This is great news! As the #15 seed I didn't expect to host in the round of 16.

Could someone explain why a lower seed would host a higher seed? Thanks!

Not certain but I've been told that Cal didn't make a bid.

Their softball stadium only seats 500 while ours has 2 1/2 times the capacity at 1,230. The NCAA probably sees it from a money perspective.

Looks like a pretty nice rec field. It's really pretty embarassing that a state school with a great winning tradition (something like 6 straight WCWS trips, and a national championship a couple of years back) can't give it's program better facilities than this. But oh well, their loss, our gain. Go BU!!

Was Call the #1 seed in their regional? If they are ranked second nationally, I can only presume so.

Wonder how the CaliBears will do in the heat?

Let's just hope they don't throw a halfback pass on their first play from scrimmage.

Oops, wrong sport.

Cal has really never had great facilities for any of there sports. In football, Tedford is holding their feet to the fire, but the old guard there definitely puts academics ahead of athletics. I was there when they kicked the crap out of us a few years ago, and went to their track-- POS at the time.

However, the Cal Bears are dang good at softball, and they don't care about the heat. They play in Arizona (Ariz and ASU) all of the time. Temps will be in high 80's and low 90's by the weekend.

Good luck Bears (our Bears!!)

Great news for the Lady Bears! Take out Cal and join the other Big 12 teams in Oklahoma.

Did anyone see that Texas gets to play BETHUNE-COOKMAN in the Super Regional? Can it get any easier? They don't even need Cat to win this one.

Most softball programs rarely require more.

I flipped to ESPN2 right as UT scored the winning run. My Dad said UT got lucky on a controversial call at 3rd base.

Yep, I read it. She is from Carrollton R.L. Turner HS. A white lady at a historically black college.
