And of course we expect/hope to finish a lot higher.
But the two teams who go 2-and-Q in Omaha finish the season tied for 7th in the country. So if you win your first one, worst you can do is T-5th at 1-2. With the possible exception of Florida (which won’t IMO), if you told every coach in the country in February he’d finish the CWS T-5, he would have taken it gladly.
Win tomorrow, and the worst you can do is T-3rd. Which is our best performance since the '79 title game loss.
