we are #1 as expected, Neb is 49 and Fairfield SOS was 200 plus, our SOS was teens.
Looks like they claim Clemson #1 SOS. Other high SOS are Pac-12 teams. SEC teams are surprisingly low.
Interesting since D1 Baseball showed our RPI #1 and SOS #1.
With our schedule there is absolutely no way our SOS is #14
ACC teams played very little nonconference, Clemson went 8-6 and played Cincinnati x 3, the Poultry x 2, East Tenn, SC Upstate, Georgia State, Georgia x 2 and Hogmaestro’s employer, C of C. But Warren Nolan had their SOS at #19. Decent SOS to be sure, but not up to playing, say, Tennessee X 4, Ole Miss x 4, Georgia x 4, Moo U x 3, Florida x 3, and Vandy. Plus, LaTech x 3, Texass, TTech and TCU.
Boyd is a Moo U grad, by the way, but he doesn’t seem to cook his numbers. Still that’s a pretty good SOS discrepancy, even taking into account our games with UAPB, Memphis, UCA, ASWho and UALR (are you detecting a theme here?). Best RPI of that bunch was UALR at 172. Clemson’s worst RPI game was Ga State at 166. I guess the SoCar midmajors are better than the Arkansas midmajors, and they didn’t even play Coastal. SC Upstate is top 50 RPI.
No team outside the SEC can have the number one SOS…
