Re: 2018 D1 Baseball Poll

And youre both still wrong. These preseason polls and even in season polls have zero bearing on the RPI. You said "SEC schools are assumed to be better any games are played". That's incorrect in terms of RPI. Take a look at the RPI formula for yourselves. For these rankings to matter for t...

Re: 2018 D1 Baseball Poll

You are wrong. The strength of schedule is based on your opponents records and the records of their opponents. The RPI formula doesn’t even know if a team is ranked in the D1 baseball poll or any other poll for that matter.

There is no RPI Bias. RPI is a formula and it doesn’t take into account any polls

If Scott comes to Tulane I'd Be surprised if he didn't take the starting job from Banks when it's all said and done. Maybe not by opening week but at some point in the season

Re: Wave picked 8th in AAC Preseason Baseball Poll

And if the 2018 season doesn't pan out the way the poll suggests and we end up being very competitive, it will confirm that the people doing this poll were too lazy to actually do the research and just went by last years results.

Re: Miss State Baseball Recruiting

Pretty simple and basic stuff. Warren asked Pierce to let him out of his Letter of Intent, he did and was free to sign wherever he wanted. Nothing confusing about it. A quick google search will show you that Warren did originally sign with Tulane.

Re: Miss State Baseball Recruiting

Here's how the 2014 class was hurt, the classes are re-ranked in August when they actually know who will be on campus. Class rankings before the kids have decided whether or not they'll go pro are worthless. If you didn't realize that, then you probably don't know much about college baseball recruit...

Re: Memphis GameDay Thread

Look at our offense and try to imagine it simulating this Memphis offense. You can see how unprepared that would make the defense to defend Memphis. People post this two or three times a week. Our starters and 2nd, and even third team players don't try to stimulate the opponent. As a matter of fact...

Re: For Discussion-What would you do....

I was mostly referring to the NFL but they get scholarships and they do get stipends and many other benefits. They are on the teams time then and not their own. If they want to protest they can buy a ticket and go the game and sit when the anthem is played. Well you're obviously wrong. Their employ...

I'm glad that college teams stay in the locker room for the anthem so I'll never have to make that decision. Yes. I believe they do for football but baseball and basketball come out for it though.
