    Gators are in, I am very confident. How many games we win - not so confident.

    A little concerning that RPI doesn’t seem to have carried the day with regard to host sites. We could be in trouble.

    No idea, but I'm certain our season has at least another 15 hours or so left at minimum!

    Sending the 11th SEC team west to go against 3 west coast schools would be so fun that now I'm gonna be disappointed when it doesn't happen.

    Thanks Wes. I truly think we could win the one out West. Start Cags game 1 while he’s fresh and hopefully get a good outing. Hit some and We are in a very advantageous position, but for now I’ll just be happy if we get in

    D1 and Baseball America have us as among the very last teams in... very worrisome. RPI #30 is solid but not great but the SoS may save us plus Cags... and Sully's reputation.

    I'll just be happy if we get in, but I would love for the team to go out West and play teams we haven't faced this year.

    I think the NCAA will want to put some of the last in ACC teams at SEC sites and some of the last in SEC teams at ACC teams. I think we would be the 3 seed at UNC, Clemson, Virginia, or Clown School. Upset team of the tourny? Watch out for Lamar!

    Is Lamar getting at large bid w/ 65 RPI? I do agree as good as any 3 seed we will have, but they will be watching w/ 44 wins

    And Id like to think at least top 32 is seeded as top 32 not geographical..but wishful thinking probably.

    Indiana gets at large w/ 55 RPI, but a solid conf record. Maybe Lamar will get in...;)

    Duke guys don't seem too excited to be playing at Norman. Don't blame them.
