What does the future hold for the eight teams who made it to Omaha last year?
In the three weeks we have left before the college baseball season begins, it's time to turn our attention to the teams most likely to vie for this year's championship. To start that process, let's being with a progress report on the eight teams that were in the hunt for last year's championship at the College World Series. Omaha in 2007 was scene one of the most unlikely combinations of Cinderella stories the CWS has ever seen, so it was only fitting for Oregon State to make the glass slipper fit again in a successful title defense. It's hard to imagine Omaha this year featuring all eight of last year's teams back, because as you will see each team is facing some pretty big hurdles this spring.
