The term gain yesterday in Hoover Alabama which is you know right -- -- a burning. Now their war. For -- and change yesterday. And so the bottom eight teams plea and it would going elimination in the report teams who lost guests -- -- out of the tour so. That's what took place yesterday. Ortiz were eliminated that now we're down to EP so the cop or in the regular season. Wonderful we'll tell you. Yet city and those sport teams are matched up. We -- before. Teens who won yesterday.

And in the championship game on Sunday. The winner of the tourniquet automatic bid to the NCAA tournament just like bat well. Really all the scene eight in their -- and it -- that -- probably aren't guaranteed a spot will will get beat Ian CHR. And just be clear when you say NCAA tournament you come to college worlds here. Well leading. Out well that would super regional and regionals and those things. Correct he got a. Regional first and end and then you at the super region the -- leading up to the Al closer. Are we come back we'll talk about the chances of -- issue hosting one of those who went on about. Bowl games football and they certainly talk about that and also run down the only issue staff fours if you will because again is that time a year where buddy gets a lot of interest. And -- will know who we're talking about what becomes of pitching hitting -- -- relievers to eight when he too. Time look at traffic north -- -- from tiger -- -- com about LHU baseball right now though. Time for a traffic -- that we go to Robbie Robinson. Tommy Tucker that WL luck come to be honest don't know a lot of baseball man and I try to follow -- -- baseball as much as I can. And this time a year and and no disrespect -- but it's kind of like and I just think in terms of the public at this time a year but he gets an a horse race. And I know anything about it but because the Triple Crown and especially now we can have a Triple Crown winner. Everybody gets excited about a horse racing and I think they are the diehard LSU baseball fans a considerable number of them but then. Once we get -- Southeastern Conference tournament once we get the regional super regional and college World Series that's on their body really. Jumps on board so let's talk about. Two early talk about regional super regional is that pretty likely to happen for only issue. Well Alex keep happening again. It's a -- and it will be an reach. Which begin next week in which begins a week from Friday. -- what is in the years whether LA if you will -- the regional in that room. And that the importance of the term it is we currently. In Allah. There are sixteen schools that host. Regional. Hand right now you know the guys he'd make that prediction on that issue and regional arm and hand them right. On the ball out regional votes. So what. Did they when he SEC if they when he SEC and they do groceries correct. Well. -- -- -- But. What you wind the heat charter. 08. And -- -- Brian in terms of getting in to. The tournament even if they don't win there already and if they don't win the. And yet -- There resonated is that there depth in the in the eight car so the only question is is there resonate strongly enough. That the selection committee considers them to be one of the sixteen that keen. And you know the sixteen that he'd get a -- regional elects. That's what Alex you're playing well war it's weakened real competition with which other team yet the state. That there are I've seen without these copper that that really -- a good do you work to be posting normally. The SEC never get more than 40. So that means there's going to be one -- out. And that's what -- she's competing. For right now they're competing with probably South Carolina and Vanderbilt and they played today and Ole -- And those fourteen -- portable with all out there -- people want that they won the regular season championship. So. Don't or aren't really competing for three regional spot. -- -- -- -- The same bracket with Vanderbilt Ole miss.
