I think it was great that two bastions of academia squared off in the College World Series. Watching excellent baseball being played by amateurs has been very refreshing. Rice won the series tonight, but Stanford obviously played well just to get there. Congrats to Rice for winning their first NCAA Championship of any kind. Score one for the geeks.

Stanford has a great team almost every year, I think the Yankee's Mike Mussina played for Stanford as did many other Major leaguers.

I Don't give a hoot (sorry, I had to say it) about either team but it's refreshing to see a new team win a major NCAA Championship. I'd say that on average you can pick the same 10-15 powerhouse schools every year in football, BBall, and baseball and normally one would win it. I've never seen Rice in anything before.

This is Rice's first NCAA championship in anything. Well Done Rice!

I think Rice won a national championship in debating or something like that... Big grin
