I'm really happy they won and not many casual fans like me will be happier if they get to the series. I did notice on twitter someone I know very well with huge connections to the team at one time was happy they didn't lose because of such a silly play.

Games at 5. Go Gophers.

Awesome. Great to see them advance, and to do it at home in front of a packed house. They brought in riser seating for another 200-250 seats too. Pretty cool 👌

Yes. It's the one thing that made me the most nervous. Amazing that after all the great "horse" pitchers (Moulton, Groenwagon (sp?) Fiser was the one that busted them through.

Everything after now is gravy. Although I really want them to outlast Florida if at all possible.

Baseball ends their season with a loss to Ohio St. They made a decent run, just couldn’t finish it off.

Bummer. Disappointing. They were pretty banged up all season long. They showed some heart this weekend, though.

Watched the presser today with Jamie Trachsel and the other coaches in the Gophers bracket (All Pac-12 teams, Arizona, UCLA, and Washington, that's some heavy lifting).

Heard the unmistakable voice of Patrick Reusse who asked her about the schedule from this season and how it helped them get them to where they are today. You could tell Jamie was a little star struck being there. Hope the moment doesn't get to big for her and the squad. They may not win it all but you'd at least like to be competitive and have a good showing.

Our buddy Patrick Reusse at his best. Writing a great article on Piper, and Fiser. Taking advantage of the press conference he was at yesterday.

Just wanted to iterate again how amazing this accomplishment is for Gopher Softball. And it happened AFTER their superstar coach and superstar player both left the program over a two year period.

The fact that the program through the changes was able to keep their pitching coach and with that some continuity is the key to how this happened. Even more amazing is the pitching coach was here and part of the coaching staff that got fired for cause and allowed them to hire Allister in the first place.

An amazing set of circumstances and a great accomplishment. I never thought it would happen. I would have thought a Vikings Super Bowl win or Wild Cup Win was more possible than getting here with this team.

Kendyl Lindaman who is on the Gator squad at the series. Circumstances? Depends on what you read. She wasn't happy here is the easiest way to put it. For whatever reason.

I don't care. I won't click on any Ruesse article because he is too often a troll who tries to kill any momentum the big 3 programs get when they try to build.

I don't mind going after a program when they've done something wrong, but he'll cut your legs out from under you when you try to climb back on the horse.

Big game today. UCLA's pitcher is probably the best in the country. Find a way to stay in the winners bracket today it could go a long way to determining how well they do ultimately.

Garcia throws a hell of a curveball. That's the pitch my daughter got really good at and made her living while she was playing. She wouldn't have had much of a softball "career" without it.

3-2 on a hit. Unfortunately thrown out trying to stretch it to a double. Bottom of the 6th coming up. Got one more at bat to tie it or win it.

Fiser has 5 walks today. That's a career high according to the TV. Amazing they're still in this. This game has a lot of the weirdness we saw in the rest of the playoffs. This team was so clean all year. Just had another uncharacteristic error in the field.

Gotta get out of this bottom of the 6th and find a way with the bottom of the order to come up (no hits today) to get the top of the order up again like Snowcool said.

The door was open. And the uncharacteristic error costs them. All the runs this inning are UNEARNED. Can't do that in Softball.

They can still put a run together. They had an off day against the #2 team and still had a chance. Put together a run in the sub-bracket.

That's just frustrating as hell to open the door like that and then just throw it away. Oh, well, sometimes gravy tastes like crap.

Game has restarted. I did not get to watch earlier. Fiser no longer pitching? 5-1. They had a shot while still 3-1 but just gave up another two. Still top of 6.

Incredible season just to get here. Actually unbelievable every time I analyze it.

It's bitter. Minnesota's best player left in February to go to Florida. One of the reasons is she "wanted to chase her dream".

Watching this UCLA-UW game... How did the Gophers manage to score on this UCLA pitcher?? She is phenomenal. Washington just got their first baserunner past 2B and it was with 2 outs in the 8th inning.

I thought I would share this article. It's a great read. The person that wrote it coached my daughter for a season of summer softball while she was working a the U for Gopher Softball so I know her. The reflection on the pain around the program the year they were snubbed is palpable and a good look at big money in college sports. It's part of the reason this season was so magical and why you have to just get up and try again no matter how wrong the snub was.
