This was a sad way to end the season. This team was either overrated or an underachiever;take your pick. 35 runs scored against, 21 walks, 6 hit by pitches and 43 lob in four games in post season play. Mooneyham in the super regionals did not make it past the 3rd inning each weekend...and he is the number 2 guy?? Any reasonable person would have to say that this team was a major disappointment no matter how you sugar coat "what might have been". Team batting average for conference play was only 270...
Did the early season press clippings go to this team's head??

A definite disappointment for the Super Regionals. Was that a soccer crowd at Florida State or what? Speaks to a neutral venue for important games or using both team venues!
Good fun baseball to take in during the season though; triple play by Michigan State? vs Fresno State, and that amazing pass ball that Stanford scored 3 runs off of, makes for fun baseball watching. Thanks Stanford! Better luck next year.
