5/20 Baseball Bracketology Breakdown

Last Eight In: Arizona, Auburn, San Diego, Ohio State, Miami (FL), William & Mary, Coastal Carolina, Illinois

First Eight Out: Houston, West Virginia, Kansas, Maryland, Charleston, Kentucky, Notre Dame, San Francisco

We may be less than a week before the brackets are revealed for the 2013 NCAA Tournament, but there is still plenty of baseball to play. Most conferences begin their tournaments this week and there will be major movement around the bubble. Upsets are going to happen and the bubble is going to shrink more and more. This season there could very easily be multiple teams representing the Atlantic Sun, Mountain West, Ohio Valley, Southern and Southland conferences. Teams like Mercer or Austin Peay are going to the NCAA Tournament no matter what happens this week and that opens the door for many potential upsets and a bubble that will very likely shrink dramatically as this week unfolds. That is bad news for Arizona, Auburn, Ohio State and Miami who will be the first to move from the last eight in to the first eight out.
