You kinda are. You say that if you can play, you don't need a showcase team. You said college coaches are paid to come to events (false). You say we play the same teams over and over (false). You say playing time is limited (false). You say many arm injuries are caused by showcases (false). I have as well, but...he didn't just come here on a whim.

Re: Where is the Northeast???.. Not on the Road to Omaha

GoingwiththePitch ·
GWTP-- As it is, the field is already tilted heavily in the Northeast's favor. How does Connecticut get a 2 seed in the Clemson Regional with an RPI of 46? They should be a borderline 3/4 seed. Only by seeding them above Coastal Carolina, which has a higher RPI, and then finding another northeast school (Sacred Heart, RPI 84)) weak enough to be the 4 seed. Same thing with the two Northeast schools that have 3 seeds. St. John's, with its RPI of 54 gets to be a 3 seed in the Charlottesville...

Glad you brought it up, not me. I think that they seeded some sites unfairly to create championh$ip matchup$. I mean lets face it Coastal vs Clemson will bring a much larger gate fee than a match up with the other 2. They tried the regional last year up north, 2200 for a championship is nothing. SC probably drew more like 7000+ for the final but for fire regulations they cannot announce. Another thing is that they have given the teams credit and recognition that have VERY difficult schedules...

Yes they did, and that was the most exciting college game I've ever seen. Just unbelievable. I knew somehow Coleman would get a hit, the guy is a hitting machine. Shiflett running for Coleman is a no brainer. I thought O'Connor would give Shiflett the green light to try to steal second, but he held him back. Then King, then Gragnini pitch hits for Werman and get 4 straight balls. Then Taylor drives them in. Incredible I'm very, very impressed with the 'Eaters players and their coaches. Heck...

Re: UVA

UVA had them right where they wanted them! Cavs had their two best contact hitters IMO with Coleman and Taylor in the two most crucial situations. Major kudos to them for quality at bats, as well as King and Gragnini for being patient at the plate. I thought O'Connor was going to send the speedy Shiflett to 2nd base to get him in scoring position, but held him back.....patience is a virtue. Just an awesome game to watch as a fan. I can't imagine what it would be like as a parent.
