College Baseball Bracketology: Regional Projections April 9th

Projections for the 2015 NCAA baseball regionals.

Online Athens

With the NCAA Tournament selection show less than six weeks away, I figured now would be a good time to unveil my regional projections for 2015. Here's how it works: 31 teams earn an automatic bid by winning their conference tournament, with the rare exceptions of the Pac-12, Big West and Ivy league who just send a regular season champion. Then the other 33 teams earn at-large bids as decided by the selection committee, pretty similar to basketball.

Only 64 teams make the field so there has to be some snubs. Arizona, Mississippi State, Texas Tech and St. Louis are the teams I have as my first four out. Say what you want, but honestly it came down to the number of quality wins, which these team didn't have many. I would love to hear from you in the comments if you disagree with any of these picks.
