I don’t think the above logo is at all official, but it works nonetheless. Regional action is slated to begin this afternoon in the 2008 NCAA Baseball Tournament. My eyes are fixed primarily on the Athens (go dawgs), Raleigh, Cary, Conway and Tallahassee Regionals. May even catch some of those games in person. There are a lot of nice Super Regional pairings as well, but a Georgia-NC State matchup would be particularly enticing. I’ll likely find myself on the road to Athens if that one happens to pan out
As for the Tallahassee Regional, well, as fate would have it, I actually have quite a few Water Lizards in my family (sad but true), and one of them happens to grace the mound for the Gators on a regular basis. That said, though it pains me so, I’ll naturally continue to be a Florida baseball fan for the time being (at least until they face my Dawgs again).
You can examine the rest of the Regionals and Super Regional pairings here, and a complete schedule/scoreboard for all the Regional sites is here. If you’re looking to get a feel for who the winners and losers will be from Vegas’ perspective, check out this page. I promise the Tournament will be more intriguing than your run of the mill, Pre-All Star break MLB series (hopefully).
