•    Oklahoma's Bob Stoops was seen wandering through the press box. South Carolina counters with Darrin Horn, who was making his first trip to the College World Series. Coach Horn indicated they will be back on the road recruiting in early July.

•    Kansas State head basketball coach Frank Martin and former Xavier and Virginia head coach Pete Gillen were also spotted at Rosenblatt Stadium today.

•    Ray Tanner, Mark Calvi and Chad Holbrook spent an hour this morning visiting with the ESPN talent calling today's game, including Karl Ravech, Nomar Garciaparra, and Kyle Peterson. No sign of Erin Andrews, who will be doing the sidelines for tonight's Clemson-Arizona State game.

•    TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle was named the National Coach of the Year by the National College Baseball Writers Association. He joins Gary Patterson as Horned Frog coaches to capture National Coach of the Year honors this year. Incidentally, both were hired at TCU by Eric Hyman.

•    Finalists were named for several other postseason honors in baseball. Christian Colon of Cal State Fullerton, Jedd Gyorko of West Virginia and Ryan Soares of George Mason are the finalists for the Brooks Wallace Shortstop of the Year Award. 2010 Pitcher of the Year Award finalists are Drew Pomeranz of Ole Miss, Chris Sale of Florida Gulf Coast and Alex Wimmers of Ohio State. Pomerenz, Miami's Yasmani Grandal and Anthony Rendon of Rice are the finalists for the 2010 Dick Howser Trophy. Interesting that despite their individual accomplishments, none of the national award finalists are playing here in Omaha this week.

•    In a football note, each SEC school will take three student-athletes to SEC Media Days next month in Birmingham, one more than what has been done in the past. The Gamecocks will be represented by Patrick DiMarco, Cliff Matthews and Shaq Wilson.
