baseball regionals

Everybody is wondering what it will take for the Gamecocks to host a regional.  Well the guys at College Baseball Blog currently have us playing in the Austin Regional against #2 overall seed University of Texas.  How much will this change if we win the series again UGA and maybe win a game or two next week in the SEC Tournament?   

I have also heard the rumor that we might be heading to the Clemson regional, which I think would make for some great baseball.
