    San Diego and Gonzaga are both at Fullerton?

    By the way, I’ve seen references on CB Daily to P’dine being ineligible due to the athletic dept snafu last year but their post-season ban was only for last season and they are eligible this year.

    Like that Michigan State is listed – BUT they are listed twice – Once in the Florida State region and once in the Georgia region…also, you’ve listed both Michigan State and Purdue as projected B1G champs…really enjoy these projections each week – keep up the good work!

    Caught another one.  Georgia Southern and College of Charleston both at Georgia Tech.

      That is what happens when you are running on nearly no sleep after a long weekend. I have corrected the mistakes. Thanks guys! Sent on the Sprint® Now Network from my BlackBerry®

    Columbia as champ of the Ivy League? I thought earlier Ivy League review touted Dartmouth?

    • http://collegebaseballdaily.com Brian Foley

      I don’t believe we put out our Ivy League Preview yet…it is between Columbia and Dartmouth though IMHO Sent on the Sprint® Now Network from my BlackBerry®

        so one weekend is enough to knock them out of the projections entirely? I understand knocking them down, but when most polls still have them ranked in the top 25 and other pac 12 schools show up when they aren’t ranked (and not expected to be as good overall)…

          UCLA has to show me more before I put them in…it is all subjective right now! Sent on the Sprint® Now Network from my BlackBerry®

    No Texas Tech.  I think Spencer may have a very good club this year and they barely missed last year
