I think itís pretty smart to do that. The committee probably doesnít want 3 or 4 teams from the same conference in the CWS, so better to have them knock each other out.

My thought is that you rank them 1 through 16 in the order they fit and then you let the chips fall where they may. I don't think you should try to stop a conference from having numerous CWS teams, but I also don't think you have to avoid conference matchup prior to Omaha. So however they fall once you do the 1 vs 16, 2 vs 15, etc...

My pathetic memory tells me we have failed this same test b4, with a loss to the Pirates..... or was that a Super?

Either way, we better bring it from the 1st pitch, all hands on deck!

Either that or Clemson finished 3rd in the ACC tournament - and the ACC was down this year.

I like playing ECU in all sports - good competition without the inflated egos that you get with the Tobacco Road schools.

Is there a certain protocol if Carolina and 2 seeded Southern Miss advance out of their regionals to who gets to host the Super this year or will the NCAA choose last minute like in previous years?

Thatís exactly how they do it now. ECU is the #12 overall seed and paired with Arkansas, the #5 overall seed. The committee is no longer suppose to match up based on location. Look at Coastal this year. In years past, there is no chance they would be sent all the way to Cali for a Super.

I want to say if both two seeds win, the two seed that beat the top 8 seed gets to host unless that team has sub par facilities.

We played there in the 2009 Regional and lost 10-9 in the Regional final.
Thoughts from those who went to that regional as far as facilities, number of Carolina fans, etc?

Oh I agree. I was just saying if Southern Miss were to win and SC comes out of Greenville that's what I think usually happens.

Makes sense. I believe Southern Miss has hosted before so it shouldnít be a problem for them.
On another note, looking at our regional, I believe anyone can win this thing. ECU has beaten some quality opponents such as UNC (2 games of 3) and UConn (2 games of 4), weíre one of the hottest teams in the country, I donít know much about Ohio State but they have beaten some decent teams in the B1G, and UNCW is obviously the best 4 seed in this tournament. Itís a tough regional but could be one of the best draws for a 2 seed in the tournament.

That's not how it works. The Super goes to the team with the higher bid, regardless of who beat the top 8. Example, us hosting the Super in 2016.

Yeah, if we win the ECU Regional and ARK loses theirs, I betting we are the higher seed and would get the bid.

EDIT- both teams would be 2 seeds, but I'm betting that we would win the bidding war and host.

That's not an example. SC hosted a regional and won as a 1 seed. Oklahoma State beat Clemson as a 2 seed. That's why we hosted.

Default Re: NCAA SELECTION THREAD

Never have understood where some of you guys get this information about whoever beats the National Seed, then automatically hosts. It's simply not accurate.

This is from before this season and some things are changing, but here is one examle:
Quote:
Super Regionals are played at eight locations throughout the country and consist of the 16 surviving teams, matched up by predetermined regional pairings. National seeds cannot meet each other in the super regional and are guaranteed to host. If the national seed in the bracket is eliminated in the regional stage, the super regional will be played at the higher seeded team's field. If the two seeds are the same, the Super Regional will be bid upon by the two competing teams. If the national seed wins the regional but is unable to host, the Super Regional is awarded to the other regional winner in its bracket. This scenario played out in 2015 when national seed Missouri State could not host a Super Regional because the minor league Springfield Cardinals, which have scheduling priority at the stadium where both teams play, were playing a home series at that time. The Super Regional was thus awarded to Arkansas. The two teams play a best-of-three series to determine who moves on to the College World Series. Although one school hosts all three games, the teams split home-team status in the first two games, with the host school batting last in the opening game and first in game 2. If a third game is needed, a coin toss determines home-team status. Ole Miss is the only school to host three Super Regionals without advancing to the College World Series under the current format. Florida State has lost five Super Regionals as host, but has also advanced to the College World Series five times under the current format.
In this case, if we were to go against USM for the Supers, anyone think we wouldn't outbid them to host?


In fact, here is where this same discussion was held on this site, 2 years ago.
