2015 College Baseball Season

Recommended Posts

I start this topic today as the coverage of College Baseball just got a whole lot better with today's launch of D1Baseball.com. They took this website, which previously was the only website to get updated scores from, hired the top College Baseball writers (Aaron Fitt from Baseball America and Kendall Rodgers from Perfect Game are the two leading writers), and made it the premier website for College Baseball. It even has a newly launched forum only for College Baseball.

The site launched its own Top 25 rankings this morning also:

1 Vanderbilt 51-21 SEC

2 Florida 40-23 SEC

3 Virginia 53-16 ACC

4 UCLA 25-30 Pac-12

5 South Carolina 44-18 SEC

6 North Carolina 35-27 ACC

7 Houston 48-18 American

8 TCU 48-18 Big 12

9 LSU 46-16 SEC

10 Texas 46-21 Big 12

11 Louisville 50-17 ACC

12 Oklahoma State 48-18 Big 12

13 Rice 42-20 C-USA

14 Maryland 40-23 Big Ten

15 Miami 44-19 ACC

16 Texas Tech 45-21 Big 12

17 Texas A&M 36-26 SEC

18 Ole Miss 48-21 SEC

19 Cal State Fullerton 34-24 Big West

20 Alabama 37-24 SEC

21 Florida State 43-17 ACC

22 Oregon 44-20 Pac-12

23 Nebraska 41-21 Big Ten

24 Arizona State 33-24 Pac-12

25 Tennessee 31-23 SEC

26-30, in alphabetical order:

Arkansas

Cal Poly

Clemson

College of Charleston

Mississippi State.

My inital recation is that it looks pretty good for preseason rankings. I'd have UCLA and Texas A&M lower, and Arkansas and Mississippi State (#Bias) higher.

For reference, this was the Collegiate Baseball preseason ranking released last month (note the puzzling absence of Ole Miss):

1 Vanderbilt 51-21 494

2 TCU 48-18 492

3 Virginia 53-16 489

4 LSU 46-16-1 487

5 Oklahoma State 48-18 485

6 Florida 40-23 483

7 Texas 46-21 480

8 Houston 48-18 479

9 Texas Tech 45-21 477

10 UCLA 25-30-1 473

11 Florida State 43-17 469

12 Louisville 50-17 468

13 Cal Poly 47-12 467

14 Miami (Fla.) 44-19 465

15 Oregon 44-20 462

16 UC Santa Barbara 34-17-1 460

17 Cal State Fullerton 34-24 458

18 Stanford 35-26 457

19 Arizona State 33-24 454

20 Mississippi State 39-24 452

21 South Carolina 44-18 449

22 Rice 42-20 446

23 Liberty 41-18 445

24 North Carolina 35-27 443

25 College of Charleston 44-19 440

26 Georgia Tech 37-27 438

27 Kennesaw State 40-24 436

28 Clemson 36-25 432

29 St. John's 35-20 430

30 Kent State 36-23 427

31 Ball State 39-18 425

32 Wichita State 31-28 424

33 Tennessee 31-23 421

34 San Diego 34-20 419

35 Loyola Marymount 32-24 417

36 Arkansas 40-25 414

37 Maryland 40-23 412

38 Nebraska 41-21 411

39 UC Irvine 41-25 409

40 Illinois 32-21 405

It's going to be an interesting season, especially in the SEC. Ole Miss, Alabama, Miss State, Vandy, and everyone else are going to be freaking tough. Possibly another long year for Auburn.

This is going to be a very difficult year for the Cards because they face Virginia, Miami, Florida State and other ACC powers this year.

I expect Virginia to win the ACC and be the favorite heading into regionals. They were good when State beat them in super regionals in 2013 and they were the best team in the country last year. Had they not given up that 9-run inning in Game 1 of the CWS finals, they'd be #1 right now instead of Vandy.

As someone who's a prospective college baseball player in Ohio, I really like the new D1Baseball. Adding Rogers and Fitt was great.

I guess this is as good a place as any to stick this.

UWM Panthers to play in Oak Creek baseball stadium.

As much as it sucks that the new park has to be so far from campus, at least this is the last year Wisconsin's only D1 baseball program will have to play at D1's worst baseball facility.

I'm really interested in seeing how the addition of Maryland for the Big 10 will be. The Big 10 isnt really known to be good in baseball other than maybe 1 to 2 teams every year but it should be really nice too see.

Well, who knows. Maryland and Rutgers aren't exactly baseball powers... maybe being in the Big 10 might give them some hope. Heck, Indiana has given that conference hope with their recent performances.
