    Default College Baseball Discussion Thread

    I know this won't get a huge response, but when has that ever stopped me?

    The season is about a week and a half away from starting and every poll I have seen, without exception, is declaring Texas Christian #1. This is no surprise as Texas Christian returns nearly all of a team that made it to Omaha last year. However, anything can happen. Last year's champions had never been to the College World Series and were a #2 seed in a bottom 8 regional. 3 super regional hosts made it to Omaha and 2 were gone by their second game.

    I'm expecting the ACC to be the best conference from top to bottom. The SEC is a little top heavy with nothing after the first four or five teams. The Big 12 will have a seeded team or two in the end and a few more in the tournament, but they will be separated into 3 tiers with a large dropoff in between each. This leaves the WCC and Pac 12 as the last two major conferences and between the two, I see one team on the same level as the tops of the previously mentioned conferences.

    Geaux Tigers.

    Is there is a better way to start a season than hitting a home run on the pitcher's 11th pitch? Dwanya Williams-Sutton gave ECU a 1-0 lead in the team's first at-bat of the season. With Ole Miss about to come to bat for the first time the Pirates lead 1-0. Ole Miss's first batter hit a home run to start the season last year.

    Yesterday Jared Poche threw the first solo no hitter for LSU since the '70s. Take that, West Point.

    Jared Poche has now pitched 15 innings and given up one hit.

    Have to think Wake is locked in as a host if they win today.

    I agree. Their RPI is already 12 and there are 16 hosts.

    By the way, how bad does a team have to be to lose every game? St. Peter's went 0-38 this year and they're in the MEAC. They didn't exactly play the elite of the elite every week.

    By the way @Hitman Hart, what's your opinion on the new ACC tournament format? I preferred the old one and the weather seems to agree.
