The Nebraska Cornhuskers softball team is already slated to have the kind of season that the program just hasn’t had, maybe ever. One of the big reasons the team is getting so much preseason love is because of transfer player Jordy Bahl.

Bahl is one of the best players in the state and is fresh off a championship run with the Oklahoma Sooners and has now come home. These days, Bahl is busy showing her new teammates what it takes to jump up to National Championship levels.

The pitcher talked to the media this weekend and laid out the Nebraska Cornhuskers approach this spring. In particular, she talked about “training for the five percent.”

The “five percent” is the most high-pressure moments that a team can see. It’s how a program deals with those moments that separate the winners and the losers. And this year, Bahl and company expect to emerge from those moments as the victors.
