Also, I think a recent projection has us at NC State now. I guess we will just have to wait and see!

They are actually seeding 1-16 this year, and matching them up accordingly. It was announced in October. 1-8 are simply guaranteed to host the Super (if they win). Previously it was 8 National seeds, and 8 at large hosts, as you mention. But there was no rhyme nor reason as to how the National Seeds and the At-Large host sites matched up, other than proximity. Now it is the way it should have been all along. This is why we can't just worry about not making a top 8 seed, but still be in the mix to host. The 16 seeds conceivably will host their own Regionals.

Yeah these projections change every week, so I'm sure they will change again after the SEC tournament.


But if it is NC State, they have a pretty good resume.


They don't have a lot of mid-week losses.


They got a sweep @ Clemson.


And their only two series losses are vs UNC (swept) and at FSU

Weird! I guess I stand corrected as well lol. Ultimately, I don't think this will make much of a difference, but sure, why not?!

Yeah NCSU is a solid team. I feel like they've kinda flown under the radar a little bit, but you're right. Their resume is pretty impressive.

Default Re: Hosting as a 2 seed?

Sorry for the multiple posts, but I also want to point out how crappy it is that we have to play at 9 PM EST (possibly even later). You would think as the highest seeded team playing today that we would get to play a little earlier in the day, seeing as this is no big deal for a team from Missouri who is the lowest seeded team in the field.

I told others a few weeks ago I'd put it out of my head, with how the season was going. Then we started doing well, and I needed a reminder myself LOL.

If you look at what they did, they rewarded the 1 seed by giving them the prime spot of 5:30 PM (Wednesday), the 2 seed got the 2nd best slot of 2, the 3rd seed got the early game and the 4 seed got the late night game since they are the lowest of the seeds to get a bye.

As the 5 seed we match up against the 4 seed, so that's why we are also forced to play in that late night spot.

I mean, I get it. Itís just stupid. We could have had the early game today as the highest seed thatís playing today and hen gone on to play on he later game against the 4 seed when we arenít the high seed.

Rather than save our pitching (as Tanner would do) it looks like this team wants to keep playing and win as many as they can even if they are exhausted by the time they reach a regional.

With the way the first half of the season went, they really don't have a choice, unlike Tanner's teams.

Not sure what 'under the radar' means but NC State has been ranked in the top 5 most of the year. I believe they are currently 10th. They are 40-14 while playing in the tough ACC...27-9 at home. They have a beyond solid team that can score, field and pitch. They get a regional at Doak Field and they will be a handful.

How high do you think USC could get if they go 3-1 or win it all?

If higher seeds go all the way USC's RPI match up is Arky 4, UF 1, Miss 9, and UF 2-#. That is some impressive wins and a tourney win.

Our RPI should go up some even if we lose against higher RPI teams, BUT a lot depends on what other nonSEC teams do.

If we won the SECT somehow (doubtful, but we'll see), I would imagine we would be top 15 atleast and should host a Regional.

I still can't get over us losing to PC. If we could just take that one loss away I'm willing to bet we would be top 20 already and possibly even top 15.



One thing to keep an eye on are teams like KY (25th) and MSU (26th) that are already out of the SECT. If we win tonight I think we jump both of those teams, plus a few others to get in that 23-24 range.
