One of the most exciting times in collegiate sports came to an end last week with the Kentucky Wildcats clinching their eighth basketball title over the Kansas Jayhawks. Sadly, March Madness has come to a close, however, the proverbial lane is now open for college baseball to take control.
With the regular season at the halfway mark, the road to Omaha is taking somewhat of a shape, but there is still more games and conference tournaments to be played. Because of that, the chances that all of the 64 teams you see below make the tournament in June are slim and none. But that doesn't stop us at The College Baseball Blog from putting out our first batch of regional projections to effectively launch the site.
