    It is kind of surprising after a national title to not see LSU anywhere in the top 25, and it sounds like BA didn’t even have them in the top 30. With the success the fairly new staff has had there, and the proof now in the title, you would think kids would be going en masse to play at great facilities in front of a good fan base.

    Scott, LSU lost three of their top four recruits to the draft, including two at the eleventh hour of deadline day.

    Also, I think you’ll notice some very significant differences between BA’s ranking and Collegiate Baseball’s, which was released last month.

    Walt, I know your point, but isn’t that a reality of all college baseball that teams have to accept? UNC lost Tate and Jacob Turner, as well as two other solid recruits, as still has a pretty solid class with Goodwin as the headliner. Texas lost Everett Williams, Colton Cain, and Jacob Cowan. Both those programs still merited top 10 in the BA. I won’t feign to have seen many of the kids LSU brought in, but not many of them pop off the page. So I guess maybe the better question is, how could two different sources have it so differently? That is the one difference in the two that is most stark. Dare I ask which publication we cast or lot of faith with?
