If Vandy goes 0-2 and LSU sweeps then Vandy will be 48-9 and LSU will be 52-8. I would be a little surprised if LSU didn't take over the #1 spot.
ETA: as long as they are #1 and #2 and in different brackets (if they both make it to Omaha) then I will be happy....

[quote]Top 3 national seeds make it to Omaha more than seeds 4-8 make it[/quote]That is because the top 3 seeds are typically better than the 4-8 seeds. Ranking isn't an exact science, so there are always errors. However, I would rather be the #1 seed playing the #8 than the #4 having to play the ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: North Carolina loses series to GT - eelsuee on 5/12/13 at 6:32 pm|
I don't want LSU and Vandy to be in the same bracket if they both make it to Omaha, keep alive the chance for an all SEC final. I would also prefer Vandy and UNC be in one bracket with LSU in the other, but that is looking unlikely. What hopefully happens is UNC drops a few more games and gets the...

Reed is the best. He could take over a game as a WR while playing opposite of a true freshman. Of course that FR was Michael Clayton, but Reed made him look better than he actually was his freshman season....

I agree with most of the advice so far. Get one ASAP if you are smart/responsible enough to not run up debt. I would recommend starting with a simple rule, gas purchases only. This gives you some purchases every month and makes it much harder to justify throwing a few extra things in the buggy wh...
