College World Series: 5 fun questions for Coastal Carolina

The Chanticleers of Coastal Carolina have been all business since they got to Omaha, winning four consecutive elimination games on their way to the Championship Series.

But thought they might like to unwind a bit the day before they take on Arizona for the CWS title. So we decided to toss them a few less serious questions on media dayt.

RELATED: College World Series bracket

The questions:

• What is your walk-up song?
• If a movie were made about this team, which actor would you want to play you?
• What is your favorite place in Omaha (excluding TD Ameritrade Park)?
• If your coach were a professor at your school, what would he teach?
• What is your favorite TV show?

Here's what they had to say:



Andrew Beckwith

"Seven Bridges Road" by The Eagles

Ryan Reynolds The Blatt Don't get in Trouble 101 Walking Dead

Michael Paez

"Dubble Bubble Trouble" by "M.I.A"

“Michael Scott from The Office" Omaha Prime Steakhouse History The Office

Connor Owings

We also had a chance to sit down with the Chants' dugout mascot "Rafiki" and ask him the same questions.

Rafiki would like to be played by Tarzan and his walk-up song would be "George of the Jungle." But he refused to name any place in Omaha other than TD Ameritrade Park as his favorite. He said he would teach "Walking 101" and that every show on Animal Planet is his favorite.

The Chanticleers will take on the Arizona Wildcats on Monday, June 26, at 7 p.m. ET. Watch the live broadcast on ESPN and check out for live updates from Omaha.
