Cal State Fullerton is looking at extinction. AP has an RPI of 123 or something like that. We need to beat them convincingly.

Yeah, surprising collapse by the Titans. And Austin Peay has played very well. They should be playing Oregon tonight from the winner's bracket, but they could still upend the Ducks.

Fresno State was up on Pepperdine 5-2 going into thee 9th, but the Waves have scored 6 in the 9th, including a grand slam, and still have no outs. 8-5 Pepperdine.

Not a surprise, but South Carolina is the first to win a regional, defeating Clemson 4-3.

St. John leads UNC 5-4 in the bottom of the 6th. The Heels have to win tonight and tomorrow to survive their own regional.

St. John and Stony Brook, the two Northern cinderellas of this postseason, are leading in their respective games tonight. The johnnies will advance with an upset regional victory over #6 seed UNC if they hold on, leading 7-4 in the b7th.

Stony Brook up 7-2 on UCF in the t6th. They'll have to face UCF again tomorrow if they hold on to win tonight.

8-0, top 8. Ducks playing well. Reed pitching a two hit shut out through 7. Pretty uneventful game. But I like them that way. If we finish it off, just two wins away from a CWS appearance. I am pretty stoked!!

UNC becomes first national seed to bite the dust, losing to St. John (who will unfortunately get eaten alive by Arizona).

Looks like Arizona gets to host their regional as well. The beavs are the long shot right now, but would be really cool to see all the pac teams make it to their respective supers, and host at home.

Changed this from the day three surprises topic, but then I thought of some other things that qualify as surprises (that fans should celebrate):

Amazing run of the small conference teams!

American East: Stony Brook is 3-1 in the Coral gables regional and has outscored their opponents 40-23, beating Miami, Missouri State, and Central Florida. Their lone loss was a 9-8 affair to UCF, whom they play tomorrow for the championship. If they win, they head to Baton Rouge, a tough venue. But this is the little engine that could.

Mid-American: Kent State battled Kentucky, whom many thought were on the cusp of being sent to Miami as a traveling #1 but entered the Gary regional as a #2, to a 21-inning 7-6 victory, then beat host Purdue the next day after that marathon game, and beat UK again to sweep the Gary regional.

Big East: Louisville ran into the Arizona slaughterhouse, but fellow BE team St. John went into what everyone called the easiest regional and a gift to North Carolina as a 3 seed and emerged with a 3-0 sweep. The Johnnies beat East Carolina, a very low 2 seed in most experts' opinions, then dispatched host and national seed UNC twice to biunce them from their own regional.

Independent: Dallas Baptist is not done yet, but they have a chance to steal the Waco regional from host and national 4 seed Baylor.

SoCon: Because all games were rain-delayed a day in the Charlottesville regional, this one is not yet decided. But Appalachian State has already beaten host Virginia (eliminated) and Oklahoma. The Sooners will have to beat the Mountaineers twice, but App State only needs one more win. The three SoCon teams have a 5-4 record so far.

There are some people who think the "undeserving teams" should not get auto bids or even be in post season play. The results this weekend should put that debate to rest. If the small conference schools do not get the expierence in tournament play, they will never get the oportunity to shine & progress, as we have seen this weekend.

ASU, that's the position 2Bulldogs was taking on Rivals, as you probably are aware. Notice the updated list at the top of this thread...the red teams that upset the #1 seeds. Two of those stand out for me:
  • Kent State was a 3 seed and beat a highly rated (but suspect) 1 seed in Purdue and also a nearly-selected host team and 2 seed Kentucky. I don't think they'll fare as well in Eugene, but they would not have had a chance under 2BD's proposal. Good for the Golden Flashes.
  • The biggest surprise and now my favorite underdog is 4 seed Stony Brook. (If Oregon State had managed to beat LSU, I would not favor the Seawolves, but I'm their biggest fan this weekend.) They scored 50 RUNS in five games in the Coral Gables regional. If they can average that in Baton Rouge, they have a chance to take it in three games and make it to the College World Series. How great would that be?
Appalachian State failed to advance, but they acquitted themselves well. And Dallas Baptist just missed it again. Honorable mention to Austin Peay, finishing second in the Eugene regional ahead of Fullerton and Indiana State.

I would also add Sam Houston State to the Honorable Mention List for finishing second in the Rice regional ahead of Rice and Prairie View A & M.
