This is my 7th trip to Omaha. Everyyear is different and this year is no exception. The Horns will have to come through the losers bracket for the third straight weekend if they are to advance to the Championship series and open up TD Ameritrade the same way they opened Rosenblatt — with a National Championship. I think they have a shot, but I’m an optimist when it comes to teams coached by Augie Garrido. The impossible awaits someone. who has prepared for the moment. The only thing I didn’t like about coming this year was having to cut short my vacation with my neice and nephew to head to Omaha. This is where dreams come true and life leassons are learned. Maybe one day, he will be here, maybe not.
I could never have imagined I would have been here 7 times. This time would be the most unique if they win it all. It will be the first time since 1950 they would’ve lost the first game and came back to win. They have done it 11 times but onlyonce have they done what South Carolina did in 2010. I hope we’re here for a while but if not, I think over the next four years the opportunity to make trips 8,9 and 10 are there. I think this team will win it all in the next three years.
Cole Green says he’s ready for the ball in this CWS elimination game. Cole also started the last game in 2009 against LSU so he knows pressure. I think Taylor Jungmann just tried to hard not to lose and as Augie would say, when you try you get out of rhythm and start expecting things.
So, I’m not expecting anything, just ready to enjoy whatever magical moments appear.
