HEAD COACH JOHN BARGFELDT POSTGAME QUOTES FOLLOWING 9-4 VICTORY OVER MIDDLE TENNESSEE
April 27, 2014
On Sunday's victory
On the balance of the offensive lineup throughout the season
"They set the runs record, home runs, they're close on hits. I know on base and slugging is better than it's ever been. Total bases is a record this year. I know we've gotten the triples record as well. Batting average right now is way above what it's been. So, from an offensive standpoint, and I know those are percentages and those things can change. But when you've gone through a season as far as we have, and you've done the things that they've done offensively, that's very impressive. And the pitching staff is setting records. Five losses on the year, my goodness - 40 games over .500. Just to say that, that's in some special territory right there."
On celebrating the regular season C-USA Championship on their home field
"We clinched the regular season in '09 here, but most everything else - tournament victories, other than '06 - has been clinched on the road. It was nice to allow our home crowd to give recognition to the team for that achievement. We were excited that we attained that. That's one of our goals that we set forth always, every year, is to win conference championships.
"This was the fourth championship for the seniors. We recognize anybody with four or more championships, and they still have some possibility at some others. We recognize them with a plaque that goes in our trophy case. For all six of them, they're all going to have a plaque that goes in there. There are only four in there right now. So, now six are going to join them. That says something, too, about the type of total team that you have here."
