Boy, it really shines a spotlight on the focus of most SEC schools. The same week that the SEC places 8 teams in the AP top 25, we get 2 teams in this basketball poll. And when baseball gets started, the poll will more closely resemble the football poll. LSU wasn't the only school in the conferen...

He does have a lot to learn when it comes to reading pitchers, but I don't think that he is very quick off of the line. He's fast, but takes a couple of steps to get up to speed. He takes a long stride, which allows him to cover a lot of ground in the outfield. The two times that he's been thrown...
