I’m really proud of this team. It’s not easy to go 16-0. The ball can take some funny bounces some times. But for the most part we’ve hit, pitched and defended pretty well.
I'm really proud of this team and what we've accomplished. Securing a Big 12 championship with games yet to be played is a pretty special accomplishment and we're not taking it for granted for one single second. We're just not going to celebrate it with all the euphoria yet, because there's so much out there still that we can do.
When I'm going well, I'll hit the ball the other way. That's where I got in trouble the last week is that I pulled everything - no matter if it's a fastball away. Today I told myself I'm going to try to go the other way. I was fortunate enough to do it, and I hit everything pretty much. You have to know your strengths.
I'm pretty excited with what I've seen. [In all three games,] we hit really well. Defensively, we had just one game in which we didn't make plays. Also, our pitchers have been dominant. We're two big hits from being 3-0. We're gonna be pretty darn good here if we do everything we should.
I'm proud of them. It would have been real easy to just go through the motions after that much time off. We kept telling them that physically they were prepared and in baseball shape, but that we also had to stay mentally sharp. Tonight, they looked mentally sharp. They came out ready to play.
I'm excited about this team. I really am. I mean, these guys are great guys, ... They are going to be passionate. They are going to bring this message of hope and opportunity, a stronger America -- a better and more respected America -- to the rest of this country. They're going to make us feel proud.
