It's clear this was not a team built to win extended tournaments like the CWS. We won one and got that monkey off the back. Vandy is just head and shoulders above LSU at this point and know how to win. Sure I wish we would have beaten TCU but it just wasn't going to happen, winning 3 straight wi...View Topic - Replies (3)
