I'll follow it when they ditch the aluminum bats, and when the regular season coverage gets better in my area. I never hear anything about college baseball until around this time each year, and thusly have no idea what's going on.

GO VANDY!!!!!

They sure impressed me this past weekend at the SEC Tournament.

Lose the first game, then wins their next three games handily, allows 3 runs in the top of the 10th only to score 4 runs in the bottom half to go to the Championship Game, then beats the team that had allowed just 2 runs in their first three games.

Quick question, I was watching the Vanderbilt play and was really impressed with 3B Pedro Alvarez. The announcers said that he and Matt LaPorta are probably the best posistional players in the SEC. Then made the comment that Alvarez is only a sophomore, so he'll be around one more year. Is that some kind of rule? I thought MLB teams could draft anyone that was a high school senior or older.

Anyway real excited for the tournament this year. I just wish a Maryland school was good. The SEC seems like it has a pretty big following and would love to have a similar thing around here. But for now, GO ECU!

You can be drafted out of high school, but if you don't sign and instead take the college scholarship, you can't be drafted again until after your junior year. Whether that's an NCAA or professional baseball rule, I am uncertain.

And yes, the obligatory GO VANDY! It's unusual to get to pull for the top seed of the entire tournament and still be pulling for the alma mater, so I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

It's been a pretty good past couple years for Vandy Athletics.

Not bad for a school that got rid of their atlethic department a few years ago.....

The Columbia Region is gonna be sweet, first off really excited about having a regional here, plus Miami is in it. Now normally this wouldn't be a big deal, but Blake Tekotte, who plays for Miami, went to my high school and played on the state championship team with me. I'm really excited to see him play in person, and I'm sure like everyone in Columbia is gonna turn out for any Miami game.

So GO MIZZOU!!! But if they get knocked out then: GO CANES!!!

Ok, I'm glad to hear that their is some kind of rule. There really needs to be more to make the draft more fair.

After seeing Western Carolina (sadly) destroy the Apps over the course of the season, I could see them being a Cindarella type in the tournament this year. They should have won the SoCon, but somehow Wofford with like only 8 confrence wins during the year won the tournament.

However, I say UNC and Vandy in the championship series this year.

Go 'Dores!

I ordered my Vandy game cap last week, and the bookstore said it should ship this week. I hope it comes by this weekend...
