The Tigers will find out their NCAA fate tonight at 7:00 on ESPN2, and I'll have reaction from Rittman and the players right here!

Heavy SEC bias as always with the softball selection committee. Can't believe Ole Miss got in with a record barely over .500. And it's ridiculous that ACC Champ Duke is not a top-8 seed.

Lol more SEC bias. Bama just got a No.14 seed. I guarantee they send the Tigers there again!

Yep I called it! The committee is SO predictable! The Tigers got screwed out of hosting a regional and had to go to the toughest regional in their first full season, and now they get the shaft again. At least this Bama team is very beatable unlike the last one that won it all. In fact, the Tigers have a better record than Bama, including 3 extra-inning losses to top 10 teams! 2 of them were SEC teams.

Cagle and Logoleo took the Tigers to their first NCAA regional in Tuscaloosa 3 years ago, and now they'll play their last NCAA regional there. They face Southeastern Louisiana first on Friday at 2:00. If the Tigers win the Tuscaloosa regional, they would face the winner of the Knoxville regional, which will probably be a rematch with Tennessee. That was one of the top 10 teams that beat the Tigers in extra innings early in the season.

Chris Hamby is at the stadium, and we'll have interviews with Rittman and the players posted in a bit!

Clemson (34-17) will open the double-elimination regional on Friday against Southeastern Louisiana (45-13). First pitch is currently slated for 2 p.m. ET on ACC Network. Earning the No. 14 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, Alabama (33-17) hosts USC Upstate (30-21) at 4:30 p.m. ET on ESPN+.

The winner of the Tuscaloosa Regional will advance to a best-of-three NCAA Super Regional against the winner of the Knoxville Regional.

In only the fifth season, the Tigers have been selected to the NCAA Tournament every year eligible making its first appearance in 2021 at the Tuscaloosa Regional before hosting the previous two seasons. The Tigers are coming off the ACC Tournament, where they defeated Virginia in the quarterfinals, 8-1, before falling to top-seeded Duke, 4-3, in 10 innings in the semifinal matchup.

Clemson is one of five ACC schools selected to the NCAA Tournament, joining No. 10 Duke, No. 15 Florida State, Virginia Tech and Virginia.
