College World Series
It is now a win or go home situation for the Seminoles as they fall in Gainesville on Sunday night 5-0.
If Florida State beats Florida, there won’t be a SEC team in the CWS. That’s pretty amazing in itself.
The time and date hasn't been announced yet (likely Saturday), but the Arizona Wildcats know that they will open the College World Series against the Miami Hurricanes.
For the second straight season, the Miami Hurricanes will be returning to the College World Series. Thanks largely to a two-home run, seven-RBI performance from redshirt junior Edgar Michelangeli, the Hurricanes punched their ticket to Omaha, Neb., with a 9-4 win over Boston College in Game 3 of the NCAA Coral Gables Super Regional at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.
The Frogs ride an incredible pitching performance by Brian Howard and will be moving back to the CWS again
The Pokes are loss-less. Yeah, that's a word now.
UC Santa Barbara and Coastal Carolina are heading to the College World Series for the first time. The Big 12 is sending all three of its teams that made the NCAA Tournament to Omaha, Neb. No. 3 national seed Miami also advanced Sunday.

The Cornhuskers were an under .500 team in conference play and with no ESPN 100 player signed, did they get the right prospects to help them compete in the Big Ten?
Nebraska’s Big Man Camp will lack the glitz and the crowd of a Friday Night Lights event, but Monday afternoon’s event for offensive and defensive linemen could be the most interesting few hours of June.
The Marseille prosecutor has laid part of the blame on 150 "well trained" Russians.
Mortgaging the future of your alma mater has never been so fun! (I missed this earlier.)
“It really irritates me that UNL thinks they have a reason to require a donation in addition to high-priced football tickets,” Mike writes. “The athletic department is swimming in a sea of money and yet they disrespect average Nebraska fans by jacking up the price. Drop the donation requirement and those tickets will be sold immediately.”
Football tickets by themselves are not high-priced. You could argue (and believe me, we have internally at CN) that the donation requirement will kill the sellout streak, but if they drop that requirement are we going to go around bitching when Penn State, Ohio State and Michigan continue to bring in more money in their programs than we are?
Also - if you’re one of those people who’s thinking that you’d rather the streak ended because you’re tired of hearing about it, I’d like to remind you that you only appreciate things like that when they’re gone.
Those members of the BU leadership who say Briles should have been spared while Starr should have been the fall guy for the scandal are getting a lot of pressure from big-money donors who say they'll stop giving to the university if Briles isn't brought back as coach in 2017, sources said.
Big-time Baylor boosters think they only need to offer up one fall guy, and obviously they believe that if they wait a year, everything will just die down and go away as everyone’s attention turns to whatever scandal comes next. Fools.
This is all about what’s wrong with us, and when I say “us”, I mean ALL OF US as it’s pretty clear this malaise of not wanting to take full responsibility for our actions and fix the problems in front of us is rampant and cuts across every walk of life.
If that problem is going to be fixed, it has to start with leaders. University leaders, industry leaders, government leaders - either these people get back on track or... well, fuck it, we’re doomed.
