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.
Even if we don't jump them in RPI, I believe that we're going to be 'regarded' more highly than them in the NCAA's. One of the announcers on the SEC Network today actually made the comment that he thought only 10 SEC teams might make it in, with UK being the other odd-team-out. I think that's extreme, but they've been kind of weak down the stretch. MSU was all but out of of it until the miracle against Florida.

UK would be odd man out because of their 13-17 conference record.

MSU finished the regular season 15-15 in conference.

TAMU's conference record is hurting them, also 13-17. But their run in Hoover so far is helping them.

Playing in the best baseball conference in the Nation has it's pros and cons.

Default Re: Hosting as a 2 seed?

I think this is the year you see a 13-17 SEC team make the postseason. Not sure which one, but the SEC should get 10, possibly 11 teams in.

Last night/this morning, during our game there were several of the commentators that seemed to think KY is in due to their winning of a lot of highly regarded OOC games.

We will see this season if the committee wants to go more by RPI or more by conference record, I suppose. If they decide to almost ignore RPI, then it puts us in the Regional hosting discussion.

They used to also use last 10 games as a factor into deciding who makes the tourney..... i.e. why this seasons team is more deserving with 33 wins (currently) as compared to 35 wins last season.

Whether that is a factor this season or not, I have no idea.

Nevermind...they will announce the host sites Sunday night at 9 pm

Selection show is Monday at Noon on ESPNU.

I'm not sure myself.

I'm interested in seeing how this all works out tbh.

I edited my comment. I should have checked the NCAA site first LOL.

It would be nice to be enjoying some celebratory "hosting" beers in Gatlinburg Sunday night.

What's interesting about that is what if they (just for example) named Columbia as a host site Sunday night, then Monday named us as the 2 seed?

Not that it matters much, but I never understood why they don't do it all the same day.

May be good to be in, but now hosting is back on the table. Need to keep winning.

TAMU has the #16 RPI and won their first 2 in Hoover- they're in despite their lackluster conference record. MSU finished .500 in conference, swept Florida AND Arkansas, and is #26 in RPI - they're in. UK got swept by Vandy, lost a late season series to UT-K, finishing 13-17 in conference, and lost (again) in the first round of the SEC tourney. They're hoping that RPI (currently #25) and their 16-16 record against RPI Group 1 teams (including some good OOC games) is good enough. I think it will be, but the discussion about them was interesting. One comment that was true: you wouldn't want to be the #2 seed stuck having to face Sean Hjelle in the opening game.

I'm still of the opinion that we need to either lose and not burn many arms or win the whole danged thing. If we win say 1 more game and go 2-2 in this tourney, I think it will have just been a waste (with where we stand this season only).

I just feel like they arenít a highly discussed team. A very quiet Top-10 team in my opinion that just takes care of business.
