Although Kentucky Baseball team’s season ended over 2 weeks ago in disappointing and dramatic fashion, the last NCAA national championship of 2011-2012 is still in the midst of being decided. There are only 8 teams left as they will battle it out in a winner takes all double elimination format bracket in Omaha, Nebraska.
Florida Gators- It is no surprise that the blue and orange team from Gainesville has made it this far. They were the preseason number 1 team in America, and while not even winning the SEC East, have dominated in the NCAA Tournament and look to use their experience from the gauntlet of the SEC to win it all.
South Carolina Gamecocks- This team is the two time defending national champions, so they definitely have some experience winning in Omaha. They will be hard to take down as no one the past 3 years has proven they can eliminate this team from the post season.
UCLA Bruins- One of the two west coast representatives in this years’ CWS, the Bruins have floated under the radar for most of this season, and seem to be a weaker favorite than the rest.
Florida State- The Seminoles are another fiercely competitive team and have experience against in state rival Florida. They will be a tough out.
Arizona Wildcats- The lame version of the Wildcats are also in Omaha. This team has crazy offensive firepower and are going to need to score early and often to stay alive.
Arkansas Razorbacks- At the start of this postseason, no one expected the Hogs to be here. They were the first team eliminated in the SEC Tournament, and were extremely inconsistent throughout SEC play. They are led by one of the best coaches in the country and look to keep their momentum riding.
Kent State Golden Flashes- Us big blue fans are all too familiar with this team. The Golden Flashes are undoubtedly the hottest team in the nation, winning 23 or their last 24 games. They are complete, and a great baseball team.
Stony Brook- Benefiting from the easiest number 1 seed in the field (Miami) the Seawolves then went on to shock the nation upsetting LSU in Baton Rouge. They look to continue the upsets in Omaha.
