Default UCLA Baseball team on Sportscenter

Just saw this year's CWS champs on Sportscenter - like, live on the set and appearing on several segments. I don't remember us being invited on SC even after back-to-back title wins. Am I "misremembering?"

You beat me to it. I saw this as well and came to CT to bitch about it.


ESPN hates us.

Yeah, kinda f'ed up imo. As I was watching it, I tried to see the logic why they got a SportsCenter involvement and we didnt. The only reasonable thing I came us that UCLA is in Los Angelas, one of the two locations(I believe) SportsCenter is shot. I bet our kids would have loved a flight to wither Bristol or LA for a SportsCenter cameo. whatever...

That was 3 years ago. ESPN is doing more with baseball these days. They even have the baseball equivalent of NFL red zone.

I think the team will have a viable reason to b!tch if they win it all in 2014 and don't get an invite. Hey, maybe the guys can use it as motivation for next season, I don't know.

Maybe because UCLA is in LA where there is an ESPN studio.

I'm willing to accept this explanation. I don't think ESPN "hates" us. I think ESPN is a big, often-unprofessional entertainment channel posing as a sports news network, but I don't think they hate us.

Default Re: UCLA Baseball team on Sportscenter

Three reasons.
1-Baseball has grown on ESPN the last three years, and they really made an effort this year to get the regionals on TV and treat it like March Madness.

2-UCLA has an interesting story...out of the 100+ national titles, this is the first in baseball. (Granted, I believe about 60 percent of their titles are in basketball, volleyball, tennis and water polo).

Side note...I thought UCLA football had more...but they just have one.

3-Sportscenter LA
That broadcast really puts emphasis on the LA teams and highlights them.
Same way Sportscenter NY would high the say a NY basketball team winning the NCAA title.

I really do feel that we were one of the major contributors of how College baseball has exploded on to the scene via fans... If we didn't have the 3 yr, record breaking, back to back natty's run like we did, then college baseball coverage wouldn't be what it is today... They showed every play of the post season for college baseball for the first time ever this year... When the whole thing started rolling for us, we were considered to be just another Cinderella team, that was good, but couldn't take out the big boys... We had our backs to the wall and three outs away from never even making it to Omaha when Walker belts a 3 run homer vs Coastal Carolina just to get us to Omaha then we lose to Oklahoma the very first game... Everybody wrote us off at that point, but we all know what happened after that... I don't think the most exciting part was the wins, it was how we won those games is why people started getting excited about College baseball... We brought the excitement to the game of college baseball again and that is something no one could ever deny... We had a pitcher evolve and grow into being one of the most dominate pitchers to ever take the mound in Omaha and a team that could have their backs to the wall with one out away from losing, but always came up with that clutch hit to push us over the top... I mean it was exciting watching our team during that stretch for all fans of the game, not just Carolina fans...

There is an ESPN studio in Charlotte. 45 min away from Columbia.(probably same drive time as LA with dealing with traffic.) ESPNU is based out of that studio.

So, not a valid argument.

I think it is more a progression of ESPNs coverage.

Same reason the jets are always talked about no matter how bad they suck. Hometown team. They did say they were going to out more emphasis on baseball. Maybe if unc didn't screw us out of a trip to Omaha, that could have been us. Can't excuse those errors though.

I'll take it as a compliment... the ratings they got during our run is why they are emphasizing college baseball.

THIS^ We won some EPIC games in that run... the kind of games people will remember who weren't fans of either team. Even my friends that went to Clemson were texting me during the 2nd Virginia game, because they couldn't believe what they were seeing.
