksonville State but suffered a loss at the hands of ACC Champion Virginia. A subsequent win over Florida State placed them in a rematch with Virginia, a game they won convincingly 9-0. The tournament ended with 2 games against South Alabama, a team that had swept Ole Miss at the beginning of the season. Once again, Ole Miss proved they were the better team when it mattered, winning both and advancing to the College World Series. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
