College baseball rankings 2014: Ole Miss locked in place

New, 13 comments

What do you get for taking two of three against Georgia? Not much, as it turns out.

The Ole Miss baseball team was stagnant in the polls in the wake of a home series win over Georgia. The Rebs stayed put in four of the five national polls, with the only movement coming from a one spot drop in Perfect Game. Their highest rank is No. 11 by Baseball America; their lowest is No. 16 by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

Georgia is an unimpressive team at 10-16-1 in conference play, but keep in mind they stole a series against South Carolina just a week ago.

Ole Miss also stayed put in Warren Nolan's RPI predictions (the official RPI will be released around midday on Tuesday) at No. 15. That puts them behind Florida (No. 3), Vanderbilt (No. 7) and South Carolina (No. 12), the three SEC teams the Rebs are in competition with for a national seed.

The Diamond Rebs have been winning a lot of baseball games lately, but don't have much progress in the polls to show for it. From a week-to-week basis, this is understandable -- their last three series wins have come against underwhelming opponents Kentucky, Arkansas and Georgia. But take a step back and you realize that this team has won seven of its last nine SEC games and hasn't lost a series in nearly a month.

Here are the rankings from each poll:

Poll Rank Previous
Baseball America 11 11
Collegiate Baseball 13 13
NCBWA 16 16
Perfect Game 12 11
USA Today Coaches' Poll 14 14
