    Per Austin Nola:

    Ross, who has thrown well in his last five starts to earn the starting nod over 6-foot-7 junior right-hander Anthony Ranaudo (5-2, 7.49 ERA), said the postseason surge has been a matter of relaxing.

    "I think the pressure was off of us when we made it to the SEC Tournament," Ross said. "We stumbled the last four weeks of SEC [regular-season play] and went from being No. 1 in the country to not knowing if we were going to make it into the SEC Tournament. Once we made the SEC Tournament, the monkey was kind of off our back and we could just kind of relax."

    Makes sense whole team has come alive.

    Looked pretty relaxed most of the game yesterday and then tightened up late in the game.

    I was at the game tonight and we just looked flat. I think alot had to do with their starting pitcher getting into a grove after the first inning.

    what helped ucla's pitcher was lsu's persistance to take 2 strikes right down the pipe, then swing at a curve in the dirt for strike 3.
