    This is a very talented team. Some of the best hitters in the nation and a collection of good young and experienced pitchers...and most important, they seem to have fun and hang like a family. In answer to someone else's post; yes, I'm looking forward to a LONG and FUN season. It would be almost impossible to match last year's regular season record and I don't really care. Even Oklahoma lost several games early last year before going on a run in conference.

    I hope and believe the Gophies will use the NCAA debacle last year as a lesson. Regardless of the screwing by the NCAA and Umpire (AL game 1) they seemed to be overly patient at the plate in the regionals, while they got there by being aggressive all season and blasting the hell out of the ball. They will be just fine if they stay true to their talents, stay focused, and have fun.

    I agree with everything you say. The difference at a high level often boils down to the breaks, some good; others bad. I look, with pride, at all the great things they have accomplished. I also tried to point out the areas in which they have come up short if they are to compete against the Oklahomas, Floridas, Washingtons, etc., the national elite, there focusing my comments solely on the NCAA playoffs. Having said that, I suspect Trachsel is also looking for outstanding speed and infield defense in addition to power hitting. I'm excited about the upcoming season. The key will be superior pitching and clutch hitting. They can do it!
