Congrats to my Tigers for being selected to host a super-regional against Florida State. I must admit to being somewhat ambivalent about playing Florida State, and their venerable head coach, Mike Martin. I had the opportunity to meet with Coach Martin when Florida State entertained the Tigers. He's been the Florida State Seminoles head baseball coach for approximately 45 years. Despite his long career, and a bevy of College World Series appearances, Coach Martin has never won a college world series. I'd really like to see him win one, even if it is at our expense, because he's one of the realaly good guys in college baseball.

Florida State destroyed a pretty good field in the regional. They do not look like a #3 regional seed. On paper, LSU should beat them. 'Course that's not where the game is played.

Once FSU destroyed #4 overall seed Georgia, LSU at a #13 was the only overall seed left in the pair of regionals, so they get the super-regional in Baton Rouge.

UConn and Oklahoma State are dukeing it out in a pitcher's duel. It is 1-1 in the bottom of the fifth.

Michigan has come back to take the lead against Creighton 5-4 in the bottom of the fourth.

East Carolina leads the Campbell Camels 6-3 in the bottom of the fifth.

Oklahoma State defeats Creighton 3-1 and will travel to Lubbock to face Texas Tech in the super-regional. Unfortunately, the only two Big XII teams left in the tournament will face each other.

East Carolina leads the Campbell Camels 8-3 in the bottom of the eighth much to the consternation of the country's onomatopoets. The winner will travel to Louisville to face the Cardinals in the super-regional.

Michigan defeats Creighton 17-6. They will play the winner of the UCLA vs LMU game currently tied at two in the bottom of the third.

With UCLA's defeat of LMU and Stanford's win over Fresno State we have our last regional champs.

The seeding held out pretty well as 12 of the 16 national seeds won their regional. The twelve regional #1 seeds are joined by three #3 seeds and one #2. Here are the match-ups:

#1 UCLA hosts Michigan
#8 Texas Tech hosts #9 Oklahoma State
#5 Arkansas hosts #12 Ole Miss
#13 LSU hosts Florida State
#2 Vanderbilt hosts Duke
#7 Louisville hosts #10 East Carolina
#6 Mississippi State hosts #11 Stanford
#14 North Carolina hosts Auburn

Some great baseball coming up with the super-regionals June 7-10. The CWS will begin on June 15 in Omaha.

Louisville is crushing ECU. The Cardinals lead the Pirates 14-1 through seven innings. Louisville has racked up the impressive score without benefit of a home run.

Next up: Red Raiders vs Cowboys.

Duke vs Vanderbilt is in a rain delay in Nashville.

Duke crushes Vanderbilt 18-5.

Two HUGE upsets by #3s beating #1s. In this case, the overall national #1 and #2 seeds went down to game 1 defeats.

Both Vanderbilt and UCLA will play for their tournament lives Saturday along with ECU and OSU. Conversely, Louisville, Texas Tech, Michigan, and Duke will play to get to the Promised Land: Omaha, Nebraska.

A full eight games tomorrow as the other bracket gets active.

Arkansas beats Ole Miss 11-2. Razorbacks play for Omaha tomorrow.

Louisville pitcher Bobby Miller took a No-No into the ninth inning but gave up a base hit to the lead off hitter. Louisville still destroys ECU 12-0 and gets their ticket punched to Omaha.

Fun fact: LSU baseball averages 1000 more in attendance per game than the Miami Marlins.

Auburn upsets North Carolina 11-7.

Thank you for this thread.

Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.

Duke is really surprising me. I didn't see this coming at all.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Guy from FSU just absolutely obliterated a ball over the bleachers and off the building behind them to tie their game at LSU 4-4.  This also happens to be the anniversary of Warren Morris's HR to win the CWS.

I don't think anybody did.

Speaking of not seeing it coming: Florida State just tied LSU at 4. They're in the middle of the seventh.

Florida State upsets LSU 6-4.

Every lower seed has won their first game. Auburn as a #2; Michigan, Florida State, and Duke as #3s.
