The Gophers are Good at Baseball

Even though I don't follow the team very closely - ok, not at all - congratulations to the Gopher baseball team on making the NCAA tournament.

The gophers made it in as a three seed in a four-team regional (there are 64 teams invited total). If they manage to win the double elimination regional, they advance to a SuperRegional, and from there possibly to the College World Series.

The Gophers (40-16) will open play in San Diego against #2 seed Cal State-Fullerton (33-23). The other teams in the San Diego regional are #4 Seed Fresno State (36-27) and #1 seed (8 overall) and host San Diego (43-16).

And let me just say it's crap that the Gophers are the only non-western team in the regional, got screwed with their seeding, and I'm filing a protest over this whole anti-Minnesota conspiracy.
