[quote][/For months after Coastal Carolina surfaced out of the Big South in 2016 to win an NCAA baseball regional at NC State, then a super regional at LSU before rolling Florida, Texas Tech, TCU and Arizona in the College World Series to earn its first national title, coach Gary Gilmore accepted thanks at almost every turn.

In hotels, restaurants, airports, Gilmore said, "every time I went somewhere, some coach or some fan came up and stopped me."

They offered a singular message. "You made us believe."

Believers abound in the wake of the Monday unveil of the 64-team, NCAA postseason field. Four-team regionals begin Friday at 16 sites, featuring No. 1 overall seed Florida, the reigning national champion, and first-time host Stetson out of the Atlantic Sun, with super regionals on tap June 8 -11 and the CWS to open June 16 in Omaha, Nebraska.

Before the Chanticleers' memorable run, 19 of the 20 teams to play for a title over the previous decade came from the SEC, ACC, Pac-12 or Big 12.

Just coming here to say that this year's college world series final really illustrated how one mistake can make the difference between ecstasy and agony. I didn't even watch any of the College World Series but my sister was pulling for Arkansas and wrote a post about Arkansas snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in game two. Couldn't find a Youtube on it but there's a video of the play at http://thesportsdaily.com/2018/06/28/wa ... mpionship/.

All they had to do was have one of those three guys make the catch and they're national champs. Now they're not.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star

Kind of lost interest when the NCAA forced Omaha to build a new stadium, replacing Rosenblatt. Another example of a sports event going from a neighborhood to a downtown, corporate suit event.

Apparently they don't play good college baseball north of the Mason Dixon Line and very far West (Siebert field is 6 blocks away) of the Mississippi, otherwise known as ECB area.
