And I'm absolutely aware of why I enjoyed watching the semi finals and finals so much: it was baseball the way I always liked it.
I haven't seen games like those in a long time, at any level. Had these been the 17-14 games college baseball can produce, I can't imagine I'd have been nearly as engaged as I ended up.
But the pitching -- from not just Ole Miss but from Arkansas and Oklahoma today -- THAT'S the game I used to love
