College World Series, The Final Four

CWS Final4

Four teams have made their way to the final grouping out of the field of 64 from which we started.  Not all four are equal, though, as Texas and Ole Miss are still technically playing from the loser’s bracket and need to beat Vanderbilt and Virginia, respectively, twice to move on to the Championship series–which will start on Monday night.  All four teams will be in action today.  Vanderbilt and Texas will play in the afternoon and Virginia and Ole Miss will be the prime time nightcap–see, I say nightcap along with prime time because I’m married with kids and I don’t party like you young folks do.
