Really, can we move this thing to Hoover?
Or at least Atlanta?
I know the people of Omaha love their baseball but it seems like a long way to go to decide who the best team in the SEC is.
And isn’t that what we’re doing?
Florida and Vanderbilt play Friday and the Gators will play for it all if they win the sixth meeting between the teams. If Vandy wins Friday and Saturday, the Dores will play for a national title. And a pretty good bet it will be against South Carolina, which has yet to lose in Omaha.
On the surface, it would appear that the SEC is the best conference in baseball and I’m not questioning that. But in reality, the SEC was top heavy this season with three of the best teams in baseball.
The league is 12-4 since the regionals ended. All four losses have been to SEC teams. That’s pretty impressive.
One thing I do believe — even though the SEC was dwarfed by the Big Three, it’s a great league and playing against tough competition every week helped these three teams prepare for the post-season.
And if we get the All-SEC final we expect, we will be assured of a third straight national champion in baseball from the conference.
