Yet the Commodores continue to have a very big gap in their resume: They're still looking for that first trip to Omaha and the College World Series.
Vanderbilt missed out in 2007 when it had David Price and a team ranked No. 1 in the country. The Commodores lost 7-6 at Florida State in the rubber game of the NCAA Super Regional last year.
Third baseman Jason Esposito says they're not changing anything and won't worry about either past history or future results. The Commodores (31-3) are focused only on one game at a time.
