NCAA Changes Regional Format

http://www.ncaasports.com/baseball/mens/schedules/divi
Instead of the old 2-3-2 format over three days, the NCAA has set up a 2-2-2-1 format over 4 days for the NCAA Baseball regionals.
The big plus here is if you lose the Game 4 saturday winners bracket game you no longer have to come back and play another game 30 minutes later.
This would have REALLY helped FAU in 2003 when we lost a heartbreaker to Miami 1-0 and had to come back and play a rested and ready Florida team 30 minutes later. It was a scorching hot day and our players were physically drained, and after the Miami loss,mentally drained. So it really wasnt fair to have had to play a rested Florida team fresh from their air-conditiomned hotel rooms.
Hopefully FAU can make it back to the regionals this year with the new format. Having the games spread out over an extra day will make it a little easier on the teams without real deep pitching stuffs(like us).
