    More SEC wackiness tonight.
    Kentucky wipes out Florida 14-1, putting Florida, South Carolina and Vanderbilt back into a three-way tie atop the East.
    Mississippi State walks off LSU to eliminate the Tigers, and Auburn wins to clinch a spot.
    Ole Miss and Arkansas were rained out and will play a doubleheader Saturday.
    So we're now down to three teams playing for two spots -- the winner of the Ole Miss-Arkansas series is assured of one -- and the only team locked into a given spot is Georgia at No. 4.
    It's gonna be a fun Saturday.

    Quite the night of Big12 baseball Friday; Texas, OU, OSU, K-State win; all trailed at one point. Three 1-run games, other decided by 2 runs. Two games with rain delays.

    Texas victory over A&M clinches top seed in Big 12 touney for Longhorns.

    Missouri beat Nebraska 10-5 in a game that started at 6:30 Thursday and ended at 3:20 Friday because of rain. Tigers victory eliminates Nebraska from Big 12 tourney. Last spot in 8-team bracket between Texas Tech, Kansas State, Kansas. KU needs to win next two games against K-State to get in.

    Nebraska misses the Big 12 tournament for the third straight year -- steep fall from making successive CWS trips not that long ago. If Anderson even makes it to next season, he pretty much needs to win the Big 10.

    If Florida wins and Vandy holds an 8-run lead, they'll match South Carolina at 22-8 for the SEC East and overall title.

    If Mississippi can hold on against Arkansas and LSU can hold on against Mississippi State, we'll have the five-way tie for the SEC West title, with all five below .500 (14-16).

    Virginia may be getting an early start. The Cavs got swept at UNC this week. The UVa fan I sleep next to would be thrilled with a trip to Omaha. Everything else would be gravy.

    Didn't happen....Ark and Ole Miss split.
    Still not sure who won the West but it's safe to say Arkansas has had the best season of all the squads.
    South Carolina wins the East and is the overall conference champ.

    Hogs win the West and the bogus 2 seed that goes with it.

    Arkansas swept the doubleheader, knocking Ole Miss out. Still haven't seen how the final seedings shook out, but I know Ole Miss and LSU (which was eliminated last night) are the odd men out.

    Bad news at the SEC baseball tourney, Cosmo!
    The Bulldogs lost after a grand salami homer by Florida
    Also, Arkansas lost to Alabama
    Auburn lost to South Carolina
    Georgia is favored to lose while playing Vanderbilt tonight.

    Some craziness early in the CUSA Tournament. UAB hits Rice with an early 9-1 lead and hangs on to win 9-8. Houston scores five in the top of the ninth to upend East Carolina 8-5.

    Southern Miss up 5-0 on Tulane in a game that just started about 20 minutes ago. We're hoping (praying?) for USM to 10-run the Wave so we might have a slim chance of actually getting it in our paper.

    From here, it looks like Southern, Rice and ECU are battling to host a regional. UCF may need to get to Saturday's final to ensure itself of an NCAA bid and everybody else (Memphis, Houston, Tulane, UAB) has to win the tournament to play beyond this week.

    Georgia got run-ruled by Vandy, meaning Day 1 in Hoover ended before 10 local time. That is the true sign of the pending rapture.

    Since the NCAA now requires above .500 records for an at-large bid, Auburn-Georgia is now an elimination game.
