Thanks and congrats. I seriously did not watch after the terrible one sided calls when the game was on the line for both teams in the 3rd and 4th. Tonight was my last day on vacation in Michigan. We walked down to a lighthouse and watch the most beautiful sunset. Followed by ice cream cones.

Now it's time to move on to college football. (Some good MLB games but as time moves on, just hard to follow it all...if I remember to take my pills, put down the toilet seat and stay off ladders...that's a good day's work.)

Could be a great series this year. I think Oregon State is positioning themselves very well. Repeating is tough.

Oregon st #2 and Ark #7 in today’s poll. Rematch maybe? Hopefully Arkansas can catch a foul ball this year...especially if that foul ball wins you a national championship.

That was a tough time for that to happen. I would like to see a rematch and is entirely possible.

This Arkansas team is on fire and better than the team that was a missed foul ball away from winning the whole thing. You know how baseball is though..they could get knocked out quickly.

But man they are playing well and creaming top 5, top 19, and top 20 teams recently.

Won 10 of last 11. Swept #5 Miss State, swept #18 Tennessee, beat #17 LSU tonight 14-4.

Ark up to #4 in rankings and should be a national seed if they keep this up for a few more games. And they just don’t lose at home very often.

Arkansas has one of the best college ball parks in the country. Love watching games there. Hoping for another trip to Omaha.

Oregon State is struggling. They are in jeopardy of not making it. UCLA is this year's powerhouse and the team to be reckoned with. Their bats have failed them. Sometimes they look complacent. Adley Rutschman, their catcher, maybe the best player in the country, certainly a first-round draft pick. But tough for one guy to carry the team. If they find some moxie, they could do it, but if two players could decide which one should catch the foul ball, they could have too.

Arkansas, Vanderbilt, and UCLA are all 6-1 odds of winning college World Series according to Vegas. We shall see.

Oregon State may host a regional tournament...somewhere around 12 or so in the rankings. Last three games with UCLA are big but guess we will know Monday. I am not counting the Beavers out, however. They have been lethargic and not stepping up. That may change. Going to be a long journey. Not putting much stock in Vegas odds before they start taking bets. Happens in all sports....follow the money, only when it starts to flow.
