Pollsters impressed by Frogs' sweep

33-1. That was the cumulative score in the Frogs' three-game dismantling of Cal State-Bakersfield this past weekend. 33-1! I realize that Bakersfield isn't quite LSU, but that kind of domination is pretty impressive no matter who you're playing, and is a great way to punctuate a regular season in which the Frogs won 43 games and dropped just 11.

The voters in the various polls apparently agree with me, as the Frogs have moved up in every single one....with the exception of the National Collegiate Baseball Writers, but that's just because it hasn't come out yet. NCBW has been the kindest to TCU all season, so I'm not expecting anything different now. The lowest the Frogs show in any poll this week is #11, which is where Collegiate Baseball ranks them. Baseball America, who at this this blogger consideres to be "the" poll, has the Frogs the highest at #6.

Next up is the MWC Tournament, being held in San Diego this year. TCU's first game will be Wednesday night at 9pm Texas time, and we'll know who their opponent will be come Tuesday night.

Sooooooo.....

For those in the know.

Do we have a chance at hosting the Super?

Lyle Lanley said...

Yeah, still have a chance, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Many are still projecting 2 SEC teams hosting Supers -- Florida and South Carolina. Let's hope SC gets bounced out of the SEC tourney quickly. We're right on the cusp, but need some help...

How does Coastal Carolina have an RPI of 3? Has anyone seen their schedule?

It might be as weak as the Frogs'.

Keep an eye today on Cal State Fullerton's non-conference game with UCLA. The 2 teams ranked below us in the Baseball America poll. Ramifications for a potential national seed...
