    Is Burns going to be able start for you guys? Like a regular start, not an opener like he was today.

    If Burns, Owen, and Daniel were all healthy, Auburn would be a legit threat. Just tough to buy in if y’all only have 1 starting pitcher, though.

    Haven’t heard anything yet after today on Burns, my guess is max 4 innings though.

    Bert’s official Omaha power rankings

    1) Vandy- unreal offense and Rocker is unhittable right now. Fellows has been touched up lately.

    2) Arkansas- Loaded offense and a true ace in Campbell that all but guarantees a W. Need our freshman Saturday and Sunday guys to step up.

    3) Miss State- true ace in Ethan Small and another potent lineup offensively. Going to have to navigate the more difficult side of the bracket.

    4) Texas Tech- very good offense but pitching isn’t quite on the level of the top 3. Will need to get hot at the plate, but do have a shot playing on the easier side of the bracket.

    5) Louisville- They have some good pitching and a solid offense, but I question how easy their road to Omaha was. We’ll see.

    6) Auburn- pitching rotation getting healthy and some quiet bats all season have gotten hot at the right time. Hopefully they stay hot.

    7) Michigan- great pitching and a decent offense. They’ll be a tough out. Lack of experience in the postseason will make it hard to win more than a game in Omaha.

    8) Florida State- One of the strangest runs to Omaha you’ll ever see. Fighting for their legendary coach, but the talent deficiency is about to catch up to them because LSU just wasn’t very good.

    cant argue with this - easier side of the bracket but losing holt for (presumably) the entire CWS this past weekend will hurt our offense

    I’m with you. Not sure there is another reasonable explanation for what happened today. Not sure how we cheated, but it definitely happened. And while I feel sorry for you and shabooty individually, I don’t feel bad overall. Hope you understand.

    Is Fellows going game 1?

    I think Louisville wins game 1 if he does. Detmers is real good.

    If he had power he'd be on there. His OBP would be a lot higher if he didn't put so many borderline pitches in play. Great contact skills but sometimes he should just walk

    FSU is 2-20 all time in CWS opening games. I would look for that ineptitude to continue. However, FSU has breezed through the SEC at 4-0 in this postseason.

    Eh, I find that team likeable especially Campbell. I'm a big fan of people getting redemption so i'm hoping Van Horn gets a chance to avenge the dropped fly ball since he's been so many times and never won.

    Obviously i understand the irony of that sentence and if Arkansas doesn't win it i'm rooting for FSU and Mike Martin. WPS for another week or two.
