Just in case you’ve been busy the last few months and haven’t been able to catch as much College Baseball as you’d like to, well, you’re in luck. I’ve broken down every remaining Conference Tournament heading into Saturday’s action, with potential bracket buster teams and predictions on who will represent their conference. Well, I’m predicting most of them. All in all, it’s just a rundown on what’s gone on so far rather than post each conference tourney updates individually, and a guide on what you sould be watching for if you have nothing to do but flip around DirecTV on a Saturday. Cause I know that’s what I’ll be doing. We start off with the multi-bid conferences that have tournament action this weekend (ACC, Big East, Big XII, SEC) after the jump.
The Big Ten Tournament begins Wednesday in a winner takes all double-elimination weekend. The winner goes to the NCAA Tournament, the other 5 teams go home.
This season has been by far the craziest Big Ten regular season in quite some time. Just two weeks ago, all 10 teams were within just 2 games of each other. Things shook out over the last week of the season, seeing preseason Omaha dark horse Ohio State dropping completely out of the Big Ten Tournament picture, and perennial bottom dwellers Iowa and Northwestern led some spectacular last week surges to secure their spots.

According to multiple sources, SEC Athletic Directors have approved the use of a 20 second pitch clock during the 2010 SEC Tournament. The goal of the clock is to shorten games and make them more fan and TV friendly.
I remember watching last season a game from the SEC Tournament at around 1 AM eastern time and could not believe that they were still on.
