That’s kind of a crap draw #4 seed for us if that pans out. We would be the overall #1 seed and should get the team ranked #64 on the NCAA selection list as our #4 seed in our regional. We should get a SWAC or MEEAC team.
They don’t do that in baseball. Seeding stops at #16, basically. After that it’s geographics and/or conference alignment; they’re not going to put Ole Miss or Georgia in our regional as a 2 seed for instance. We’ve gotten some Pac-12 teams in our regional because all the regionals out there were in Pac-12 ballparks.
Having Virginia Tech here would be interesting. One of the founders of the Baum BQ Squad is now at Virginia Tech. Tim Kring was also responsible for the Swatters Club email listserv back before Facebook and Twitter became prevalent.
