    In all honesty, if I'm the Tigers, I'm nervous because you've got the most to lose and the most pressure. I like our chances and I think if we get past McNeese, we beat LSU-BR by a few runs if we play them.
    Will they let our team use their facilities, i.e. locker room,etc. Last time i went there for a regional they didnt and they also refused service at concession stands to cajun fans for some things

    Screw LSU .....this bull ____ makes me even more mad.... LSU didn't deserve to host.... I would be so motivated if I was the Cajuns at the disrespect from the committee I would run up the score on every team we faced... ladies should be motivated to light that park on fire with the long ball!!!!

    SEC Network--> Owned by ESPN
    ESPN --> constantly hypes up SEC schools
    Said SEC Schools --> Climb in polls
    Beating high teams in Polls--> improve SOS and RPI
    High RPI--> Rewarded with National Seeds
    When the SEC teams get national seeds and play in postseason it improves the overall value of the conference. With improved value, ESPN can increase advertising revenue and subscriber revenue.
    $$$ Now do you believe in the SEC Bias from ESPN? $$$
    If you don't then refer yourself to Kentucky (17 loses) receiving a host site instead of Minnesota, Louisiana, or James Madison. (15 loses combined)

    So, given the radical over-emphasis on playing a "good schedule" and your record against the RPI Top 25 (national seeds), what do you think the committee considers stronger?

    2-2 vs. the RPI Top 25
    or
    3-2 vs. the RPI Top 25
    or
    4-6-1 vs. the RPI Top 25

    Well, the 4-6-1 team is Florida State ... recipients of the #4 national seed. The other two are Minnesota and Louisiana respectively (unseeded).

    They are obviously looking hard at SOS rank (in general) ... which is really stupid ... because RPI is SOS. It is redundant!

    Selection committees that do not understand the makeup of the tools upon which they so heavily depend ... Priceless.

    Maybe the Cajuns could host Supers if Georgia can pull it out in Tallahassee...

    This is not a true statement. Polls have nothing to do with SOS or RPI.

    In spite of not hosting, does anyone else feel like the favorite in red stick? I've seen them play a few times this year and while they are obviously a good team, the tigers don't exactly scare you. Frankly, I'd be more scared of us. With Alex pitching well and our offense clicking, we can beat any team in the country. That's not hubris. If you've watched the Cajuns play this year, I'm sure you'll agree.

    They're making all the work you do educating us on the rpi almost pointless for us as a mid-major. If they can find any way to justify (in their minds) keep a Louisiana or a James Madison from hosting in favor of a last place SEC school, they will. Self-fulfilling prophecy much?

    Edit: I know they didn't really give the last place SEC team a host spot.

    We should be the favorite, but get ready for the cheating, crooked umps cranking up the illegal pitch calls on Alex. I hope I'm wrong, but past experience is not good.

    That is straight up absurd. And let's not forget a 29-26 Mizzou team making it in as an at-large as well.

    This whole "selection process" is a clown show.

    Missouri was 29-26.

    Edit: I see you edited from 26-26

    If even half of this bias is seen with the baseball selections, the Cajuns better darn well win the Sunbelt tournament.

    It is ok to be upset but we better focus on McNeese. If we are distracted they can beat us. Focus girls. Can't do anything about the selection committee now. Just prove them wrong.
