UAB preview

Conference USA has posted a preview on the UAB Blazers. They enter the season with a new head coach in Brian Shoop who comes from Birmingham-Southern where he had a record of 692-307-1. He returns 21 letter winners with 4 transfers from Birmingham-Southern in addition to the 11 newcomers from the high school and junior college ranks. The full preview is available here.

UAB Media Relations Department also has posted a preview on the upcoming season which is available here.

C-USA Coaches Poll

Conference USA has released the results from the Pre-Season Coaches Poll. The Rice Owls are the unanimous choice to win the conference receiving all nine first place votes. They are followed by Tulane and Houston to fill out the Top 3. Rice had both Joe Savery and Cole St. Clair named Pre-Season player and pitcher of the year. The full release with the rest of the Top 5 in the conference and the rest of the Conference team is available here.

Rivals.com Top 25

Rivals has released their top 25 for the upcoming season. The top team is Rice with UNC, University of South Carolina, Virginia, and Miami rounding out the top 5. I believe that Miami is a little overrated being in the top 5 but we will have to see how the season falls to find out the truth. It is nice to see 3 ACC teams in the Top 5.

The full poll is available here.

Southern Miss Stadium News

The Southern Miss baseball program is making some serious progress at Pete Taylor Park. The stadium is getting a facelift for the upcoming season and the Southern Miss Sports Information has posted a new photo gallery on the official site which can be viewed here.

Update: One of my frequent readers sent me a link to some more detailed information on the project which can be read here.

I have been slacking off lately but with the recent holidays and great football games on TV (see Boise State vs Oklahoma), I have not had too much time to be blogging. You can expect me to be blogging more in the near future and especially with the season starting up at the end of the month.

UAB picks up a late Transfer

UAB has picked up a very late transfer for the upcoming season in Dustin Colburn who will be playing for the school during the 2007 season.

The full press release on Mr. Colburn is available here.
