Heading to Hoover
Dave McMahon -- The regular season is done, now it's the postseason, there are no weak teams left, but that's ok with you?
Kyle Keen -- First of all, the SEC doesn't have weak teams, but I think our team does better against better teams. We have a lot of confidence now. It all started when we beat Georgia Tech, we feel we can take anybody.
DM -- Last year the team did not qualify for the SEC Tournament, how much did that hurt?
KK -- It hurt a lot. Last year we missed qualifying by a half game. Getting back here was definately a goal for us.
DM -- Explain the atmosphere at the SEC Championships... at the Hoover Met?
KK -- It is incredible. It is notch below the College World Series. Everything is great except how hot it is. But everything is first class.
DM -- This has been a tough year for you individually... hasn't it?
KK -- I have had a strained muscle in my back almost all year. I think I hurt it even more when I tried to come back too soon. I developed some bad swinging habits when I tried to overcompensate. I think I am at 100% now and I am close to getting my old swing back.
DM -- But, coming back is not so easy. This is a tough lineup to crack, especially in the outfield.
KK -- Right. I just have to find places and then go out there and contribute.
DM -- Georgia's first opponent is Vanderbilt, tell me about them.
KK -- They have always had tough pitching. They can definately score, but it's there pitching which is there strength.
DM -- Thank you and good luck the rest of the way.
