Polls, Projections, Particulars 4/9

 

Here's a quick look at some of the stats, projections, and polls for the Tigers.

POLLS

Auburn is still on the outside looking in on most polls:

NCBWA Poll: "Receiving Votes"

Other ranks of interest (ORofI): UGA (1), LSU (5), Arky (14), Ole Miss (17), FSU (19), Florida (20), South Carolina (28), Alabama (rv)

Collegiate Baseball Poll: Unranked

ORofI: Arkansas (2), LSU (5), UGA (6), Ole Miss (15), Florida (22), GA Southern (26)

Baseball America Poll: Unranked

ORofI: LSU (2), UGA (6), Arkansas (13), Ole Miss (15), Florida (20)

USA TODAY/ESPN Poll: Unranked

ORofI: UGA (3), LSU (4), Arkansas (9), Ole Miss (18), FSU (25), Alabama (rv), South Carolina (rv)

Rivals Top 25: Unranked

ORofI: LSU (2), UGA (6), Arkansas (7), Ole Miss (14), FSU (19), Florida (rv)

 

PROJECTIONS:

Even though the Tigers are getting little to no love in the polls, the seem to be getting a little respect from the two organizations that put out NCAA Projections: Rivals and the College Baseball Blog

College Baseball Blog:

April 2 Projection:

Chapel Hill Regional (3rd Seed)

Teams in Regional: UNC (1), Coastal Carolina (2), Binghamton (4)

April 9 Projection:

Charlottesville Regional (3rd Seed)

Teams in Regional: UVA (1), Coastal Carolina (2), West Virginia (4)

Rivals:

April 1 Projection:

Columbus (OH) Regional (3rd Seed)

Teams in Regional: Ohio State (1), Coastal Carolina (2), Ohio (4)

April 8 Projection:

Coral Gables Regional (2nd Seed):

Other Teams in Regional: Miami FL (1), Bethune Cookman (4), Florida International (3)

All of these projection are super early and just serve a good talking point. It's good the see that Auburn is in the discussion, but all this really means at this point is that Auburn 1) has a solid RPI 2) has a solid record.

PARTICULARS:

Auburn does have some numbers to boast about on a national level. Out of the 288 D-1 Teams, Auburn ranks 30th in Runs Scored; 36th in Doubles, 3rd in Home Runs, 3rd in Home Runs/game, and 11th in Slugging %.

And before you think Auburn's team ERA was bad, it's only 170th nationally. The worst? That would be 0-17 Coppin State with an 17.71 ERA.

Trent Mummy is 4th nationally in Runs, and Runs per game. Joseph Sanders is 8th in Home Runs and 4th in RBIs.
