    UL Baseball Cajuns sneaking back into the top 25.

    Three new teams enter the Top 25 this week. Michigan State moves in at No. 23, followed by Louisiana and Coastal Carolina. All three have appeared in the Top 25 earlier this season.

    That is an interesting mix of western schools in the top 25. I think UCSB and LB State are in the same conference as CS Fullerton; also, Cal in Stanford out.

    And our soon to be rival Coastal Carolina is right there with us.

    When Coastal joins the SBC the SBC will be a Top 7 RPI Conference. The SBC would have 3 teams in the Top 20 RPI is CCU was in the SBC today.

    UL 15
    CCU 16
    USA 20

    As frustrating as its been at times to watch/listen to, they have done an excellent job in the past 15 games or so. When they dropped out of the polls, they were going to have to earn they way back in. They've certainly done that and deserve to be there again.

    After dropping out earlier this season, UL is back into the Top 25 of two major national college baseball polls.

    Brian mentioned on another thread that's it's still possible but obviously we have a lot of work to do. And he thinks it may come down to how we do versus trams like USA and Southern Miss, e.g. go 3-1 in those games and close out the year strong and we have a shot. But this of course will be extremely difficult to do so it's an outside shot.

    Brian, if I mis-stated anything feel free to correct me

    Yeah, right now our resume vs Top 25 and 50 isnt good enough, I think. Also we have a lot of past opponents just outside the top 50. Getting some of those in could help that

    FYI, we are 3-3 vs Top 50 with wins over

    #18 Rice
    #34 Nw State twice

    our losses are
    #25 TCU
    #11 Texas Tech
    #13 LSU

    But we are 9-5 vs 51-100.

    SHSU has helped as they are 88 and we swept them 3 games
    UNO is at #57
    Winning this week vs McNeese at 59 would be huge
    splitting with #63 Tulane was good, although we should have won the first game
    2 of 3 vs #72 Troy
    2 of 3 vs #62 SLU is big

    We need to keep all of our Top 75's in the top 75. and possibly get some of them into the Top 50.

    well, at this point our top 25 is warranted, earned. Unlike our ranking at begging of season. We are improving and learning how to win with a young team. That being said I still fully expect head scratchers like saturday night every now and then.

    Partial correct, but we never did drop out of the NCBWA poll, so we are in 3 of the polls, and last week were number 22. They have not released this week's poll yet.
