    NCAA Baseball : Field of 64 Announced

    http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/...am-bracket.pdf

    D-I Baseball: 2009 Championship Bracket Announced - NCAA OFFICIAL ATHLETIC SITE

    National Seeds (Top 8)


    1. Texas
    2. Cal State Fullerton
    3. LSU
    4. North Carolina
    5. Arizona State
    6. UC Irvine
    7. Oklahoma
    8. Florida

    REGIONALS

    16 sites
    4 teams, seeded 1-4, double-elimination
    Each Regional is hosted by #1 Seed

    SUPER REGIONALS

    8 Sites
    2 teams, Best of 3

    COLLEGE WORLD SERIES (Omaha)

    8 teams
    Two 4-team double-elimination brackets
    Two bracket winners play Best of 3

    FINAL POLLS:

    Baseball America: NCAA Polls, College Sports Rankings, NCAA Sports Polls - ESPN
    USA Today / ESPN: NCAA Polls, College Sports Rankings, NCAA Sports Polls - ESPN



    I'm pumped because UC Irvine (#1 in both polls) and CS Fullerton are both hosting Regionals, about 20 miles apart here in Orange County. Irvine has an interesting draw - they open with defending National Champions Fresno State, and could play San Diego State (and likely #1 overall draft pick, pitcher Stephen Strasburg).

    Strasburg can sure throw the heat ... is he projected to be a starting pitcher or a closer in the big leagues?

    I would imagine he will be a starting pitcher, he has shown he can handle workloads in college.

    He's going to be a starter. He's looking at getting more than 20 million in his deal from the Nationals.

    Re: NCAA Baseball : Field of 64 Announced

    I thought that Irvine was the number 1 ranked team. If that's right they must not have a good SOS and RPI to get seeded 6th and draw LSU to make the CWS

    what a great field except a couple that won their conference tourneys that are from panzy conferences, plus a couple from power conferences that had a worse record overall. but you can't really prevent that consistently with the selection comittee. great job by the NCAA

    I think this committee did the best job seeding a NCAA tourney field in the last 5 years.

    Re: NCAA Baseball : Field of 64 Announced

    I take it back some of the choices they made are mind boggling. Oklahoma St wins just 2 big 12 series and they make it. Rice and LSU are 2 of the favorites and are matched up in the super regional. There are always questions and decisons that aren't popular but there were some decisons that were way off

    Re: NCAA Baseball : Field of 64 Announced

    Big 12 with 8 teams in, including every single Big 12 North school that fields a team... Thats pretty impressive...

    How can you say that? The Big 10/11 only got 3 teams in the field of 64 and the Big XII got 8 teams in..... How in the hell did that happen?

    Nebraska didn't get in.

    The state of Kansas getting 3 teams in the field is the most impressive thing to me. You definitely don't think of it as a hotbed, by any stretch of the imagination.

    The one big 12 team that got in that shouldn't have IMO was Oklahoma st.
