    I Find the Excuses for LSU and the SEC Very Entertaining This Morning

    I've always been one of those that felt that the SEC especially and the Big Five schools in general have a built in RPI advantage especially in baseball and basketball due to thier litany of home games over the season especially in OOC play...

    I know some who felt that UK was slighted when they were not selected for the tournament due to their sub 30 rpi - even though it was a BIASED rpi due to the SEC schedule

    You get these schools out of their comfort zone (i.e. home parks/gyms) and they are JUST LIKE everyone else

    Maybe they should change their slogan from IT JUST MEANS MORE to WE CAN JUST BUY MORE....

    Anyone who thinks otherwise isn't honestly looking at the situation. it's true for basketball, but even more so when you're talking baseball. I've watched a lot of NCAA baseball this spring and you're right, get them out of their comfort zone and they're just like everyone else.

    Smh…

    I think we overachieved to some extent and were about where we are - our arms were shot by the tourney and our offensive woes were quite evident heading into the tourney - we were two arms short and two bats short and had been all year long

    Caught a break with FAU taking the ties - we were really a 3rd or 4th place team in the regular season

    I'll take 21-9 in conference every year and let the chips fall where they may

    But that's not what this thread is about

    There is a plethora of good baseball players who fall through the cracks every year from the big schools. When you add those kids with the juco kids coming up, any college can put together a good team from year to year. That is what makes a program... I do think Kentucky belonged this year. I am the biggest fan for the small school, no point of the RPI if they don't get in. I know they were sub .500 in conference, but they do play in the toughest conference. No, I am not a SEC homer, pull against all of them in almost all situations.

    I like the regional, super regional, final 8 in Omaha set up. I'm sure it can be tweaked to be better. LSUseless fans will grip about anything. Their team over performed this year. All-American 3b and ace pitcher hurt for year, they did great considering. It takes some luck and a lucky bounce here and there for a team to go a long ways. I just want to make it to a regional 2-3 times every 5 years. That should be doable a Tech. If we just recruit along I-20 from East Texas to Jackson, MS for the core group of kids, we should be great. Throw in 1-2 jucos a year, a kid or 2 from Baton Rouge area, Lake Charles/Lafayette, and New Orelans, we should be great. I guess if it were that easy, I should be coach.

    Re: I Find the Excuses for LSU and the SEC Very Entertaining This Morning

    But you missed the point -

    The SEC is no tougher than the Big 10, Big Xii, ACC or Pac 12

    It's a biased rpi

    And MID WEEK games matter as much as weekend games - cause come tourney time - those midweek pitchers are the difference between winning and losing in most instances



    The tourney usually backs this up

    And NO Kentucky still didn't belong

    In the past LSU baseball fans have shown a measure of class....devoid from their football fans, in general. I watched some of their game(s) vs. Oregon State. They got hammered....out-classed! LSU baseball fans usually say as much and just congratulate the other team. I don't read any other school's fan forums, so maybe there is a meltdown going on. But it is unusual.

    I dislike all of the SEC, Big 10, Big Xii, ACC and Pac 12. The entire Power 5 concept and economic grip sucks, is incredibly biased and potentially illegal in many aspects.
    I would love to see the Tulane, Tulsa, Houston, SMU, BYU, La Tech and heck the Service Academies etc's.. of the world joint action sue the threat of or true monopoly that exists.

    Biased or not, at the end of today, the SEC could have eight teams headed to the Super Regionals. Four of those teams would have made it winning on the on the road. If this happens, I think criticism of the SEC and the selection committee will fall on deaf ears.

    Of course, they could wind up with only three in the supers, and in that case ... pile on.

    Very true. For example SEC team Texas A&M played every game leading up to the Frisco Tournament at their home baseball stadium. Then they went to Frisco and got beat by Louisiana Tech. I was there for every game and the officiating was refreshingly unbiased in every game regardless of who was playing whom.

    LSU was over rated, losing to any team by 25 runs in 2 games means you're a very average team. If the ball doesn't hit the pitcher's foot and bounce in the wrong direction, that's a double play and NSU wins. How about Tennessee Tech taking out the SEC champ on their home field!!!!
