AAC baseball preview for 2018
Hard to believe that baseball season will be starting soon....

Baseball America preview of the AAC

FWIW, UCF ranked #22nd. The conference has a big opportunity sitting in front of itself this year with potentially 4 or 5 teams having the ability to be ranked at one point or another...

EDIT: Officially speaking, Houston is ranked #24....

https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/baseball/d1

DOUBLE EDIT: USF also receiving top 25 votes.

Seven AAC teams in the top 100 in RPI.

SUMMATION: We got a damn good Baseball conference, folks. Lots of depth too. Something fun to talk about once March Madness ends.

First preview (of the dozen or so) I've seen that didn't have Houston winning the AAC.

Houston is a great team. If Wichita can get back we can have 4 or 5 ranked teams this year.

We have some unknowns. A lot of freshmen & sophomores that were beginning to break out at the end of last season, but will really need to take it to another level if we're going to be a team that can threaten to make a run. Guys like Lockhart, Triolo, Bielamowicz, Padgett.

We lost our #2 starter (Ullom) to a season ending injury, so that sucks. Joe Davis is coming off an injury as well.

I'm interested to see how ECU bounces back.

I was surprised by this. Somebody was sleeping on Houston.

Look at it like this, the beat downs should be epic and will move the change at the top right along. Dare I say accelerate it.

This conference is absurdly loaded for baseball. Is there a team who couldn't make the ncaa's over the next year or two? Everyone seems a threat and solid programs. Kids will want to play in that kind of a conference.

Beating a dead horse but I wish Tulsa would bring back baseball.

UC needs some work but I think they have found a coach that can get them to win consistently. UC has shown even in the past couple of years they have the talent to beat top level and highly ranked teams.
