Buechele's Mullet Brings Good Luck

It wouldn't be baseball without a little bit of superstition, and that's just what OU third baseman Garrett Buechele brings to the table.

One of the most talked about topics following the Super Regional Series is Buechele's mullet.

It's things like that that normally become the talk of the College World Series.

So for those of you who think it's getting ridiculous, take this mindset.

Baseball is a sport built on superstitions.

Guys spin the bat at the plate a certain amount of times before an AB.

Guys undo their batting gloves and reattach them before each pitch.

Guys don't step on the baselines when taking the field or leaving it.

And the list goes on.

In other words, mark this down as another superstition in baseball.

Clearly the Sooners have done well with the mullet growing out, winning five of their six playoff games so far, including an undefeated Norman Regional and two of three against No. 1 Virginia in the Super Regionals.

So my suggestion is for Buechele to keep it.

After all, it has been a part of OU's ride to Omaha, and who's to think it's about to stop now.

Here's Buechele's own thoughts on the mullet and how it will be widely publicized at Johnny Rosenblatt this weekend.
