SEC Baseball is Over-Hyped
by Darryn Rehart
Wow. How selective. Let's see, We'll pick a year and from that point we'll come up with the statistics that make us look the best.
Please now. You've had one team (LSU) have a great run in a short period of time. Take away LSU and the numbers don't look impressive at all. In fact, use numbers that tell the whole story and the history of the sport.
The SEC is been an ok conf and at times a good conf. That's it. That's the facts. Spin the numbers however you want. The SEC can't even shine the shoes of the PAC-10 and West Coast when it comes to dominating a sport. You're using since 1990. What's that?
Should I just pick a brief window and use that. The window is the totality of the history and the SEC has a fraction of the NCAA Championships the PAC-10 and the West Coast does. The amount of teams in the Tourney is ridiculous since the SEC is larger than the PAC-10 (9 teams).
The SEC year in year out gets in 2-3 teams that don't belong that fall flat on their face. Speaking of that, This years 9 teams are already down to 2 in just the first weekend with Georgia needing to win just to get to the super regional with LSU.
Not a very impressive weekend once again wouldn't you say, and as usual the West coast playing in tougher regionals beating up on each other yet it looks like it'll come down to the West getting another four teams at least into the CWS just like last year and so many others.
Spout your "Spin" somewhere else. Like with softball, The SEC overhyped and lots of teams getting in but none at the finish line. Been this way most of the past thirty years.
Editor's Note: Thanks Darryn. Sounds like your real "beef" is with the NCAA picking 9 SEC baseball teams for the Tourney. Are they not objective?
