Please don't take Joey out, he's throwing a no hitter - 16 balls and 2 strikes
Damn, they took him out

1st pitch = HR, 2nd batter = basehit, 3rd batter = RBI error. Will NC use 4 pitchers in the 1st?

5th batter = RBI basehit, 11-0. Will NC use 5 pitchers in the 1st? I'm done with commentary.

Damn, shouldn't have tried to stretch it to a triple or we would still be at bat.

Go:

Louisville > Vanderbilt.

Michigan > Texas Tech.

Auburn > MISSST.

Arkansas (likely, up 9-1 in the 5th) or Mississippi > Florida State.
Big 10 - 1
ACC - 2
Big 12 - 1
SEC - 4
Grrrr.

Go Michigan to win it all.
Go Louisville 2nd choice.

It could have been, the pitchers for sure didn't seem real comfortable with a baseball and 14 to 7 does sound like a football score.

What a first. The rest of the game N.C. looked good.

I don't claim to know stats but it may be that baseball is more of a warm weather sport.
All 5 times are southern teams.

"Here's the complete list of four-team conference appearances at the CWS:

SEC in 2019: Arkansas, Auburn, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt
SEC in 2015: Arkansas, Florida, LSU, Vanderbilt
ACC in 2006: Clemson, Georgia Tech, Miami (FL), North Carolina
SEC in 2004: Arkansas, Georgia, LSU, South Carolina
SEC in 1997: Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Mississippi State"

Apparently mostly true for champions, too:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/College_W ... ns_by_year
Michigan won it all in 1953 & 1962.
Auburn & Louisville (not northern) have never won.
Otoh, Oregon State 2006-07 & 2018
All 5 times are southern teams.

SEC in 2004: Arkansas, Georgia, LSU, South Carolina
SEC in 1997: Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Mississippi State"
...By sending four teams, these conferences have a 50-percent chance of winning the title, at least by the raw numbers (not counting matchups, seeding, etc.). Yet LSU's title in 1997 is the only instance one of those four-team CWS conferences ended up winning it all. The Tigers beat SEC rival Alabama in the Final, too....

The SEC sucks at Women's basketball after Pat Summitt retired, and southerners are only so-so.
The SEC sucks at Men's soccer, and southerners are only so-so.
The SEC sucks at Women's soccer, but so did everyone besides UNC for a long time.

The combined 473 fans of all of these sports just wanted you to know that.

Speaking of things that suck. We led the entire game. Up 4 to 1 at the bottom of the 9th and they scored 4.

At least they didn't tie and go a bunch more innings, they just scored 4 in the 9th.
