CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The magical run isn't over just yet.

Thursday, College of Charleston baseball fans lined the side of Patriot's Point stadium, wishing their team goodbye, and good luck.

The Cougars are now just two games shy of the College World Series in Omaha, but will first have to get through a best-of-three series in Lubbock, Texas, against No. 23 Texas Tech.

CofC is the only 4th seeded team still alive in the college baseball playoffs, making only its second Super Regional appearance in program history.

"I think we embrace that underdog title, but we don't feel like we're underdogs," said 6th year head coach Monte Lee.

"We're Cougars!"

Longtime Cougars fan, Tony Meyer has followed the team for 66 years, and won't shy away from the title:  historian.

Meyer stood as a believer, among a host of fans Thursday, confident the team would play on for a fourth weekend of "unbelievable" baseball.

"Stay focused," he said, offering advice before the afternoon send-off.

"We've had three wonderful weekends. Let's have a fourth."
