While I believe the Sun Belt is down some this year Louisiana is clearly a very good team. It would be very hard to see a team that is top 3 or so in every major poll not get a national seed.

It's all about RPI, not polls.

Yea you right. Well at least our RPI has been going up in the past 3 weeks. It went from 14 to 12, and now 8. Good thing teams that were ahead of us such as Ole Miss,(2-2), South Carolina (2-1), and Cal Poly (2-2) also had losses this week.

And Like GaSoEagle said...politics. The SEC could easily get 11-12 teams in the NCAA this year...despite the fact that more than one of those will have a worse RPI than ASU by the end of the year.

Cajuns could be left out of a National Seed simply because they don't play in the SEC. Its really not fair the political games that come in to play during the NCAA's each year.

I don't know how Louisiana could have had a better season than they have had so far. At 43-7 it is really hard to improve on that. So they have done about everything that they could do so far.

If Louisiana does not get a national seed I would figure it went to some SEC school.

Some experts are saying that only one of ULL and LSU will get a Super Regional this year...so the NCAA can pair them together.

That is what I would worry about with LSU having a very good year. Louisiana deserves it at this point however. Let s say Louisiana finishes 48-8 (5-1 over last 6)--- If a Sun Belt team with that record and a top 8 RPI does not get a national seed probably no Sun Belt team ever will.

They could have had a better record by having a bullpen that isn't struggling so much. We have no true closer that can come in and throw strikes and get outs, lately your stress level goes up when we have to depend on the bullpen to hold on to the lead the offense built.

We've had a couple of injuries which threw the rotation off. But any pitcher in the pen should be able to come out the bullpen and give at least one good inning.

Now if the opposing team gets on a rally, that's one thing, but when its walk after walk, throw a few wild pitches and hit by pitches in there and its very frustrating.

I promise you Coach Robichaux is very concerned with the Post Season coming up and the way the pen has been pitching.

The only teams that really beat the Cajuns by hitting was Alabama game 3, WKU game 1, and TXST game 2. People can bash me all they want, but Robichaux is saying the same thing being an ex-pitcher himself, it's driving him crazy.

I always feel bad for our starters that hold a team down for 7 innings and hangs on to the lead but his pitch count is getting up there, so you go to the bullpen to get the final outs, not just give the other team the game because no one can throw strikes.

They better get it together soon or we are going to have to build big leads to bail the bullpen out which should be the other way around.
