  1. I guess I am being pessimistic, but I don’t see the Canes’ team doing much again this year. I am not a baseball fan at all, but just look at our record and how we have done against teams most people have actually heard of – not very well. I hope I am wrong but the team hasn’t had much pop in the last few years against the Big Boys.

    1. John – Hard to disagree, but the biggest difference between college football and baseball is the parity, as well as the ability to get hot at the right time. Look what Georgia Tech just did in the ACC Championship. Needed to win the last game of the regular season just to make the tourney, got in as the eight-seed, went 4-0, beat some big team and won the conference tourney.

      I wouldn’t bet anything on Miami to get to Omaha, but getting out of this regional is more than doable and then from there, it’s all about winning 2-of-3 … which anyone can do on any given weekend when you get down to that final thirty-two and are talking about quality baseball programs that know how to win.

  2. Canes lucked out big time. The team should win the regional – I don’t think UCF will spoil anything – and the opponent in the super regional will be from the #7 national seed, rather than how we were seemingly playing the Gators every year the last three years.

    Certainly not any easy route back to Omaha, but it could have been much worse. Up to Morris and the team to come through.

    1. Miami definitely lucked out, but after getting stuck in Gainesville the last handful of seasons, dodging the No. 1 team in the Super Regionals … it’s a lucky bounce the Canes deserved this time around.

  3. Are the regionals still “bid” sites. Used to be, which used to mean that the school who wanted to spend the $$$$$ got to host.

    Just asking – don,t know the current situation.

    1. Ken, not sure the deal, but even by that rationale you would think the majority of schools would pony up money, but the NCAA would still have to take the best of the best. There are sixty-four teams and sixteen hosts — you’re saying that the other forty-eight teams wouldn’t have done all they could to get a bid, if that were the case? What school doesn’t have the money and wouldn’t pony it up to host a regional, then? Still comes down to ranking, RPI and conference.
