1 day ago UNC Baseball: Bracketology Update — Chapel Hill will host a regional
Photo by Eakin Howard/Getty Images The NCAA announced the 16 regional hosts last night, and to nobody’s surprise, one will be in Chapel Hill Despite failing to advance from pool play in the ACC Baseball Championship, UNC was pretty much assured to be hosting a regional, and almost guaranteed a spot among the Top 8 National Seeds, in the NCAA Baseball Championship. The first part of that was confirmed Sunday night, when the 16 regional hosts were announced. There were some surprises (ECU and Arizona over Duke and Indiana State, anybody?), but Chapel Hill as a regional host wasn’t one of them. Some of the earlier projections we looked at assumed UNC, as the #1 seed in the ACCBC, to be the conference’s auto-bid by way of winning the championship, so they might have been getting over-seeded by a line or two based on the expectation of the high-profile wins that would have taken. Now that such an assumption is no longer baked into the projections, we might get a more accurate picture from the projectors, who have been putting out daily updates to their bracketology during conference tournament season. The two best sources for NCAA Baseball news and analysis, D1Baseball and Baseball America, both put out projections on Sunday Morning. Baseball America’s has UNC as the #2 overall seed, hosting a regional with Texas, VCU, and UPenn. Across from them would be a Corvallis Regional featuring #15 Oregon State, with Duke, Alabama, and Grand Canyon rounding out the Beavers’ potential spoilers. Such a high seed even after the ACCBC ended indicates that, like Matt said in the last Bracketology update, that losing to Wake Forest wasn’t going to be a big deal resume-wise. I’m surprised BA has UNC ahead of Kentucky, who has probably the superior resume but might be the victim of recency bias after their subpar performance in their own conference tournament. D1 does have UNC and Kentucky switched, giving the #3 Heels a regional with South Carolina, UNCW, and Sacred Heart. Coincidentally, they’d still be across from a Corvallis Regional at #14, which would also have Duke as the #2 seed along with UConn and Evansville. Clearly, both websites are expecting the committee to prioritize the narrative excitement that UNC matchups with either Duke or Oregon State would bring, between the Tobacco Road rivalry and Oregon State having eliminated really good Tar Heel teams from Omaha or near-Omaha several times in recent memory. It seems like UNC’s pretty safely going to be a national seed, meaning they would not have to leave Chapel Hill until and unless they punched a ticket to Omaha. Given UNC’s 32-2 record at Boshamer Stadium, the Heels have got to like that situation — and they’ve totally earned it with an excellent season so far. We’ll see what the committee decides at noon today, and we’ll be back after that with a quick analysis of where UNC ended up being placed, who they’ll be facing, and what the road to Omaha might look like, followed by more detailed looks at all of that and more over the course of the week before Regionals start on Friday, May 31st.
