How did they do it?

A few great quotes on how Fresno St. made their magical run through the NCAA playoffs. It is a great lesson on how to "overachieve".

"The biggest reason Fresno won is because they became invincible," Texas coach Augie Garrido said. "They became warriors on the field. They became superheroes, playing through pain, playing through adversity, believing in themselves."

"It was a tremendous show of the importance of attitude and teamwork," said Garrido, who has the most coaching victories in major college baseball history. "You saw a bunch of kids with bloody noses and broken fingers, sweaty brows and torn-up uniforms. It just is the magic that belongs to college baseball."

"I think (Fresno State) definitely shows that if a team gets hot and is playing its best baseball at the right part of the season, you can be really dangerous," said KU coach Rich Price said. "We feel like we could have accomplished that same thing and got to Omaha."
