Some news and notes heading into the super-regionals, which begin tomorrow. Eight series, each using a two-out-of-three format, will be played, with the eight winners advancing to the NCAA Women's College World Series. Television coverage of the "supers" will be as follows:
Michigan at Baylor will be on College Sports Television (CSTV), according to this schedule.
Four other series (Florida vs. Texas A&M; Hawaii vs. Tennessee; DePaul vs. Oklahoma; and Cal State Fullerton vs. Arizona) will be shown on the "ESPN Family of Networks" (ESPN and ESPN-U, in this instance). Broadcast times for these series can be found in this discussion thread from Ultimate College Softball (the sequence of messages contains updates as they were becoming available; the most informative message to look at is one by Matt Simon, with the timestamp "5/22/07 at 10:21 AM").
That leaves three series (Arizona State vs. LSU; Northwestern vs. South Carolina; and Washington vs. Alabama) that will not appear on conventional television, but should be capable of being followed either on internet video, audio, or gametrackers.
The Blog also wants to congratulate Oklahoma Coach Patty Gasso on achieving the 800th win of her coaching career, which occurred during regional play last weekend.
