Here are a few of my thoughts on this year’s picks.
Most people believe that Big 10 Champions and the winningest team in Div 1 Minnesota got a raw deal not getting ranked in the tourney.
The Southeastern Conference set an NCAA Tournament record as all 13 programs earned a spot in the 2017 NCAA Division I Softball Championship.
The Pac-12 conference will be sending eight teams to this year’s tournament.
The Cinderella team this year is NEC champions, Saint Francis (PA) (48-9). They have a rough regional though that starts against SEC South Carolina Gamecocks. If they could win that game next up would probably be #2 seed Arizona.
Some of my early predictions for Super Regionals are that it will be Florida vs. Minnesota, Texas A&M vs. Tennessee, UCLA vs. Ole Miss, LSU vs. Florida State, Oregon vs. Kentucky, Utah vs. Washington and Baylor vs. Arizona.
