Regional Projections

Does the road to Omaha run through Reckling?

In past years, we've paid attention to the NCAA Tournament Regional projections because the Frogs were in the thick of the hunt to host the first weekend of the tournament. This year, we pay close attention because the Frogs are on the bubble in terms of just making the tournament at all.

The good news is that, for at least this week, TCU is on the good side of the bubble- the college baseball site Perfect Game names them as one of the last five teams in to the field of 64 along with upcoming non-conference opponent Oklahoma as well as Tennessee, Washington and Georgia Tech. Texas State, who beat TCU in both meetings this year, is part of the "next 10" that are currently on the outside looking in.

Kendall Rogers of PG has the Frogs as a #3 seed in the Houston Regional- hosted by #1 seed Rice and also featuring #2 seed Texas and #4 seed Canisius. That would mean that the Frogs' first game of the tournament would be against the Longhorns. Other teams projected to be possible hosts for TCU are Baylor, Texas A&M and LSU- unless the NCAA decided to ship the Frogs far away from home.

Other Frog opponents in the projected field are New Mexico and UNC Wilmington as #4 seeds, Dallas Baptist as a #3 seed and Cal State Fullerton as a #1 seed and regional host.
