I think I like the 8-1 result better. We won all 3 of our games and beat the only B12 team that won a game. Had it been an SEC sweep, we’d have been tied with the other two. Now it’s a 2 way tie for 3 wins.
I suppose if OM had lost to UT today, we’d have come out alone on top, but for the short term I like this. We will face the MS schools soon enough, but now our RPI or net or whatever will thrust us up into the top 2-3 teams in the country.
I know, I know. It’s baseball and this is only the 3rd game of 50+, but I still rather be the hunted. These wins will serve us well when the NCAA picks seeds. We just need to keep playing well, lose as few as possible
