Marquess: 'Experience is a huge factor in the NCAA Tournament'
Yeah. Your matchup. But it's good it will from it other than that the bad thing -- are all about -- only losses -- from Thursday so we know they're very. That's forcing that's real tough foresee that. We were familiar with them and they have an outstanding team and and Collins to run in the -- going mass championship computers and state and and beat him so. It'll -- just my strong point -- but you know at this stage in -- strong points. But about it. I don't I don't know much about Michigan staters and pepper on the plate for awhile -- you would normally play goma. But not for the past couple years and obviously the plan very well they won that conference -- a strong indeed achieved so. O'Brien is. When I know very knobs and very well coached. So it it'll it'll be it'll be a strong field but I I don't think there's any weak field. It and in these things because normally the teams that are that are there are playing well at at the right time and I've always said that. Things changed about college baseball's opener. So much more parity than there used to be and I think that's natural healthy for a game and I think as shown out you don't have a Texas went. -- a -- 64 that's pretty good you know also on the West Coast unity. He happens. -- -- -- world so there's a lot of good teams left out but I think that at talks about the the third. Overall -- baseball. When you let -- You did -- You came back tees -- -- the next game third game -- You take that. How much does that. Well I act I think that put me and make a lot of difference we played them 234 weeks ago we played them. You know like the third week of the season so that's a long ago. It's hard -- it's hard to say that the thing I do know about them there they were a young team they have a lot of freshmen were plan. At this this time you're in that department freshman anymore more like -- -- so. They're very talented. You know the center fielder hit two home runs up well you know and in that one game and so. And they're playing well right now obviously so. It's such it's a tough matchup for us but again. There's I don't think there really aren't easy match. You answered your team and -- More how we play you know it it. But it's true that he -- a dominant pitcher or you make a couple of errors equipment couple silly mistakes. You don't execute. Com and -- time thinking come down to at this stage. You know if you make a couple of mistakes the wrong time or don't win a couple of -- a pitcher you get beat it's it's that. -- -- Is that people the exit so -- it. As a as as as a -- of -- -- that it's not the best team the ones. Okay it's a team plays best and I think that's very true. This time of year. The -- the team that plays the best wins not necessarily the best team that goes for a ghost for the Florida's second you know that happens and you see it issues. Mean so much more than your average when he went by of course -- -- point -- fighters that never happen. But it happens now frequently so the team that plays best when. I think experience factors -- huge huge thing I think if you've been there before. If you've been to post season before we've been doing regional before -- it's a little bit difference. More media coverage. The good games on TV which changes the starting times you know we normally set up starting -- that will be changed the TV two company TV which is great. Degree for the semis or repair players are here to conceal it but it's. You know I. Experience makes a big victims -- steps super regional commanders -- reachable for which we doubt that helps. Most definitely don't want have been normal horse toward Gordon. Just so different. So. Now we have played a whole -- -- well so it's if that'll be different force which I think is obviously advantageous that's what you play the regular season. Have a good record and hopefully you can -- a first round. We played well enough to be able to run.
