    7 SEC teams... That'll all change once conference play starts... all the teams start beating each other out...

    Most analyst say that SEC may get 4-5 teams to Omaha again.

    Yes for staying up ridiculously late! (possibly getting up ridiculously early... which is not so cool...)

    1. Texas
    2. Cal State Fullerton
    3. Tulane
    4. S. Carolina
    5. LSU
    6. Florida
    7. Miami
    8. Rice
    9. TX A&M
    10. Vandy
    11. GA Tech
    12. Arizona
    13. Arkansas
    14. Florida State
    15. North Carolina
    16. Stanford
    17. Ole Miss
    18. Georgia
    19. Witchita State
    20. ULL
    21. Texas Christian
    22. USC
    23. Baylor
    24. Oregon State
    25. Nebraska

    The top 11 I decided on pretty easily, but 12-25 was the tough part. If Tulane loses today, I will probably switch Tulane and S. Carolina.

    There are teams with great records, but they have cream puff schedules.

    Dont believe that USC should be so high, if you look at who all they have played... only team with a winning record is Pepperdine, who beat the Cocks.

    Arkansas has earned a higher ranking IMO, because they have beat some decent teams, coming away with only 1 loss overall.

    But overall, this Top 25 is just about as accurate as mine.

    South Carolina has used the Penn State method for early season success for a long time...Remember the '00 season, when they ran out to that gaudy record coming into the Box?

    We won the Friday night game with a bottom of the 9th home run, then won Saturday, only to lose to all-everything Kip Boughknight in the Sunday matinee...

    They came in riding high...and then got punked out by LSU when the real test came...That series showed LSU they were great, and really proved to be the catalyst for the rest of the season...

    I played Middle School Football, and Dixie Youth baseball with Kip, as well as went to Highschool with him (3 years, he was 1 year older than me). He was a good athlete, but I got a sack against him in our rivalry game between our middle school (Busbee and Northside). He is a good athlete, I also went to highschool with Steven Whetstone, another USC pitcher. Kip and Steven failed to win any State Championships (losing in the Semis on Black Sunday as they call it). BC Highschool has gone on to win State '98 (the year after they left), '00, 03', to become one of the premier "farms" for USC and Clemson.

    how could anyone possibly try to make a top 25 given no ones seen but their own team minus a couple others?

    just more proof that people are obsessed with senseless polls. :hihi: :hihi:
