"This is no junior college. This is the notorious University of Miami.” -- Marlins starter Dontrelle Willis, after getting knocked around for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Canes.

Super Regional Coverage

I suppose that now would be my last chance to clean up my predictions for the weekend, but I'll let them stand.

ESPN has some nice coverage of this weekend's games. There's a preview of each series with anonymous commentary from different coaches. The anonymity seems to make the insight pretty specific. Here are the links:

Miami - Nebraska
FSU - UF
Rice - Tulane
Tennessee - Georgia Tech
Southern Cal - Oregon State
Arizona State - Fullerton
Texas - Mississippi
Clemson - Baylor

Schedules for each series are listed in the previews above, but a composite schedule can be found here.

Over at Boyd's World, there's a nice article about this weekend's slate of games. What's possibly the most interesting is that--per Boyd's numbers--Oregon State and Cal State Fullerton are co-favorites to win the title, at least at this point.

Miami gets underway at 1 PM today. Cesar Carrillo will start for the Canes, but rumors have circulated this week that the Huskers will save their ace for the Saturday (or Sunday) game. They'd have to be pretty confident about winning the final two games to try that strategy.

    It is time to renew old acquaintances in New Orleans, hopefully not the team to Bourbon Street or at least until the series is over, and play once again at Turchin Stadium.

    Tulane is the real deal and that is proven. Rice maybe the real deal too but that is not proven. It is always fun playing our Louisiana neighbors, the games are normally exciting.

    It should be interesting.

    I should have been watching the Rice game this afternoon instead of the Canes. Rice is up 6-0 after 2 and Miami is down 5-1.

    It looks like I could become an Owls fan the rest of the way pretty shortly.
