Baton Rouge Super Regional Prediction

Just about everyone is rooting for FSU and their long time head coach Mike Martin who is in his final, 40th season with the Seminoles. Martin has taken FSU to well over a dozen College Baseball World Series but never won a CWS championship. This will be his last shot. In LSU the Seminoles get a vulnerable team. Although the Tigers seem to be getting better at the end of the season, they struggled much of the season and lost numerous non-conference games. FSU and LSU are very similar statistically. This series should go for 3 games. LSU gets the edge playing at home but you never know, ole Martin might get a final crack at the CWS. LSU 2 wins, FSU 1 win.
