2-11-14: LSU, Boise State, Nebraska (at Omaha)
3-10-15: Utah, Georgia, Missouri (shades of 2010 again?) – @ Illinois possibly...
4-9-16: Florida, Denver, California (at Gainsville)
5-8-17: UCLA, Oregon State, Iowa (most likely at Arkansas)
6-7-18: Alabama, Michigan, Southern Utah (likely at West Virginia)
Auburn is likely headed to either Gainsville or Arkansas to muddy those waters a bit.
Southern Utah is good and has had a great season, but if I'm Alabama and Michigan I'm smiling right now knowing just an average meet from both of them gets them to Nationals.
Sad that the Seattle regional is going to be a battle for two teams that deserve to be at Nationals after breakthrough season but one of them will be on the outside looking in... :( Plus, they have Stanford to contend with... will it be the 2017 regular season Cards or the Pac 12 Cards? I don't think Stanford can beat either UW or Kentucky when all hit to the best of their abilities, but both the Dogs and Cats have the tendancy to fall back into old habits and that won't do with a normal post-season Stanford.
The Arkansas regional could be interesting if UCLA has another outing like at Pac 12s and Arkansas uses home floor to its greatest advantage with OSU and Iowa both also having a good chance to move on. I really hope they throw Auburn into this one as well to make it even more juicy...
Florida looks like an easy winner, but the battle between Denver and Cal should be good – assume North Carolina and George Washington will be thrown in here as well.
Minnesota will probably go to Nebraska though I don't expect them to be a factor. LSU should win this easy. I think Boise State should also come out of it, but Nebraska being at home is the main factor that will make this interesting...
Finally, I wonder how many times in the next two weeks Mizzou will rewatch the 2010 regional with a determiniation for history to repeat itself? Though if they are at Illinois I wouldn't count them out from pulling off the upset and joining Utah in St. Louis... though the location of Nationals makes the idea of Missouri earning the second seed all the more fun.
