Sorenson: Off The Top Of My Head

Columns

Hapnin’ StitchHeads? Welcome to my second edition of the OTTOMH blatherfest. Hope you have enjoyed the first full week of college baseball for 2017. And if you haven’t liked it because your team has also puttered to a stall, remember, we still have 14 more weekends of baseball before the NCAA Selection Show. So no need to start freaking out yet.

FIVE THINGS ABOUT THE LAST SEVEN DAYS
Things that jumped off the page to me in college baseball.

– Coastal Carolina is awkwardly trying to get used to that target on its back.
As you saw, CCU is ranked pretty high in the preseason polls. Was it because of the Chants being the defending national champions, more than anything else? Possibly so. But also due to the fact there is a ton of pitching returning to the rotation and bullpen. But I think opening weekend showed that they may have a bigger hill to climb after losing consecutive games to Western Carolina, James Madison and St. John’s.
