Well, the season came and it went. Seemed like yesterday when the Rebs were taking on Florida International and the first beer shower of the year was still glorious despite the cold suds raining down from the frigid sky. Fast forward to now and the Rebs are 36-13 and in the running to host a regional. As of now, the resume is impressive. Series wins over top 5 Louisville and top 15 LSU are the exclamation points for Mike Bianco's club. But, the Diamondbearz could really use a strong finish to solidify what we are all thinking. A series win over Kentucky just might seal a host spot. Can the Rebs do it?
Once the regular season is complete, the Rebs will embark on the metropolis that is Hoover, Alabama for the SEC Baseball Tournament. This is the Hoover Met's last hurrah, it's swan song if you will. After this season, the tourney will be held somewhere else. The assumed front runners at the moment are Memphis and Nashville. Borkberry break it all down from an aesthetic standpoint and how it will affect the fan bases. Which do you prefer?
