No, but I see LSU plays South Carolina, Florida and Kentucky out of the East (1/2/3 last season). They also have to play 4 of the 6 West schools on the road. ...

Under the current scheduling format, Alabama can't avoid the West. That said, LSU and Arkansas finished 1/2 in the West last season and the scheduling Gods gave Bama both of those series at home....

Last year, the SEC East finished - 1. South Carolina, 2. Florida, 3. Kentucky. This year, Alabama baseball doesn't play South Carolina, Florida or Kentucky.
Last year, the bottom 4 teams in the conference were 9. Georgia, 10. Auburn, 11. Alabama and 12 Tennessee. This year, Alabama baseball star...

How is that a good answer? When Ole Miss swept a bad TCU team (8-11 with an RPI of 120), Ole Miss jumped from 13 to 8, ahead of LSU who went 3-0 that week. LSU is still stuck behind Ole Miss because now the rule is a winning team doesn't get jumped....

That is an easy question.
Didn't Foster get yanked for Arby Fields after Foster misplayed a fly ball that almost cost us in game 3 at South Carolina last year? Mainieri will never forget that....

I will say if Ole Miss is able to match their improvement from this year (2-10 to 6-6), they could get to 10-2 which would be good for 3rd or 4th in the West. ...
