It's Tuesday morning and Missouri State pitching coach Paul Evans is preparing for the Bears' midweek bout against Kansas, an always tough opponent. But though he's incredibly busy, he has plenty of time to talk about his weekend rotation.

Check that, he makes time to talk about his weekend rotation. And at this stage in the season, with the Bears sitting at 20-6, who can really blame him?

When it comes to the nation's best weekend rotations, the easy answer everyone always comes back with is, you guessed it, Florida. But while there are plenty of other premier rotations around the country, the one at Missouri State deserves its name in the ring as one of the fastest rising rotations in the land.

Though the Bears have some productive hitters, the weekend rotation is the chief reason why this team has a chance to reach the College World Series for the first time since 2003.

"If you look at the sheer numbers, this group has done just as well, or better, than some of the best staffs we've had in our program's history," Evans said. "We've been in some good situations this season, even recently allowing just one base-hit an entire weekend."

Unlike some other elite pitching staffs, the Bears don't have a staff or weekend rotation that has been dominant for a couple of seasons. Instead, this is a unit with several individuals that have either overcome some adversity in the form or injuries, or simply have developed throughout their careers into the dominant arms they are today.
