MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) The state of South Carolina has some fantastic college baseball teams. Unfortunately, the majority of that talent is jammed into one stadium this weekend.
Consider This: It's disappointing that the NCAA put Coastal, South Carolina and Clemson in the same regional. It makes for a good storyline – and good TV – but it would have been better if each school was in a separate bracket and that storyline played out in Omaha instead.
I'm not an alumnus of any of the schools but I'm pulling for the Chants because Coastal Carolina is an economic engine for this region. Most of us may not always think about CCU in that way, but we should. When the school excels in athletics and academics it means more recognition, which means more students, which means more jobs and more money for our area.
Clemson and South Carolina have great baseball teams, but so does Coastal Carolina and this weekend I'll bleed teal, "Go Chants!"
