This year shapes up to be the year of the upset in the 2012 NCAA Softball Tourney.
The biggest surprise came from the Gainesville Regional where Top Seed and #5 ranked Florida lost to Florida Gulf Coast 2-1. Fla GC is a school of only 12,000 located Near Naples Fla and was established in 1991. Florida has been ranked in the top 5 most of the year. Maybe a little too much looking ahead?
In the Austin Regional, Top Seed and #6 ranked Texas lost to the only other Big Ten invitee, Northwestern 2-0. Congrats Wildcats. NWU can surprise a lot of people.
In the Knoxville Regional, top seeded and #7 ranked Tennessee was beaten by Miami (NTM) 1-0. MAC Champions are sure to keep up the pressure. They are a good team.
In the Los Angles Regional top seed and #11 ranked UCLA was given a beat-down by my upset special Hofstra 7-2. This regional is going to be very interesting. Hofstra gave us a run for the money on 25FEB. We were lucky to scrape out a 3-2 victory.
My other upset special La- Lafayette top seeded and ranked #14 beat Mississippi Valley 8-0 in a mercy-rule win. The Cajuns are expected to win their regional but I predict them to make a run in the W.S.
