Stock Report: Friday Morning Postseason Projections & AnalysisStock Report
Here’s a quick and dirty look at how Wednesday’s college baseball action affected the races for top-eight seeds, hosting spots and at-large bids. Our updated projections, through Thursday:
Top-Eight National Seeds
SECURE TEAMS: UCLA, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, Georgia, Arkansas
ON THE BUBBLE (IN): Louisville, Texas Tech, Georgia Tech
ON THE BUBBLE (OUT): East Carolina, Oklahoma State
No change from Thursday morning’s projection.
Louisville went 0-2 at the ACC tournament and dropped to No. 9 in the RPI, so we’re moving the Cardinals from the “secure” category to “bubble-in”, but we still believe they are very likely to land a top-eight seed based on their ACC regular-season title and their 17-11 record against the top 50. The same goes for Texas Tech, which fell into the losers’ bracket at the Big 12 tourney with a defeat against West Virginia and slipped a spot to No. 10 in the RPI, but can still hang its hat on its Big 12 regular-season crown. Plus the Red Raiders are still alive in the conference tourney.
