We matchup really well with LSU. They sent us and McNeese off, we both beat them lol
I believe LSU is probably the most vulnerable team hosting a regional. My guess is Southern U. and McNeese in that regional was too much pressure on them and had the potential for a major embarrassment. To me, that looks like the voters protecting one of the big boys....

Our coach did ask to travel, for the experience for the players, but this one time I wish they would have left us in BR. They only send us somewhere else when they know we can beat them. Same as in 03. LSU used a weekend starter and all their top relievers when they played us and we still spanked that azz.

I am glad the team got their preference. However, anyone that don't believe there are politics involved in those selections are naive.

Some folks sound delusional to think the NCAA moved southern because they were protecting LSU.
Heck, USM and Arizona State are in the Baton Rouge regionals, which are probably tougher teams than both McNeese and southern.

2003 Skip Bertman went on record and said he called every committee member and lobbied to have SU play in another regional besides LSU. This season, Our coach , who is well respected in the baseball community, lobbied to get out of BR for the experience. I knew they wouldn’t send us to BR after what he said lol.

Not saying LSU is afraid of anyone, but it seems be a constant irony how in-state teams that have defeated LSU during the season are placed in different regional sites. I agree with coach and am glad SU gets to travel and see something different than Alex Box. But, there is irony there. Not just SU, but mcneese, tulane, etc..

Excellent interview. Some of those reporters were shock when Kerrick mentioned Omaha lmao.
Incredibly difficult to get to Omaha going through Starkville, but it would be great to see it happen.

Would be a college baseball story for the ages.

With that said, going to Omaha and winning a national championship should be every college baseball team’s goal.

It’s more shocking to me that these reporters don’t know every team in the tourney wants to win. Says a lot about their mentalities.

You better Believe that LSU did not want SU or McNeese in that region. 1st its basically a home tournament for SU and McNeese in BR. Fans can Travel well and give pure energy to there teams. LSU doesn't have the pitching this year to just blow you out.

And their catcher isn’t good. We would have been able to run at Will.
