NCAA Baseball Tournament (FYI)

FYI

Based on the looks of the NCAA Regional matchups (below), either FSU (Lenny, Willy/Judy), Georgia (Jim), or Ohio State (Dick) might get to play Oklahoma (Cat) in the Norman Super Regional -- if OU gets by Arkansas & Wichita.

Rhode Island
(Willy, Lenny) should have made the Tourney, but were not shown any love by the Tournament Selection Committee. ..I think that the Regionals begin this Friday, which means the Super Regionals will be next week, with the 8 "Super" winners going to the College World Series after that. ..Omaha, baby!

While you can't trust any of the NCAA Baseball Polls, most have OU & FSU near the top 10, with UGA in the top 25 and Ohio State in the running. ..URI was 57th, but still didn't make the Tourney's top 64.

GA plays Ohio State on Friday.

:) Go Criminoles!


Regional Action (these are only two of the 32 regional brackets):

Tallahassee, Florida...............................Norman, Oklahoma
1. Florida State....................................1. Oklahoma
2. Georgia
............................................2. Arkansas
3. Ohio State ........................................3. Washington State
4. Marist .................................................4. Wichita State

* Tallahassee winner will face Norman winner

Jerry, Texas is in everybody's top 10, and the Longhorns are favored to make it to the CWS. ..I haven't been following news, sports, weather... so it's anybody's guess as to how each team might fare. ..plus, it's baseball!

Smiles,
