    Anyone know when the last time that there were no regionals in the state of Florida? I bet it’s been a long time.

    FLORIDA finished 2nd to last in conference with a 10-20 record.
    SWAC traveled to Athens as a 2-seed, lost Game 6 and Game 7 to Georgia
    Miami traveled to Lincoln as a 2-seed where they handled San Francisco and Manhattan (twice), in fairness, Nebraska lost to each of Manhattan and San Francisco to avoid playing Miami; they went to Oxford for Supers and won Games 2 and 3. Oregon State sent 'em packing as the Beavers rallied from the loser's bracket for their first of two consecutive titles.

    Go GATORS!

    Yeah, but we're going to host a Super Regional when we win the Lubbock regional and Harvard pulls off the upset in the OK State regional.

    Some Ok St fans whining about having to play at OU..I was confused thought they moved it again...lol Apparently OKC is Sooner-ville

    And here I thought regional & WCWS in same town was convenient.

    Norman is pretty much a suburb of Oklahoma City and Stillwater is about an hour out in the sticks. When my dad was stationed in OKC in the 60s it was all OU all the time. Obviously, that was a LONG time ago but I imagine that the proximity and long term support has made it even more of an OU stronghold.

    If there was a regional in Cabo (and the GATORS were present and accounted for) would you make it to the field?

    Go GATORS!
