Overconfident

The university that I coach has had a pretty up and down season. However, we are .500 in our conference and still control our own fate as far as the postseason tournament is concerned.

Today, we won 16-1 in a big game and our biggest game of the year is this coming Wednesday.

My experience is that either one of two things will happen. We can come out with the same attitude and focus. Or we can expect that because of our last outing, by simply showing up, we will cruise to victory.

Here's hoping that our players look to the former and realize that, while today's success may bring confidence, we still have to show up ready to play.

Confidence is one of the best attributes to have in a baseball player. Overconfidence is the worst.
