That is not the way it always works. The seeding really only counts when it comes to being a number 1 seed. Say you have to opposing regionals and by some chance the number 2 seed in one and the number 3 seed in another both win their regionals then the number 2 seed does not automatically get the host. It all boils down to before the post season even starts each school submits bids should a scenario like this happen and then the NCAA looks at who had the higher bid and who has the more appropriate facility and makes a decision from there.

Well, since Top 8 is looking less likely...the hell with RPI, I hope Clemson gets boat raced by BC today and left out the tourney.

Tell yeah, beating Vandy would really help, but if Ole Miss wins again today, they might end of getting it over us.. I know we beat them 2 out of 3, but they would end up being 20-10, and the West Division champs...

It would be nice to see LSU, Miss State and Ole Miss lose today... The higher we are as a seed in the SEC-T helps us.

Your bid is the amount of money you can promise the NCAA if you host. That is why you bid on Regionals/Supers. The NCAA is in the business to make $$, first and foremost, on post season play.

Re your last statement...that is why you have seen smaller schools with great records be a 1 seed on the road and the host be a 2 seed.

Yes, I know that each Regional is seeded 1-4 within itself. However, just because the Regionals are seeded within themselves 1-4 DOES NOT mean that there are 16 Top seeds. There are only 8 National Seeds. There is no seeding 9-16 as you stated earlier, and your statement above does not change that there are no 9-16 seeds.

Ole Miss losing today helps...

It is probably going to come down to what happens in Hoover... Right now, if the season ended today, I think we would get the #8 seed... Problem is, it's not... What helps us is we are 4-2 vs Ole Miss and Vandy, winning both series.. LSU's RPI may get to up to 14-15, but probably not good enough to get a national seed.

I think the SEC gets 2 spots.. Florida will get one, USC is the front runner to get the 2nd one...

Yep... If we lost today, there was no chance of USC getting a national seed... Now, it looks like they have a good chance at getting one...
