I dunno, it seems like a pretty good consolation prize to go back to some Texas BBQ.

And I say that as someone who dislikes the state of Texas on principle. I just love barbecue more.

What's the deal with Virginia and TCU being on the same side of the bracket? They were the only two nationally seeded teams (out of eight: Virginia was the #3 seed and TCU was #7) to make it to the CWS. Shouldn't they be on different sides? I guess they must seed all 64 teams going into the regionals and stick to that through to the end, but beyond the top eight and then the 4-team breakdowns for each regional, I don't think I've ever seen any kind of national bracket or seeding laid out for baseball.

Kind of weird not seeing any West Coast teams either, isn't it?

So I'm guessing UC-Irvine is the University of Connecticut at Irvine then?

Not too hard - Texas has yet to understand what BBQ is, anyway.

DOH! The Anteaters! They knocked off Okie State, right? How the hell did I count to eight and leave them out? Sheesh, what a maroon.

Beef and pork are BBQ, Texas and the Southeast have it right.  It is Kansas City that does not understand BBQ

BBQ's a verb, not a noun.

You answered your own question. They don't rearrange the brackets.  They have 16 4-team regionals each has a number 1 seed, but then 8 of those regional #1s are not only #1 seeds in their regional but top 8 seeds nationally.  They get protection in the sense that top 8 national seeds don't face each other before Omaha (and usually host their regional and super-regional tournaments).

I've been a college baseball fan a LONG time. Been to Omaha often. I've never seen a year like this. The regional tournaments were a bloodbath for top-seeded teams. Oregon State, Rice, LSU, Florida State, Florida, Indiana, Miami, Cal Poly, and South Carolina all lost their regional tourneys.  Lots of those were top 8 national seeds. Crazy days and it does make the Omaha bracket look weird. It should be a good tournament. I think Texas is probably the favorite but it's a fairly even field.

For those of you who know the CWS, "2 and BBQ" means, it's a double elimination format. You lose twice, you go home and eat BBQ.

Anyone who uses the words barbecued chicken has no clue what actual bbq is.

You are both missing out. Done right both beef and pork BBQ are good. Of course sauce is important but great BBQ can get by with average sauce but average BBQ cannot get by with great sauce. Unlike Chicken Fired Steak , for example, where the quality of the gravy is of utmost importance.

And for the record BBQ should never have the word lean in its description.

Sauce is nigh irrelevant with good BBQ.   If you are from a region where the defining trait of your BBQ is the sauce, then your BBQ is shiat.

Yeah, but like I said, I've just never seen it laid out in a full 64-team bracket as for basketball. I probably only noticed the imbalance this year because of the lack of top seeds. With only two seeded teams and them on the same side of the CWS bracket, it stands out more. "Bloodbath" is a good word for what happened to host teams.

I wonder if Texas would have a starting first baseman with such a crappy BA if his last name wasn't "Clemens"?

I assume the reason for this is because good lord, that bracket would be large and confusing.

/ although, i'm not a fan of hyperbole.  I wouldn't say saucy bbq is shiat.  i've had worse foods in my life.  it's just not comparable to the greatness of bbq prepared by people who have the necessary talent to showcase the meat and method, not the list of bulk seasonings.
// fark, i love bbq shrimp, and that doesn't even involve a grill.  (in the new orleans style)
