SEC down to 2 teams in NCAA baseball tourney

The Southeastern Conference was roughed up in the first weekend of the NCAA baseball tournament.

Less than a week after a record-setting 10 SEC teams were invited to the 64-team bracket, eight of them are gone. Only Vanderbilt and Mississippi remain heading into the Super Regional round this weekend.

Florida's quick exit was the most shocking. The Gators were the nation's No. 2 overall seed but lost two straight to College of Charleston and North Carolina.

Perennial powers like LSU and South Carolina are also out of the running much earlier than usual.

The Tigers appeared in control of the Baton Rouge Regional before losing two straight to Houston. The Gamecocks - who won back-to-back College World Series titles in 2010 and 2011 - lost twice to upstart Maryland.
