Perfect Game's latest projections as well

Observations

1. The host situation is wide open right now. The final five spots are extremely fluid and any team that gets on a roll here at the end could end up in play.

2. The final at-large bids were similarly messy. The final three spots came down to 12 teams and it was difficult to find compelling cases. A team that gets hot could come out of nowhere to snag a bid.

3. This is a year where, in my opinion, the RPI and the eye-test are contradictory in several important instances. For example, Stanford is a Top 8 seed by my eye test but their RPI is light at 16. I also believe UC Irvine to be a very good team but their RPI of 50 is on the bubble. This is an area where the committee might lean on their Regional Advisory Committees to trump RPI.

4. This projection includes the two single highest RPIs we have ever put in the field: Gonzaga at 74 and Iowa at 80. Gonzaga has very little chance to build RPI in Spokane, Wash. so we put that aside and looked deeper. The ‘Zags are 16-8 in a very good WCC and they won three straight road games against the likes of Southern Mississippi and Texas A&M earlier in the season. Iowa is hurt by their nine “Quad 4” (teams 151-299) losses but they have four series wins that made a loud statement: at Oklahoma State, Illinois, Nebraska and UC Irvine.

5. The race for the Top 8 seeds is extremely competitive right now. ECU, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Texas Tech and Stanford are all battling for those final three spots. Texas Tech and Stanford both pass the eye test at a high level and both clubs could still win their respective leagues. As it stands today, the committee will have their work cut out for them here.

6. Once conference tournaments open up let the bid stealing begin. Here are several conferences to keep an eye on with teams listed who could steal one of those at-large bids.

Good work,sir. Interesting how one has UCLA #1 and one has UCLA #2 and both paired with LSU.

There is basically zero chance that A&M hosts, unless they beat AR this weekend.

Oregon State rematch in Fayetteville would break attendance records.

The highest single-game attendance for an NCAA Super Regional was at Dudy Noble Field, Polk-Dement Stadium at Mississippi State University. On June 9, 2007, 13,715 watched Mississippi State beat Clemson to send the Bulldogs to the CWS. The second highest was set the day before, 12,620, for a 2-day Super Regional record of 26,381. In 2015, Arkansas hosted Missouri State in a Super Regional to set the 3-day record for total attendance with 35,730. The highest for an off-campus facility was set at Zephyr Field, a minor-league park in New Orleans. In 2001, Tulane and LSU battled for 3 games in front of 34,341 fans.


Curious to see what kind of records get broken if both Mississippi State and Arkansas makes it to the Super Regional Round.

With our new stadium we will probably have people with ladders climbing on top of the condos.
