    College baseball conference tournaments are a joke. The only “momentum” in baseball comes from whoever is on the mound. That’s it. It’s neither rocket science nor basketball–things where momentum makes a difference. Likewise, so is sending schools across the country to play regionals, usually at the same locations hosted by the same Southeast Conference schools every year.

    The Conference tournaments are nothing but money grabs. Judging by the looks of many of the crowds that I have seen on TV they may not even break even at some venues. Even the SEC games that haven’t featured Bama have looked sparce. Just give the automatic bid to the regular season champion and be done with it. Why should you play your way into the tournament over the last 4 games when you could separate yourself from the pack in the first 56 games.

    What do you think a team’s RPI needs to be to make it into the tourney as an at-large? Right now, this says my Texas State will make it as a conference champion, but they have to beat UT-Arlington and Lamar both today if they want that to happen. According to warrennolan.com’s RPI projection, they’re #44 right now. Is that good enough to bust into the tourney if they don’t win twice today? Thoughts?

  • LibertyFlame

    I cant believe we jumped up to a 3 spot in Columbia Region,

  • EA Ropp

    Looks like Mercer University just secured a spot. First time in 27 years. Great offensive team and will create some noise in their region. Congratulations….GO BEARS!

  • Southern Miss

    I think you all need to redo your sience above! Go Eagles!!!!!

  • dheyne

    Rider University clinched the MAAC in 3 games. Watch out for the underdogs! Go Rider!

  • Curious fan

    How can UNC be in the field even though they didnt even qualify for the ACC tourney? Yes i know there schedule strength but the mens hoops team had a tough schedule too…….guess Fox has more pull than Roy ….wow who would have thought that!!!

  • coonass

    LSU as a 3 seed…wow, must be a REALLY strong regional
