Last year and next year. ESPN only invites teams a maximum 2 out of every 3 years. The teams that were there both last year and this year will not be eligible next year. The full field is supposed to be announced Sunday night during the FSU game.
No sir, it has nothing to do with cost. The tournament could not guarantee that we would have reliable internet access to use for an audio broadcast of every game down there. There were issues with it last year for the teams that went. The 4G wireless card that I use as a backup would not work in Mexico. So we made the decision not to broadcast this weekend. Out of a 56-game regular season schedule, we will broadcast 51 games, the 5 in Mexico are the only exceptions.
Two tough games tonight without our top pitcher, but we'll see how well we can do right now. I say right now because the team we are right now will not be indicative of the team we'll be by the time the SEC season starts or by the end of the season. Getting Rogers back and the continuing experience of the freshmen will only get better with every chance they get to play or practice. Very confident that this team will be make another super regional and hopefully a World Series.
