    Gee, Brian– you’re really being original and creative for your Houston regional.  Really?  The same four teams as last year?

      I didn’t even recognize that I did it until someone said something about it! Sent on the Sprint® Now Network from my BlackBerry®

    man, that’d be a crazy columbia regional.  Three SC teams w/i 3-4 hours of each other.  Be a tough ticket.  But so far, the committee hasn’t put SC and Clemson in the same regional.

      I know…but it has to happen sometime right??? Last year, they were matched up for Supers but Clemson didn’t get it done when push came to shove! Sent on the Sprint® Now Network from my BlackBerry®

    Oral Roberts to win the summit?…good team-yes, but hit and miss with wins at times…not as deep as everyone suspects – who ever does their promotion and PR work, should get a medal… South Dakota State the under-dog in the summit – they have ‘game’ and good bats! . Texas state in the southland – good bet here – agreed! In the sec , Florida to win …everyones favorite …somtimes not a good thing and extra pressure on the kids !
