    Purdue's current facility, Lambert Field, only seats about 1,000 people and I'm pretty sure it does not even have lights.....thus, they put in a bid to play at a minor league stadium (I believe) in Gary. Purdue is currently building a new stadium, but it will not be completed until this summer, I believe.

    Here is the current venue:

    Yeah, it's a pretty sad "venue", indeed. Most of the Big Ten Baseball facilities are smaller than a lot of High School fields here in the Omaha area. Almost unbelievable.

    Both MSU and Purdue could win their regionals. Creighton got a tough draw in having to go to UCLA, and a pretty good Dallas Baptist has to play in the Baylor regional.

    Agree, that both could win their respective regionals. Stanford was pretty up and down the second half of the season and Pepperdine is definitely not one of the stronger 2 seeds IMHO. I think Stanford wins that regional, but I think that the Palo Alto regonal is one of the more wide open regionals.

    Purdue definitely got a tough draw with Kentucky being the 2 seed. Most people thought that Kentucky was a lock to host a regional and just a few weeks ago, they were in the discussion for a national seed. I am really interested to see how that regional turns out.

    Mark my word, Michigan has no shot. None. Nada. I'm very surprised they even made it.

    Purdue has a decent chance, but I'll pick Kentucky to win that regional -- Kentucky will be so much better prepared, having played an SEC schedule.

    True. Michigan has no shot. MSU, however, has a chance. I'm not saying they will be favored, but both Purdue and MSU got breaks by not having to play any of the national seeds in their regionals. Kentucky should win, given that Purdue is playing 90 miles from home in the regional they are hosting.

    Purdue's chances are probably much better than Michigan State's. I don't see them beating Stanford in Palo Alto.
    I really hate Penn State! (And I'm not that wild about Iowa either.)

    Purdue couldn't have a national seed in their regional, as they are host. So they either were going to be a national seed, or play one in the supers.

    My thoughts on regionals:

    -- Michigan State got a gift by being included. I think the NCAA wanted to include another Northern team, and it was Sparty. Two other teams left out had just as strong resumes (Texas and Wichita State), but both of those went 0-2 in their conference tourneys.

    -- I thought Creighton got one of the better matchups of the Top 8 seeds. The Jays were destined to face one of the Top 8 as they had a losing record, and I think UCLA is one of the beatable ones. They could've been sent to Gainsville, Tallahasee, Baton Rouge, or Columbia.

    -- I see Clemson is in South Carolinas regional. No love lost there, thats for sure.

    -- Did anyone else pick up the irony of having Cal State Fullerton sent up to Oregon? Oregons coach, George Horton, is the former Fullerton coach.
    "They're not in my head" -- Tim Miles trying to explain how a team with lessor talent, experience, resources, and conference affliation has won 13 of 16 games against Nebraska.

    haha.. caught me! well, neither Michigan nor MSU has a chance. Well, technically every team in the tournament has a chance. But, I'll say "no way" to the Spartans.
