The field for the championship series of the 2008 College World Series is set. Georgia earned a spot Saturday and tonight Fresno State upset North Carolina to set up an all-Bulldog series that begins Monday.
After Rice lost Tuesday, I was pulling for the Tar Heels though as the week went along it was hard not to pull for Fresno State. They remind me of the Southwest Missouri State team that ended Ohio State's season in 2003 at the Columbus Super Regional. They are scrappy and play with a lot of heart. Of course, this team is playing for a national championship. SMS did not.
They now have a tough task of taking on Georgia, which won the other bracket. Fresno State, though a No. 4 regional seed, seems up to that task, and I, for one, will be pulling for them.
