Mike Martin said, "All of us are disappointed, but I think you have to reflect on the entire season, anytime it ends prematurely you're disappointed."
And prematurely for the Seminoles is ending your season before Omaha, and it's been 7 consecutive years since the Noles have made the trip west.
Martin said, "There's a standard here with this program and it's Omaha, and the fact that we didn't make it, there's a lot of disappointment, but let's don't take away from what these young men accomplished."
And those accomplishments are many, leading the nation in hitting, 6 first team all conference performers including Pitcher of the Year Bryan Henry and Player of the Year Tony Thomas Jr. But with Henry being a senior and Thomas according to Martin leaving after this weeks Major League Baseball Drat, there will be holes to fill.
Martin said, "To replace Henry and Hyde, and Chambers and the guys we lose this year will be very difficult, but we need to have some guys ready to step into those roles."
49-13, ACC regular season champs, and the player and pitcher of the year in the league, certainly great accomplishments, but for FSU, those stats will ring a little hollow without that trip to Omaha.
