A lot of issues with this but the biggest by far is Mississippi State not only getting a top 8 seed, but getting by far the easiest regional. VCU is not a 2 seed (139 SOS, swept by UNCW, lost 3/4 to George Washington, lost 3/4 to Liberty, lost 2/3 to Elon) and Campbell (7-7 NC record while playing in the 20th ranked RPI conference).

Don’t get me wrong, three weeks ago, Miss State was a clear top 8 in my eyes. But geez, losing a series at home to Missouri is really bad and then getting pounded in Hoover on top of that. Feels like 9 would have been a good slot for them….and I have no ties to the SEC, just think others were more deserving of the top 8 seed. ND winning the ACC by 4 or 5 games and Stanford winning every series this season including Oregon, Arizona, ASU, Oregon St, and Irvine so 13-6 vs #1 and #2 seeds. Both should have gotten in over Miss St and TTU.

If you are going to attack him for singling out MSU, then address his points. He made 2. You attacked 1. His other point is that they got an easy Regional, which they did. Even Kendall Rodgers pointed that out hours ago. They should be able to win their regional with blindfolds on in the batters box. And chill out on State. They got their butts handed to them in 2018 by a Pac 12 school. Oregon State I believe it was.

If a 12-40 team would have 15,000 butts in seats all days of the regional … they likely would have hosted! SEC needs the money after Covid and Mississippi State diversity athletic department is 30 million in the hole.. so do the math.. I’m sure the NCAA wants to get back to their champagne and caviar luncheons and “non profit” travel to “meetings” and banquets BS! Follow the money .. makes perfect sense! Not about fans at all!

South Carolina should not host as a #2. The lazy Azz committee could have given Charlotte the 16th host site and still sent UNCC to ECU thus creating a true neutral site for ODU to host. That bid was for a Minor League park and not on UNCC campus. This committee just proved they were going through the motions and really clueless as to handle anything beyond getting 4 teams into each bracket. Not surprising!

You guys really need to follow the train of the thread better. The guy claimed a 12-40 team with large attendance figures would get to host.

State’s opponents in the Regional have a better RPI than Ole Miss’s opponents…you’re comparing college baseball name recognition…not, results on the field.

A few years ago, Ole Miss played Tennessee Tech in a Regional at Oxford expecting to breeze to victory. Tech won that regional.

The committee got it right then and got it right today. If State plays like they did in Hoover…they lose. I expect State to play the same quality of baseball that earned them a #7 overall seed…and, advance to a Super Regional.

We’ll see how they play out. I for one did not expect Ole Miss to breeze to victory over Tennessee Tech, that year’s leading HR hitting team, and I certainly don’t expect to breeze to victory against USM, FSU & SEMO.

I do expect MSU to breeze to victory over VCU, Campbell & Samford, as well as Notre Dame if it can survive its regional.

Congrats on a great season and best of luck for a great post-season.

While I would agree that LSU lucked into a regional with one of the weaker #1 seeds and a middling #2 seed, they have not shown an level of consistency this year that would lead me to believe they are capable of winning a regional. They have to win a minimum of 3 games, something they haven’t done since Hill went down. I don’t know where they are going to find enough pitching to pull it off, especially with their hot and cold offense.

Actually, pitching will be in favor of Arkansas. It will be an SEC crew. Not making an excuse. Every 1 seed will have homer crews. The crews will and do crumble to the crowd. DVH knows that and the last team he wanted to face in round 1 is Nebraska. Not because Nebraska is a threat, they’re not. CWS support however will be and it will likely be noticed if the razorbacks make it to Omaha.

My hope is karma. The NCAA decided let’s take a power 5 conference champion and put them against the #1 seed. Now karma can be returned.. Hoping Nebraska locals simply decide to boycott the series. Would be a huge embarrassment to the NCAA if the average attendance this year is under 10k when the current average is 20k.

Sutpens 100

Reply to  baseballin

I don’t think putting more south vs north in northern ballparks is what you need, it’s the opposite. When it comes to RPI a home win counts 0.7 while a road win counts 1.3, so northern teams could collect more RPI points by hitting the road. The differential in road vs home wins was a concession to the Big 10 and other northern conferences. Now you want more?

You would have to get MLB buy-in for your plan b/c it would seriously disrupt the minor league system and/or the careers of all drafted players from both southern and northern schools.

A less drastic fix (if there’s really a problem to be fixed) would be to have conferences require their members to schedule two series every season (on a home & home basis) against teams in comparable conferences. But I don’t think you really want to play 2 SEC series every season.

All that said, if you get MLB buy-in for shifting the college season & draft 30 days later, then I have no problem with that. One of the things we love about baseball in the SEC is the level of the competition. I think most of us would welcome the opportunity to regularly play the Nebraskas and Michigans of the baseball world.

Oddly, you mentioned nothing about the article d1 had on this topic. The biggest proponent to the change IS the SEC. The SEC has a recruiting advantage as well a huge first month advantage when all northern schools have to travel south. That’s a huge cost to the budgets and in that, money used on travel that could be used on facilities. Additionally, the SEC knows it’s a recruiting bonus. The SEC won’t even discuss it because the SEC knows it is in their best interest to not adapt a new policy. In every recent article, one in D1’s 2021 archive they address the MLB draft with a conclusion that it’s not much of an issue and in fact, might benefit the MLB. The fact is, NCAA baseball has, is and will always be ran from the good ole boy, win at any cost southern schools. We all know it. We all accept it and the south schools will never agree to change. If I was a fan of a southern school (any school not just the SEC) I, like you, would say.. hey, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. I’m not a southern, I’m a northern and therefore my perspective is, it’s broke. Regardless, going to enjoy the ride.

Would interfere w/ summer leagues and the season already extends too far beyond the end of the school year as it is. There’s an NCAA rule that states that all athletic seasons are to be completed by the end of the academic calendar, somehow baseball gets around that one, not sure how, but that would make the whole guise of school sponsored athletics even more apparent.

Husker From Omaha

Except that’s no longer true for athletes. They are expected to be on campus virtually all summer to both weight train and participate in team drills. Also, nearly all schools offer summer acceleration classes that many students utilize. Schools only close dorms for the summer. They do however have limited yes but classes.

Your argument has not been credible for years. As for summer leagues, I’m certain even southern coaches would rather develop his players. Yes, summer leagues provide players experience but with fall ball now becoming more prominent, summer leagues are becoming less. Coaches are pushing for a fall schedule allowing all schools to play 6 countable games in the fall thereby providing the possibility of southern teams traveling to northern school venues.

Personally I don’t even begin to understand how any kid truly carries a legit class load and plays in a collegiate level sport, even though there’s a lot of fluff BS courses required to fulfill the credit hours necessary for many degrees, the science heavy creds are very intensive. When I was traveling to some of the summer camps w/ my kid some years back, there were some kids who stayed back on campus to participate in the camps, and a few of them were taking very demanding curriculums. One kid was pre-Med, which seems actually impossible to do while simultaneously keeping up w/ the demands of a D1 program. Like you say, many guys—this kid included—take summer courses or load up in the fall to ease the spring schedule burden. My opinion is that the big time top dog D1 programs—in any sport, really—are an academic farce for the most part. There’s no way any legit degree-pursuant kid is passing muster academically and performing at the high level we are seeing in any of these best in the country SEC programs, or really any of the other top dogs….My opinion, which others will howl at, but that’s their perspectives, which they are entitled to. The SEC is so good because that is what conference participants are focused on, getting the best players and having the best avenues for them to attend their schools, which includes relaxing academic standards if necessary, regardless, it makes for good ball, which is what this discussion is all about. The best leagues are quasi-semi-pros, with a few smarty-pants legitimate >3.0 students in the mix…

Yes, they actually do prefer to let them get outside of the bubble that is their campus; it gives them a chance to see more pitching. The fall ball issue I have heard of before, and I’m not saying it doesn’t have merit, but it’s been floated by a group of northern schools that hasn’t really gained traction from what I’ve seen. It does have its’ downsides too in that a split season schedule is something of a momentum stealer..hard to really get a groove—or a read—on a program that plays two entirely distinct seasons, has the likelihood of a Jekyll and Hyde team situation. The NCAA only permits so many practices and games and if kids are on campus they can’t by rules participate in so many practices after a certain number have been held, that’s why they have “captain practices” that aren’t run by coaches, to skirt the NCAA’s silliness, but in the end it does impact academics if that is what we purport to be…

Plus they wouldn’t be able to provide the reps necessary for their position guys w/ an in house program, too expensive, and most collegiate coaches have relationships w/ summer league skippers to send them there and get a guaranteed number of AB’s, as well as ensuring a degree of protection for their arms to not get overused, although some summer skippers are lunatics and think that summer league titles matter.

Expensive, how? Travel, like that which north schools are required to do in March? Provide reps? Really, you honestly think coaches would prefer to send their boys to someone outside of their control/influence/development? A 6 game fall schedule would gain programs immense learning and reps. Athletes would take July off, report in August (maybe 3 Monday), have 3 weeks of fall scrimmage and then 2 weekends (maybe 3) to play 2 or 3 legit 3 game ooc series.

Husker From Omaha

Your answer is incomplete. Expensive how? Fewer reps? The reps are equalized by gains in formal fall practice, scrimmages and legit games. Your stretch on Jekyll and Hyde has very little standing as teams (ex: Pitt this year) go thru the Jekyll/Hyde all the time. If housing the boys for an extra month is your theory of expense it is misdirected. Those expenses already exist and adjusting for a 25 to 30 member team really is insignificant. Lastly, no person can argue that a college coach would prefer to send first year recruits out over actually bringing them to campus and begin their development early.

Thanks Donald, it’s a good topic. One that imo needs to be thoroughly discussed by the NCAA. As it is now, the expense balance throughout NCAA baseball is off. Northern schools are forced to adjust their budget to accommodate massive travel costs for the first month. I think we agree that affects the game through budgets and facilities minimally.

Good luck to your team as well and if you do come to Omaha. Drive safe, eat well and enjoy the festivities.

By now everyone should know that the committee lives by that Warren Nolan RPI and if a team or conference chooses to not get out of there own sand box and play with the big boys, then they have no one to blame but themselves. When the Big 10 told you to not play out of conference you should have told them to suck it. That is basically what you did in football and the Big 10 backed down. Thus, the National Seeds this year are SEC and Big 12, with AZ (who could not be ignored with their amazing team BA). The Big 12 awaits your return.

Its going to cost Jacksonville the same whether they go to Columbia or Nashville.
