I think beating Grand Canyon could help Arkansas a lot in RPI this season. Just after these two games the Razorbacks jumped 30 spots in RPI to 47th. It will continue to go up if they win the majority of their SEC games.
I was very impressed with GC,they had some really good pitching which should help us going forward,they are very solid in all areas so I’m glad we got the sweep…
No NET rating for baseball?
GCU is a good team and I expect they’ll do well in the WAC, which also includes New Mexico State. NMSU’s Nick Gonzalez leads the nation in homers with 12. (The two leading teams in homers are Ole Miss and Tennessee).
RPI is probably not very useful until April, which is why you can jump 30 spots after a midweek series with a decent team.
I think having to scrap for a win yesterday is probably good practice for what SEC play will be like, when there are few easy victories.
