Forecasting the 2007 College World Series

Although the roar of the faithful Beaver fans of Oregon State University is far from silent, (though I could very easily be confusing Beaver fans with the shrieks of horror over yet another incarnation of the University of Oregon Fear the Duck football uniform theme), college baseball analysts are already offering their early predictions for the 2007 campaign.

Will Kimmey of Baseball America probably offered his prediction before the Beavers had even reached the team bus, but if he is accurate (and he admittedly only named four of the eight 2006 College World Series participants), local college baseball fans will again have reason to watch for the talent-rich University of Texas Longhorns and Rice University Owls squads.

We will have to wait and see how the offseason shapes up as the draftees continue to weigh their options, but I don't see why the Longhorns and Owls will not renew their CWS rivalry dividing Houston fans once more. Until then, we at least have our faithful EA Sports substitute.
