"We've been here before," Murphy told his team, then asked them for examples. Players pointed to situations earlier this season when Alabama dropped the opening game of three-game series against Florida and Georgia before storming back to win the next two, and to a loss to Stanford in last year's super regional opener, where the Crimson Tide again rallied to win twice. "It's the same situation," Murphy said. "We lost the first game, but that's why you play two-out-of-three. We came back all three times and won the series. I think the SEC prepares you for this, because every weekend is two-out-of-three. "You lose the first one, you've go to learn how to bounce back and battle back."

Roll Tide.
