Social Media Reacts to Tennessee’s Super Regional Host Snub

Tennessee Regional
Twitter reacts to Tennessee advancing to the Super Regional round with a win over Charlotte.

The NCAA announced on Tuesday morning that Tennessee and Southern Miss will play in the Hattiesburg Super Regional this weekend in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. After both Tennessee and Southern Miss advanced out of their Regionals without being the host seed, the committee had a decision to make between the two cities of Knoxville and Hattiesburg.

Despite Tennessee having advantages in the comparison, the committee ended up selecting Hattiesburg as the host city for the Super Regional weekend. The Vols will look for two wins over the three-game series starting on Saturday afternoon in order to advance to the College World Series.

Reactions on social media, though, were all over the place. Tennessee fans were shocked at the decision while fans of other teams started to chime in on the conversation to continue the chaos. After just being released for 60 minutes, the NCAA’s tweet revealing the Hattiesburg Super Regional has 338 replies and 505 quotes.

After just 60 minutes of being released, the NCAA’s tweet announcing the Hattiesburg Super Regional matchup between Tennessee and Southern Miss has 338 replies and 505 quotes.

Here’s a small look at what some of the comments to the NCAA’s Hattiesburg tweet have been:

“Absolute trash”

“Fuel to the fire for Tony V! Own it boys now go take care of business!!”

“Terrible. Hattiesburg Applebees finna be BUMPING tho”

I would like an explanation for this. Tennessee is ranked higher in every metric. Knoxville > Hattiesburg. It must be based on not wanting the SEC to host too many supers but this is a shame. What happened to the team who won the higher seed regional hosting?

Absolute abomination y’all picked a town of 47k people over Knoxville with all the amenities it has. Plus Tennessee’s resume was better

Looking forward to the rain delays this weekend in Hattiesburg”
