D1Baseball Top 25: Ole Miss Vaults To No. 1
Chris - no love? They are #18. Not sure what you were expecting. They are 3-0, but haven't played a ranked team yet and they didn't exactly blow Georgia Southern out of the water. Who should they be ranked above?
Due to COVID, Michigan has suspended all athletics for 2 weeks. Their first game is on 3/5 and they have a 44-game conference only schedule. Should we hold a top-ten spot for them when they've been hit by the virus and playing a reduced schedule, when other teams are playing well?
Mississippi vaults 😅. You vault who you wanna vault, we see what you do, you are expert poll vaulters vaulting for dollars. Experts shmexperts, media hack$ is more accurate a description of you guys.
They "vaulted" because just about everyone in front of them either faltered or played cupcakes. Nothing was handed to Ole Miss. Ole Miss and Arkansas both went 3-0 and beat the #3, #9 and #10 ranked teams in the nation - and their pitching looked better than expected. You beat 3 top-10 teams in any sport and you are going to move up! The previous top 3 teams lost their series, including poor #3 Texas Tech (0-3). Louisville went 3-0, but played....wait for it - "Bellarmine". Come on dude, it's not hard to figure out.
Same argument, every year. So how do you propose they determine merit differently than they do now??? You obviously have a team that you think should be ranked and isn't -- who is it and why do you think they have more merit than the teams that are ranked?
Shhhhhh, lets just hope they continue to be overlooked & stay out of the conversation, like they were in 05, 06, 07, 13, & 17. Those years ended up turning out pretty well. FYI, they are now 5-1 & have outscored their opponents 48-11 so far.
