The first round of the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament is over, and sixteen teams are still alive on the road to Omaha. Last week we gave you our predictions for the first weekend, so let's check on those and see how we did (Answer: NOT GOOD!)

Gainsville Regional

Prediction: Florida

Winner: Florida

Los Angeles Regional

The Texas A&M arms were still good for the most part, but they didn't get much help from their offense and went 1-2.

OOOF. Getting bounced from your own regional in two straight losses is downright embarrassing. Hot-hitting four-seed Stony Brook beat UCF to win the round.

Gary Regional

Yeah, I was wrong on this one. So was everybody else. We all agree the Big Ten doesn't baseball well.

Houston Regional

Another 1-2 performance by a regional host. How hospitable of you!
