New WCWS Schedule

The weather yesterday in Oklahoma City had tragic consequences that of course make sports seem far less important. We will certainly keep the folks in that area, who have been hit hard twice in a short period of time, in our thoughts today; and, we very much encourage readers to do whatever they can to help Texas' neighbors to the north. We remember Hurricane Katrina all too well, and can tell you that every little donation and act of kindness really does help.

In OKC, though, the show must go on and last night's games have been rescheduled. Tennessee and Washington will now play at 11 AM on ESPN2, followed by Texas-OU at 1:30 PM, also on ESPN2. The two elimination games (Florida-Nebraska, Michigan-Arizona State) that were scheduled for those times will now take place tonight.

The next two elimination games (tonight's winners against this afternoon's losers) will be played tomorrow at noon and 2:30 on ESPN, with the first bracket championship games to follow tomorrow night. The second, "if necessary" bracket championship games will happen on Monday.
