We have reached the projecting-the-canceled-NCAA-baseball-tournament portion of the offseason. The field for the real thing would have been announced on Monday, so D1Baseball took a shot at what it would’ve looked like.
They have NC State as a regional host and the No. 12 overall seed and matched up with UGA’s regional for the super regional round. Michigan, Tennessee, and NC A&T round out the hypothetical Raleigh Regional, and that would have been fun—Michigan was the national runner up in 2019.
I feel like State was gonna get off the schneid and win its regional this season, mostly because the program finally had a bonafide ace for the first time since Carlos Rodon. Figures it takes a half decade to find another elite starter only to have the season end up canceled and the opportunity lost.
