    Two games in June don't change the results an entire spring. They're taking advantage of the break they got from the Selection Committee.

    Then again, maybe the Pac-10 wasn't as bad as everyone east of the Rockies made it out to be.

    Yeah, I shook my head when I saw that one, too.

    Now, on a personal note, I had always liked Oregon State. Never held anything against the Beavers -- until they whipped my Jayhawks 11-3 tonight. Dammit.

    From the Fullerton Regional.... University of San Diego 19, St. We're Just Glad to be Here Louis 12.

    And my Titans just laid waste to Raisin Fresno St., via 12 strikeouts by Wes Roemer -- Fullerton's No. 2.

    Fullerton's ace, Dustin Miller, awaits the survivor of the USD-Raisin St. game. A 9 p.m. PT start, which means nobody's making deadline.

    Going into the third day at various regionals, the Southeastern Conference has seen none of its 8 teams eliminated. :p
    The best baseball conference in the nation?
    Alabama, Ole Miss and South Carolina all have first-game byes at the sites today.
    The other 5 teams play early games.

    Co-champion Kentucky lost to Ball State in the first round. Co-champion Alabama needed a run in the bottom of the ninth to beat Troy 4-3 yesterday. Arkansas had to rally late to win. The same for Ole Miss two days in a row. The SEC has played fairly well but has hardly been dominant.

    That said, it wouldn't surprise me to see two or three SEC teams in Omaha.

    ACC is 12-2, with five teams at 2-0 and two others still alive. Having five teams get home regionals helps.

    Pac-10 is 6-2 with all four teams still alive, although three of the four are playing on the road. The two 2-0 teams are in the same bracket, however, and would meet in the SR if they both win their regionals.

    If you get home games, you should win a disproportionate amount.

    Kentucky, Vandy, Georgia and Mississippi State all winners today (MSU game not officially over yet).
    The SEC has all of its 8 entrants alive still.
    Really neat to watch. :-*

    Home hasn't helped Virginia. Last time I looked, the Cavaliers had six errors and were getting drilled by Evansville.

    Lots of interest in Charlottesviille in an Evansville-South Carolina title game.

    The biggest news out of the SEC in baseball this afternoon isn't these elimination games, but that Smoke Laval got fired (the school is saying resigned) at LSU. Who's next? Following Skip Bertman, with his five national titles and the absurdly high level of expectation in Baton Rouge, is probably not unlike those who have followed Bear Bryant and John Wooden.
