    how bout the Ole Miss guys with the bleached blonde hair? There were a lot more last year and the year before, but you'd swear the rednecks thought they lived in Southern California.

    Wild pitch by the Rebs misses everything, sails high overhead to the backstop

    Then ESPN shows a quick shot of fans emptying into the parking lot outside the stadium.
    Still 6-0 at stretch time.

    Are you speaking of Mississippians in general, or Ole Miss players?
    The roster shows 25 of the 40 kids are not from Mississippi.

    Boy, Oregon State is really taking it to Stanford, 10-0 in the fourth...
    How the hell did Stanford win a regional with NC State and Texas, anyway??? ???

    Blitz, I was talking about the players. I know Cozart has it and he's from Memphis. Last year, I know Coghlan, Osteen plus some others did. It's cool if you're from Pepperdine. Not so much in the SEC.

    Stanford was 0-5 against Oregon State this year and scored four total runs in 43 innings. Oregon State can pitch.

    Hoops? Georgia's bound for Omaha. None of those home runs Saturday did South Carolina any good Sunday or Monday.

    Also headed to the CWS are Rice, and in a few minutes, Miami, which will be the fourth ACC team to make it.

    I'm sorry, but there's one thing about the Four-Letter Network's coverage of college baseball that really rankles me.

    On the graphic showing a hitter's name, number and basic stats, why do they feel it necessary to list a player's favorite baseball player or rock band?

    Why are we better for knowing Oklahoma leadoff hitter Chuckie Caulfield's favorite player is Ken Griffey Jr.? Or that some player's favorite band is 3 Doors Down?

    That's the same treatment ESPN gives the freaking Little League World Series, and it's garbage. ESPN doesn't treat college football or basketball players like 12-year-olds, so why do they do it for baseball players?

    ACC advanced four of a possible six teams to the CWS.
    The Pac-10 was 1-for-3
    The SEC was 1-for-5
    The Big 12 was 0-for-5

    Now the ACC has to do something at Omaha, although that will be tough because they're paired against each other early.

    Be thankful or they will switch the categories to "Favorite EOE Series," "Best Catchphrase," "Most Texted Message Using ESPN Mobile"

    And that's only because the super-dooper power conference, the be-all, end-all of college baseball had two teams play each other.
    Now, all you SEC apologists, lemme hear you come up with the excuses...

    It's just like basketball -- the BCS conferences get the bids and lay turds, while the non-BCS teams get one team in. Hell, the Big Ten could have gone 0-for-5 like the Big 12 did. But the selection committee cant see past the ACC, SEC and Big 12...
    Rant over, thank you for listening
