Single: Rating the super-est of the supers
As seems to be the case every June, the super regionals are a mix of classic programs, still-new power programs and a couple of where-did-they-come-from schools. Every matchup is a must-watch because of what's on the line. But if I could get in touch with Scotty and beam myself to see at least part of every three-game series, this is the order in which I would prioritize them. I've graded them on a scale of 1 to 10, based on the overall quality of the matchup as well as the star power.
