Question Collegiate Basebell Top 40 Pre-Season Poll
http://baseballnews.com/collegiate-baseb...-12-19-17/

I don't put a ton of stock in this poll, but they do have 2 SBC teams in the top 20. I think the Chants should be in here as well.

Rank Team (2017 Final Record) Points
1. Florida (52-19) 497
2. Oregon St. (56-6) 494
3. Arkansas (45-19) 493
4. Florida St. (46-23) 489
5. Texas Tech. (45-17) 484
6. Vanderbilt (36-25-1) 482
7. North Carolina (49-14) 479
8. Kentucky (43-23) 477
9. Texas Christian (50-18) 475
10. Louisiana St. (52-20) 471
11. Dallas Baptist (42-21) 470
12. Cal. St. Fullerton (39-24) 469
13. Mississippi St. (40-27) 465
14. UCLA (30-27) 463
15. Clemson (42-21) 460
16. Virginia (43-16) 459
17. South Alabama (40-21) 456
18. Louisiana-Lafayette (35-21-1) 454
19. South Carolina (35-25) 450
20. Miami, Fla. (32-27) 448
21. Louisville (53-12) 446
22. Missouri St. (43-20) 443
23. N.C. State (36-25) 440
24. Stanford (42-16) 437
25. Southern Mississippi (50-16) 435
26. Texas (39-24) 432
27. Oklahoma St. (30-27) 429
28. Winthrop (34-24) 426
29. Georgia Tech. (27-28) 423
30. Houston (42-21) 420
31. San Diego (35-18-1) 417
32. Sam Houston St. (44-23) 414
33. Texas A&M (41-23) 412
34. Kent St. (37-18) 410
35. Auburn (37-26) 407
36. Arizona (38-21) 403
37. Stetson (27-29) 401
38. Mississippi (32-25) 398
39. Nebraska (35-22-1) 394
40. Michigan (42-17) 391

RE: Collegiate Basebell Top 40 Pre-Season Poll
Cajuns play #6, #8, #10 (twice), #13, #17 (3X), #25 (twice) and #26 (3X)

The series with South Alabama is a NON CONFERENCE series since we do not play them in the league this year.

In typical Tony Robichaux fashion, he quipped. "The games will help our RPI. We have to make sure it doesn't turn into RIP."

Whew, you guys have a tough schedule. Either way, win or lose, the tough schedule will help the Cajuns RPI.

Troy has:

#4 Florida State (three-game series)
#13 Mississippi State
#17 South Alabama (three-game series)
#18 Louisiana (three-game series)
#35 Auburn (twice)

We also play Alabama, but they aren't ranked this season.

We also have that pesky Southeastern Louisiana twice that always seems to have our number.

Should also note that Coastal was the first team not listed, or I guess what would be #41.

Nothing wrong with yours, either.

What's crazy is, we also have midweek games against teams like McNeese, Southeastern La. and Louisiana Tech twice each.

The only non conference games we have against a team with a losing record last year are a pair with Tulane. And, they're going to be good, too.

AState plays 14 games this year against teams inside the top 41 in this poll. Probably the toughest schedule we've had in a while.

They won the NC a couple years ago, so believe they should always be in the top #10.

Last year they learned what it was like to play in a baseball conference.

04-cheers and they didn't win that either. 05-mafia

I'm not sure Coastal's failure to be ranked makes it a joke. You guys missed the NCAA Tourney last year, and have lost some players, especially in the pitching staff. It's not completely crazy that you're not ranked currently.

Now, if you are saying "this poll is a joke because its run by Collegiate Baseball" that's another story entirely. Collegiate Baseball has a weird history of ranking teams 10-12 spots different from the other baseball polls.

They didn't win when it counted the most. That would be us that did that.

Buckle up, buddy. The SBC is undervalued as a whole and the old guard gets most of the attention. Most of the time, deservedly so. Evidently, even with a NC this is still the case.

Maybe if we finish second in the tournament again this year, we'll make the list in '19!

Have you guys recovered from the Gut Punch that was the tournament championship game this past season yet?

I mean, I'm not even a Georgia Southern fan and that thing was brutal.

Yeah, it was a tough way to lose, but you could argue that we were not "supposed" to make it that far. The rain was the biggest bummer. And being an Atlanta sports fan, I'm equipped to deal with these things. 2017 was a sports disaster for me...

We were 3-1 against the Cajuns last year.

But with everything we lost at pitcher I understand why we wouldn't be the favorites.

I'm sorry, since you mention both in your post, are you wanting to talk about our national championship year before last or do you want to talk about last year, our first year we "learned to play in a baseball conference" where we went through the league with a 20-7-1 record, won the series against your team on your home field, and won the conference championship in our inaugural year?

Yea....yea....Coastal was reeeeeally shell shocked coming into this "baseball league."
