    Who will roll the dice...Arkansas or Florida?

    Which one will start their #2 man in Game 1?

    I see Oregon State winning their bracket 3-0.

    There are a lot of schools here this year that I cannot stand. Texa$ being right at the top.

    I think I'll have to root for Mississippi State. I have no real ill will towards that school.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Van Horn win it all with Arkansas since he used to coach here at NU.

    But not a fan of Arkansas for stealing him away from us.

    Go Bulldogs

    If Tech gets eliminated I’ll probably root for Texas on that side of the bracket.

    My wife hotel is filling up with CWS fans and media.
    Some brilliant mind scheduled a large youth baseball tournament in Omaha for this weekend as well. Their teams and families are gonna get gouged for big bucks for their rooms. Every hotel in town jack's up room prices for major events. (supply /demand at work here) They should have scheduled this tournament for a different weekend.

    Carolina got that big inning and made it stand up.

    Miss State could be a player in the CWS. They swept Florida
    late in the year. They started horribly, but then they fired
    their coach and got back on track.

    Their game with UNC will be huge.

    MSU seems to be a team of destiny this year. Still don't know how they got by my Sooners after dropping the first game to them 20-10.

    This tournament has been happening every year for as long as I can remember. I went way back in 2004 to watch the CWS and then played in that travel ball tournament in 2006. Council Bluffs, Iowa is the best place to stay anyways

    I remember my son playing in a couple of Omaha tournaments back in the mid 90's. I think it was called The Super Series. I don't recall if it coincided with the CWS or not. But, we lived in Omaha anyway so we didn't have to pay those Exorbitant hotel prices.
