Many in the media joined me in declaring the Fayetteville Regional pairings an egregious mistake by the NCAA Baseball Tournament selection committee.
We all figured a very good team would go home too early. Turns out, Nebraska, the Big Ten champion, nearly pulled the upset on the No. 1 overall seed Arkansas baseball team. The Huskers proved they deserved their own regional and could have been a legit College World Series contender.
The Cornhuskers dominated the Hogs in Game 2 to force a deciding game in the regional Monday night and quickly grabbed a 2-0 lead in that matchup.
