Mike Rooney's plan to improve college baseball

Behind paywall at D1Baseball. Anyone who has a subscription care to give us the Cliffs Notes on what he’s proposing other than making baseball a head count sport, which is pretty obvious?

This is his first part of several more to come.

This part dealt with his proposal to change the format of the Tournament

He proposes 32 first round hosts in best 2 of 3 series

Then16 hosts of 3 game series

And the third round would be just like the current Super regional, winners advancing to CWS.

Also proposes expanding to 68 teams. Those “First Four” games would be played at the sites of the overall top seeds on Thursday night, with winners advancing to the 2/3 series against the hosts.
