Hogs just have to make it interesting.  How about a six run 9th? 

Guess not.

The consensus seemed to be as long as we didn't get swept we were pretty much guaranteed a to host a super. So we should be in good shape.

As long as they win the regional.

Maybe it's just me but I really hate it when people say "hosting a super" when they mean "top 8 seed" or "national seed." We are not guaranteed to host a super regional because we are not guaranteed to even be playing in a super regional.

Georgia jumped on a LOT of first pitches last night. And most went for singles. Maybe we should start off with a curve or something other than a fastball down the middle today.

Murphy throws a lot of first pitch strikes also. I expect them to do the same today.

While in the pet peeve department, ...

I've never cared for "national seed."  Everyone gets seeded within a regional and they essentially seed 16 national seeds for hosting purposes and potential pairings for supers, si?
*                  *                    *
Regarding first pitch astrikes, in George Will's book Men at Work he quotes Orel Hershiser as saying he thinks getting the first pitch over consistently is overrated and maybe counter-productive.  He said his "rule" was to make sure one of the first two was over.

By the way, the book is excellent and has nothing to do with politics.  Will breaks down the sport to its four basic components, managing, pitching, hitting, and fielding, and analyzes the way four of its then stars approach those area, one person per area: manager Tony La Russa, pitcher Orel Hershiser, outfielder Tony Gwynn, and shortstop Cal Ripken Jr.

It's also got a lot of interesting stats, like the percentage of the time the batting team scores when the leadoff man reaches vs. when he doesn't.  Or the percentage of how often the winning team scores more runs in their biggest inning than the loser scores the whole game.

Will's premise was that while fans romanticise baseball (himself included), fans need to remember that to the players it is a job and that almost all of the very best approach the game very seriously.  Thus the title of the book.  E.g., apparently the library of VCR tapes Gwynn had and the way they were broken down was incredible.  He'd watch, e.g. film of what a particular pitcher threw on a 2-2 count with bases empty.  With men on base, etc.  He'd watch film of himself in situations broken down the same way.  He could hit pitches he wasn't expecting because he was a great hitter but way more often he could anticipate what a guy would throw in a spot because of his personal approach to scouting (in the pre-digital age).

Anyway, it's a great read.

"National seed" was just a way to differentiate from the other "1 seeds." In effect those 8 teams are "national #1s" and the other teams are "regional #1s". Now 16 teams will be overall, or "nationally" seeded. I don't know if "national seed" for a top 8 seed will stick or not.

Maybe we should bring the "homefield advantage" language from MLB to college. "Homefield through Omaha" or something like that.

We need to jump on these guys early today and hope our defense doesn't make our pitcher have long innings like yesterday. A couple of times yesterday, Knight could have had a very short inning and errors screwed it up.
