2012 CBD Season Preview: SEC

2011 was a year of confirmation for the SEC. Not only did South Carolina claim its second national championship in as many years, but SEC teams occupied the top three national rankings for the majority of the season. Furthermore, all three of those teams made the trip to Omaha, while seven teams from the SEC made the NCAA tournament—both tallies being the most of any conference in college baseball. In essence, 2011 cemented the SEC’s ascendancy atop college baseball, and 2012 promises to be more of the same.  Continue reading 2012 CBD Season Preview: SEC

UGA’s Johnathan Taylor Drafted by Texas Rangers

One of the craziest things I have ever seen, the Texas Rangers selected Georgia outfielder Johnathan Taylor in the 33rd round of the 2011 MLB Draft. In case you don’t know, Taylor was seriously injured on March 6th when he had a collision with teammate Zach Cone which injured the C-5 and C-6 vertebrae. He has shown some improvement but still has very little movement below his waist. Do you think the Rangers made a bad selection so early in the Draft when it is highly unlikely that Taylor will ever play baseball again? Is the MLB Draft too long when teams are wasting 33rd round picks on players? We have included some fan reactions below and feel free to leave your comments.
