College Baseball Bracketology: Regional Projections May 15th

New, 2 comments

Regional projections for the 2015 NCAA baseball tournament as of May 15th.

Online Athens

With the NCAA tournament selection show a little more than a week away the field is starting to take some form. LSU has done everything but lock down the No. 1 overall seed after they have dominated the nation's best conference all season long.

The biggest story in the field has got to be the incredible depth from the Big Ten conference. What used to be a one or two bid league has now blossomed into a conference that I'm projecting six teams to make the field.

In honor of my sister's graduation from Cal State Fullerton this weekend I have decided to put them in the field for the first time this year, also they won a series over UCSB last weekend and completely deserve to be in the field.

As for Oklahoma State, it has pretty much locked up a spot as a regional host, barring a late-season meltdown. A series win over Michigan this weekend will in all likelihood guarantee that Stillwater will be a regional site for the second consecutive season. Looking down the road, this would set up OSU for a potential super regional matchup with Florida State.
