    LSU (45-16), Baton Rouge, La.
    Florida (39-20), Gainesville, Fla.
    Mississippi (40-17), Oxford, Miss.

    North Carolina (42-16), Chapel Hill, N.C.
    Georgia Tech (35-17-1), Atlanta

    Cal State Fullerton (41-14), Fullerton, Calif.

    Conference USA:
    Rice (39-15), Houston
    East Carolina (42-17), Greenville, N.C.

    Mountain West:

    Pac-10 Teams:
    Arizona State (43-12), Tempe, Ariz.
By virtue of being awarded a regional, all 16 host institutions have also been selected to the 64-team field.

The remaining at-large teams, top-eight national seeds, first-round regional pairings and site assignments will be announced at 12:30 p.m. ET, Monday, May 25 on ESPN. The selection committee will set the entire 64-team bracket through both the super regionals and the first round of the Men's College World Series, and will not reseed the field after play begins.

I think UGA is likely going to the Atlanta Regional. If GT is named a national seed, they might ship us elsewhere. Regardless, I think we'll be in an ACC site for the regional.

Ga Southern is up on Elon 3-0 right now for their conference championship. They will be a 2 seed in the GT or FSU regional and we will go to the other one. I think we end up in Tally. South Carolina will go to the Clemson regional.

When you look at how many 2 seed caliber teams are located in the Southeast (meaning almost all of them), you realize that somebody is going out west to fill the ASU, UC-I and CSF brackets.

I put my money on us going to Clemson and USC going to Atlanta with the two set up to meet in the supers.

Anon 5:29,

They wouldn't match up two ACC 1-seeds in a Super, but that's not going to be possible anyway because neither Clemson nor Georgia Tech are going to be national seeds. The national seeds will be:

Arizona State
North Carolina

FSU, Rice, Florida and Ole Miss duking it out for the last two national seeds, with FSU and Rice being the likely picks.

Kendall Rogers predicts UGA going out to Arizona State as a #2 seed. I don't think it is too far-fetched....if the Dawgs are fortunate enough to get a #2 seed, they could be punished by having to make a long trip. To be honest, I hope that happens. This team probably needs to play far, far away from this part of the country.

Yea, the collegebaseballblog has us going to Tally with Vandy going to Tempe.

His projections also have KSU hosting a regional. They aren't. We'll see. It wouldn't shock me to be at Clemson, FSU, or Tech.

I think ECU is going to be a #2 seed in their own region with UVA potentially being a #1 as a road team.

As expected Dawgs are going to the tally regional.
