Give me 2 teams that you believe AREN'T as good as their ranking/record and 2 teams that you feel ARE better than their ranking/unranked/record.

I feel LSU is better than their record and probably Goergia as well. Those are just teams I see play often because they are in the sec.

Hopefully I can do this without starting a fight among people.

I feel Southern Miss might be slightly overrated. I feel like they wouldn't have that kind of record in pac-10, sec, acc or big12. It's hard to find 2 when you don't see a lot outside your conference but I think I will go with....Troy, I'm not impressed with more than a couple of their wins. I believe there are other teams that are more deserving of top 25.

Anyways, don't want to offend anybody, I just want to get some discussion going in this board! I know I enjoy getting others perspective on a team from somebody other than your teams' fan.

Overrated? RPI of 9 with a SOS of 12 and 3-1 vs. the SEC. Really? I respect your opinion but come on.

Exactly why do you think Southern Miss is overrated? As stated, RPI of 9 (as high as 2 a week ago, SOS of 12 in the nation, and playing in the 3/4 RPI conference. Please explain with facts, not bias.

Overrated... Stanford.

We are 3-1 against the SEC. The SEC is overrated. CUSA is underrated.

Overrated teams: LSU and Alabama

Underrated: UAB, Memphis

Southern Miss, like most teams, would struggle in the SEC East, but would be a contender in the West this year. Teams have slumps and we had one this past week. Memphis is a dangerous team because they can hit and they run well. Troy is a solid team. At this point you could pull losses out of just about anyone's schedule (outside of a few teams) and find some less than stellar losses. But honestly, Southern Miss only has one bad loss, a mid-week loss to UL-Monroe. The other 7 losses were to teams in the rpi Top 100.
Now, if we don't clean up our fielding then we will lose plenty of games this season.

You beat Ole Miss twice and Alabama once...all in midweek and that is what you are baseing you ranking off of? Come on. You lost 2 of 3 to Memphis and 2 of 3 to Troy. I guarantee you there are 30 teams who could win the series that Southern Miss won. UCF? Misourri St? Those are not exactly marquee series wins. You lost your biggest series of the year at Troy and you have beat a bad SEC team twice. Sorry but I am not that impressed. Elite programs do not lose to Memphis 2 of 3.

As for FSU being overrated: I just do not think they have any pitching at all.



The same Troy team that is #27 in the nation? They're legit. Like to see whoever your team is play them.


North Carolina lost 2 of 3 to Wake Forest. TCU lost to a team that was 1-22. Clemson lost 2 of 3 to NC State. South Carolina just lost to the Citadel. LSU just lost to 11-22 Northwestern State.

There will be 6-8 teams that will go the entire year without losing a series to a team they shouldn't have lost to. It's college baseball, it happens. It's a long season.

UCF took 2 of 3 from Georgia and has also beaten Florida. UAB beat Alabama. Memphis beat Ole Miss. USM has beaten Ole Miss twice and Alabama. Rice just beat Texas A&M. CUSA is a premier baseball conference. I think your head is stuck so far up the BCS' fourth point of contact that it rubs off on your view of College Baseball. Ole Miss threw the kitchen sink at us last night and still couldn't beat us.
