Yup, USM pounded out 18 hits but only 6 runs, left the bases loaded 3 times(once in extra's), had first 1st and 3 nobody out in top 12 and lined into a double play.... Lots of brakes for NEC but they were very gritted teams, very raw but very talented....It's a shame(at least for USM fans), cause this was a USM team that was just as good as the '13 team that was one game away, in fact they had better pitching this year than in '13....That's why they play the games I guess! Also, USM was the away team in 4 out of 5 games while NEC was home in 3 out of 4....Usually doesn't mean a lot but in extras????  Something the NCAA NEEDS to change....

Fran Ella, the Mock Bracket had great mixing of the regions.

The brackets go as follows (Regions are highlighted in bold):

Rowan regional: 1. Rowan, 2. Christopher Newport, 3. Tufts, 4. Susquehanna  MA 2; S 1, NE 1
vs.
Southern Maine regional: 1. Southern Maine, 2. Trinity (Conn.), 3. Oswego State, 4. New England College  NE 3 NY 1

Trinity (Texas) regional: Trinity vs. Concordia (Texas)  W 2 No flight
vs.
Salisbury regional: 1. Salisbury, 2. Kean, 3. Salve Regina, 4. Shenandoah  MA 2 NE 1 S 1

Concordia-Chicago regional: 1. Concordia-Chicago, 2. Heidelberg, 3. UW-La Crosse, 4. Cornell  MW 2 ME 1 C 1
vs.
Webster regional: 1. Webster, 2. Adrian, 3. Texas Lutheran, 4. Buena Vista  C 2 ME 1 W 1  One flight

Cortland regional: 1. Cortland, 2. Wheaton (Mass.), 3. Keystone, 4. St. Joseph (Maine)  NY 1 NE 2 MA 1
vs.
Johns Hopkins regional: 1. Johns Hopkins, 2. Mass.-Boston, 3. Rochester, 4. Misericordia  MA 2 NE 1 NY 1

TCNJ regional: 1. TCNJ, 2. MIT, 3. Alvernia, 4. Penn State-Abington  MA 3 NE 1
vs.
Babson regional: 1. Babson, 2. Penn State-Harrisburg, 3. Ramapo, 4. Baruch  MA 2 NE 1 NY 1

Birmingham-Southern regional: Birmingham-Southern vs. LaGrange  S 2 No flight
vs.
UW-Whitewater regional: 1. UW-Whitewater, 2. Case Western Reserve, 3. St. John's, 4. Bethany Lutheran MW 3 ME 1

Chapman regional: Chapman vs. Whitman  W 2 One flight
vs.
Ithaca regional: 1. Ithaca, 2. La Roche, 3. Farmingdale State, 4. Westfield State  NY 2 MA 1 NE 1

Denison regional: 1. Denison, 2. Washington & Jefferson, 3. Aurora, 4. Franklin ME 3 C 1
vs.
Washington U. regional: 1. Washington U., 2. North Central (Ill.), 3. Hendrix, 4. Otterbein  C 2 S 1 ME 1

9 brackets had teams from 3 regions
4 brackets had teams from 2 regions.

The three 2-team pods were in-region games from among Pool A bid winners.

If the host team wins the regional, then each super-regional pits teams from different regions.

That gives the chance for strong regions to break out of the pack. We saw UT-Tyler and Texas Lutheran meet in the Finals last year.



The Official Bracket is as follows:

at Southern Maine

1. Southern Maine, 2. Oswego State, 3. MIT, 4. New England College
Regions represented: 2.

at Mass-Boston

1. Mass-Boston, 2. Wheaton (Mass.), 3. St. Joseph's (Maine), 4. Baruch
Regions represented: 2.

Southern Maine (NE) and Mass-Boston (NE) winners meet in super regional.


at Trinity (Conn.)

1. Babson, 2. Trinity (Conn.), 3. Salve Regina, 4. Keystone
Regions represented: 2.

at Cortland

1. Cortland, 2. Penn State-Harrisburg, 3. Tufts, 4. Alvernia
Regions represented: 3.

Trinity (NE) and Cortland (NY) winners meet in super regional.
 

at Chapman

Chapman vs. Whitman

at Texas Lutheran

1. Trinity (Texas), 2. Texas Lutheran, 3. Concordia (Texas), 4. Franklin
Regions represented: 2.

Chapman (W) and Texas Lutheran (w) winners meet in super regional. Plane flight


at Washington U.

1. Washington U., 2. Coe, 3. Aurora, 4. Cornell
Regions represented: 2.

at Birmingham-Southern

Birmingham-Southern vs. LaGrange

Washington U. (C) and Birmingham-Southern (S) winners meet in super regional. 500 miles exactly from WUStL to B-SC.


at UW-Whitewater

1. Webster, 2. UW-Whitewater, 3. North Central (Ill.), 4. Bethany Lutheran
Regions represented: 2.

at Concordia-Chicago

1. Concordia-Chicago, 2. Baldwin Wallace, 3. St. John's, 4. Buena Vista
Regions represented: 3.

UW-Whitewater (MW) and Concordia-Chicago (MW) winners meet in super regional


at Wooster

1. Wooster, 2. Case Western Reserve, 3. Otterbein, 4. Rochester
Regions represented: 2.

at Adrian

1. Denison, 2. Heidelberg, 3. Adrian, 4. La Roche
Regions represented: 1.

Wooster (ME) and Adrian (ME) winners meet in super regional


at Kean

1. Ithaca, 2. Kean, 3. Shenandoah, 4. Westfield State
Regions represented: 4.

at Johns Hopkins

1. TCNJ, 2. Johns Hopkins, 3. Farmingdale State, 4. Susquehanna
Regions represented: 2.

Kean (MA) and Johns Hopkins (MA) winners meet in super regional

at Salisbury

1. Rowan, 2. Salisbury, 3. Washington & Jefferson, 4. Penn State-Abington
Regions represented: 3.

at Christopher Newport

Christopher Newport vs. Misericordia
Regions represented: 2

Salisbury (S) and Christopher Newport(S) winners meet in super regional

One bracket had teams from 4 regions.
Three brackets had teams from 3 regions.
Eight brackets had teams from 2 regions.
One bracket had all 4 teams from the same region.

Among the 2-team pods, 2 matched Pool A winners from the same region. CNU (South)  hosted Misericorida (Mid-Atlantic) for the third.

Ralph, I agree - the mock bracket is more diversified than the real one. But that diversity comes at a cost.

In the mock, 7 of the 8 super regionals could have resulted in flights. In the real bracket, only 3 of 8 could have flights. In both brackets, 2 flights were needed for the regional weekend. NCAA didn't want to risk that there would be 9 flights prior to the World Series.

Congratulations to the Coe College Kohawks for advancing through St. Louis.

There is something about baseball drama that is unlike any other sport (except maybe cricket) and the Kowawks got the best of three drama filled games with Washington University.

One can say that the NCAA approached the new format more conservatively than the past as the committee was facing this format for the first time and schools as well.  If the schools like more regional regionals than national regionals, they need to add their input.  I have heard from several parents who want to make the travel easy as possible and playing in your backyard is favorable.

Game one of the Super-Regionals

A 12-inning game
A bottom of the 9th walkoff
A 5-run rally in the bottom of the 8th
A 2-run rally in the bottom of the 8th
3 saves awarded
One blow-out.

How about that for a great day of baseball.

Day #2 of the Super Regionals.

Quite different. 7 of the 8 series were settled in 2 games, but there was excitement.

The blowout game on Friday was followed by Chapman's 9th inning walk-off.

JHU got 4.2 innings of 1-hit relief for the win

W&J and Babson edged their opponents, the relievers getting saves.

New England College stretched UMB to a 3rd game.

Heidelberg got a 10-run breakout in the bottom of the 8th.

After the 12-inning game on Day #1, BSC blew out Coe.

Webster scored in every inning except the 9th to eliminate CUC.
