The 1991 College World Series was played at Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, Nebraska from May 31 to June 8. The forty-fifth tournament's champion was Louisiana State University, coached by Skip Bertman. The Most Outstanding Player was Gary Hymel of Louisiana State University. This was the first year the 8 qualifying teams were split into two double elimination brackets of 4 teams each (the 1,8,4, and 5 seeds in one bracket, with the 2,3,6, and 7 seeds in the other), with the winners of each bracket meeting in a 1 game championship. The NCAA, in an agreement with CBS, switched to this format so there would be one, made for TV, winner take all championship game. Previously, all 8 teams were in one double elimination bracket. In 2003, the dual bracket format was kept in place, but the final series between the two bracket winners was made a best 2 out of 3 series.

Famous quotes containing the words world, college and/or series:
“Some burn damp faggots, others may consume
The entire combustible world in one small room
As though dried straw, and if we turn about
The bare chimney is gone black out
Because the work had finished in that flare.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“The mode of founding a college is, commonly, to get up a subscription of dollars and cents, and then, following blindly the principles of a division of labor to its extreme,a principle which should never be followed but with circumspection,to call in a contractor who makes this a subject of speculation,... and for these oversights successive generations have to pay.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“A sophistical rhetorician, inebriated with the exuberance of his own verbosity, and gifted with an egotistical imagination that can at all times command an interminable and inconsistent series of arguments to malign an opponent and to glorify himself.”
—Benjamin Disraeli (18041881)
