Don't know much about this poll, other than it seems consistently skewed when it comes to the bottom ten teams in the poll. Is there something they know about that all the other polls don't. Laughed about Oregon above OSU.

They don't seem to have much love for West Coast baseball. With the exception of Arizona State, the first WC team doesn't show up until you get to #15 (Irvine) and they're not even in Kendall's top 25.

Yeah the Oregon - Oregon State is baffling...both teams have played each other and LBSU, Beavers beat the Ducks and went 2-1 against LBSU versus UO's 1-2.

Really love Bethune Cookman at 10-12, Louisiana Lafayette at 9-10 and Va Tech at 12-10 receiving a vote(s). Says about all you need to know about this poll.

Irvine is a total crapshoot as to what kind of team they are right now. They've been beating up on really easy competition. Some polls are giving them the benefit of the doubt and placing them in the rankings. I think Kendall's on a wait and see pattern until they actually play somebody. Unfortunately, Irvine doesn't have many quality opponents this year.

That's exactly my theory on Irvine, and I also have no problem at all with people taking a leap of faith on the Anteaters. Pitching and offense both have been solid, just curious to see what this team does when it faces a solid club.
