so: collegiate baseball: from 6th to 17th baseball america: from 8th to 15th the good news is that rankings don't mean **** in college baseball. we just need to take care of business against florida and vanderbilt. if we can go 3-3 there i'll be "happy." this team has been headed in the wrong direction the last few weeks despite a sweep against bama, and CPM's coaching ability has gotten to the point where it can't overcome the mistakes this team has been making. these guys need to regroup and reassess what they want from this season and grab it, because frankly, it's up to them from now on. a top-eight seeding is pretty much out of the picture now unless we go on one helluva tear or the pitching staff does some soul searching or figures out what the word "consistency" is. i expect a good run to the SEC tourney, and i expect to host a regional, but beyond that i'm not really sure what will happen. SEC baseball has gotten to the point where it is entirely too competitive to have more than one midweek game in a week. i know that all the teams have to play midweek games too, but every team in the SEC has a few rough weekends and i think that it is probably to be attributed to that -- it becomes even tougher when you're on the road. but seriously, Ole Miss deserves their lofty ranking, they played some solid baseball this weekend! i don't know how much of it was bianco's coaching job or how much was LSU just being outplayed, but whatever it was, it was something else.
