No there are not. There are just 16 regional host sites. Just because you host does not mean you are the top 16 seeds in the country. See my comment above that some teams host as a 2 seed due to facility issues that the 1 seed has.

We are hosting.... That is not even an issue.

Still has no effect on if you host or not...number 2 seeds have hosted before

And if that is the case there would be 16 national seeds instead of 8

I have faith that the NCAA will continue to line their pockets with as much of the green stuff as possible. This leads me to believe we are locks to host regionals, LSU prolly close to being a lock too based on stadium size and interest in baseball eventhough they are sitting outside top 16 RPI.

Like I said, I hope we dont find out, and I also hope that if we do have to find out, I hope im wrong. Definately would be an interesting conference call.

A national seed? Based on what exactly? We better show we can dominate in the SEC tourney for that to occur.

All we need to do to get a national seed is convince the committee that chooses the national seeds that we deserve one. No more, no less. We can give our opinions on what that will take all we want, but our opinions aren't the deciding factor.

Body of work.

If I were a committee member I would look at our RPI, how we did against our key SEC opponents, our road record, and our unfortunate string of injuries. I think we land just outside the bubble unless we crush the SEC tourney. If there were 10 seeds, I think we'd get #10.

IMO, if we get one more from Vandy (win the series) and win 2 in Hoover, we can feel secure in a national seed; 1 in Hoover, we're on the bubble for a national seed; 2 and Q in Hoover and we're on the outside looking in. If we lose the next two to Vandy, I don't think we get a national seed unless we win the SEC Tourney.

If we sweep Vandy, I think 1 in Hoover and we can feel secure. If we sweep and go 0-2 in Hoover, I think the inconsistency at the end of the year looks bad and we don't get a seed.

EDIT: I left off the possibility of sweeping Vandy.

Why we will get a regional host: consistently ranked in the top 5 in attendance every year... Also, we will bid higher than pretty much anyone outside of LSU... Not to mention, over 40 wins, a top 12 RPI...

n0oB question - since only the Top 8 are ranked for National Seed purposes, what happens if {gasp} one of them is upset in their Regional? How do they determine who gets the open home advantage in the Super Regionals?
