Podcast Rebellion 2.5: Analyzing Ole Miss baseball's national seed resume

New, comments

The sweep of Kentucky put the Diamond Rebs into the national seed race. Can they secure their spot with a win over A&M this weekend?

Despite the midweek finale loss to Arkansas State on Tuesday, Ole Miss is still sitting pretty for a regional host. The Rebels resume boasts five sweeps (three in the SEC); non-conference wins over Coastal Carolina (No. 16 RPI), Southern Miss (No. 17 RPI) and a series win over Louisville (No. 2 RPI); 17 conference wins, 22 non-conference wins and 39 total wins.

As we turn our attention to the upcoming series in College Station against the Aggies (No. 4 RPI), Ole Miss is suddenly in play for a national seed. To earn that, the Rebs will probably have to win two on the road this weekend. 41 regular season wins, which has never been done before at Ole Miss, would look very enticing to the NCAA Selection Committee. Two wins could also potentially move the Rebs into second place in the West and first-round bye territory in Hoover.
