    Do you mean number of games against top 25 because others have more impressive records against top 25. Also, how is Indiana 2-0 against Top 25?

    They beat Lousiville twice for the 2-0. But they should now be 4-1 with the series against us added in the mix.

    No, I meant that 9-8 is excellent for what we thought this team would be this year, especially in light of all the personnel setbacks they've had to deal with. 10 teams in the country have a better record against top 25 competition, and 2 of those teams haven't played nearly as many teams as we have.

    UF is actually 10-11 vs that top 25. They must have overlooked the Indiana series for both teams.

    UF has been #19 on Collegiate Baseball News for a couple of weeks.

    Going by points, UF is #37 on the USA Today ESPN Coaches poll.

    The Gators are unranked and not included as a team to watch on Perfect Game.

    UF received votes on National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, but they list the teams outside the top 25 alphabetically.

    This weekend at LSU is huge for both teams after LSU lost 2 of 3 at home to USC. I'd be happy if we come out of Red Stick with a win. I'd be off the charts ecstatic if we somehow find a way to win the series.
