    The team I cover is the dictionary definition of a bubble team. Can't wait for noon to roll around tomorrow to get on with it.

    And I don't know about you, but nothing screams college baseball atmosphere like Gary, Indiana!

    Purdue has to play in Gary as Purdue's ballpark has the amenities of your joe-average city softball diamond ... without the lights. Indy, Fort Wayne and South Bend were all unavailable. Boilers will have new ballpark next year. One year late as it turned out.

    Doesn't Gary have a nice, fairly new Indy ballpark?

    It does ... in the middle of one of the most bombed-out downtowns in the U.S.

    I just did a Google maps image of it. I'm going to die.

    I think Big Ten baseball might actually drop property values.

    Still hoping Utah Valley gets a bid.

    Five ACC regional hosts. Three SEC regional hosts. Judging by well, pretty much every NCAA baseball tournament ever, that's a little off.

    But keeping with the fine tradition of overseeding the ACC.
     
  10. I thought Kentucky and Miami should probably have been flipped, and apparently so do a lot of others. Seems like Kentucky fans are pretty incensed about that.

    Admittedly, if Kentucky hadn't damn near lost out, it would have had an even better argument.
     
  12. The Wildcats' non-conference schedule was pretty week, too. Still thought what they did in SEC play merited hosting a regional. It was, what, two weeks ago that most were talking about them as a potential national seed?
