A hot southern team that can really hit.
Central michigan who had an unbelievable year and then miami is always miami.
They had a new run cause they got a new head coach.
They've played very well so we got our work cut out for us."
"if we play our baseball i'd lie to see the team that beats us.
It's not a cocky piece.
It's moe along the lines of when we play our baseball i think we're the best team in the country.
We play good defense.
But that doesn't mean we're gonna roll out here and play well.
We got to slow things down a little bit and get back to us here at home.
Really get locked in on this regional."
"that's what's great about this team this year.
The depth is unreal and we have a lot of freshmen stepping up now.
Cerantola came out and threw really well.
Smith showed he can really perform in big enviornments so we're excited about how deep this postseason run can really go with the depth we have."
