Wednesday’s Daily Briefing: South Carolina beats Florida in College World Series to end 2010-11 season

When South Carolina won its second consecutive College World Series title on Tuesday night, I thought immediately of two things.
 

No. 1, UF coach Kevin O’Sullivan, who was on FAU’s coaching staff as an up-and-coming young go-getter in the early 1990s, will have to wait to get his first CWS championship. However, there is no doubt the Gators are on solid footing under O’Sullivan.
 

FAU fans who saw UF pound the Owls early in the season at Roger Dean Stadium can attest to that. But, because of his ties to FAU, it may be difficult for Owl fans to pull against O'Sullivan.
 

No. 2 is that the Gamecocks’ victory officially brings an end to the 2010-11 NCAA college sports season - a season that almost now stretches into July.
 

When people who work in or around college athletics ask “What do you do in the summer” the response is “what summer?”
 

The college sports season just ended, but the next one is just around the corner. The unofficial start to the 2011-12 season will start in just a few weeks later with Sun Belt Media Days reportedly scheduled for mid July - I’m hearing July 18 and 19 with the Sun Belt sticking with an impersonal video conference format.
 

The summers are way too short and the season will be here before we know it.
