    wish they would mix it up with the regional pairings, gainesville-coral gables is tired. but, with so many SEC teams hosting this year I get that there aren't many other options to avoid same conference match-ups. gainesville-houston might be cool.

    In searching the net this morning I have seen people have us anywhere from a seed to a 6 seed.

    And do they all have us paired with Miami regardless of the seed?

    I think Miami, Louisville, Ok St and Rice are all possible matchups

    I do like most of the projected opponents in UF's regional. Haven't seen too many scary 2-3 seeds listed.

    I hope you're right. I have an uncomfortable feeling they could send Cal State Fullerton our way.

    You never know. Somebody will have to go to LSU...assume Rice or Ok St., but maybe they get the Canes. FSU gets Lville or hopefully an SEC school like Vandy or SC.
    Will be interesting to see how it plays out

    In looking at a lot of projections, Kentucky seems to be the likely 2 seed at Louisville....and I think they could easily win that regional. Not sure I want them as a super regional match the way they swing it.
    Would like to see FSU get a good SEC team as a 2 seed (like Kentucky or Arky) and then get USC in supers

    I think the pairing with Louisville makes sense (especially potentially putting Kentucky in our path).

    Baseball tournament is a lot like women's hoops in that they don't want to ship too many teams (except the directional and low major schools who don't attract fans) too far from home. There won't be many decent intersectional matchups in regionals anytime in the near future.

    Of course the committee gives FSU an easy bracket.

    Gainesville (College of Charleston, NC, Long Beach State) matched with Miami

    FSU gets Louisville

    Vandy gets Indiana

    What did we do wrong? College of Charleston beats Bethune Cookman three times. Miami gets BCC and we get College of Charleston.

    This may be a blessing. This team is much more focused and plays much better against better teams.

    A seemingly gimme opponent would be dangerous for us.
