    Just my opinion but they’ve had about 4-5 legit arms each of the last few years as well as a couple of bats pushing them—

    Miami must have had a great recruiting class or something, ranked much higher than I expected coming off last season that ended in a regional.

    I have seen UF at 4, 13 and 17. Truth is none of it matters. Handle your business and it will all work out.

    I only kind of agree none of it matters. At one point I went back and checked each champion but even Coastal Carolina was a preseason top 10-15 team. One of the top 5ish preseason teams will highly likely win the NC based on the last decade or so.

    We are all around those parameters. I would expect us to be lower based on last year but playing in the SEC if we handle our business we will skyrocket up any charts. Last year we started at 3 and now have a lot to prove after that year.

    Preseason ratings are just that—preseason ratings.......

    When the bell rings, then we will all see who belongs where—
