2013 NCAA Regional Projections (May 2nd)

13regionalprojections_smAs we’re now well into the 2013 college baseball season, College Baseball Daily continues our countdown to Selection Monday with our latest 2013 Regional Projections.

For this week’s projections, instead of being solely compiled based on RPI like they have been done in past weeks, every aspect was taken into consideration. College Baseball Daily’s Ginger Poulson (@gingerpoulson) compiled this list after analyzing RPI, overall records, conference standings, overall talent and several other factors. If you have any questions about the projections feel free to leave a comment below or send her a tweet.

Enjoy the regional projections!

    Hi Ginger,
    How do you see it affecting things if South Carolina takes the series against Vanderbilt? IF they play like they did against LSU last weekend I think they’ll have a chance to do that.

  • Coastal Carolina fan.

    Ginger you do know that Coastal Carolina has won the last 6 Big South tournaments don’t you? How can you have Campbell coming out of the Big South has the auto-bid.
