Tennessee vs Georgia Softball Super Regional Weekend Open Thread

This is an argument for another day, but since Candace Parker's graduation (and with a hat tip of respect to the 2010 men's basketball team), the best program in Knoxville and the one most likely to win a championship on our campus has become Lady Vol Softball. Tennessee didn't even have a team until 1996, but has now been to the Women's College World Series four times since 2005, finishing no worse than fourth in Oklahoma City.

Today and tomorrow they'll have a chance to get back there, playing a best-of-three series against the team we always seem to run into deep in these non-revenue sport tournaments: the 10 seed Georgia Bulldogs come to Knoxville to face the 7 seed Lady Vols and a sold out crowd. The Vols and Dawgs split the regular season series in Knoxville back in April.

And as a testament to the growing popularity of women's softball in general, today's game is on ESPNU at noon, and tomorrow's action will be on ESPN (game two at 1:00 PM, game three if necessary after that). This is your open thread for the weekend - if you're following along with the softball action, join us here. It's always great to get to the Women's College World Series; even better if you can beat Georgia along the way.

Go Vols.
