    I'll guarantee you they don't. As good as LSU is playing right now, Manieri knows what UL would do to his ball club in a super regional either here or there. That's why he said what he did the other day. He was politicking already to get as far away from UL as possible. His hope is that LSU & UL end up with their own national seeds & some how another team knocks us out before Omaha. He knows his guys can hang with anybody else in the country playing conventional baseball. But he realizes how bad that @$$ whipping would have been without the rain. his team went into a little funk after that. He'd be squarely on the hot seat if that game had gone nine innings & we wouldn't have their RPI to help us. Because that whole team would have had a complete collapse in confidence.

    That's wrong. The NCAA released the current official as of last night and we're behind Oregon St still. It's posted above

    Just enough incorrect game results to affect some of the rankings.

But it made me think, as far as perception goes, is there any way that the showing the softball team has had this year could have a small amount of influence if anything comes down to perception?

    I know the SB-C was a pretty decent league this season, but again, we are talking perception here. And the perception is that the SB-C is a nothing conference (which, if you judge by administration tems, it absolutely is). But having our Ragin Cajun ladies on ESPN two days in a row, listening to the mediots talk up our P5 opponent, and our team just cruching their faces, could there be a little help there as far as perception of UL?

    "This baseball team has a great record and all, but they play in the Sun Belt"

    "Well, I heard someone say that about their softball team too, and I just watched them SPANK a mighty Arizona team. Maybe this baseball team has the same kind of potential"

    I don't know. I'm just kind of thinking that if it comes down to it, any sliver of good could help us secure an "on the bubble" national seed. And it definitely cannot hurt.

    Way to go ladies! And let's go guys, leave no doubt today. Bring home the title!!

    GEAUX CAJUNS!!!!!!!
    I understand we are talking perception, but the baseball selection committee normally (my opinion) has knowledgeable baseball people serving on the committee. The Sun Belt has been a very strong baseball conference for a number of years, and people around the country know this. As an example, in 2009, the SBC was the 7th rated conference according to the rpi. In 2010 and 2011, it was #6, it dropped to #16 in 2012, flew back up to #5 last year, and is #11 this year. FIU's and FAU's departures probably have quite a bit to do with the drop this season, but the conference, I would think, should still be viewed in a positive light by this committee.

    In the above quote, I was talking about the SB-C being a decent league this year in softball. The baseball league was atrocious this year, and that's all that matters to the committee THIS YEAR. That, along with the perception of any of the non-P5 leagues, works against us. All of that said, my point was that the ladies proving that mid-majors can be successful in the postseason, specifically THIS (UL) mid-major, MAY help just a little.

    At this point, I don't think it matters. All signs point to UL receiving a national seed regardless of today's outcome. But I would love for our guys to leave no doubt.

    Geaux Cajuns!!!

    You would think, but I wouldn't count on it.

    What about LSU? Are they really a win away from a national seed?

    I think a win over Florida nets LSU a national seed. They would likely be Top 8 in RPI ... have the #2 conference record in the SEC ... won 2/3 from Ole Miss (one of the competitors for a national seed) ... and would only be the second national seed from the #1 RPI Conference.

    Yes, LSU has some warts on their resume. Particularly NC RPI and NC SOS, as well as record vs. RPI Top 25 (would be 6-9 w/ win over Florida) ... (LSU's record vs. RPI Top 50 would be 14-11). But so do the other contenders. For example, Rice is 3-6 vs. RPI Top 25 and 9-11 vs. RPI Top 50.

    Following up, if they lose, I am guessing they host, possibly lined up with us. Since they are so hot, not my first choice.

    UL Baseball Re: RPI Watch

    If they lose they ain't so hot. Cajuns have the longest win streak in the country after todays defeat of UT-A. Granted they have been hammering people, but so far Florida has the answer.

    LSU is a definite host.
