Thanks Borgguy. Good job.

Obviously I am biased regarding the Heels. You have done a good job showing the challenge Stanford faces coming into the Bosh. But I think there are two points deserving more emphasis. First is the home field advantage. Just three loses all season, two of them to Miami. UNC is undefeated at home in regional play since 2006.

Second, Patrick Johnson is pitching better than his 12-1 record. In his last three outings, 23 scoreless innings on just 6 hits: a CG 3H shutout of UVA, 6 no hit innings against Wake, and 8 innings allowing 3H in 14-0 win over James Madison. Freshman pitcher Kent Emmanuel isn't too far behind, though he gave up two runs to UVA in the ACCT in a game marred by UNC's 2 errors; he last went 8 innings, 7 hits, in 4-0 win over Maine.


first thank you

second these are excellent points and part of why im picking the 'Heels to win in 2

hope to meet you in the first round of the CWS!

ASU 1-2 Fork Off (I'll be there)
CAL 2-0 These are the comeback kids. I was sitting right behind the dugout last Monday. These guys have moxy.
OSU 0-2 (sorry guys...just how I see it)
STAN 1-2
Tie breaker: 25

My baseball picks this year are kinda like my stock picks. If I go long on a stock ya better short it! I've been bottom feeding with ya'll most of the year. If I pick a team to loose, ya can pretty much bet they will take home the bacon.


if thats the case then, i like the beavers chances to win!

best thing ive heard abotu pat casey and the beavers this comes from baseball americas scouting report of the beavs for the SR, so i have no idea who said it, but i love it

"They know how to do one thing: They know how to win. And they know how to win in big moments. They're not dangerous on paper; they're just dangerous to play."

stan falls 5-2 played close to the end (at least it looked that way on Gametracker) had a chance after getting 2 to pull within 1 in the top of the 8th but gave them back up in the bottom half. next up ASU at texas in about 45 minutes....

you know ASU was JUST thinking that myself today (already bought my tix to this years CW looking forward to a new year, and our new brethern out in the mountains this year. sad to hear about the devils being ineligable, but that means yall are playing for pride and have nothing to lose, which is going to make you even MORE dangerous than normal.

connor, if you wish to start your own weekly national prediction contest here @ PG you are more than welcome to do so. all you would have to do is start a thread with that as the subject line and see who responds, you may be surprised. i for one would be willing to give it a shot, and while i cant speak for the rest of the Pac12 gang, i think most might be willing to try. talk with Dodger Matt (he runs the Pac12 one) once we get going for some tips and pointers on how best to run it (from what i understand it is time consuming) looking forward to seeing you on the pac12 thread!

honestly dont know how the beavs are going to do this year, will have some pretty big shoes to fill, but a solid incoming class does leave room for optimism, as usual beavs will be top tier in conference, and may even win the auto bid (with ASU being ineligable) but its going to be a tough fight (we will get revenge on the Duckies though!)

  • Arizona 3, North Dakota State 1: Upset of the day! North Dakota State’s Luke Anderson held the Wildcats to two hits and two runs over 7 full innings and gave the Bison a chance. That chance came up big in the 8th when the Arizona bullpen wasted Konner Wade’s strong effort (7.1 IP, 2 ER, 13 K, 2 H) by surrendering 6 earned runs, and the Bison upended the Wildcats for their first-ever win over a ranked Division I team. Kyle Kleinendorst led the Bison, going 1 for 3 with 2 runs, 3 RBIs, a homer (his first at the collegiate level), and a walk.
    Series tied 1-1.

Vandy 2-1 Duckies squeak one out, but vandy rebounds from tough loss

Cal 3-0 going on a limb here

UCI 2-1 huskies no match for anteaters

ASU 3-0 if the devils drop one its cuz they mailed it in

Utah 2-1 split with huskers take care of north dakota
