About the seedings

Someone please tell me how the Texas Longhorns are ranked fifth in the polls and the top overall seed in the NCAA baseball tournament?

If you think LSU got screwed on this deal, how about UC-Irvine. The Anteaters are ranked No. 1 in both polls and are seeded sixth nationally. LSU, at least, is ranked No. 2 and seeded third nationally.

I know, I know, it doesn't really matter as long as you're one of the top eight seeds and get to host come Super Regionals time.

I understand that.

But I also understand this is why it's hard for anyone but seamheads to take college baseball seriously.

You've got a chairman of the selection committee, Tim Weiser, who is deputy commissioner of the Big 12 and, well what do you know, the Big 12 champion is the No. 1 seed in the whole country. And to prove just how tough the league is, the committee takes an Oklahoma State team that finished ninth in a 10-team conference when it comes to playing baseball.

And we wonder why college baseball isn't taken as seriously as football and basketball.
