Might have something to do with there being no geographical advantage afforded in BB regarding the weather. Being an indoor sport, winter/bad weather doesn't impact BB, like it does outdoor sports. Given that the SEC dominates football, baseball, track & field, for instance (Georgia just won the NCAA outdoor T&F title...dethroning THREE-time defending champion Florida, who had to fight off the likes of Arkansas, LSU, and South Carolina, in particular, to win those 3 straight titles).

    Back to the point, I wonder if the SEC enjoys a weather-related advantage that not only allows more, uninterrupted training/practice, but just attracts more athletes who want to be in a more comfortable climate year round. Just a thought. I mean, come on, you're a great high school athlete being recruited by Iowa and Florida...where would you go?
    Iowa reporting in. We had blizzards in April. Pro baseball in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin was screwed for the early part of the season, which is mid to late season for college baseball. The only conferences that should realistically lead in baseball every year are the SEC, C-USA, the Sun Belt, and some of the ACC and some of the Big 12. The first 3 still should be on top in college baseball pretty much always, because way up here, in February, when college baseball starts, we are still dealing with subzero low temperatures at times, with typical highs below freezing.

    Out of those three, obviously the SEC has the most resources and support, and therefore success. C-USA needs to up our game, because this is an area where we can really compete, along with basketball.

    Agreed. Given our geographical location, Tech, and everyone in CUSA, should be better in baseball. Helps to have a good coach though...
