    Much as I'm rooting for Michigan to win the 2019 CWS after taking down UCLA in the Super Regionals, it's clear this CWS is the SEC conference's to lose. They brought 50% of the teams for crying out loud, that's ridiculous:

    Vanderbilt, Auburn, Arkansas and Mississippi State.

    In bracket 1 for the tournament you have:

    Texas Tech, Michigan, Arkansas and Florida State. So SEC just has a 1/4 chance of advancing there, unlikely.

    In bracket 2 for the tournament you have:

    Vanderbilt, Louisville, Mississippi State and Auburn. Very heavy with SEC teams. 3/4 chance is extremely likely.

    And Vandy is the tournament favorite now with UCLA out. But really any of these SEC teams have a shot in the double elimination to get to the finals for a best of three series. To play either a non-SEC team, or Arkansas.


    My prediction is a Michigan v Vanderbilt final. Gotta better pairing you'd rather see?

    Do have some update with this. Auburn and Arkansas are eliminated. So just Vandy and Miss State representing SEC now. So for sure bracket 1 won't be SEC.

    6 teams remain. Only Michigan, Vanderbilt and Miss State haven't lost. So Florida State, Texas Tech and Louisville are 1 loss away from elimination.

    Sets up nicely for a Michigan/Vanderbilt final, which I agree seems the most likely.

    Florida State's out! One step closer to Michigan continuing their awesome run.

    I walked past ESPN to see the ticker 'Michigan 15, Texas Tech 3'. WOW. Hard to imagine anyone beating Michigan in the final with all the momentum they have on their side right now.

    Will be a Vanderbilt v Michigan final after all.
