I watched an obscene amount of college baseball between last Friday and late Monday night when Irvine knocked off Oregon State. Seemingly every year (and especially since the field expanded to 64 about 15 years ago) I get hooked on the regionals and the action of all the schools playing at the same time. If you didn't see it live, you owe it to yourself to watch this highlight from the second Louisville/Kentucky game.
Syracuse hasn't been to Omaha since 1961 (lack of a program has likely helped extend the dry spell). If there's a silver lining to be found with the move to the ACC, hopefully it'll be the return of a baseball team. Northeastern teams have faired very well the last few years, with SUNY Stony Brook making it all the way to Omaha in 2012. This year Siena and SUNY Binghamton both played very well in their respective regions, and Columbia had a great season despite a disappointing showing in the NCAA Tournament. If SU could consolidate some of the northeast talent (I know, scouts told Mike Trout there is no northeast talent), I see no reason why we couldn't usurp Maine as the preeminent northeastern baseball school and compete in the ACC. (I doubt any Seton Hall fans are going to read this and get upset at that assertion, but it's Maine, not them)
Some Random Numbers for amusement
Boston College: 4
Florida State: 21 (and no Nat'l Titles, I don't know if that's impressive or pathetic)
Georgia Tech: 3
*Maryland: 0 (but set to play UVA in a Super Regional on Friday)
Miami: 23 and 4 Nat'l Titles (23 trips is 2nd all-time, just ahead of AZ State's 22, and a ways behind Texas' 34)
North Carolina: 10
N.C. State: 2
Notre Dame: 2
Virginia: 2 (and still active this year)
Virginia Tech: none
Wake Forest: 2 (1 Nat'l Title)
If your wondering, Syracuse went 2-2 in their lone trip to Omaha, beating Colorado State and Western Michigan and losing twice to Oklahoma State.
