    Yep....also beat UNC, the 2 seed. UF will most likely have to burn Shore in game 1 as opposed to saving him for game 2

    Miami HC Jim Morris - "It doesn't make sense." I agree. UF should have gotten Cal Poly and TCU should have gotten Miami. UF should have been the 1 national seed.

    Oregon State vs. Oklahoma State is ok because Oregon State shouldn't have been higher than the 5 national seed.

    ESPN interview with selection committee member - There were 5 teams considered for the last 3 national seeds:

    Louisiana Lafayette
    TCU
    LSU
    Vanderbilt
    Rice

    How could the committee not have considered Miami and Oklahoma State on the board for the last 3 national seeds?

    We got screwed. One if C O C's starters (Ober) is 9-2 with a 1.37 ERA. We'll have to burn Shore and hope that we can scratch and claw a couple of runs home. Miami's regional draw is much easier. Strange.

    Its as if the committee begrudgingly gave the Gators a '#2', for SEC and SoS, but didn't want a 20+ loss team without a superstar going far in their tourney.
    We'll see. Maybe it motivates the guys. As we've seen, they can get beat by mediocre when they aren't focused.

    I wonder what the regions would look like just adding the RPIs of 2 and 3 seeds.

    A separate column isolating the 4 seeds with the hosts would be interesting/informative as well.

    I'll tackle the job when I get the chance if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

    Before seeing the info, my feeling is the selection committee had an agenda and did a poor job based on the records.

    Wow, does the NCAA committee hate us or something? That regional is pretty tough to say we are the No.2 national seed.

    The only player in college baseball that could actually drive ratings is Carlos Rodon, and his team didn't make the tournament.

    You really think Carlos Rodon is that well known? I follow college baseball and haven't heard anything about him other than the year they came here for the Super Regional.
    I would think Jameis Winston would drive ratings more than Carlos Rodon.

    Good call on Jameis. You're definitely right about that.

    As far as players who are known just for baseball, it's Rodon by a mile just because he's been pegged as the #1 pick in the draft for 3 years running. There's a pretty large contingent of fans out there who only pay attention to college baseball for draft purposes.

    Once again when it comes to baseball, seedings are meaningless, even RPI. Its all about regional matchups. At this point, just need to take advantage of the home field. Lot of pitching depth, especially with Whitson added to the mix. Shore in game 1.

    From the story on Baseball America:

    (Farrell is on the committee)

    “All of the brackets are put together with the principle of trying to limit the amount to travel that occurs for the three teams that have to go there,” Farrell said. “Both of those regionals, you have the fourth seed that is a driving team to both Gainesville and Coral Gables. The No. 2 and 3 seeds in both of those regionals are flying. That being said, we also try to balance the competitiveness of each of the regionals as much as possible, so we look at the combined RPI of the three teams that are seeded 1, 2 and 3. In this case, the Coral Gables bracket has combined RPI of 67. Gainesville has a combined RPI of 72. That’s for the 1, 2 and 3 seeds, not the 4 seeds.”

    The Gators-Hurricanes super regional pairing is also stale, but Farrell pointed out that those two teams have not been paired in the last two years. The committee tried to avoid repeating matchups from the last two years and mostly succeeded, avoiding Louisville/Vanderbilt, Clemson/South Carolina and Texas A&M/TCU, for instance. Alabama will head to Tallahassee for the second year in a row, however.
