    Arkansas takes on Oklahoma, needing just one victory out of two to advance to their first super-regionals since 2004.

    Strasburg and SDSU are one loss away from elimination, but tons of other talented pitching to watch--Arizona State and stud Mike Leake are likely to advance, Kansas State and A.J. Morris likely to advance, LSU and Louis Coleman a good bet, Danny Bilbona and UC Irvine in the same boat as SDSU.

    Go Hogs!

    IU is gone, after losing to Louisville and Vandy in the Regional. Not at all suprising. Big Ten baseball is such a joke.

    Some of the Big Ten schools don't even have teams, right? I know Sconnie doesn't.

    Is there a reason for that? It's weird that a school of like 50,000 can't field a 9 gent baseball team.

    It's weird too because UW Milwaukee has the only D-1 baseball school in the state and there's a number of really pretty great D-2, D-3 baseball schools in Wisconsin (Ripon, St. Norbert, Oshkosh, etc).

    Madison used to have a team as recently as the 80's. I have no idea why they stopped fielding a team.

    Does it have anything to do with Title IX? They may have decided to nix the baseball program for men in order to add another D-I Mens team in another sport without having to add a womens team as well..?

    That's possible--I tried to google it and found nothing.

    In other news: Hogs beat Cal State Fullerton 10-6! Upset city, baby!

    Coach Dave Van Horn's first CWS win in 7 tries. :sausage:

    They'll face the winner of LSU-Virginia who play at 6 pm tonight. You might consider watching that ballgame to see our #1 pick in action.

    Indeed. Title IX is the exact reason why Wisconsin doesn't have a baseball team. There's actually a lot of top tier athletic colleges that are sans baseball.

    Watching Mitchell right now.

    Cal State Fullerton (#2 seed in the country) is eliminated by Virginia.

    Arkansas is playing LSU (to whom the Razorbacks have lost 2 of 3) in a half hour. Loser will play Virginia to see which team has to beat the winner of tonight's game twice in a row.

    LSU's up 3-1 after a first inning 3-run homer not-by-Jared-Mitchell.

    Jared had a solid gapper double though later in the inning. HE did not score.

    Saw that. It was a shot off the wall in left center (opposite field). That ball was hit harder than any ball in Jerry Owens career. He has a nice quiet approach, not alot of movement which is good. I think he has a lot of K's because he takes EVERYTHING and always gets in the hole real quick. But those are things that are very easily correctable. He has a great eye, though, which is harder to teach.

    He looked good in nearly every plate appearance. I think he had 3 hits if i'm not mistaken.

    Sadly, the Hogs lost :frown:

    An unreal game tonight between the Razorbacks and the Cavaliers just ended. There was a nice little interview with Jared Mitchell in the 2nd inning. Of course that was 5 hours ago.

    Arkansas trailed 3-1 going into the top of the ninth. Got a runner on with 2 strikes and 2 outs and their CF, Brett Eibner, who hasn't homered in over a month tied it up with a shot to left field.

    In the bottom of the ninth, Virginia got the bases loaded with one out. Dallas Keuchel, Arkansas's pitcher and a 7th round pick for Houston, went 3-0, got a gift strike call to make it 3-1 and then surrendered a hard ground ball to a drawn in infield. It was hit so hard the SS couldn't handle it, but it bounced right to him and he fed a lighthning fast DP-ball to keep hopes alive.

    In the bottoms of the 10th and 11th the same thing happened more or less--Virginia got RISP's with 1 out and UA pitched out of it.

    Then UA got a run in the top of the 12th to go up 4-3. Sure enough, bottom of 12, Virginia gets the leadoff runner on with a double. And sure enough, Arkansas strands him to win and advance to the final four where they'll have to beat LSU twice in a row or else go home.

    On the other side of the bracket, ASU plays UNC in the equivalent of tonight's game to see who faces top seed Texas tomorrow at 6.

    Yeah---for a long time I was confused....

    But it's pretty straightforward once you actually find out how they do it.

    First round of the tournament is group play, double elimination. Only one team advances from 16 groups of four.

    Second round is 8 best of three series. Those eight teams advance to the College World Series.

    First round of CWS is group play--two groups of four, double elimination, one team from each group advances.

    Championship game is best of 3, winner is National Champ.


    An odd format, to be sure, but one that's straightforward once you figure out wtf is going on. Right now there are five teams left in the first round of the CWS. After tonight's game there will be 4 teams left, as either ASU or UNC will be eliminated.

    I saw his first AB in the game today when he walked. The announcers were talking about how he has a big-league temperament as far as charisma and dealing with the media right now to go along with his solid game. I like this kid.

    It does seem odd. The stadium looked perfectly fine on TV and unlike MLB stadiums you can't just assume they're doing it b/c they want more luxury boxes.

    I'm sure they have a good reason though.

    Is the other stadium already built??

    I saw a piece on ESPN and it made it seem that the NCAA Tournament is moving from Omaha as well. Or is that just a result of a need to move in the meantime?

    Jared Mitchell just hit a missle 3 run bomb to RF to put LSU up 3-0 with 2 outs on a 2-2 count. And he was screaming/pumping up his teammates once getting into the mob of his teammates after the HR by their dugout, so he's definitely got the fire, the passion, and the swaggar.
