Chasing Omaha Regional Projections – 5/9/2013

CWS Plate

Every Thursday, our co-founder and publisher, Craig Amick, will release his regional projections. These projections are a snap-shot of what the bracket might look like if it were released today based on the criteria that the NCAA Tournament Committee uses to build the field of 64 in June. These projections are not a prediction of what the bracket will look like in June, so every week we will get closer and closer to the final picture.

The national seeds have a number next to them in parenthesis and the projected super regional match-ups are side-by-side. Projected conference champions are in italics.

Please post any questions or comments below or send a tweet to Craig at @craigamick_co.

    I think your projections are more spot on than others and I am not just saying that because you have Clemson hosting a regional but because up and down the line you have more teams that are in the top twenty five and also teams that have good quality wins

  2. Jackson Banks

    Last week Auburn was in the last 4 out. They took 2 of 3 from Ole Miss and won both mid week games and now have dropped out of the last 4 out. What made them fall out of the first 4 out?

    • At this point, I look more at conference record, as that will be a deciding factor. We have enough games played to do that now. That’s what has Auburn off my radar.

  3. Purple

    Can you explain Arkansas not hosting? They’re looking to be a lock to finish third in the SEC, a conference you have hosting four regionals, but not Arkansas? Is it RPI? Also, to what extent would their facilities play a role in the decision to host. They have proven the ability to pack 10k+ into their stadium for tournament games, which isn’t something very many places around the country can say.

    • It’s all about the RPI for Arkansas. No quality wins outside of conference doesn’t help. I think there’s a chance they host out of geographic necessity (or perceived necessity) but the lack of west coast teams is making that less likely this season. I could be wrong on this (ala UCLA 2011), but at this point, I don’t see Arkansas hosting.
