So wait, according to this "coach" our program is in steady decline, yet we are going to reload.
That does not sound like a steady decline. Sure we may take a step back this year because a lack of experience, but this "coach" even says our coaches can develop fundamentally sound players.

I get what you are saying, but if I am NC State I pitch my #3 guy in Friday game. Get the win and Rodon can start Game 1 of championship series. Lose Rodon throws on Saturday then again in Game 3 of Championship series.
If NC State follows that logic you throw Nola against Rodon.

If NC State wins tomorrow they have a game to play with so they save Rodon till the Saturday game. That is when Nola would pitch also. Don't see Nola coming back before then....

While I like the thread I think your thinking is flawed.
First off why not reseed 1-8 instead of just the two sides of the bracket.
Secondly, "Bertamns greenhorn theory" is that players needed to go to Omaha to get the experience and then return the following year or years to win it. By that ...
