    Washington not even hosting, seriously?

    • http://collegebaseballdaily.com/ Brian Foley

      26th in the RPI….that isn’t hosting level right now.

      • Nick

        So it’s all about RPI?

        • Jake Fletcher

          It’s not all about RPI, but it’s a big part, and Washington doesn’t exactly have a whole lot of other stuff on its resume.

          • Douglas Williams

            If U-Dub finishes 2nd in Pac 12, they will host. This writer obviously knows no baseball west of the rockies.

          • http://collegebaseballdaily.com/ Brian Foley

            Obviously you didn’t read the article, the teams are seeded as if the season ended on Tuesday.

          • Jake Fletcher

            No they won’t. Their RPI sucks and has no chance to get better. Washington might want to worry about beating #203 Seattle before talking about hosting anything.

  • spazaru

    I’d love to see the Gators do well at Alabama and at home against Vanderbilt and hold onto their national seed hopes, but if Miami is seriously in their regional, I don’t see them making it out of there.

  • Jake Fletcher

    The leader of the ACC, on a 19-1 run, would certainly host if the season ended today.

    • SCOTT MARTINEAU

      Agree with Mr. Fletcher. The University of Miami WITHOUT A DOUBT would host one of sixteen sub regionals, and IF THEY WIN OUT will make a solid case to be one of eight to host a super regional.

  • Alex

    More minor, but would they really part Maryland (another ACC team) in the same bracket with UVa?

  • Rodger That

    Oklahoma State took 2 of 3 from TCU, Texas Tech, and Texas (in Austin). How are they listed as a 3 seed in a top 8 regional while TCU, Tech, and Texas are all projected to host?

    • BK

      RPI

    • Jake Fletcher

      21 games against teams in the 100+ range. They need to quit playing a pansy schedule.

  • Douglas Williams

    Thank goodness the buffoon who wrote this isn’t actually seeding teams. Oregon State is not an 8 seed, more like 2-3 range. Washington’s RPI will keep rising, especially after playing at OSU in a few weeks.

    • Jake Fletcher

      You must be trolling. Washington has a bunch of RPI killers left on their schedule. They have 11 games left against teams #98 and worse, with four of those opponents being worse than #200. Washington’s RPI is going nowhere. They will have to win out just to maintain #29. Get ready to travel.
