A little surprised Troy was picked 7th overall considering we get back almost all of our starting lineup, including one of the best pitchers in the Sun Belt in Andrew Crane. Plus a few of the players were All-Sun Belt.

This is coaches voting, so I would be surprised as well since you were about .500 last year. Maybe others are in a similar situation with returners.

Should be an interesting season for Troy... will probably be one of the toughest schedules in the country.

On top of the SBC schedule, which is always an RPI boost... we play #5 Florida State (three-game series), #15 Mississippi State, Auburn (twice), Alabama (once), Tennessee Tech (who finished 41-21 last season), along with the typically good-but-not-great teams like UAB, Jacksonville State, Samford, and Alabama State.

We're 8th, which is probably fair. I do think we have more potential than usual this year though. All comes down to whether or not we can figure the pitching situation out.

Take a look at the Cajuns schedule this year. I think I heard Coach Robichaux reference RPI, or RIP?

That is certainly a tough schedule.

After looking at everyone's schedules, I'd say the Top 5 toughest schedules in no particular order are:

Louisiana
South Alabama
Troy
Coastal Carolina
Texas-Arlington

I think Troy is a team to watch out for this year. Their pitching will keep them in almost every game and I expect their offense to improve. If their offense takes a step forward, they will be a contender this year.

UTA second in the West? The this year has gone for our sports programs, I'd buy second to last before I'd go that high.
