Pierce's Expectations
"I think we have the best advantage right now out of all the teams. We have a senior class that knows what it takes to win a national championship and we have our next two classes that know what it feels like to get close, so we know what it takes to get back there. We also know how hard we are going to have to work to get to the national championship this year."
