    what about Maryland? no love?

      They need to show me a little bit more right now. If Miami continues to scuffle around, then UMD can take their spot.

      • Sconnoll

        I guess it’s really only curious because they were in before and have looked pretty good thus far. Who took their spot?

        • http://collegebaseballdaily.com Brian Foley

          Virginia Tech is one of the teams I added. They have played well in the early going.

    I swear, Brian, if you guys ever put Austin Peay in Vandy’s bracket again, we’re no longer friends. I still have nightmares about Shawn Kelley pressing Price and Weathers in 2007. He completely screwed up our regional.

      All you Vandy lovers talk about that 2007 regional!

  • TrojansFO

    USC looks good but can’t get the W 3 one run losses in a row in games that were winnable, are they going to figure it out in time to make the post season?

      ya….the Pac-10 is loaded this year too.

  • Rip Torn

    Can Cal host a regional at Evans Diamond? No lights, not enough seats?

    • http://collegebaseballdaily.com Brian Foley

      Honestly, they probably can’t and would travel as a one seed. I didn’t get into who was hosting in the projections right now but Cal deserves a one seed.rnrnBrian FoleyrnSent on the Sprintu00ae Now Network from my BlackBerryu00ae

    Alright Brian,nnYou must be drinking my SOCON cool-aid. But ive got to ask, why CofC, GSU and App St?? I can see CofC and probably GSU but App St over Elon? Elon has won series vs NC St and South Florida. App St won 1 game vs the U and they are not your standard U this year.

    • http://collegebaseballdaily.com Brian Foley

      Honestly, I feel App State is a better team then Elon. The Phoenix beat a bad pitching NC State program and a USF program that hadn’t won a game until they beat Elon.rnrnBrian FoleyrnSent on the Sprintu00ae Now Network from my BlackBerryu00ae

        nIll take those 4 wins over 1 win vs Miami though. I kinda hope your right about Elon cause man it looks like i was off. UNCW beat Elon 10-5 tonight though. App St does have some good arms thats for sure.nnWCU is going to be UP and down all year im affraid. Freshman Dakota Thomas threw 7 innnings 1 hit 0 runs and 7 Ks today. He walked in the winning run vs Wake Forest last week though.nnHow about Furman 3-0 over Georgia!!! LOL when it rains in Athens it pours.

      • RSN

        Well you can scratch App St off your list for now. Citadel swept them out of Charleston this weekend

  • RG

    What do you think about CSUB and the job Coach Kernan has done at the upstart program? They’re on a six game win streak, sweeping Washington and Valpo in subsequent series. They were also pretty competitive with Washington St. recently too, do you think they have a chance as an independent to make an impact?
