Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Year of the Bulldogs?

Wednesday June 18, 2008

That’s the case so far in Omaha. #1 seed Miami and #2 seed North Carolina will have to work back through the loser’s brackets while the Georgia Bulldogs and Fresno State Bulldogs enjoy a 2-0 advantage in their respective groups.

Tuesday’s action in the College World Series had no impact on Georgia’s half of the bracket, but LSU continued this year’s theme of ninth-inning drama with a comeback win over Rice. Fresno then continued their improbable postseason run by handing UNC their first loss of the entire NCAA Tournament.

Things get going in Georgia’s bracket this evening as Miami and Stanford meet with elimination on the line. The winner gets another shot at Georgia on Friday afternoon. We know from experience that both Miami and Stanford are quality opponents, but I think most Georgia fans would rather face Stanford again rather than the #1 team and their offense. Whatever happens tonight, I hope it lasts about 23 innings with each team running out of pitchers.

While you’re waiting for Friday, head over to the Georgia Sports Blog for an interview with 1990 hero Mike Rebhan (part one | part two). I mentioned Rebhan the other day while looking back at Stanford’s role in Georgia’s 1990 national title, and pwd got some great insight out of the Cardinal conqueror.
