USC got to the doorstep of Omaha last season but a red hot Oklahoma State pitching staff which held the Gamecocks to a total of two runs in a two game super regional sweep in Columbia denied Chad Holbrook his first CWS appearance as USC’s head coach. But Holbrook appears poised to bust thru that door this season with a deep and talented pitching staff and plenty of veterans returning from last season.
The Gamecocks began pre-season practice Friday afternoon with the first of three scrimmages thru the weekend at Founders Park. Prior to hitting the field, Holbrook and several of his players met with the media to preview what they hope will be a season that ends in late June in Nebraska.
