The Southeastern Conference started the NCAA Baseball Tournament with a record 10 teams, but after its opening weekend is down to only two.
The Vanderbilt Commodores and Ole Miss Rebels were the only two teams to advance to the tourneys final 16.
The Commodores were the only SEC team not to lose a game in regional play.
Florida, LSU and South Carolina were all host schools that went down on their home fields.
Vanderbilt Coach Tim Corbin was not shocked by the beat down the league took, “I think the parity is such where any team can get whacked at any time. If you’re not playing your best you’re going to get put down and I just think there are too many good players now and they’re too spread out.”
Vanderbilt pitcher Tyler Beede was more than a little surprised, he said, ”I’ve just never seen so many one seeds go down like that. I think this is one of the first years in a while that there have been so many one seeds get out.”
The Commodores meet Stanford in Super Regional play starting Friday at Noon at Hawkins Field.
The winner of the best of three series advances to Omaha, Nebraska and the College World Series.
