"I think I said last year that our Super Regional win was the most gratifying win of my career and I think today may be the most gratifying Regional win of my career," said Coach Murphy. "To go through what we've been through with all the ups and downs, a lot of downs, they never once quit. I always said the best is yet to come."

Alabama won the national championship in 2012.
