Just So's Ya' know

Only 5 of the top 8 teams are SEC schools right now.

Dammit!

Pretty much, lets hope that O'Sullivan stays at Florida. Texas doesn't need the Mack Brown of college baseball. It has been fun watching ESECPN eat crow over their all SEC/ACC CWS predictions.

I'm now a Coastal Carolina fan! At least for the next few days.

Thats the beauty of baseball, anything can happen. Arizona was just as much of a Cinderella story as Coastal. The so called experts had predicted an 8th place finish in the PAC for the Wildcats preseason.
With the scholarship advantages that private and small public schools supposedly have in baseball I would expect to continue to see this happen often.

What scholarship advantage at a private school?
At USC a player with half a scholarship will still be on the hook for 21,000 dollars a year. My son had half a.scholarship for baseball at Stanford, that left me with a 9,800 dollar ballance on his first half a year of college, he transferred home after an auto accident his first Fall away at college.
A player with have a scholarship to UCLA is on the hook for 6,800 dollars, half a scholarship to Cal State Fullerton leaves a balance of 2,700 dollars

so 2,700 dollars to be a Titan
6,800 dollars to be a Bruin
Or 21,000 dollars to be a Trojan.

The advantage lies with the cheap schools, not the private schools

give baseball programs 30-40 scholarships so they can cover their rosters

Definitely, the private school advantage would be the ability to create academic scholarships targeted at baseball players. It has been rumored that the likes of Miami, Vanderbilt and Rice practice this. Since they are private this can go unreported.

While this is partially possible it isn't nearly as wide spread as you might think.

However close to 60% of Rice students get some sort of scholarship or grants. So many on the baseball team do as well. In fact two players this season have full rides based on combinations of academic scholarships and grants. That allows the 11 full scholarships to be split among fewer players. However if 100% of the baseball team had full rides the Conf and NCAA would chime in real quick.

After LSU got pounded by OSU in their first meerting, I didn't have much hope, but LSU took it to 'em this weekend.

As glad as I am to see LSU playing for it all, the umpiring behind the plate in that last game was as bad as I've ever seen. Beaver hitters didn't know what to swing at! And the guy was terribly inconsistent with his calls.

We had the same ump with the same strike zone and did just fine. It didn't stop us from going yard a few times. Good teams adjust. They didn't. They're home now.

The end.

Yeah, you'd have thought they'd have realized at some point he was calling that waaaay outside pitch a strike.

Oh well...

I turned the final game off after that LSU runner was sent back to 3rd on the double play ball in the 7th.

Didn't know 'til this morning what happened.

That horribly botched foul call in Game 2 quite possibly changed the outcome of the series. Also, the strike zone (Game 3) was very inconsistent. But, like you said, LSU adjusted. And ended the best regular season a team has ever had.

And watching Beaverfan cry is OK in my book.
