Incredible stat:
With #1 Florida eliminated by Arkansas last night that makes it 19 straight years the number 1 seed has gone home empty handed. (Includes Tulane in ‘05) only Miami in 1999 has won as a number one seed.

That's b/c in this sport you don't always have the best starter on the mound for every game. In the other sports you have your same starters for every game. Not the case in baseball at the most important position.

Ok NCAA basketball UVA Number 1 seed in hoops lost first round to UMBC this past season.

That's not 19 years in a row. It's called an upset. One in fact that was long overdue with a 16 finally beating a 1. LOL.

Well when any number 1 loses it’s called an upset. 19 straight is long overdue for a number 1 to finally win but the streak continues.

Damn, T, how is that germane to your your original post? Just because Win brought the logical response you just had to try to one-up him?

That this thread is going to turn in into another tps/ww pissing match is entirely your fault this time.

I'll see myself out now. Image
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

CWS tidbit
Tulane beat both of the head coaches in tonight's CWS final in its two CWS appearances. Van Horn when he was at Nebraska in '01 and Casey in '05 with OSU.

I'd almost rather not go to the CWS than to lose it like Arky did.

No doubt. Will go down as one of the most unforgettable plays in CWS history right next to Warren Morris Hr vs Miami.
