| Tiger Rant|| National Seeds Setting Up Nicely for LSU - RockChalkTiger on 6/1/14 at 1:20 am|
Of the national seeds on our side of the CWS bracket:
#1 Oregon St. is getting shelled by Irvine--could be Okie St or Cal-Irvine
#4 Indiana/Vandy looks to be the toughest (looked easiest when the brackets were announced!)
#5 FSU is eliminated (prob Louisville now)
#8 LSU looking unstoppable

Has anyone (Alleva) pitched this? Considering that we're bascially two conferences now with a scheduling agreement and a play-off between the champions, why don't we only count divisional games for the division champion? I mean, we don't count the non-conference games against other "Big Four" school...

Just realized Bama has unranked Mizzou and unranked Tenn. while LSU has Top 5 FL & Top 5 SC from the East. So (and I seriously doubt either of these will happen) LSU could lose to SC and beat Bama and Bama would win the West.
Is it too late to put the old Big-12 back together?...

Right now the top 8 in the RPI has two teams each from the "power conferences" (SEC, Big-12, ACC, PAC-12) if things stay close to where they are now, it might be hard for the committee to avoid doling things out on an equitable basis, just to keep everyone happy. And the committee's Big-12 love shou...

| Conference Expansion|| New Big East/West - RockChalkTiger on 11/16/11 at 9:03 am|
BYU and Boise to join Houston and SMU in the "Western Division." I guess it's UConn, Rutgers, L'ville, Cincy, USF and UCF in the East and two more teams to be named later (Air Force won't be one of them) in the West. Going with the "regional pairs/rivals," theme, CSU and Wyoming make sense.
