SEC baseball tourney seeds as of today + final weekend SEC series pairings



If the season had ended yesterday the seeds for the SEC tournament would be as follows:

1) Vandy (24-2)
2) LSU (21-6)
3) Arkansas (17-9)
4) S. Carolina (16-10)
5) Ole Miss (14-13, has tie breaker over Miss. St.)
6) Miss St. (14-13)
7) Alabama (13-13)
8) Florida (13-14)
9) Texas A&M (11-15)
10) Auburn (11-16)
11) Kentucky (10-17)
12) Missouri (8-19)

Georgia and Tennessee would not make the tournament.

LSU is assured of being the #2 seed as the West Division champion. Therefore, LSU plays the second game of the day (around 12:30 PM depending on the length of the first game that day) on Wednesday, May 22, and will play the winner of the Tuesday game between the #7 & #10 seeds.

The seeds can change a LOT, of course, based on the results of the games this coming weekend and here are the pairings for the final SEC weekend:

Ole Miss at LSU
Alabama at Vandy
Arkansas at Auburn
Florida at Georgia
Kentucky at Missouri
S. Carolina at Miss. St.
Texas A&M at Tenn.

Edited to include LINK to tournament bracket.

Both of them have pretty tough final games this coming weekend, Bama vs. Vandy and Auburn vs. Arkansas.

Assuming we win the first game. When would we play again? Best I can do is get there either late Thurs or early Fri.

I included a link to the tourney bracket in the OP. You can see for yourself what it looks like. It's a mess.

ETA: The first four games, on Tuesday, are all essentially "play in" games....single elimination. That means those teams will have to pull out all stops to keep playing.

It may mean they all use their #1 pitcher in that game because the four losers go home. And several of them are on the bubble to make the NCAA post season. They need to win and win more than one to make a regional.

It's really not that complicated, especially compared to the recent 10-team bracket. You have the four "play-in" games on Tuesday, and then the 8 team tournament starts Wednesday. Pretty simple really.

But it's not that simple. One or two teams could have Friday open and not play at all that day under certain circumstances.

For example, if LSU wins its first two games (on Wednesday and Thursday), it doesn't play on Friday and won't play again until noon on Saturday.

It's been that way forever, even when it was an 8 team tournament (which again, it basically is this year starting on Wednesday). If you won on Wednesday and Thursday you got a bye til Saturday and only two loser's bracket games were played by Friday. Been that way for years and years.

Yeah the two undefeated teams in the old "bracket play" were always off on Friday and had to lose twice Saturday.

Now instead of two 4 team brackets you basically have a normal 8 team double elimination...but the last two undefeated teams still get Friday off and advance to the semifinal. Instead of playing each other once it reaches that point they each face a team with a loss.

And it goes back to single elimination on Saturday.

Yea the only real difference once you get to Wednesday this year from the old 8-team tournament is that the teams coming out of the loser's bracket only have to beat the undefeated teams once on Saturday. It used to be that they would have to beat them twice.
