Great game. Go Canes!

Hurricane Mitch

People can stay with me. I'm about 10 minutes south of Rosenblatt. 86, I'm working on tickets and passes. Can't give you a guarantee, but I'll see what I can do.

Cat5 Cane

Go Canes.... later all

MattInNY

Hotels I can get. I am Platinum at Marriott and I have a guarantee for any hotel. Basicly they boot people out of their reservation if I want a room.

SOUP

MITCH...LET ME KNOW ASAP!

AvaCane96

can someone here explain how the CWS works?? is it a bunch of 3 game series?? or single game elimination?? or what??

NavyCane4Life

Double Elimination, except for the Championship Series

NavyCane4Life

Championship Series is best of 3

AvaCane96

k thanks Minn

MattinNY

Ava...there are 2 brackets and its double elimination, juet like regional play. The 2 teams that come out of each bracket than play a 3 game series to determine the champion, just like super regional play.

AvaCane96

thanks guys

GO CANES

Alex D

Maybe this is a sign of good things to come for the football team this fall. First, you have the basketball team making the NCAA post-season tournament and now the baseball team is going to the college world series. Way to go Canes!

Jer

Oh man, ok I just got done dancing around. Go Canes!!! Can't wait for Georgia! My neighbors are going to be soooo unhappy with Miami!

NavyCane4Life

I remember watching Miami win the 1999 and 2001 Championships in Omaha, but I can't make it to Omaha this year. Went last year hoping they would make it, but they didnt, so I cheered for NC because of the ACC connection. The CWS is a great venue and wesome environment. GO CANES!

SOUP

Mithc ...I was just messing with U. I can NOT make it to Omaha.

But Other 'Spacers like MattinNY and JC and others may want to go.

CONTACT Mitch if U want to go...

I do have to say we might have had one of the toughest regionals and super regionals but we are definitely on the easier side of the 2 brackets in Omaha. Look at the other side of the bracket...UNC, Rice, Arizona St. (They will take care of Fresno tonight) and either LSU or UC Irvine.

Our side is us, Georgia, FSU and Stanford.

Jer

So your saying that FSU is our only comp Matt?

MattinNY

Thats what I am saying. Georgia has been inconsistant as of late and I just think Stanford is weak too. It will be us and FSU to come out of the bracket.

On the other side who the heck knows, those are some stacked teams over there and they are all very good. Arizona St., UNC and Rice are all top 5 teams.

Jer

Yeah, that's the way they've been playing lately.

It is Jer. Take a look bro and you will see a 7-6 record their last 13 games. Inconsistant.

OCALACANE

I also want to give a shout or SHHHH to the Arizona Wildcats great series!!!
A worthy opponent!!

OCALACANE

86... U on?

Even though we beat them I'll give some respect to Zona and that blogger he had some respect and I will respect his team and him. They had some great pitching and I'm even more proud that we had to go threw them to the CWS. Props Zona.

Watching the NBA game now and I'm sure
Darc is happy at this point.

congrats to the baseball team. I wish I could make it to Omaha. GO CANES!

Jer

BREAKING NEWS: ROBERT MARVE WAS SITTING IN THE RIGHT FIELD BULLPEN SEATS. HE WAS TALKING SH#T TO THE NUMBER 4 GUY THAT TOLD THE CROWD TO SHUT UP IN THE 1ST GAME. I LOVE THIS GUY!

I totally agree with Jer!

Jer

Thank you Montreal. We are the best and I have faith in Haith.... No I have faith in Morris. He knows what to do and he is the king when it comes to this part of the season. Go U!

Jer

I can't wait to represent the U to my friends, family and fellow employees. Go Canes!

Montreal-Cane

UM will face No. 8 seed Georgia on Saturday to start its College World Series action.

The College World Series runs from June 14-25.

SJMPARMAN

Way to go Canes! Great pitching, solid defense, jumped on them early, everything we needed to do. That was a very entertaining series. I want to second the kudos to the Arizona team. Those guys were a very good team. If they had faced any other team, they would be in the CWS. We just were the better team overall. We did such a great job keeping runners from scoring tonight.

I am headed to Phoenix tomorrow and will wear my Canes stuff proudly all week. I won't be popular but I am proud!

Jer

Props SJMPARMAN!!!

Zona was really tough.

Jer

Definitely PB. I'm happy we got past them.

Fresno State 7 Arizona State 5 in the 5th...

Jer

Watching that game. Wow I like their stadium. Hope the Light is remade like it.

Loco

Great game last night, was in the keys so i didn't get to watch it, but had a friend updating me... I'm pretty sure all of key largo heard that we won lol

Great game tonight too, got back too late to get tix but watched it on ESPN 2, it was amazing. On to Omaha!

Now everyone will see that the ACC (us) is better than the SEC (Georgia)

Carlos

what's up everyone....

- Good to finally meet 86 & his brother, Ocala, Cat5, Ricky and to see Ronald, Keoki, & Ronald again. Let me know when the next get together is and I'm there. 1st round is on me and you can vault it. :)

- Best moment of the night: Seeing that french fairy Gaston weeping after his team lost. SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! LOL

- If anyone sees those Zona trolls who were here after game 1, be sure to make 'em eat some of that tasty crow. mmmmmmMMMMM b1tch!

- Weeks almost booted the game for us with that error to lead off the 9th. imo, He'll follow the same path as Ryan Braun & Pat Burrell and end up in the outfield UNLESS he gets a good infield coach to help polish his D. He has soft hands and a quick release on a D.P. but his problem is he tends to sit on his heels waiting for the ball to play him. In the show, if you can get a guy with solid hands to play that position, they'll just move over the error prone guy to the outfield b/c they don't want to lose his bat in the lineup. Weeks has been on fire offensively.

- That was probably the best pitching we'll face all year. That said, we were pretty fortunate not to face Schlereth. But we faced arguably the best bullpen in the nation and got it done. We scored 30 runs vs. UNC and killed their ace.

Six

Georgia - 3 times in the past 5 years, they've been in Omaha

- They handled NC State 11-4 and 17-8 in the Super Regional

- Swept Clemson, South Carolina and Kentucky this year

- Lost 2 of 3 to Arizona .. 1-7 and 8-9

- Took 2 of 3 against Ole Miss, but lost to them in the SEC Tournament

- Took 2 of 3 against Vandy

- Took 3 of 4 against Georgia Tech

- Took 2 of 3 against LSU, the 3rd game ended in a tie in 12 innings due to travel curfew

Their main player is obviously Gordon Beckham - the guy went 8th overall in the draft and was the SEC Player of the Year. He's hitting .401 with 101 hits, 26 HR, 72 RBI and 90 runs. His on base percentage is .513.

Their closer Joshua Fields went 20th overall to the Mariners. His ERA is 2.76 in 31 appearances. He has 16 saves in 32 innings pitched, with 59 K's and 20 walks. Opponents are hitting .125 against him.

As of June 8th ..
- UGA has 5 guys hitting over .330
- UGA has 4 guys with over 90 hits
- UGA has almost 5 guys with over 30 walks - the 5th has 29 walks

As of June 3rd, b/c the Miami Sports Info Dept. is slow ..
- The U has 4 guys hitting over .330
- The U has NO ONE with over 90 hits - Sobolewski is the closest with 88 and Yonder is the next closest with 79 ... (Sobolewski went 4-15 in the Super Regional, so that would put him over 90 hits ... Yonder went 3-10 in the Super Regional, so that would put him at 82 hits)
- The U has 3 guys with over 30 walks


So, UGA has some guys that can hit and that also draw walks. If you have over half of your lineup hitting over .330 and four of those guys have over 90 hits for the year ... they're doing something right.

Nothing like humble pie to throw in their face. Don't know which one is better, Gaston ballin' for loosi'n (payback for the shhhh)

Our coach is a class act all the way and thus our team is also.
But, that Asisona Team was a tough matchup -- even they can't keep the U from their "destiny."
