This is what we’ve worked for. 8 teams remain. 2 weeks to crown a champion.

Corbs, Brownie, and Astronaut Mike Baxter have assembled the deepest roster in Omaha, with a meat grinder of a lineup, and wave after wave of arms that can hit 95mph+. We’ve got the NCAA Home Runs leader, #4 overall pick, and All-American in JJ Bleday; the SEC batting champ and All-American in Austin Martin; a Freshman All-American fresh off a 19 K no hitter in the Supers in Kumar Rocker; All-American and best closer in the country Tyler “The Deliveryman” Brown; the best offensive catcher still playing in Philip “The Hitman” Clarke; a 9 hole hitter with a dozen dingers in Julian “Chinfante” Infante... and so so much more.

We are SEC regular season champions, SEC Tournament champions, and have beaten every team in our side of the bracket—a combined 6-0 against Auburn, Mississippi State, and Louisville this year.

We are the Minotaur in the maze of TD Ameritrade Park, and today we’re hungry for Cardinals.

On Friday, we got to “Better Know the Louisville Cardinals.” Today, we make them wish they’d never met us.

(please and thank you)
