I guess the NCAA doesn't care what Greg McGarity thinks about traveling west. The Diamond Dawgs are the 3 seed in Corvallis, with host Oregon State the 1 seed. Two seed and MVC champ Creighton and UALR round out the group.
Oregon State staggered to the end, losing their last five games, and got swept by Oregon to end their season. Creighton won the MVC championship and plays some of their home games at TD Ameritrade Stadium, the new home of the College World Series. UALR finished 24-32, but won the Sun Belt Conference tournament to get in.
Overall, it looks like a decent draw for the Dawgs, putting aside the travel issues.
