ARKANSAS SAID IT ...
► "I got to really watch Scott [Stricklin] in action.  He throws good BP. He's fun in the dugout, intense in the dugout. Couple times I had to remind him we're playing Japan, could you leave the umpires alone. I remember before the selection show, I was talking to the coaches at the tournament, one team you don't want to face in a regional is Kent State because they're up there. They have a chip on their shoulder. They play hard, and I have just a lot of respect for Scott. It was a great summer. I didn't know how it would go for me. I was nervous being away from our program that long, but it was well worth it." -- Head coach Dave Van Horn

► "It's always special when you're coaching where you play. You know, my wife went to the University of Arkansas, I could go on and on. I had a lot of friends in the area. It was awfully special when I was in Nebraska, and you get to bring the school you played for back and have a chance to play at this level for a national championship. Probably the only thing better is winning it all. That's something we're hoping we can accomplish this year and in the future." -- Head coach Dave Van Horn

KENT STATE SAID IT ...
► "I certainly have a lot of respect for Dave Van Horn. Been around him in the recruiting circles at Georgia Tech, and I was excited when I was able to join that [Team USA] staff. It was just a great experience for me as a young coach to learn how things are supposed to be done on a daily basis to learn the intensity that coach Van Horn brings every day. That's what I try to do." -- Head coach Scott Stricklin

► "We heard a lot of that coming out in February and March early in the season. Some northern coaches and some northern conferences talking about the disadvantages that we have. Well, we all know that. The north is the north, the south is the south. The weather is not going to change. Our sport is very weather dependent. What we've been able to do and what Stony Brook has been able to do is keep our local players home, keep the best players close to home, and develop a toughness about ourselves." -- Head coach Scott Stricklin
