Some of that is well deserved. Unlike football, there is actually a tournament that can be used to level-set each year.

Teams in the D1 Baseball preseason top 25

SEC: 9
ACC: 7
Big 12: 5
Pac 12: 2
AAC: 1
Big 10: 0

Teams in the Field of 64 in 2019:

SEC: 10
ACC: 8
Big 12: 5
Pac 12: 5
Big 10: 5
AAC: 3
Other: 28

While, yes, you can say that the anointed teams will get more teams in over other conferences with similar records...

Percentage of teams that made the Field of 16:

SEC: 6 - 60%
ACC: 4 - 50%
Big 12: 2 - 40%
Pac 12: 2 - 40%
AAC: 1 - 33%
Big 10: 1 - 20%
Other: 0 - 0%

Percentage of those teams that made the Field of 8:

Big 10: 1 - 100%
SEC: 4 - 67%
ACC: 2 - 50%
Big 12: 1 - 50%
AAC: 0 - 0%
Other: 0 - 0%

So, if you look at the last tournament, you could argue that maaaybe the AAC should have 2 teams in, since we went from 3 down to 1 when the field went from 64 to 16. 25 is closer to 16 than 64, so rounding isn't really on our side.

If anything, the Big 10 should probably have a team on this list.

As little research as they do, it's probably best that they go back two years ago to make their rankings.

This may be the deepest pitching staff we’ve had. If Gavin Williams can stay healthy with his arm, watch out. And if COVID doesn’t rain on our parade, we could be in for a really special season.

Don't hate. UH is probably the fanbase that cares the most about baseball in this conference along with ECU & maybe Tulane as well. ECU will be back this year in football.

Absolutely no hate bud! My point was that ECU fans can come on and be proud to lead this conference in one of the 3 "big" sports. Believe me, as a Coog fan, I know what it's like to drip losses in the other two sports for long periods of time. 04-cheers
