Taking the high road

Kudos to LSU coach Paul Mainieri for taking the high road on the shared SEC baseball championship with Ole Miss.

Here's what Mainieri said after LSU's 15-4 win over Miss. State on Saturday and Ole Miss' 16-3 win over Arkansas on the same day to leave the teams tied atop the standings.

"Anytime you win 20 games in this league, you're doing something,” Mainieri said. “I tip my hat to Ole Miss. They did what they had to do. Hey, we'll share the title. They deserve it as much as we do. We won the series against them so it gives us a little bit of bragging rights. Maybe we'll meet again in the tournament.”

Obviously, Mainieri had to acknowlede the shared title. He didn't have to go through the whole "tip my hat'' thing. That he did showed some class.
