Default Re: Can we still get a top 8 seed?

McDonald and Perno were both saying on ESPN the other night that the winner of the Carolina/Vandy series has the inside track to a national seed. Other "experts" are saying the same thing. We have a very good shot. UF has one locked up. Sounds like it's between us, Vandy and Ole Miss (who we also beat head to head) for the other one. Everyone thinks LSU's rpi is too low for them to be strongly considered. A good showing in Hoover would only help us though.

Default Re: Can we still get a top 8 seed?

When I started this thread last week, I was unsure of what we needed to do to lockdown a top 8 seed. One of the obvious obstacle's was to win our mid week game, then win the series at Vandy..... and we did!

So the only question now, is how many games do we have to win in Hoover to get that elusive top 8 seed?

In our Bracket, we play the winner of Miss St and Georgia. For obvious reasons, I would like to get another piece of UGA..... but a win over Miss St would help our RPI more, so for that reason, I am pulling for Miss St. Then we most likely would play Florida (assuming they will beat the winner of Bama/Ken).

Would POTENTIALLY beating MISS ST and Florida be enough to lock up a #8 seed?

What do YOU think we need to lock up that #8 seed?

I think it all depends on how Holbrook and Meyers play our staff this coming week. Save arms or all in ?

I think it's dependent on 2 things. We must get at least 2 wins, and we must do better than Ole Miss. Vandy has an outside shot if they go deep/win the tourney and Ole Miss and USC tanks. But if we do those 2 things^ I think we're in.

Knowing how these guys coach I think they'll be all in. Monty should be ready to go and start on Wednes (although I'd like to see Scott). As much as the coaches downplay winning enough to get the national seed, they know what's at stake and I think we'll see a team that really wants it this year, as opposed to other years.

IMO it's actually a good idea to tank the SEC tourney, unless you're on the bubble for positioning in the tourney like we are. It most cases it serves to humbles your team, refocus them, and rest them up for the NCAA tourney.

Default Re: Can we still get a top 8 seed?

Think you guys are spot on.......

The way I see it, a win against Miss St/ UGA, and a win against Florida (Potentially), would be enough. I also am on board with the "All In" approach. From where I sit, after last years debacle in Chapel Hill. With the pitching staff we have, I will take my chances and try like hell to lock up that #8 seed.

Last week, I wasn't sure if we had what it took. Winning a series in Nashville has to provide our team with some confidence, it certainly has boosted mine!

Hoping we can get the "All In" approach to stick for the entire post season!

Be prepared for dissapointment because it can happen again. The ncaa has taken the word "regional" seriously for a few years now.

As for the final national seed race between Ole Miss and South Carolina, to say it was an easy decision is very much an understatement. After all, South Carolina definitely has a compelling case. For starters, the Gamecocks won the season series against the Rebels, albeit at home in a very even series. Meanwhile, the Gamecocks have A) more wins against RPI Top 25 teams and B) a 15-9 record vs. RPI Top 50, as opposed to 14-11 mark for the Rebels. However, the Rebels have a better road mark and finished higher in the SEC standings, winning the SEC West Division and earning the No. 2 seed in this week's conference tournament. Whomever performs better in Hoover, Ala., likely gets a national seed. The other? It will need Indiana or ULL to slip up.

Besides South Carolina, college baseball fans also should watch for Oklahoma State, Cal Poly and TCU. The Cowboys are very much a national seed type of team if they can perform well in the Big 12 tournament and get that RPI in the top 18, while TCU possesses a good resume and Cal Poly continues to rise in the RPI and is the West Coast's elite team outside of Oregon State and Washington. Some things would really have to go their way for teams like Vanderbilt, Rice and Louisville to end up as top eight national seeds.

They can give 3 SEC teams national seeds. The national media talked about it last Thursday night on ESPNU. They said they wouldn't be surprised if Ole Miss, Florida and either SC/Vandy would get national seed. Now that SC beat Vandy, we have the road to get there.

Tommy Moody on 107.5 this morning said that he thinks 2 games in Hoover should get it done BUT they should really try to win more than 2.

Why not? The selection committee has shown that they LOVE trying to create drama.

If we win three games in Hoover I think we get a Super. Two games and it'll be close. One game and doubtful.

Clemson has to be concerned about getting in the field of 64 before being worried about facing us again.

We don't have to win the tournament to be one, although I'm cool if we do win it!
