re: Looks like the fact the NCAA thinks so highly of Florida got us the seed - twk
[quote]aTm should have had the 1. I would have given Florida 2 or 3.[/quote] I wasn't expecting A&M to get the one seed, but I sort of thought they would give it to an ACC seed since the SEC got four national seeds. Frankly, with the lack of luck #1 seeds have had, UF can have it. Pretty satisfied w...

[quote]So what would happen if the Grizzlies were to go deep into the NBA playoffs and it occurred the same week as the baseball tourney?

[quote]It is a fluke that the west coast is so down this year.[/quote] True. But, even in a good year, folks on the West coast just don't give a rip. They won't go to games, or watch them on TV. Too many other things to do out there. It's a different world....

re: The latest from Norman. - twk
[quote]It's SEC or bust for these guys, and they aren't concerned about the Grant of Rights, as they believe the boosters can more than make up for the gut punch if and when they leave. Not to mention the revenue they believe they can generate locally. [/quote] It's not just a matter of OU forego...

re: Should Hoover lose the tournament? - twk
Having a tournament in a suburban ballpark, in order to please the folks who live within a 2 or 3 hour drive and want to take their RV, is some really weird thinking. Why on earth do we need to play the tournament at a place that is RV friendly rather than geared towards fans who fly in and would li...

re: NCAA Regional Host Thread; Super Predictions - twk
[quote]Again, the committee DOES NOT seed the teams 9 through 16. Geography is often the biggest factor in super regional pairings. So it is possible, though I would tend to think ULL would be a decent bet to go to A&M. [/quote] We're all thinking that A&M gets paired with TCU. If they don't do...

[quote]Is anyone else a little annoyed that they're still considered a lock and we probably have to win the tourney, after we've beaten them 3/4 times within a week?

[quote]Dat midweek game for A&M though[/quote] I hate losing Tuesday games, but Sam Houston is no chump -- they are 44 in the RPI and will probably get an at large bid even if they don't win the Southland Tournament.

re: So who gets screwed on not getting a National baseball seed. - twk
My prediction, as of today: 1. Louisville 2. Florida 3. Miami 4. A&M 5. USC 6. Texas Tech 7. Mississippi State 8. Virginia Yes, the first five are RPI chalk. I think the first four are a given, though the order could change. MSU is a lock, but may not be seeded all that high, given the ...

re: So who gets screwed on not getting a National baseball seed. - twk
[quote]LSU had an RPI of 9 before taking 2/3 from the Number 1 team in Country so will be top 7 this week[/quote] Didn't work out quite that good for LSU, at 9 in the official RPI (up from 12). This late in the season, adding Florida's SOS to your figures doesn't change much, and winning 2/3 at home...

[quote]i like lsu getting a regional because of the revenue[/quote]LSU might end up hosting, but it won't be because of money. For all the shite the committee takes (most of it deserved), they have pretty much stopped considering bids (as long as they meet the minimums) when selecting host sites. The...

re: #5 Vandy 0 | #2 A&M 3 - Ags take series 2-1 with a No-No Game 3 - twk
Besides the short rest issues, Vines, who was the number 2 starter, has lost his spot in the rotation, so it just made sense to do the Larkins experiment in game 1. Went fairly well. We might also see Tyler Ivey resurface--he has apparently been battling shoulder issues. The one thing we really nee...
