    NCAA tourney thread (post UT loss)

    Vanderbilt just rewrote the record book. They won everything possible and could repeat as National Champions next year. While Tennessee is improving to get to that level it would take much longer than 3 years. Think of it this way Tennessee had more losses before May than Vanderbilt did the...

    Really? I make up stuff, then why when someone tells you their actual experience with Vanderbilt baseball records recruiting and financing, then you basically call them a liar and say his kid wasn’t good enough? If you know more than someone who experienced it then please let us know. I am not...

    You insinuated it as “cheating” by claiming they give out huge discounts to baseball players with rich parents. Anyone who knows anything about travel ball knows it’s damn expensive and necessary to get a kid recognized by college recruiters. So to claim they give out a free ride to Tracy...

    He has made it in his own mind that they are “cheating” and it cannot be changed. Vanderbilt uses the scholarships to lower their ridiculous tuition costs but not give full rides. Plus he is coming from a false premise that if all teams had 25-30 full ride scholarships that Vanderbilt would...

    Vanderbilt had never won a best of 3 playoff series when losing the 1st game of the series. They won both times this year.

    What a strike zone after that HR. Vanderbilt batters never had a chance if that’s getting called

    FYI: They were ranked in the preseason top 20 it’s more like they played bad for stretches of their season. I think they could complete in the SEC. winning 10 games in the SEC is tough and 2/3’s of the way to a Regional bid. Vanderbilt with Rocker may already have that for next 2 years.

    Major props to Jake Mangum for telling the NCAA off. The Baseball tournament is the #2 money maker for the NCAA and the 11.7 scholarship limit is a joke along with the unpaid coaches. It’s time to commit to the sport and support it as a full ride.

    I thought he was in trouble when the F bombs at Vanderbilt’s bench started flying. It’s ok to fire up your own team and celebrate but taunting a team like Vanderbilt is not smart. Talking trash is just not a baseball thing normally. Edit: After watching the highlights on SEC Network I noticed he...

    With today’s win they are a ridiculous 28-7 vs SEC competition. Also watching Texas Tech vs FSU and there are lots of whistlers in the crowd tonight.

    In my opinion, MSU or Vandy got the shaft

    The reason I said the Sweet 16 is because there is a break in the tournament before then. At the elite 8 level it would be almost impossible to reseed in basketball as teams play on different nights in that weekend. According to the seeding the 2 best teams remaining are Arkansas and Vanderbilt...

    It would be like re-seeding the basketball tournament before the Sweet 16. Plus The NCAA doesn’t re-seed in any sport. Really the tournament works great now. 1st round: 4 team Regional with 1 team advancing 2nd round: 2 team Super Regional 3rd round: Another 4 team Regional 4th round another...

    No the bracket is fixed. Louisville is the #7 seed and Vanderbilt plays them 1st.

    In my opinion, MSU or Vandy got the shaft

    Vanderbilt is the 2 seed and Miss St is the 6 Arkansas is the the 4 What makes it look favorable to the Hogs is that the #1 UCLA lost to a mediocre Michigan team. 5 National Seeds advanced 3 are on the Vanderbilt/Ms St side of the bracket

    Not a lot of love for the whistler

    Yeah Jeff Pack is the more infamous one as he is the guy that creates the hate. The one with the van (Preacher Franklin) is actually the original whistler that just does it during certain times to get the crowd going. Franklin gets the hate and has toned it down over the years.
