  1. Who's your daddy?
     
  2. Wasn’t meant as a criticism of you for posting it. Just a caution to anyone taking it as anything close to an accurate representation of reality.

    D1 Baseball had released their preseason field of 64. Again, the NCAA will be assigning and pairing 16 national seeds without regard to geography this year. So it’ll be 1 vs 16, 2 vs 15, etc., in regionals. Higher-sees teams host supers if they advance as was the case in prior years.

    (1) Florida / (16) DBU
    (2) Oregon St / (15) CS Fullerton
    (3) Texas Tech / (14) Louisville
    (4) Florida St / (13) LSU
    (5) Arkansas / (12) Stanford
    (6) UNC / (11) Texas A&M
    (7) TCU / (10) Ole Miss
    (8) Kentucky / (9) UCLA

    Other TCU opponents in the projected field:
    2-seeds: Texas, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Vanderbilt, Rice
    3-seeds: Long Beach St
    4-seeds: Grand Canyon

    That’s 6 games vs their projected Regional hosts and another 17 vs tournament teams. 9 of those on the road (though 3 at 4-seed GCU), 1 neutral, and 7 home. Would be a recipe for a good RPI, though I’d like to see the Big 12 get a 6th team in.

    The projected TCU Regional is TCU, (2) Mississippi State, (3) Sam Houston State, (4) Grambling State. It is paired With the Ole Miss Regional with Ole Miss, (2) South Alabama, (3) Miami. (4) Stetson.
     
  4. scheiss Ole Miss
     
  5. Dear Eight Pound, Six Ounce, Newborn Baby Jesus, in your golden, fleece diapers, with your curled-up, fat, balled-up little fists pawin' at the air, please let this regional/regional pairing happen!

    My family in MS already hates me enough after that Peach Bowl azz kicking. They'd REALLY hate me if the road to Omaha went thru MSU and Ole Miss.

  6. So that kind of answers a question for me: As we scout our first opponent, GCU isn’t a complete pushover?
     
  7. No. They are very new to d1 baseball but have jumped big time to win and win a lot at this level. (In football this woulda been called a no win situation type game. No credit if you win and all the fault for losing to a ‘nobody. Baseball is much more RPI driven so not as valid)

  8. GCU is a ncaa regional team for sure...Frogs will face a potential very high draft pick on Friday in Jake Wong...GCU is opening a new ballpark and expecting over 5,000 fans....
     
  9. Not sure I’d say “for sure” as the WAC is almost certainly a 1-bid league. A slip in their conference tournament could spell trouble. Don’t think their squad is quite as strong this year as the top 2/3 of the Big 12. Definitely going to be a tougher environment than our fans would expect.

    Last year the Antelopes started the season winning a series vs Oklahoma State (though that was the high point - final RPI was 133). Also swept a 2-game midweek series vs Tech in 2015

    For those that don’t know, GCU won the D2 national champsuonship then went straight into the 4-year D1 transition. This is the first year they are eligible for D1 postseason.
     
  10. NC State and aTm in the same postseason? Only way it could be better would be to add Pepperdine and Sam Houston State to the regional

  11. Ha! That Pepperdine series took 5 years off my life.

  12. I feel that way about most of the recent regionals and supers.
     
  13. For the experts on here..... if I get home at 8pm tonight, is there any way to watch ESPN3 from the beginning? Or do I have to wait until the game ends and watch the replay?
     
  14. You could watch tomorrow...the game is Friday.:oops:

  18. I was nervous seeing him on deck. Glad we got that game ending strike out to not give him a chance.

  19. Rotation:
    Janczak
    Lodolo
    Wymer

    GCU’s ace going Friday to open the season and their brand new stadium.
