    WHO DO YOU HAVE?

    I’ll say:

    Game 4–MSU

    When it’s all said and done I think Vandy retains it’s title.

    Hard to bet against that Vandy pitching staff, all 8 teams are playing great to be there. Haven't seen Texas, Arizona & Stanford that much to effectively evaluate them, but Tennessee has had a tremendous year and it wouldn't surprise me if they win it. Without Florida there, though, I will only watch a few games depending on what else we have going on.

    The “Omahogs” wanted to ensure others get to enjoy the venue that is TD Ameritrade. Frankly, very magnanimous of them. Most other teams would be more selfish.

    Virginia has been quite impressive in both their Regional as well as their Super Regional falling into the loser’s bracket and fighting/surviving back through that bracket to take home wins.

    Just have to wonder at this point in the season if it’s taken a toll on them that is more than they can maintain. It’s been fun watching their never quit attitude.

    Back before the regionals were announced I was picking Tennessee as my surprise upset winner so I'll stick with that. But without Arky in it I say Vandy has the best shot and should end up winning it. So for my final I'll pick Tenn vs Vandy and Tenn beats them in 3.

    Well since the Gators are not in, and picking from this bunch, I'll go with NC State. ( NC is where I was born, Army brat) I used to cheer for an SEC team if the Gators weren't in it but since the SEC seems to always negatively go against UF (in my opinion), I'll pull for the Wolfpack in this year's Series.
    GO GATORS!!!!

    I'm pulling for Miss State because they pretty much suck at other sports....or are mediocre. Like for their fans to have something.

    Do you really think (regardless of what you may want) that Rocker and Leiter will get beat in back to back games on this stage?

    2 fold.. I think Zona & Stanford are going to keep hitting, pitcher be damned. And Vandy offense not exactly on fire right now. Obviously wouldnt shock me if they won it all, but will shock me if do it only scoring 3-4 a game.

    They have to stay in winners bracket IMO, and just a hunch Zona is going to lay wood(aluminum) to them game 1. Or a hope maybe..;)

    Other than UVa, this field is wide open IMO. Some intriguing matchups on both sides. Offense has been the theme so far, think it stays that way. Someone will mash their way to a title.

    , void of launch angle and spin rates comments from the TV announcers that actually are calling the game being played.

    From what I have been reading some of the crazy spin rates for pitchers is due to "substances" that give them a better grip. Back in our day it was a scuffed ball either from play or from Emory boards, sandpaper, or the like.

    I don't know where I come down on this. Baseball is not golf or playing bridge. In that sport and card game "getting an edge" illegally is verboten. In baseball stealing signs is part of the game. So I guess getting away with a pitching edge is OK if you don't get caught.

    Kind of like playing Euchre. If you can cheat and not get caught you were admired.

    Haven't seen Texas or Stanford,, and any team not from Tennessee would be ok. Hard to pick against vandy tho.

    Zona has the bats, but don't think they have the pitching. NC St has been impressive so give them an underdog shot. Cowbells and Va probably done early.
