    I like Rice over one of the Cali teams.

    If I was a betting man I'd bet on a repeat of last years OSU & UNC final.

    Although Louisville really interests me - they've throttled everyone they've played so far in the NCAA Tournament.

    I have friends that went to Rice to - so I have to pull for them.

    I remember the Baseball America guys talking about how dominant Rice could be if they didn't have injury problems. Have they been missing at least one key component during this postseason run?

    Not really. What they may have been referring to was Wayne Graham's reputation for grinding his pitchers into the ground.

    I would love to see Louisville continue their recent play and pull this thing out, although it seems to be a long shot. Winning the CWS would do huge things for a program that prior to this year had never won a regional game.

    Ok State was supposed to be the offensive powerhouse in this year's Super Regionals and Louisville just embarrassed them in two games. I wouldn't put anything past them.

    And OesterPoster - Joe Savery & Cole St. Clair are their two top pitchers and they've been hurt all year but are healthy now. Savery's also one of their best hitters playing 1B and DH'ing for himself on the days he pitches. That's what they're referring to.

    I forgot about St. Clair.

    Savery's been hurt? He's made 17 starts on the hill and played in all 66 games on Rice's schedule.

    I think he's had niggling injuries all season. Or maybe I'm crazy.

    Either way - CWS starts in 48 hours

    Louisville up on Rice 6-4 in the 4th inning of Game 1. Impressive.

    10-4 in the 5th now.

    Everyone in the Louisville lineup has at least 1 hit already.
