4/23 Softball Bracketology Breakdown

Last Four In:  Charlotte, Texas Tech, Michigan, North Carolina
First Four Out:  Utah, Louisville, Nebraska, USF
There is a bit of a shakeup this week among the National Seeds. The ACC almost adds two more to the field, which seems more normal (Louisville part of First Four Out). It is difficult to leave so many teams out that are on the bubble because a lot of their resumes are identical in some way. There are a couple of teams who could potentially host should a team like Arkansas, Alabama, or Washington slide off the National Seed line. Missouri and Louisiana would be the next to host followed by Mississippi State and potentially Arizona should things go their way the next few weeks, but a lot has to happen for them to host.
