I Don't Think You Realize What Just Happened

Fresno State just upset Georgia to win the College World Series.

64 teams play for the college baseball championship; they are divided into sixteen 4-team regions, in which the teams are seeded 1 through 4. Fresno State was a 4 seed. Had this been basketball (where teams are divided into four 16-team regions), the Bulldogs would have been no better than a 13 seed. Going into the postseason, Fresno State was #89 in the RPI rankings; going into tonight's game, they were still only ranked #52.

In short, this year's Fresno State team may be the most unlikely national champion in major college sports history.
