    This LSU site has the pairings up, and there's a pdf file for the bracket attached (though the right side where GU is is clipped short.)

    Edited to add: This pdf file from Chron.com for the bracket is easier to read.

    Remember, it's double elimination - which means the last team in each group of 4 w/o 2 losses advances.

    Here's the bracket from espn: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncaa/bracket?id=4203475

    Default Congrat's to GU and best of luck

    I will be following GU and hoping they do well at Regionals. WSU hasn't made it since 1990 I believe. I was in my third year at WSU so that is a very long time ago!

    Congrat's and good luck against GSU.

    Just have to hope the bats stay hot and pitching stays tough. That's it.

    Their complaints about being sent to CS Fullerton pale beside Virginia's complaint. UVA wins one of the toughest baseball conferences, gets sent across the country (at least the weather will be nice) to play at Irvine, and then gets to watch SDSU's Stephen Strasburg serve 100 MPH cheese up close.

    Default Overlooked is an understatement.

    I hope the Georgia Southern team is as apathetic about facing the Zags as their fans seem to be. I like our chances.

    Coming from a Georgia Southern fan, I think that Fields will be very tough, but if Mederos pitches for us then he will probably hold the upper hand.

    I think that GSU takes it in a low-scoring pitchers dual with Mederos and the high-powered GSU offense coming out victorious in the end.

    Prediciton:
    GSU - 4
    Zags - 1

    Fullerton regional: Not an easy field to some

    The dark-horse contender: Gonzaga

    In a year when the West Coast Conference was expected to take a step forward, the league as a whole took a step back. Gonzaga, though, is an exception. The Bulldogs compiled good overall and conference records in the regular season. They also made easy work of Loyola Marymount in the WCC title series. The Bulldogs also could be a surprise waiting to happen in the Fullerton regional. Tyson Van Winkle, Drew Heid and Ryan Wiegand are hitting .361, .350 and .330, respectively. Mark Castellitto, meanwhile, has slugged eight homers and driven in 39 runs. Starting pitchers Matt Fields and Steven Ames spearhead the pitching staff and Cody Martin, who has a 3.31 ERA in 54 1/3 innings, is the reliever to watch. Gonzaga coach Mark Machtolf will have his team ready to play this weekend.
