College Baseball Bracketology: Regional Projections May 8th

New, 3 comments

Regional projections for the 2015 NCAA baseball tournament.

Online Athens

The NCAA Tournament selection show is less than three weeks away and it's shaping up to be an exciting finish in most conference races. The gap between the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds in most regions is very slim, which shows just how competitive this field could be.

No big surprises with any of the regional hosts as I think the top 16 or so in the country have separated themselves, but after that things will get a little messy.

As for Oklahoma State, this is the first week I don't have them as the automatic bid from the Big 12, but they are still comfortably in the field as a regional host. TCU takes home the auto bid due to percentage points in the conference standings. This also marks the first week that I've only slated two bids from the Big 12. Texas Tech and Oklahoma just aren't doing enough to be in the field at this point. Barring a run from either team in the conference tournament this will be a two-bid league.
