The Super Regionals of the NCAA baseball tournament (which I have learned don't use a hyphen) get underway today with four games. Four more super regionals will start tomorrow. You can follow the scores here.
The format is pretty simple, 16 teams are paired up and they play a best of three series, either Friday-Sunday or Saturday-Monday. The eight winners get to college baseball's Santiago de Compostela, Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha.
The pilgrimage starts today this way:
Athens - North Carolina State plays #8 seed Georgia at 9 am PT on ESPN
Tallahassee - Wichita State plays #4 seed Florida State at 11 am PT on ESPNU
Coral Gables - Arizona (yes, Arizona, that grudge is over because as arbitrarily as I start grudges, I also choose to end them) plays #1 seed Miami at 4 pm PT on ESPN
Fullerton - Stanford takes on the Fighting Commuters of Cal State "I Can't Believe It's a University" Fullerton at 7:30 pm PT at 7:30 pm PT on ESPN2
The other four super regionals start tomorrow: Coastal Carolina at North Carolina, UC Irvine at LSU, Texas A&M at Rice, and Fresno State at Arizona State.
All of the top 8 seeds are playing in the super regionals.
