National Champs would have been Ole Miss!
Ole Miss was looking good to make it.
They had the strong duo of Nikhazy and Hoglund which would have been great for a Super.
Mississippi State was heating up
They did finish with two wins over Texas Tech. I'm worried what life without JT Ginn would have looked like for them.
Ole Miss and Vanderbilt in an SEC showdown for the national title. Texas Tech was good and I think they may have made it to Omaha, but not into the national championship. Texas had a good shot, but I feel like its hard to know because conference action never even started in the Big 12
I liked Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, and Texas Tech. I'm not so sure about Texas. I think they were probably a Regional team but not an Omaha team. I liked Oklahoma, TCU, and Oklahoma State more in the Big 12.
@John Peters I agree with you regarding Texas. Not sure they had enough depth. TCU though had some potential. Not sure if they were an Omaha team either though. Tech most likely would have rolled to the Big 12 title.
@Riley Zayas It felt that way, but OU had a lot of seniors and might have given Tech a run for their money.
I'm usually partial to picking teams that were really good the previous year, got upset along the way, but are still really good this year. I think the prime candidates along those lines this year would have to be UCLA, Mississippi, and UC Santa Barbara. I think Florida would've made it also, they looked great. Other than that, crap shoot...
I like all of those picks. UCLA did a good job reloading. They lost so much talent to the 2019 draft.
@John Peters They really did, and UCSB also had huge losses--I thought they would both drop off some. But apparently not for either--UCSB took 2 of 3 from Sac State, and swept Oregon State, both on the road, and also beat UCLA at home.
College Baseball Nation's Final Top 8:
1. Ole Miss
3. Texas Tech
Only in old myths minds.
OLE MISS #1
I think they had a really good shot. They had the pitching and offense. They were a little HR heavy which would have been interesting to see in TD Ameritrade.
