After the hosts were announced, Baseball America is predicting the Houston Regional will be…

Texas Southern

My prediction, as well. About as favorable as we could ask for.

With all the stolen bids, A&M’s 2-8 finish may put them on the outside looking in.

Matched up with Lubbock. Tech’s tough, but I’d be OK with this.

D1 has the same prediction for our regional, but pairs us with North Carolina:


The following timeline will be used by the Houston Athletics Ticket Office on ticket sales:

Sunday, May 28 – Houston Baseball Season Ticket Holders, Coaches Committee/Dugout Club and Corbin J Robertson Donors will receive an e-mail with access to purchase Regional all-session tickets.

Monday, May 29 – All other Cougar Pride Donors will receive an e-mail at 5 p.m. with access to purchase Regional all-session tickets beginning at 8 a.m. on Tuesday

Tuesday, May 30 – Houston Baseball flex plan and mini plan purchasers will receive an e-mail at 5 p.m. with access to purchase Regional all-session tickets beginning at 8 a.m. on Wednesday

University of Houston student sale begins 9 a.m. All-session tickets for $25 and Single Game Tickets for $5 each. You must show your Cougar Card to purchase tickets at the student rate at the Houston Athletics Ticket Office at TDECU Stadium. Each student is limited to one ticket per Cougar Card.

Thursday, June 1 – All-session tickets, if still available, will go on sale to the general public at 8 a.m. at UHCougars.com/tickets. Single session passes, if still available, will be available online to the public at Noon at UHCougars.com/tickets.

Single-game tickets may not be an option if all-session tickets sell out.

While I like the regional flavor to the prediction of TSU, UT and Rice, I would not mind Rice being sent to Fort Worth or Lubbock. They went 18-4 or something like that to close the season out.

wow, UT to the west coast.

TSU and Rice to Baton Rouge

we get the hardest regional per ESPN with Baylor, A&M, and Iowa

What do you want to bet that UT said they didn’t want to come to Houston for fear of losing to us ?

Gonna be a great atmosphere.

I hope the atm destroys #RapeU in the first game.

Good regional. Not sure if it’s the toughest though.

Iowa won the B1G tourney…but, it’s the B1G tourney. They aren’t a great team and the Coogs should beat them.

Aggies we’re on the bubble and barely made it in this year. They beat everyone they were supposed to, but lost to good teams. They also lost 8 of their last 10.

Baylor has been good and they beat us 2 out of 3 at their place, although, that 1st game was a toss-up. Bears have gone through some down periods though as they lost 8 of 10 about mid season and have lost their last 4 games heading into the tourney.

Should be fun and if our kids play like they did last week, we should be happy come Monday. Plus, we didn’t get matched up with Oregon State’s region.

Per NCAA regional policy, Baylor, A&M and Iowa are guaranteed an allotment of 200 tickets for each game they play.

“The rest of the stadium needs to be sold out to Cougar fans,” Yurachek said. “We’re proud of what our team has accomplished. They’ve done their part, and now we need Cougar fans to step up.”

“It’s a good city, our guys seem pleased with that, and we know we’ll see some good teams,’’ Heller said. “At this time of year it doesn’t matter who we play. It’s just a matter of who’s playing well and who’s not. Three Texas teams and ourselves, there will be some good baseball played.’’

Classy; they got hosed
