I really don't care about any Big 12 teams but after living in Texas for most of the 80's I really don't like UT fans at all.

I do follow the Fighting Texas Aggies from A&M and hope they do well, my close friend Ricky Del Rio graduated from there in 58".

Good story on how ESPN and the CWS have grown to a premier event.

Aggies and Longhorns are both eliminated. Both of them are Big 12 schools also.

I was a little disappointed in the CWS. It was my first time out there, and I just expected it to be a better atmosphere and a little more fun. The weather sure didn't help, but it did give me a chance to see the Qwest Center. It's pretty cavernous, but all in all, a very nice facility. *Side note* all of Creighton's facilities are very nice (if you count Qwest and the new stadium as Creighton's since they play very few games in the new stadium and Qwest is a multi-even fcility). The soccer stadium is great.

I learned a lot about Omaha. It's bigger than I expected. Of course the zoo is nice, and there are several corporate headquarters there. Zesto's makes an awesome shake, food is mediocre though.

I imagine the atmosphere was better in Rosenblatt. More a "college" feel rather than the commercialized event it was this year.

Everyone loves "their" city, the city of Omaha is very spread out, and has some real bad areas. Out West was the part that was nice.

As for the CWS itself, Florida is going to win it. They were really by far the most talented team there. What's worse is they could be even better next year.
