Monday was Day 4 for me here at the College World Series. Here’s what it looked like from “Vince’s View.”
99.1 THE Sports Animal’s coverage of the Vols in the College World Series in Omaha is presented by: Senior Benefit, AG Heins Company, Bobcat of Knoxville, Mercedes Benz of Knoxville and Chattanooga Whiskey.
Vince’s CWS Trip Day 4

*Radio reports from Omaha for stations in Nashville and Florence, AL
*Lunch at Addy’s Sports Bar…fantastic “Char Buffed” wings that are chargrilled, smoky with a hint of buffalo sauce!
*The Vols practiced late in the afternoon back at Creighton University
*Started prep for Tennessee’s opponent on Tuesday in an elimination game Texas
*Returned to TD Ameritrade Park and enjoyed a fabulous pitching duel between Jack Leiter (15 Ks for Vandy) and Sam Highfill/Evan Justice (2 hits allowed for NC State) in a 1-0 Wolfpack win sending them to the semifinals at 2-0.
According to ESPN Stats & Info…
NC State is the first team to beat the overall #1 seed (Arkansas) and the defending National Champs (Vandy) in the same NCAA tournament.
They're the fourth team to face both in same tourney since seeding began in 1999
