Another view on Regional Projections

While whoever is in charge at SEbaseball.com has projected a TCU-Texas rematch in the Super Regionals seemingly all season, Kendall Rogers over at Rivals has a different take on projecting the NCAA Regionals. He makes the case, most likely begrudgingly so due to his aggy roots, that TCU is deserving of one of the coveted Top 8 overall national seeds (which carry with them the right to host a Super Regional if you advance that far).

He's got the Frogs hosting Rice, A&M and Wichita State in the Regional. That's no walk in the park at all. If they were to prevail against that tough field, they'd then get the right to host the winner of the Los Angeles Regional in the Supers. Playing in LA will be host and #1 seed UCLA, #2 San Diego (USD, not San Diego State), #3 UC-Irvine and #4 Fresno State.

Other TCU opponents in Rogers' projected field include New Mexico as a 3-seed in Tempe, Cal State-Fullerton hosting a Regional that includes Tech as the 3-seed, Texas State as the 3-seed in Austin, OU as the 2-seed in Oxford and Oral Roberts as the 4-seed in Fayetteville.
