3-2 at UCLA’s Jackie Robinson Field. Top seed in the entire tournament is going to have to come out of the losers bracket. Georgia, Louisville and Georgia Tech are also having to come out. That’s half the supers that may not be at the original site.
UCLA would be on our side of the bracket in Omaha, remember. Or whoever comes out of that super. Right now the super could be Loyola Marymount vs. Michigan; both were 3 seeds.

Little known fact: Hogs have never lost to Florida State in baseball. We have a 5-0 record, including three dogpiles on their field, two in a regional, one in a super (first dogpile we didn’t actually play FSU in that regional, but we won the regional anyway). We also dogpiled them at Baum in '04.
i Have watched them some the last 2 nights and really wasn’t that impressed by them,they have some good hitters and pitchers but I have no doubt we hit both of thier top pitchers and Campbell could definently control that offense…Pac 12 hashad a woeful showing!!and the questions have to remain as to how strong the league is.
I want some of these SEC teams like Georgia, LSU, out because we have a better league than the rest of the country and frankly would rather play UCLA and Florida State to win the CWS. The league is so talented and we all know too much about each other.
It’s interesting to see how poorly the Pac 12 has fared. On Selection Monday, the UCLA coached called the Pac 12 the strongest league in the country. I laughed out loud at the time even though I know it’s got some good teams. But Cal is gone, Ore St is gone, UCLA, ASU, & Stanford are in the losers bracket.
It’s not a Pac-12 team, but UC-Santa Barbara, which a lot of people thought might host, was also eliminated in two games. West Coast baseball is not for me. I know some teams have won championships playing that style, but it seems it gets exposed a lot this time of year.
I think UCSB would have hosted if it hadn’t lost its last series to Cal Poly at home. But then they went two-and-through in the regional.
Seems to me that West Coast teams tend to be pitching heavy. Molester State was unfortunately very complete last year. This year their offense was lacking except for Rutschman and they paid for it this weekend.
