Agree. LSU was lower than I expected, but Bama is a top 5 team.

You have to beat the best to be the best. Can't get through a Super because of match up then you don't deserve to go to Oklahoma City.

Could not agree more. The seeding is obviously a result of the Murphy factor. The games count now. Past results matter. This team can't hit against good pitching and he is supposedly the hitting coach. Despite his ineptness as a hitting coach, hopefully the girls will muster enough offense to advance.

They did get screwed but beating Texas to get to the World Series is not that hard.

Matters how inflated their stats are but they have a Top 8 ERA and the pitcher with the #1 ERA overall

They put one of the weakest teams under Walton as a 5 seed?

Jesus, UF is WAY overseeded. UF literally is only seeded that high based on Barnhill and Lorenz.

History matters. The seeders based their decisions based on history. All the usual players are there.

52-7, won the toughest League in the country, and gets a 8 seed, which means they would face OU in the 1st game in OKC, assuming both teams make it there.

Bama got hosed.

On the other hand, OU must be furious with that bracket. They don't want this Bama team in the 1st game. Thats for sure

Truthfully I don't think Oklahoma cares who they play.

But looks like they are trying to set up Oklahoma vs Texas in the WCWS.
You can say the same about Florida vs Florida State at 4 and 5

The seeding doesn't really matter that much in Supers in this case, however, make it out of Supers and potentially draw Oklahoma in the first round of the WCWS is where the screwing took place.

This was a deliberate attempt by the committee to protect UF because the seeding should have been reversed...

They couldn't have done Bama a bigger favor. Preseason poll had them #8. In the SEC! A big #8 has been posted in their locker room all season. Ironically, Murphy wore #8 as a HS baseball player.

re: Alabama 8 seed is a screwing
If you've followed softball very long, you already know that they try to manipulate the outcome and that there are far too many rematches and that is true again this year. The biggest BS is that they consider the seeds of the other teams in their geographic region when determining the pecking order in some cases so they can limit the travel requirements. So, if you are in Alabama, the relative strength of Alabama State etc that they want to put in the same bracket as Alabama has some weight on where to seed Alabama.

As for Bama seeding, they screwed-up- intentionally. But, the biggest disrespect is not Florida seeded 5th. It is Minnesota at 7th. Not only did Bama beat them handily, they are 0-5 vs. the SEC.

The committees explanation was that Bama's out of conference schedule was ranked 112th. That is really very poor and inexcusable, but the committee gave that fact far too much weight.
