College World Series Preview

Today is one of my favorite day in sports! The College World Series starts today in Omaha. The eight teams were decided on Monday.

This years team are: Stony Brook, UCLA, Arizona, Florida State, Kent State, Arkansas, South Carolina, and Florida. The first game is the cinderella team Stony Brook against UCLA at 5pm ET on Friday. After that game is Arizona versus Florida State. Saturday is SEC Saturday as Kent State takes on Arkansas at 5pm on 6.16. After that defeating champions South Carolina will play the Gators of Florida.

In bracket play is double elimination while the Championship Game will be best of 3 games.

Some games I am personally excited about is anything involving Stony Brook. They were the #4 seed in their bracket. This is the second time in history when a fourth seed has made it to CWS. I'm reading for Saturday as the SEC teams battle to the Championship. I'm bummed that the SEC teams are on the same side of the bracket. I would love to see an SEC vs. SEC championship. I know I'm bias though.

I'm interested in seeing how South Carolina plays this weekend. No team has ever made it a 3peat. I think it would be great to see. I wish we could make it up to Omaha for a few games. I'm jealous that one of my friends is going back to watch the games. (He hasn't missed a CWS game in his life.)

Until next time,
