College Baseball

So I was at a seminar at Oregon State University yesterday where I had a small part. Somewhere in my prattle, I mentioned college baseball, which I find much more interesting than my given topic and gave a rousing endorsement to the Beavers who have started out of the gates strong and look to be in the hunt. I predicted this is the year for the Beavers. After the session people come and ask questions and do the normal things. One guy, I am guessing he was about 35 came to me and said, "There is no use in getting excited, Flordia State is going to take it all." (I can't make this stuff up.) I immediately ask him if Mr. Billybud put him up to this. He looked at me like, what the heck are you talking about.

Now I am convinced Mr. Billybud is the head of the Illuminati and has legions he lets loose. Is there no escape. (This guy claimed not association with Flordia State, just his outlook. I assured him he at least paid attention to the most important part of the presentation and he best put his money on Oregon State, "Nope," he said.

Oregon State's baseball fans memories are long and FSU fans are not all as realistic as Mr. Billybud.

And besides living in the past is what I do best.

However..the projected top 16 do include...

Oregon State
Clemson
UNC
NC State
FSU

The projected #1 seeds include UNC, FSU, Clemson, NC State, Duke

So...#4 in the ACC ain't that bad.
