QUOTING PAUL MAINIERI
“It never gets any easier in the SEC. In the past three weekends, we’ve played three Top 10 teams, including the best offensive team in the league (Mississippi State) and the team with the best ERA in the conference (Texas A&M). Now, we play a Missouri team on the road that has taken over the lead for best ERA in the SEC, and they have a rotation of left-handed starters that is outstanding. This series already represents the halfway mark of our SEC schedule, and we’re looking forward to great competition with Missouri this weekend.”
