wow, I bet you are: living in AR (close to the university) we certainly follow it closely as we did for years in Ca. We were USC fans (still are) but obviously now our hearts are with Arkansas....

The Cardinals' present facility is old and rundown and in need of expensive updates, and attendance in recent years has been disappointing, despite the Cardinals' recent championship seasons.
Our son would have gone to EYSU had he not signed a pro contract just weeks before the fall semester 30 years ago.

You need to come down and watch the Gamecocks play Clemson in Columbia, we have a beautiful stadium and have won the college world series the last two years.

I do like to watch college baseball. In fact, I may try to catch some Fullerton games. The Dodgers are too far to watch often, and I despise the Angels. Plus, college ball can be very entertaining. Heck, I watch high school ball on TV sometimes as we have a local channel that airs them.

I go to USC in Columbia and baseball is pretty big here. It's not as big as football by any means, but baseball is our claim to fame over the past couple of years. Loved watching the CWS.

Admittedly, I haven't been to a game in person. I've watched a couple on TV. It is somewhat difficult to get tickets to a baseball game. I think there are only 750 student tickets.

No. 1 seed Miami to host baseball regional that includes UCF as No. 2 seed - Orlando Sentinel

For the first time in four years, the Miami Hurricanes’ path to the College World Series won’t be blocked by the Florida Gators.The ‘Canes, who were eliminated by their in-state rival, and this year’s No. 1 overall seed, in the regionals or super regionals each of the past three years, will host a regional this weekend that includes No. 2 seed Central Florida, No. 3 Missouri State and No. 4 Stony Brook.The will open against Stony Brook at Alex Rodriguez Park on Friday. Should the ‘Canes win the Coral Gables Regional, they’d play the winner of the Baton Rouge Regional that includes No. 1 seed LSU, as well as Oregon State, Louisiana-Monroe and Belmont, to advance to the College World Series for the first time since 2008.Miami was 1-1 against Central Florida this season, beating the Knights 3-2 in Orlando on March 14 and losing 4-1 in Coral Gables.

Been a while Since Miami has made it to Omaha, actually looks like a good shot that 3 Florida teams may make the trip this year.

I think the NCAA has been doing a better job of advertising the playoffs in baseball, though the regular season is still overlooked at a lot of D-I universities. The regional tournaments are doing fairly well in the 16 locations where they are being played, anyway.

In Oregon, college baseball has been moderately successful. The Oregon State University Beavers won the CWS in 2006 and 2007, and that created a lot of interest compared to previous years. There is also a small college called George Fox whose baseball team won the DIII tournament in 2004.
