College World Series--How It Works
Yesterday, the seeds and brackets were announced for the 2016 College World Series. We all know that the road to Omaha is long, but it’s also twisting with a hybrid of different tourney formats involved. So, NoDef is offering a quick primer as we prepare to watch five Louisiana teams compete for the big prize.
The competition begins with 64 D1 teams ranked and then split into 16 brackets for regionals. Within these groups, there are mini ranking (1-4) with the top team hosting the regional. LSU and ULL both hold said honor. In addition, the best eight squads are ranked as super seeds. These schools are distributed in such a way that they can not face one another in the first two rounds. It is important to note that the rankings set at the beginning tournament remain relevant all the way through Omaha.
The regionals will run from Friday, June 3, to Monday, June 6 (at the latest). This portion of the contest is double elimination which means that if one team loses twice, they are out of the tournament. The format of this section also means that some teams will be able to lock in victory early and garner an extra rest day.
The 16 winners of the regionals will advance to the next round, the super regionals. The super regionals are set up as straight best-of-three series. Te host team will be determined by the original rankings with the higher positioned team taking home field advantage. This means that if the super seeds advance they retain host privileges. (As far as Louisiana’s teams are concerned, LSU will is in line for a super regional, but the outlook for the other four teams is grim). Selection of the eight super regional hosts will be announced on Monday, June 6 at approximately 10p.m. (CST).
Eight teams will emerge from the super regionals and head to Omaha to play for all of the marbles. Based on the original rankings, the finalists are placed into two four-team groups. A new double elimination tourney is played in those groups. The group’s victors then face off in one final best of three series for the championship on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday evenings. The 70th Men’s College World Series begins play Saturday, June 18, at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska.
All of the games will be televised.
