Sam Houston State Head Coach Matt Deggs delivers a powerful message following a 19-0 loss to the Seminoles eliminating the Bearcats from the NCAA college baseball tournament.

Great stuff from Coach Deggs. In a time where self entitlement is through the roof. Matt Deggs delivers a inspirational statement about second chances, coaching, building players up and sacrifice.

The Bearcats suddenly became the talk of college baseball when they upset No. 5 Texas Tech in their regional qualifier. Although the unranked Bearcats made it to NCAA regionals four out of the past five seasons, they had never advanced to a super regional (top 16 teams). Heartbreak struck when they faced off against Florida State in the potential elimination game down 1-0 in the series (3 game series). Florida State would go on to carve up 19 runs against the underdog Bearcats. Crushing Sam Houston State’s dreams of punching a ticket to Omaha for the College World Series.

The College World Series kicks off Saturday June, 17 in Omaha, Nebraska. Full bracket here at
