The Cinderella Team
Let’s go Minnesota. The Golden Gophers are the only four seed in the tournament to go 2-0 over the first two rounds. Yesterday they had to rally from 3-0 and 4-3 deficits to come back to beat New Mexico 6-4 in 10 innings. Now all they need is one more win to reach the Super Regionals for the first time in school history. Up next for them is the winner of the CS Fullerton/New Mexico game, the two teams they’ve already beat.
The Biggest Losers
16 teams are already gone and we’ve broken them down into two categories. There’s your losers and then there’s your biggest losers. Eleven out of the 16 teams were the four seeds…teams we expected to sent home first and teams that nobody cares about.
Then there were your teams that were supposed to be still playing. Teams like Stanford and Cal who sucked balls the hardest…both were two seeds and both are now gone from the tournament like a fart in the wind after stinking it up. Pac 10 = overrated.
