It takes more than talent

Good article from the OWH about the 2009 Husker baseball team. Coach Anderson is preaching growth this upcoming season. Anderson's quest for growth includes an interesting objective- to create space between the current husker program and former stars Alex Gordon and Joba Chamberlain. Anderson believes that many players in the program are just trying to be the next big league star. Instead Anderson is looking for players to turn their focus to the team.

"If you put an emphasis on the academic side of things and put an emphasis on team," the coach said, "you're going to have guys who want to do those things and not just be the next Alex or Joba."

"Talent is talent, but maturity and intangibles will always carry over. Talent is very rarely ever enough."
