    Brian, I trust you read through Aaron Fitt’s and BA’s online chat from this afternoon and noticed a couple interesting responses…

    1. In answering a question regarding the top5 conferences this year, Fitt indicated that C-USA was #3, after the SEC and ACC, and ahead of the Big 12 and Pac-10. He then said the Big West was probably #4 heading into the season. Only one Big 12 team made the Top 25.

    2. He did not hesitate– or fail to throw compliments– when unequivocally stating that he considered Anthony Rendon the #1 pro prospect in college baseball. How could that be for a “one year wonder” who committed all of 12 errors as a true Freshman?

    BTW, I passed along to Brian for posting the C-USA coaches preseason awards and all-conference team. Amazingly, all 9 C-USA coaches unaminously selected Rendon over Roller for preseason POY honors. Hey, but what do they know, as they only have watched the two of them play game after game?

    FYI, I do not include Preseason Conference POY or team selections unless it is included in the release with conference polls.

    I say Roller has a better year then Rendon. That is my prediction and lets see if it comes through.

    Brian, you should run a contest before the season starts and the reader who correctly picks the eventual CWS champion wins a trip to the 2011 CWS, courtesy of TCBB. Good idea?

    Don’t have those funds YET!!! Now if I can get a big-time sponsor, then we will be good!

    I think BA did a better job this year than years past in their preseason poll. No real “outliers”, save for perhaps Georgia Tech being so high. Having said that, I cannot believe that USM and Georgia made the Top 25 (given all their losses on both offense and pitching staff), while Ohio State and A&M didn’t make the cut.
