VIDEO: South Carolina week
On playing South Carolina: "I am excited about it and looking forward to it. We have a great challenge going down there and then at the Drive's stadium and back at home on Sunday. They have been playing well and we have been playing well, so it should be a great matchup."
On Friday's pitching matchup of Daniel Gossett vs. Jordan Montgomery: "It is as good as it gets. Montgomery pitched really well against us last year. 'Goose' has pitched pretty well against them. He is tough to hit and is a great competitor and it is the same thing with Montgomery, so it should be a great matchup."
On the atmosphere compared to other rivalry series: "I think this is one of the better weekend rivalry series in the country. The three venues that we play at are sold out and there are people all over the place. There is a lot of interest from the fans in the state because it is a great intra-state rivalry. That makes it a big deal and we are excited about the opportunities that we have in front of us."

On playing in the rivalry: "It is the same game that it has been the whole time this rivalry has been going. We have two good teams this year and I think it is going to be a really fun game. Both teams have a lot of talent and it is going to be good competition to see how we stack up against teams like them this year."
On looking ahead to South Carolina: "We have been ready for this day to come so we could focus solely on South Carolina. Everyone looks forward to this series because there is a lot of hype around it and bragging rights that come with it. It is definitely a series that we have been looking forward to."
Daniel Gossett, RHP
On the matchup with Montgomery: "It's cool, there's no doubt about it. I faced him a couple of years ago and in high school and I have always been on the wrong side of it, so hopefully we can change that."
On the atmosphere throughout the series: "It's always fun. Everyone is going to be in to it and everyone is invested. Their fans are going to be coming at us and our fans are going to be going at them. That's just how it works. As a competitor, it makes me excited to know that the fans are invested. It's awesome."
