We're gonna get freaking smoked come conference play... Maybe, MAYBE ETSU finishes 5th. FGCU is really good. It's just a matter of time for them before football is added and they're moving onto bigger and better things.

FGCU is looking really good, but this conference will have at least 1 at large bid. Plus, FGCU has not done well in the Conference Tournament in the past.

I think it will as long as teams keep winning OOC games. The ETSU loss at Tennessee yesterday was really bad. They pitched a freshman.

They pitched three, and Eichler pitched well. That's the whole purpose of midweek games; ETSU and UT threw 13 pitchers between them. A loss in a one-off Tuesday game to Tennessee is not going to destroy our RPI and should not be used to weigh the team's chances for the year.

The freshman I would be concerned about is Griffin Kreig, who got hammered by Marist yesterday and is sporting an ERA north of 8. I wouldn't be shocked to see him supplanted by Logan Rice by mid-March. Regardless, ETSU should be okay in league play. They won't be great, but they'll make the tournament and should win a couple of games.

Well we learned a couple things this week... FL Gulf Coast is mostly a fraud. They are a solid team, but not a Top 50 team. Maybe not Top 100.

I'll try to update the main post every Monday when the new polls come out. Updated now as of March 4th.

- Florida Gulf Coast managed to stay ranked. I can't believe that, as they looked pretty average this week against some low end competition.

- North Florida made a big move up this week.

- Mercer has a monster test on Tuesday @ Georgia Tech.

That would be great if you would do that. Look forward to seeing how rankings and rpi evolve over the season.

No offense but two one run losses hardly say "fraud" to me. FAU is 6-5 with losses to Miami (FL), Alabama, NC State and Coastal Carolina. Manhattan is terrible, but no offense everyone can lose a game by a single run. Just for reference, Mercer was shut out at home by Alabama State and while Alabama State has a winning record...look who they have played. #2 Arkansas lost to Pacific (4-6) by a run, are they a fraud? (5-7) San Francisco beat #11 Arizona...is Arizona a fraud? I am just saying losing a one run game is hardly enough for "fraud" status...if they continually lose game after game...then maybe. Don't let a game here and there blur the vision especially in baseball.
