For most of the year, the so-called experts from around the college baseball blogosphere predicted that TCU would be playing their 9th consecutive NCAA Regional in Waco. Instead, the Frogs are headed to College Station to take place in the regional being hosted by former SWC rival Texas A&M.
TCU, the #2 seed in the College Station Regional, will play #3 seed Ole Miss in the first round on Friday, meaning that the Frogs and Rebels will finally get to play the rubber match of their season-opening series, which rain cut short with both teams having taken a game. The Aggies, who beat TCU 4-1 at Lupton Stadium in April, are the #1 seed and will play #4 seed Dayton- making their first ever NCAA Tournament appearance. All of the games in this Regional will be on ESPN3.com.
Whoever moves on from the action in College Station this weekend will be paired up in the Super Regionals with the winner of the Los Angeles Regional. UCLA, the #2 national seed, will host San Diego, New Mexico and Creighton. You can't look past the Aggies or Rebels (or even the Flyers), but wouldn't it be sweet to have a shot at revenge against either the Lobos or Bruins with a trip to Omaha on the line?
