GAME THREAD: FAU vs. UF - March 3, 2021
Great win. Entenza is a star. Hunter Cooley has really grown into a crafty lefty. TV broadcast was factual and respectful to FAU. A good night!
The Rundown is coming soon…

Haha could you imagine!? We owe them an ass kicking on the gridiron after last time…
Pitching was stellar today. Cooley was incredibly good and entertaining. Entenza really showcased who he can do. Stuart's performance shouldn't be overlooked either: 4.0 IP, 3H, ,2ER, 6K is a pretty solid day!
