MISSING SOME TRADITIONAL TEAMS: In Omaha, Tom Shatel writes it was "great to see Ole Miss back" in the CWS for the first time since '72, as well as Cal-Irvine making its second-ever appearance at the event. The "newbies and little guys really add something to the stew." However, it is "amazing" how some traditionally strong teams like Miami, Florida State and USC have fallen. South Carolina "didn’t get out of its regional," nor did LSU. Defending champ UCLA "didn’t make the tourney." Shatel: "So much balance. Is that good for the CWS? Yes and no. Glad to see the fresh faces, sure. But it’s good to have star power, too" (OMAHA WORLD-HERALD, 6/26).
