Weekly polls will be circulated from Feb. 22-June 29 following the 64th annual NCAA World Series in Omaha, Neb., and final CWS competition at historic Rosenblatt Stadium.

    I don’t think the NC State Wolfpack team is getting the respect they deserve in any of the college baseball rankings. For example, they beat #21 UC Irvine and have a better record than them. On top of that, they’ve won a game against two other ranked teams including then #15 Miami and 2 of 3 games against then #1 Virginia. I think that it is time that this team starts showing up on some people’s radar – even if they’re in a loaded ACC conference.
