OG-I must disagree-getting sent to a regional at Texas is very bad. Texas has the best team in the country, they are ranked #1 in all polls, and are hungry for another shot at the CWS since coming up short againsr Rice this year. Huston Street is the best relief pitcher in College Baseball without any doubt. Trust me we all want SEBaseball to be wrong on that one. In all seriousness as dangerous as UM is at home, Id rather go there like in Big12BAseball.com's predictions-they had it as:
Coral Gables Regional (Miami)
1. Miami, Fla 26-7 2 (4)
4. Austin Peay 22-12 121

2. Florida Atlantic 31-9 29
3. South Florida 25-13 42

At least many more of our fans could attend then if we were a #2 in the Texas regional. Either one of Miami and Texas is a bad draw for us. We'd like to be in Southern Mississippi's,Oklahoma's, or Texas A'M's regional for example instead. Not that those teams arent good but they arent on the level of Miami or #1 Texas.

Hey, let's just go ahead and get it over with fast. I too would prefer to see the Blue Wave in Miami where we would have a better shot at moving on to the next round (last year certainly gives no reason to think such a thing). I chastised Burrowingowl for such negative thinking not too long ago, but I can't help but think the Owls aren't quite there yet for the following reasons:
  1. Pitching- that's why KC has changed the rotation for this weekend.
  2. Fielding-the big E's have killed us in several games
  3. Injuries- Rusty may be back to full tilt by playoff time(which would be a big help if we could eliminate the E's) but he's still hurtin'; Orton's offense & defense have been missed…hopefully he'll see action this weekend and do well.
  4. I still don't think KC has put his best lineup on the field………………………………………………..don't even ask!
We'll be losing some key players as seniors and who knows what will happen with Hutton & Fiorentino in the draft. Personally I hope they'll be back because I think the young talent on this team will carry the Owls to the next level and they should be there for that, but I understand they're both chompin' at the bit to move up to, as KC puts it, The Promised Land. (Great DD post on 4/21 and a great referral to a former players website which is well worth a look).
Sweep Belmont, Troy State, Georgia State and Mercer and I will be singing another song. As for now I can very, very faintly hear a fat lady way, way back in the background. Let me shut up and listen.

Texas is definetely a team we don't want to face in the regionals - I agree with BurrowingOwl that Streets is a great closer & he is so much more, the guys does everything.

I just hope the team starts playing sound ball again and peaks at just the right time- before regionals.
