College Baseball Bracketology: Regional Projections May 18th

New, 7 comments

Regional projections for the 2015 NCAA baseball tournament as of May 18th.

Online Athens

The selection show is now less than a week away and things are heating up. Conference tournaments will start on Tuesday and the field will take it's form very soon.  LSU is still the No. 1 overall seed and that will likely not change even if they drop out in the first round of the SEC tournament.

Houston is making its first appearance as a regional host, but they will need to a strong weekend in the AAC tournament to keep that place. Dallas Baptist will likely be a national seed as long as they keep the top spot in the RPI.

As for Oklahoma State, it will be comfortably hosting a regional no matter what happens in the Big 12 tournament. If they are able to beat TCU and win the tournament the likelihood of being a national seed drastically increases. Unless Oklahoma or Texas Tech makes a run in the conference tournament the Big 12 will only be a two-bid league this season.

Last Four in: Southern Mississippi, Kentucky, UNC Wilmington and Michigan State.
