An update to a story from Tuesday’s blog. The 2014 CWS team pulled off a dramatic upset and moves on to the second round of @NCAABaseball’s top College World Series teams bracket. The Hoos ousted 2002 NCAA Champion Texas. to move onto the second round. Voting is open through this morning for our 2015 NCAA Champion squad and a very tough battle against the No. 2 team in the bracket, the 1999 Miami Hurricanes. Click on the tweet below to vote.
Miami has the star power advantage here by a significant margin, but the element of surprise is in.
