The last time the Beavers were in Omaha was 2007. A few things that happened that year...and this year:
  • In 2007, #1 seed Vanderbilt was upset at home (by Michigan). As a result, Oregon State did not face Vandy that year and in fact hosted Michigan in the super regional. This year #2 seed Vandy was upset at home by Louisville. As a result, Oregon State will not face the Commodores in the 2-3-6-7 bracket in Omaha.
  • Louisville made its first ever trip to Omaha in 2007. They are making their second trip this year.
  • The last time Mississippi State was in the CWS was...2007. This is their first trip back since then.
  • Florida State was upset at home (by MSU) in 2007. FSU was upset at home this year by Indiana.
  • Virginia lost at home in 2007 (to Oregon State) and did not advance. This year they lost at home and did not advance.
  • North Carolina beat South Carolina in the Chapel Hill super in three games in both 2007 and 2013.
  • In 2007, Oregon State thrashed North Carolina in the championship series in two games by a combined score of 20-7. In 2013...?

If the term were initialized as HIO, then the plural would be HIOs. And there are many institutions that don't pluaralize those abbreviations at all, as you note: 5 RBI. That is acceptable, as you see that with SI notation: 3 mm, 5 ohm, 25 kg, 5 oz. No difference between singular and plural. But I view initialisms and acronyms differently, and I add the s for plurals. 2 TVs, four DVDs, 3 RBIs, etc.

For "HIOs" you have to remember the "thing" is the hole, not the one. Holes becomes the plural, not ones. Like sisters-in-law, attorneys-general.

Sorry for boring everyone. Now back to baseball.

It's funny ya'll are talking about hole's in one (did I say it right). I played last saturday morning before tailgating for the LSU game and came the closest I have ever come to getting one. My ball was 10 inches from the pin. I was bragging all week to my brother about it. Then I see this couple hit them back to back. Put me back in my place.

Also, sorry to use the term "ya'll" in a thread where such grammar excellence is being discussed.
