    Dawgs move up in latest D1 poll...

    Ranked #3 behind our friends UCLA and Oregon State.

    We are one more foot on a Mangum drive to left against Florida and a freakish game against UT from being the solid #1 team in the nation. No matter though...

    After Tuesday's game against Texas Southern (Ugh..) the next 10 games will decide whether we're a Top 8 seed or simply a host.

    “I’m not going to take anything off the table at this point in time ... but I will tell you this,” Cohen began, “this person is going to have serious baseball experience as a head coach. This person is going to have made trips to Omaha, Nebraska. This person is going to have expertise in an area of the game and in all facets of the game. And this person is going to make our fan base very happy.” - Intense Bastard, April 5, 2018.

    I think we win two of the next three series.

    Eh, not worried at all about UCLA and OSU for the moment. Being #1 would be cool and all but our competition right now is limited to 13 teams in the SEC. The only place we will ever see UCLA or OSU is omaha.

    Biggest key is to remain a national seed type team so we are guaranteed to play at home in the regionals up until Omaha. So as long as we stay a Top 8 seed come tournament time I'm happy.

    Only one that matters is the final poll after Omaha..... for you Ole Miss lurkers that is where the NCAA College World Series is held.

    Hosting matters, therefore pre-Omaha polls matter if they influence the decision-makers seeding.

    Nothing could be further from the truth. Perception is the greatest obstacle/attribute you have when it comes to recruiting. Nowhere is perception more embodied more than in the polls. Recruiting/Polls/Hosting.. they all go hand in hand.

    Plus the fact that whether it be baseball or basketball, once the NCAA tournament starts polls become totally irrelevant.

    Well, to that point, the final poll does not matter because a tournament decides who takes the hardware. The final poll just sorts out all of the also rans. National seeding matters because playing on your own diamond matters and because seeding is influenced by polls they matter but only about the last month of the regular season.

    I thought Hookers and Cash go hand in hand with recruiting? Or is that just at certain schools?

    We need to go 6-6 in the next 4 series (@UPIG, JAWJA, @ A & M, and @ Ole Miss) and then win at least 2 against USC - this is a very tall order, but will get us to 18-12/19-11 which should keep us in the SEC overall race until the last day of the season and make us a National Seed.
