Regional Radar (3-25)

With some success, comes some hope: Here's what some college baseball writers think of Auburn's Chances of making it to the NCAA Baseball Tourney:

SITE PREDICTION Previously Change
Rivals (SEBaseball.com) 2 Seed (Tallahassee) 3 Seed (Tallahassee) Improving
College Baseball Blog 2 Seed (Tallahassee) Unranked Seeded

With the sweep of UGA, Auburn finally started to turn some heads. However, please God, don't send us to Tallahassee. A Stacked FSU squad is one I don't want to face in the postseason. I've seen too many Auburn post seasons end in Tally.


TOURNAMENT RESUME
RECORD 16-5
RPI 16
KEY WINS Alabama (3/24), BC (2/26), FAU (2/28)
KEY LOSSES SEMO (2/19), Missouri (2/27)
BOYD'S Strength of Schedule 24
RECORD v RPI 1-25 1-3
RECORD v RPI 26-50 2-0
RECORD v RPI 51-100 3-0
RECORD v RPI 100+ 10-2


FINAL PREDICTION: You can't affect how other teams play, but Auburn really needs for BC and FAU to come on strong towards the end of the season. The better they finish, the more it helps Auburn. So far, FAU (RPI 38) has lived up to their end and, with more Sun Belt wins, should be post season bound. BC (47) has struggled, but there is always a chance to come on strong to surprise the ACC. The early losses to SEMO (168) and Mizzou (157) sting even more. Especially if Missouri continues to slide. The SEC will bring a lot of those numbers up. However, for now. Auburn is looking good.
