"We're getting back to really playing fast." Outside of quarterback, Auburn is returning a slew of experience on the offensive side of the ball, and head coach Gus Malzahn is excited to once again have play-calling duties.
"That's been the story of us all year. People have counted us out, we've been behind, we've battled back. This is what we've been doing all year."
"This team's really grown a lot. We've changed, and we're better. I don't think much shocks us. We'll be back."
"There was enough fortitude, there was enough confidence in themselves, maybe even when people gave up on them. I think these guys still think they’re good baseball players, and believed that the whole time.”
For the first time since 1997, Auburn is going to the College World Series.
"We just really couldn't get anything going offensively."
"What will be important tomorrow is try to focus one pitch at a time. If something happens, and it probably will at some point in the contest tomorrow, can we let it go? And just get right back on what's important now."
For the first time in program history, Auburn is headed to the NCAA Super Regionals for the second straight year.
"We never thought we were out of it the whole entire game."
"I’m pretty sure we’ll have a lot of fans there. It could be like another home game for us.”
