    Good to see that GT is still a national seed. I assume you are confident that they will finish up ACC play in strong fashion. Not to throw out too broad a question, but what do you think is required from the Jackets to maintain a national seed.

    OK…you had Auburn in last week….we go 3-1 (only loss to a top 25 Troy team on the road)….and you drop us out!!!??? We have an RPI in the top 20!!!

      When I did the brackets….I somehow overlooked Auburn. They should be included.

        10-4…I was just wondering. Granted, we (Auburn…yes I’m a homer) are hanging on by a thread….Thanks…I love the site!!

    I sure don’t see Clemson as a regional host. They’ve lost all three series they’ve played against good teams (UNC, UVA, South Carolina). If they don’t win a series against either Florida St. or Georgia Tech, I wouldn’t even include them in the tournament.

      Clemson’s RPI is very high so they probably going to get the benefit of the doubt. The ACC Atlantic is a utter disaster!rnSent on the Sprintu00ae Now Network from my BlackBerryu00ae

    Oh, Foley. Baseball America and ESPN are acknowledging ASU will be in the tournament. Maybe Rafferty should be doing the Reg Projections.

  • Jethawk56

    No west coast teams as a national seed…….? Realize you provide an eastern/southern focus but wow !!!!n

  • Guest

    uconn as a four seed? i know the big east is having a down year but to have our projected conference champ as a four?

  • Jmcglone

    Brian how does Florida wind up the number one overall seed when South Carolina beat Florida two of three, as well as Vanderbilt two out of three.
