Tom Holliday: Grinding For A National Title

Former Oklahoma State head coach Tom Holliday says the College World Series isn't a vacation for the Cowboys coaching staff as they aim to win the national championship.

With Oklahoma State head coach Josh Holliday being celebrated for getting Oklahoma State not only back in the College World Series but in a strong position to make the best-of-three championship finals which start next Monday at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Josh's father and former Oklahoma State head coach Tom Holliday, the last coach to take the Cowboys to the CWS prior to this season, is making the rounds on radio from national shows to local shows like Sports Talk with Robert Allen and Friends. 

One of the subjects that Tom Holliday has really expounded on this week is how the staff really grinded during the one successful trip he made to Omaha with Texas after he was let go at OSU. They watched a lot of video. They were very rarely out of the hotel except for practice and the games. Holliday said he felt he knew the other teams in the series that season better than their own coaches did.

All season long, Josh Holliday and pitching coach Rob Walton have leaned heavily on video scouting and the College World Series is no different. The Oklahoma State staff is grinding just like father Tom Holliday has been preaching this week.
