    Yeah, the Pack9 folded prematurely. But my impression is that we have a handful of hardcores who will still follow the CWS, even if only in passing. Plus, it’s like a frigging mausoleum around here lately.

    And it’s not as if State fell to a bad team by any stretch. Coastal Carolina has made it all the way to Omaha with 7 other hopefuls. Personally, I’m hoping those beach type roosters bring home the hardware. UCSB and TT will be my other rooting interests.

    Bracket 1 gets going today:
    3pm – UCSB vs OkieSt
    8pm – Arizona vs Miami

    Bracket 2 goes tomorry:
    3pm – TCU vs TxTech
    8pm – Coastal Carolina vs Florida

    As an expatriate of CA, I need to see a couple of Gauchos throw some boleros around Okie St; right now!
    .Wonderfully played game.

    Awrite. I’ve decided to don a Panama freakin’ hat for game 2. I will not put on white loafers, however.

    Is that a coy way of saying you will be rooting for the ‘Canes?
    I can’t believe what I’m hearing.

    Yessir. Now if it was ASU, different story. I wouldn’t mind seeing Miami’s, Michaelangelo kid getting his dick flipped a couple times, though.

    That’s Chicken Little wuf! Beckwith had the stuff! Wuz thinking when I watched him pitch how REALLY nasty his delivery is. Never know which direction it’s coming from and that LOW sidearm with the slider, YUCK! Catching for that dude would be a blast! Give him a low target and watch ’em either whiff or get a called strike. Who could hit that? And not many did! #1 poof, into to the LOSERS bracket you go! GO GO Chicken Little!!!

    That’s Chicken Little wuf!

    LOL, yes. But considering the allegedly big cluckers are home in Columbia playing with themselves (so to speak)…..

    So…the team that eliminated us in dramatic fashion this year is playing the team that eliminated us in dramatic fashion last year?! What are the odds?

    Beckwith was masterful last night, the entire game was an absolute joy to watch. I will admit to switching back and forth from Omaha to Oakland, but got to see a lot of the baseball game. Feels weird to have the team I’m rooting for win…I’d like some more, please…

    With this field, I must agree – beach chickens all the way!

    Will be pulling hard for the Red Raiders in the losers’ bracket, not sure how many teams have beaten Gators twice this year…(couldn’t resist, had to look, was surprised to see that it happened several times this year…) Still…

    Thanks, Wuf, BTW, good to see some life here…

    Found out from reading some of the write ups on that game Beckwith came up with that low sidearm curve pitch supposedly when he was warming up in the bullpen before the game. If that is so (and I have no reason to believe it isn’t) the sky fell on the heads of the gators. Sorry, I could NOT resist the pun. I didn’t see him pitch against us but one would think if he had that stuff against us I would have heard about it in the commentary. In any case it was timely and bonked the gators big time. I can tell you this, All the “other” teams are going to be pulling for “Chicken Little” when they aren’t playing ’em.

    And if you REALLY want some deja vu, Coastal plays TCU Tuesday.

    Gauchos live to fight another day.
    ‘Canes not so much.
    5-3 Final, UCSB eliminates Miami, awaits the loser of tonight’s ‘Zona/OkieSt game.

    There, my world order has been temporarily restored.

    Well done Gauchos.

    OkieSt tops ‘Zona 1-0. ‘Zona will face UCSB on Wednesday. Loser goes home, winner will have to then beat OkieSt 2x to advance to Champs’ Series.

    Gators eliminated. TxTech now awaits the loser of tonight’s Coastal/TCU tilt (9pm, ESPN)
    First time in a dozen years the Champ’s Series will not have either an SEC or an ACC team.

    Also, it seems that being a national seed ain’t what it used to be.

    I’m just gonna go back to my Gauchos, Chauncerleers, match. We had fantastic baseball input on the site over the last month.

    Who says SFN has been silent? (I know…I read, and it kinda pissed me off to see someone say that.) Took me 20 minutes to read it, too.

    ^ Ditto. Unfortunately it looks like TCU may be about to break this one open.

    TCU knocks off Coastal. 6-1 Final.
    The Chants will now have to beat TxTech on Thursday, then turn around and beat TCU twice if they are to make the Champ’s Series.

    ‘Zona eliminates UCSB 3-0 Final, moves on to face OkieSt, must beat them twice.
