Gamecock 2B Chase Vergason: Ready for the Hogs?

Sportstalkgolive: Gamecocks ready to battle Arkansas for bracket lead (AUDIO). A great piece by Phil Kornblut, with news and notes on most of the USC starters and a trip down memory lane with those three memorable games last month at Baum Stadium.

Post & Courier: Darryl Slater writes that South Carolina pitcher Colby Holmes more relaxed in his second trip to College World Series and South Carolina coaches ready to start pitcher Michael Roth on three days of rest if needed. I personally would start Montgomery for the inevitable UF rematch (assuming the Gators dismiss Kent State today, we play them win or lose against the Hogs tonight), and save Roth for a possible elimination game scenario.

The Big Spur: Today in Omaha - June 18 by John Whittle, who also files Gamecocks gear up for Hogs. Check out the pic of Colby on a tricycle. I'd say the boys are nice and loose. Spartanburg Herald-Journal writer John Byrum thinks South Carolina closer Price best under pressure. No doubt about that; he's been under more pressure than a bathysphere in the Marianas Trench.
