You are correct cant argue that point. It does look like you called it right though having Vandy and Michigan in the finals.
-I think unless Michigan has an epic meltdown then I would say they are a near lock

- I think Vandy really wants MSU to win vs Louisville. Granted they beat both twice this year. But Vandy seems to favor high scoring games over pitching duels. Louisville has way better pitching, MSU has better hitting.

- Vandy vs Michigan seems the most likely with Arkansas choking.

Mississippi St is just like all of the other teams relying on late game magic... when you get to Omaha you can’t mess around because everyone can hit and at least 4 teams have great pitching.

State let Louisville come back and beat them about the same way they beat the barners. Neither should have happened but did. Go to play until that 27th out.

Live by the rally, die by the rally. I guess karma paid a visit to MSU.

Two games today:

TTU v. Michigan at 1:00.
Louisville v. Vandy tonight. Vandy the lone remaining SEC team.

Its a pretty odd CWS. There really only has been 1 true upset, and that was Florida St over Arkansas. Everything else has been about the happy to be here's (Auburn and Florida St) and the pretenders (Mississippi St) being knocked out fast. I still think Arkansas was better than 0-2, but just caught a bad slump at the absolutely worst time ever. Michigan and Vandy have distanced themselves from the pack, but Louisville might have the bullpen to challenge them. But the final 4 was probably the most worthy in a long time.

Michigan rolls to a spot in the finals beating TTU today, 15-3. I watched a good bit of their regional and super and didn't think they were as good as they've played in Omaha. Tip of the cap to them.

Vanderbilt rallies in the 9th to eliminate Louisville, 3-2.

Vandy and Michigan for the title beginning Monday.

I have a feeling they are going to beat Vandy even though everything that I thought I know still indicates that Vandy is the best team in the country.

Michigan wins game 1, 7-4, and made it look easy.

Kumar Rocker will pitch game 2 for Vandy, but they need to swing some hot bats.

Vandy rides a strong outing by Rocker to a 4-1 win over UM. A winner take all game 3 tomorrow.
