Oregon State leads field of 64 in 2014 Division I Baseball tournament

The field of 64 teams competing for the 2014 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship was announced today by the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee.

The national top eight seeds are Oregon State (42-12), Florida (40-21), Virginia (44-13), Indiana (42-13), Florida State (43-15), La.-Lafayette (53-7), TCU (42-15) and LSU (44-14-1). The top eight seed for Indiana marks a first for a Big Ten institution.

Both my current school (Oregon State) and my undergrad (Cal Poly) are number one seeds in their regions, pretty cool. Anyway, there are links to the full bracket in the article for those interested in the college tournament.

IU did barrel through an overmatched B1G and didn't play Nebraska (the other B1G team to make the tournament) until the conference tournament final. RPI was still solid. Indiana State could give them a run this weekend.

I admit, I haven't been following my alma mater, Florida, as intently as I have in the past. They got off to a rough start which saw them utterly unable to hit the ball, so it was sort of stunning to see them right the ship and win the conference.

UF's reward for earning the #2 seed was apparently one of the toughest regionals in the country, including drawing the College of Charleston and their top-notch ace as the four seed.

Eric Milton and Justin Maxwell's alma mater in the tournament for the first time since the 1970s.

If Florida State got to Omaha and won it, would ESPN make a bigger deal out of Mike Martin winning the CWS or Jameis Winston winning both the CWS and BCS Championships in the same year?

Seriously I would think for them the latter would be the bigger story.

Eric Milton and Justin Maxwell's alma mater in the tournament for the first time since the 1970s.
And are in the super-regionals for the first time ever, something both Florida and FSU failed to achieve this year. I'd be surprised if the Terps can conquer the Cavs and earn a trip to Omaha, but you never know.

Looks like at least 5/8 top seeds won't get out of the first week. Stanford just walked off in Bloomington to knock off IU.

Oregon State looking good though. I may go to a super regional game if they can finish this game off.

I was a little confused as to Pat's choice of pitchers, but he must know what he's doing.

Good bye Beavers. Maybe next year.

9 regional hosts, of 16, knocked out in the first round. Four 3 seeds and a 4 seed get through. Only one super regional matches 2 top seeds.

This ought to be fun.

Beavers & Ducks both eliminated over the last few days. The CWS is gonna get swallowed by the World Cup for me, I guess.

And LSU loses two straight at home to U of H. F---g Texas gets to host a super regional. Arggh.
