Bullldogs Face Stanford at 7:00 PM on ESPN2

The next step in the chase for a College World Series title involves a match-up with Stanford at 7:00 PM. Georgia will start Nick Montgomery.

Nick's story will probably get a lot of play during tonight's telecast from the ESPN2 crew. He has overcome blood clots and Tommy John surgery to deliver a couple of monster starts for Georgia this season.

He was the starting pitcher vs. Georgia Tech in the Turner Field game, and he overwhelmed the Yellow Jackets in the NCAA regionals throwing a complete game four hit shutout. In the Super Regional vs. NC State, he again pitched a solid game for UGA to advance to Omaha. The team is supremely confident in him right now.

Preview Articles:
  • Expect No Letdown - The AJC discusses the team's attitude heading into Monday's night's game.
  • Last Minute Look at Stanford - Kyle King does a quick study of The Cardinal.
  • Deepest Lineup in Omaha - Baseball America says Stanford has talent to burn at every area except starting pitching. Their top two guys are all-stars, but the rest of the staff is shaky.
  • Stanford's Other Slugger - The attention will be on Jason Castro (no...not the stoner from American Idol), but Sean Ratliff is the real deal. He's hit 21 homers and 69 RBI.
  • Montgomery won't just watch - Per the ABH: "Everyone has a lot of confidence in him pitching," senior outfielder Matt Olson said. "The last two or three starts, he's been outstanding. Hopefully, he'll continue to throw a lot of strikes and get a lot of people out."
  • Fairy Tale Ending - The ABH notebook mentions that Ryan Peisel's big night on Saturday was part of his birthday celebration.
A win vs. Stanford lets the Bulldogs rest until Friday at 2:00 PM (EDT) on ESPN2. A loss forces us into an elimination game on Wednesday night against the winner of the Miami vs. FSU game.

I love it that the "Gordo's Green House" banner made it to Omaha.
Did anyone see it on T.V.?

Is the arm problem Nick had requiring the surgery and removal of a rib the same thing that one time UGA and later Auburn QB Daniel Cobb had several years ago?

I seem to recall that with Cobb, something about the development of his shoulder muscles had pinched the blood vessels and let to a clot problem, and I know that it was finally solved by removing all or part of a rib.

I'm not a doctor, I just play one online. Though, I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express one night in Miami before deposing a vascular surgeon.

OMG, Orel's on our side again! Only one more inning; I sure as Hell don't want to face Miami again. We'll have to, but please get some insurance boys, PLEASE!
