Couple gems

- 0-0 top 25 record > 4-7 top 25 record
- the idea that we wouldn't win the SEC or PAC is "ridiculous"
- we should get a national seed over Ark/UK because we won 10 more games (all schedules are created equally, apparently)

Our people are just completely unable to view things objectively. Pretty sure I would hate USM if I was a baseball writer.

If we go 1-2 in another regional, it ain't gonna be pretty.


Fans are passionate and want to hear the best for their teams. UK and Stanford fans have been giving them just has much a headache. I remember back in 08 the argument between USM and LSU fans as to who would get to host. The weekly chat for Rivals was spammed with questions between those two to the point they'd have to ask for no more about them.

We aren't unique. Every school has fans who care. Trust me, Kendall got spammed a lot harder last night for his BYU rant than anything else.


On a side note, I do think if we win today, it'll be hard for a team with top 8 RPI and the most wins in the country to not get the host. The committee has had some strange national seeds in the past, so wouldn't be surprised to see us hop in there along with Stanford. We'll see tomorrow. For today, let's get a trophy.

Win and it's done. The program with the most wins (tied with #1 Oregon State with 49) will be a national seed. I remember looking at the win counts for Oregon State and Louisville during the year and was really impressed. Well, we passed Louisville and can catch OSU today. One game at a time Eagles. Find a way today.

The better comparison for us is Louisville. Their SOS is weak.

Both comparisons are good and relevant. 10-3 vs top 50 is great. Better than 11-5 so im glad they both dropped out of top 50 rpi. Beat rice and will be 11-3.

I like the passion of our fans, but when you start saying that it's "ridiculous" that we wouldn't win the SEC or PAC....well, that's when you start getting into looney land.

The fans really need to calm down because it ain't gonna look good if we go 1-2 next week.

We haven't played a weekend set against a team that is as good as half the SEC/Big 12/ACC. We may not have played a single weekend game against a tournament team.

That's not to say we aren't as good as top teams in those conferences. But to get angry at someone who believes we wouldn't win those conferences is, as you said, in looney land. Hell, I don't think we would have

So...if an SEC team goes 1-2 next week, that wouldn't raise the same questions? Jeeeeez

We have bozos in our fanbase just like every school. Most Southern Miss fans are constantly on the defensive because we get overlooked so often (whether it's warranted or not is another discussion).

I cringe when I see some of our fans argue with people on public forums and make us look whiney. Just win and let what happens happen.

Actually hope they host because they'd be our 2 seed in a hypothetical Hattiesburg Regional, which would suck for a number of reasons.

1) They'd probably beat us.
2) We'd hear non-stop all week about we have 10 fans or whatever from their suburban Jackson, white trash fanbase.
3) They'd take over PTP and then ***** about how we didn't give them 99% of the ticket allotment (like they did when they went to Lafayette in 2014)
4) Their alums are in general just a bunch of goobers that think they invented college baseball (yet they've never won a national title).

Give me Auburn or even OM. Hosting State would ruin the experience.

Wow. Almost prophetic.
