Your title is wrong. The D1 Baseball poll came out already. The post is about the Baseball America poll but the title is about the D1 Baseball poll.

Who is? This LSU team? Have you’ve seen the roster my guys? These national baseball media outlets don’t just all rank a team #1 if they’re overrated

Hype. Nothing but massive preseason hype. Nice recognition, however, bring home the trophies.
