    College World Series

    With the announcement of the teams in the tournament coming out over the weekend, I am getting excited for the CWS. Just seeing how many actually plan on coming to Omaha for some games/tailgating or even how many have made it in the past? It is a great time and I recommend making before they get rid of Rosenblatt here in a couple of years.

    Re: College World Series

    Mizzu is getting crapped on by the selection comittee, they deserve better than having to square off against the #1 seed. I thought it was interesting that they had most of the SoCal powers in the same super region as well as most of the Texas powers. Looks like the comittee was trying to FORCE parity, not a good idea...

    I noticed that this morning as I was filling out my bracket. They are definitely trying to spread out the field of 8 geographically this year.

    Re: College World Series

    I think college baseball is getting really close to being a money maker for alot of schools. Just about all of the conference tournaments were on National TV this year. I had alot of fun watching the flipping around with the MVC, Big XII, SEC, and ACC tournaments all on last week.

    I was very happy to see 6 Big 12 teams make it to the tourney. Highly unlikely, but a chance for 5 teams to make it to Omaha.

    Re: College World Series

    How does OU (9-17-1 Big 12, 34-24-1 overall) make it to the CWS, while BU (11-16-0 Big 12, 32-26 overall) does not? Seems like BU got robbed...

    Nebraska making it does ruin the atmosphere of the CWS, IMO. I hope LSU makes it. Those are some fun fans.

    Re: College World Series

    LSU fans rock. The Texas fans aren't bad either.

    As much as it pains me to say it, NU making it puts a lot of local flavor in the tournament, and makes it a little more fun.

    That's just my opinion. I could be wrong. </Dennis Miller>

    I have absolutely no idea... I didn't think either should have made it... Would have been fun to see K-State finish their run in the Big XII tournament and grab the automatic bid though!

    The Oklahoma invite is a head-scratcher - especially since the committee chose not to include 2-time defending champion Oregon State. The Beavers did not have that good of a year, but they had many more impressive wins than Oklahoma.

    Re: College World Series

    LSU is the hottest team in the country right now. I hope they can maintain it and get to Omaha. Down here, anything but a trip to Omaha makes the season a failure.

    What is interesting is that just a few short weeks ago the fans were starting to get a little concerned with Manieri (the second year head coach) because they were not playing very well and were mired in the lower half of the SEC with virtually no chance to make the NCAAs...then BOOM, they run off 20 straight (mostly against SEC teams) and get a top 8 seed which means they will not only host the regional but a super regional as well should they win their regional. Now Manieri is at genius status down here amongst the faithful. Fans are fickle everywhere!

    It is certainly good for LSU...they have sold about 7500 season tickets for the past several years but actual attendance this year has been averaging around 3000-3500...they need actual bodies in the seats...especially next year when they open up their new $30 million plus stadium.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
