2016 FAU Baseball Regional Watch

Add topic

Post



Still 21 conference games to be played, but getting a thread started to track prognostications on the Owls and Regional play, hopefully making it all the way to Omaha.

Baseball America put this out yesterday, which has FAU as the #2 seed in Coral Gables:

Coral Gables, FL

1. (2) Miami^*
2. Florida Atlantic*
3. West Virginia
4. Florida A&M*

* = Automatic Bid

Projected Field Of 64: April 6 - BaseballAmerica.com

D1 Baseball had us as a 2 seed in Coral Gables as well. With Long Beach State as a 3 seed. If that were to happen that would be an overly tough regional with 3 top 20 teams.

One thing I found interesting is they had Rice hosting a Regional. Still shows until we beat Rice were not going to be taken seriously

I want Gainesville. I want another shot to take down Florida.

I vote Tally or Miami.

Tally because of what Delt pointed out, and Miami so we can have more fans there and also a better shot at winning.

I would love to take down UF, but realistically the depth they have in their pitching staff will make them a very tough out in a regional. If we aren't hosting I want the easiest road possible.

So the mantra "We will play anyone, anywhere, anytime" doesn't apply to baseball.

I don't think it should apply to baseball. Baseball has proven they can win. The easiest way to Omaha is the best way.

I think that's a saying you put on T-Shirts when you first start a football program and don't win many games  :cool:

There's only ONE person at FAU that has ever said that - Howard.

But just for kicks, checked in with Coach Mac, and he said he doesn't care where we play…

Somewhat surprised by that response.

Baseball America's April 13th listing now has the Owls on the move…

Also, of note is this comment, although not seeing it logistically for FAU:

Whichever team emerges from among Florida Atlantic, Rice and Southern Mississippi as the regular-season champ of Conference USA should have a strong chance to host, especially if it doubles up by winning the league tournament.
