4Quarters NCAA Baseball Tournament Under the Radar Teams

Tomorrow as the month of June begins so does the NCAA Baseball Tournament and 4Quarters will have a complete predictions sure to go wrong tomorrow but today I want to give you the three and four seeds who could cause havoc.

Gainesville Regional – 3 seed the College Charleston, the CoC barely got in and I think could surprise

Charlottesville Regional – 4 seed Appalachian State , watch out Virginia the Mountaineers will be pesky

Columbia Regional – 3 seed Coastal Carolina, I’m calling this the group of hate with Coastal,  S. Carolina and Clemson but watch out for the Chanticleers

Eugene Regional – 3 seed Indiana State, Sycamores won the MVC regular season title and I think can compete out west

Houston Regional – 3 seed Sam Houston State, The Bobkats one of two Southland teams in the field cannot be overlooked, trust me

Waco Regional – 3 seed Texas-Arlington and 4 seed Oral Roberts, UTA surprised people winning the SLC conference tourney but I think they could have a say in a tough regional. First regional that I mention both the three and four could have a say in the regional but
Waco will be one of the tougher regionals

Los Angeles Regional – 3 seed New Mexico and 4 seed Creighton, Los Lobos can hit with anyone but will it happen outside of
Albuquerque? Creighton, yes I know I’m biased here but they have the pitching and defense to compete.

College Station Regional – 3 seed Mississippi, This is a team that I’m waiting to break through but as a three seed watch out!

Coral Gables Regional – 3 Missouri State, Yes another MVC team that I’m trying to bring awareness to before it’s too late for the higher seeds

Chapel Hills Regional – 3 St. John’s, The Red Storm are a team that I’m also waiting to make the Super Regional’s will this be it finally?

Tucson Regional – 3 Louisville and 4 Missouri, Cardinals I think are underseeded which is trouble for others this weekend in Arizona. Mizzou marched to the Big XII title last week so they enter on a roll

Stanford Regional – 4 Fresno State, Nothing will top the original version but can their be a Wonder Dog sequel?

Again more to come tomorrow with the full predictions but until then please follow me on twitter @MikeVmos
