This is a tough schedule, but to reach the "next level", we have to play P5 teams. I recall in previous years, we beat up on Morgan State and TN-Chattanooga in Clermont to open the season, which really didn't prepare us for "next level".
In order to win in NCAA Post season, we have to be exposed to the best teams in the country. last weekend, we did a good job of bouncing back after losing our first 4 games. We played well in the win over Ole Miss. We did not look like an 0-4 team.
Many of these teams we're playing early in season, will be the teams we will see in Women's College World Series come May or June. The pitching staff will get better as season progresses. We are starting 5 freshmen. This exposure to Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, UCLA, Washington and FSU will pay dividends down the road.
