    Top of the 8th and Ark just tied the game at 7/7. Bottom of 8th just starting and both teams are on their third pitcher.

    Ark batting in the top of the ninth has taken a one run lead, two out and man on third.

    Bottom of 9th just starting with Ole Miss needing one run to send the game into extra innings.

    Certainly LSU at this point should have earned a regional, correct?

    I would assume even with a tournament championship, LSU will not be getting a super regional national bid?

    Baseball America has us at 14 (wtf) and ESPN/USA Today Coaches poll has us as 8th ranked.

    This dude has us 17th in his ranking of the ones to get a regional bid, but says we can easily play our way into the top 16 with a win or 2 in the tourney (which we have already accomplished).

    Baseball rankings really mean nothing as LSU is the highest of the ranked SEC teams in the Coaches poll.

    I don't get how Florida can even be considered as a national seed with 10 OOC losses, to the likes of FAU (twice), Illinois (twice), Florida Gulf Coast, Maryland, Jacksonville, and Florida A&M. I wasn't aware that most of those teams even had a baseball program.

    Whatever happend to the "bad losses" attribute of determining seeds?

    LSU has moved way up in the pecking order so far due to our success and a host of losses by teams that aren't in the chase. But it still doesn't look real good for us getting one of the 8 national seeds.

    Of course the committee does have a few surprises every year.

    We can exorcise a demon if we get by Arkansas and play and beat UF in the Championship Game.
