Great to see Missouri State advance with a definite chance to make the CWS. Congrats guys.

VCU leads DBU 2-1 and threatening to score more in the 6th, need a DBU rally or they're done.

VCU wins 3-1, so DBU's great season comes to a premature end.

MO State gets hosed twice.

First, forced to the road due to a stupid NCAA rule for hosting sites. And now, only given the minimum in tickets for the Super Regional by the NCAA and Arkansas

Wait, how exactly is MSU getting hosed? The super regional host thing is of their own doing. And secondly, how is Arkansas hosing MSU? They're doing what is required of them in the circumstances. Do you think MSU or anybody would give away a couple thousand tickets to the opposing fanbase if the roles were reversed?

I guess both of these "hosings" would be a non-issue if MSU didn't play the role of the rented mule.

Classy post. I'll take playing in a fantastic ballpark, having an excellent team, and knowing that our student athletes pay full price for their Under Armour gear over the alternative anyday.

I have no ill will at WSU's program, but a lot of the fans that you have to deal with really cheapen the experience and cause many of us to not really want to post much on this forum.

But, he was just responding to a MSU fan making up a bunch of crap about how MSU is getting screwed by the NCAA and Arkansas...all of which is untrue...his statement in response to that about MSU being a rented mule is fairly accurate. If I were a MSU fan in this situation, I'd be bitter at my university for letting this happen. It's the price you pay for not owning your own 1st class facilities and instead renting them from someone else.

WSU has hosted a lot of regionals over the years and I've been to a lot of them, but nothing really tops hosting a super regional. Win or lose the atmosphere is insane on college baseball standards. Hopefully you get the opportunity to experience it someday. Thankfully we have a Final Four and Sweet 16's to tide us over while the baseball program rebuilds...hopefully you get to experience one of those someday as well.

I don't think MSU got hosed by the Hogs at all. I tried to get tickets and couldn't. Disappointing but I don't blame Arkansas.

But the ncaa is another matter. The Springfield cardinals were willing to work around the super regionals. It would have worked fine. Kind of stupid IMO that the ncaa insists on their game being the only ones played in said facility.

Call it a rented facility if you want but no team in the Valley gets to play in a finer facility than Hammons field.

This is exactly how I feel. The Razorbacks are doing what any hosting team would do: Give their fans the first chance to get tickets. It just happens that they had over 10,000 ticket orders in the first couple of hours from just donors and season ticket holders. Even the regular Razorbacks fan never had a chance to get tickets.

What I dislike (and, perhaps, would use the word "hosed" for) is that the Springfield Cardinals were willing to work out a schedule and the NCAA said no. Sure, I get that they have policies, but it's a policy that seems overbearing.

Now, I also understand why the policy exists. There was a time when the NCAA allowed a different college to host a super regional when another team was also slated to play at the stadium, and one of the games went into extra innings and they conflicted. I understand that this is a possibility and something the NCAA wants to avoid.

Now, about the "rented mule" comment. When Hammons built the stadium, while the Springfield Cardinals are certainly the primary tenant and the Bears have to pay rent, that was part of the agreement that Hammons struck. He made it very clear from the very beginning that this facility was intended to serve as a facility for Missouri State as well.

Additionally, I quite frankly don't want Missouri State to build its own baseball stadium. Hammons Field is an excellent ballpark and the indoor facilities are just as crucial to the team as playing on a high quality field. When recruits tour campus and Hammons, to them it's not some degrading status of sharing a ballpark also used by a minor league team. For them, it's a perk to play on an AA quality field with indoor workout facilities. A significant reason why the Bears have attracted the kind of talent necessary to be the #8 national seed is because of Hammons Field. I'll take being a "rented mule" who gets to Super Regionals over being a property owner who goes 0-2 in the MVC Baseball Tournament.

Practice what you preach and stay off other opposing teams' message boards acting like a tool. You'll get finished off with all of the crap YOU start.
