I got to talk a little college baseball with Ty Pyburn of The Pulse on Campus on ThePulseNetwork.com today. We solely went over our National Seeds that we currently have in place in the regional projections that Brian released today. This was my first real interview talking about the sport after heading into my 4th season of coverage, and I can definitely build on it. Only made one real egregious error that I know of, saying that Josh Elander hit the blast off Mike McGee in Omaha last year when it was really Matt Curry, but can’t sue me for that, right? I’m sure you’ll all let me know in the comments section if I flubbed elsewhere. Had an audio issue where I could hear myself talking as I talked about halfway through, but we’ll have that figured out for next time as we’ll probably use Skype. Keep watching when my part is over, as Katie Dowd of The Daily Cal and contributor to the site talks about the situation over at Cal. Video after the jump.

The NCAA toured TD Ameritrade Park on Thursday to take a look at how the construction of the new stadium is going. Dennis Poppe was surprised at the size of the new stadium and considers it better then what he expected.
Here are our selections for the 2011 College World Series. I asked six people for their opinion on who will be taking part in the first College World Series at the new Ameritrade Stadium in Omaha. Besides my own selection, we have TCBB Assistant Editor Mark Rafferty, TCBB Senior Writer Kat Cornetta, TCBB Scouting Guru Aman Reaka, TCBB contributor Casey Hull, and our special guest is Jana Howser of The College Baseball Foundation and daughter of Dick Howser who all gave their picks. We have 20 different teams represented in our picks with UCLA being the only team that shows up on everyone’s brackets. Virginia and Florida both were named on five out of six brackets. You can check out the full results below.
