College Baseball World Series 2011: Can Florida Put Game 1 Errors Behind Them?
Two Extra Inning Throwing Errors Cost Florid Game 1 of the 2011 College World Series
Game One was a game Florida needed to win. It was a game they should have wonn. It was a game they looked like they were about to win, but ultimately it was a game they blew. That can be a hard thing to bounce back from in just 24 hours.
Florida had the bases loaded in the 10th inning with no outs. Only to get turned away by two impressive plays by the Gamecocks second baseman to get the force out at home. The second turned into a double play to end the inning.

The letdown appeared to carry over to their defense in the 11th. Florida committed two throwing errors and they led to USC scoring the one and only run of extra innings.
Now Florida has to find a way to forget their failures; they have to find a way to forget that they were literally inches away from being up 1-0, but instead face a reality of being down 1-0. That can be a hard thing to shake. It can tighten up the muscles in one's body and the nerves in one's head.
