All I’m saying is I don’t think there is anyone that wants to see Auburn come to their regional. Bracket buster all day

Michigan has NO shot to host if Minnesota didn't host last year

Agree, I took them off my bubble team list this week.

Nothing.  They are playing their worst at the worst possible time.

You just never know what the committee is going to do.


I think it will take a run to the title game.  If the bracket gods somehow lets us beat the teams closest to us in the RPI and/or upset UF, then 3 wins would get us hosting.

And the bracket today would facilitate that.  We'd open with bama, play UF in the next round...followed by most likely a winner of A&M/UT.

I'm a Bama fan, but I agree with you. I think Auburn is in good shape to host. I think Arkansas may have a better resume, but AU would be ahead of Alabama, Kentucky, and Baylor at this point. Bama could pass them with a series win over A&M and opening SECT win over AU, but AU would still be 16.  Kentucky and Baylor resumes don't measure up imo.

Why would you think AU needs a run to the title game? Who are the teams that you would assess are ahead of AU in the pecking order?  

Arkansas?
Alabama?
Kentucky?
Baylor?
Long Beach St?

3 of those would have to host for AU to be left out of hosting. Which 3 do you think would be ahead of Auburn?

I just think the road record is going to push us back further.  Arkansas is ahead of us in that regard.  bama has the BYU win in Seattle, wins at KY (2), home wins vs. FSU and UF, @Arkansas and @ UGA.  I realize that's only 2.  Maybe we get the last spot, but at some point a committee will look at that road record and say somebody else deserves it....or there's just too many SEC teams hosting.  If we beat bama, yes, maybe we're back in it, but I think we need 2...and that 2nd one would be a biggie...to offset the 2 loss sweep @ Mizzou.

Apparently, the NCAA committee is trying to save money rather than balance out the 1/2 seeds in the regional.  Maybe they will make JSU, KSU and Auburn share a MegaBus and a Super 8 motel for the regional as well.   Here's hoping for a big upset and a Super Regional somewhere else...not banking on it though.

We did this to ourselves with the way we finished the season.

I agree, but I am pissed that they chose UK. We swept them and they won 1/3 of their SEC games. I get they had a tough schedule, but they need to use common sense.

I guess giving UK the host was a nod to the SEC overall.  We didn't deserve to host for sure with our road record in conference play.  But UK won 2/3 vs. USC last weekend and 2-2 vs. LSU and otherwise was 4-14 in SEC play outside of those two series.   They were outscored 109-68 in SEC play, so maybe LBSU or someone else deserved that last regional.  I just know that we weren't bad enough to have to play a national #6 seed.   I would have rather travelled to AZ for games against either of those two teams.  For now, let's beat Kennesaw St. again, and then I'll gripe about the next game.
