Nifty tidbit just sent out by @GamecockBaseball -

Did you know - The #Gamecocks were Preseason No. 14 by Collegiate Baseball in 2011 - #Gamecocks went on to win national title.

I'll be the first to say that is to low we should be ranked top 10. I know we have question marks on the mound/bullpen but I also know the talent we have from top to bottom on this years team. There is not a team in the ncaa that we cannot beat...no one! There I'm done beating my chest.

Preseasons rankings mean nothing though. It is definitely not an insult to be ranked 14th...as the 13 teams in front of us have the same feelings towards their programs.

My thoughts on the coaching staff are well-documented, but I still can't wait for this season. At least the weather can't be any worse than last year!

Are you saying they mean Jack because his teams are normally more relevant in the preseason than the postseason?

I think 14 is about right.
Pitching is the key now in college baseball, and we have question marks all over the place.
Who is our No. 3 starter...who is our closer, who will be in the pen outside of Evan Beal (who is up and down).

Talent is in, but it is virtually unproven.

Should have solid infield defense and I think our outfield will be serviceable...not great, but no terrible. Offense, not to sure.

A clear sign of the talent level in this program right now. As a whole our infield might be the best offensive infield we've had in a while, especially if Kyle Martin can produce like we're hoping. One of the best offensive groups as whole, arguably.

I won't argue anyone that says other teams were better because there's a good many that have been very good, plus with the differences in the bats now, it's hard to really tell.

But when you've got a proven Friday Night guy, and a highly-tested Sophomore on the mound for the weekends (Gumby, Wynkoop) with veteran players like Greiner, Pankake, English behind them you should be a decent club.

Talent wise, it's there to make it back to Omaha. Some of the shenanigans will have to stop from our leaders but if they put their ass in grind-mode, we've got a realistic shot this year, and it's still exciting to be a Gamecock baseball fan.

I think we are going to have a really good year if our pitching staff does what it is supposed to. If our ERA is around a 2.5-3.0 I like our chances for a 2011 type year.
