In Atlanta, they need a lot more "cheap seats" to attract the SEC football fan who lives in Atlanta but doesn't care enough to pay a premium that would have to be charged at Phillips. Nashville is closer to Lexington. Greater demand from fans who are more passionate about college basketball coupled ...

They only seat about 40k in the GA Dome and even then it is only on Sat and Sun when they open the upper levels. There can't be more than a few thousand extra seats in the Dome over Phillips for the midweek games. ...

LSU defends the goal more aggressively than anyone in the SEC. Home record: 7-1. Road record: 1-6.
Arkansas defends the perimeter more aggressively than anyone in the SEC. Home record: 5-2. Road record: 2-5.
2 of the 3 road wins were South Carolina. ...
| SEC Rant|| re: How much worse would LSU's loss to UL have been if not for rain? - bas456 on 2/26/14 at 2:43 pm|
I think LSU would have lost by -1 runs.
Through 5 innings in last year's regional, LSU had 1 run. They wound up with 5. ULL scored 1 run in the 6th and nothing else the rest of that game.
So I'm thinking it would have finished LSU 5 ULL 4. ...

We will never know because they only played half a game.
For what it's worth, LSU only had 1 run through 5 innings in last year's regional game. They ended that game with more runs than ULL had last night. ...

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....
