2014 SEC Baseball Champions: Florida Gators



Ole Miss has to sweep A&M just to keep hope alive for a tie.

Well, that's 2 season goals down and 2 to go...

Goal #1 is win your division. In a major conference like the SEC, with great baseball, winning your division virtually guarantees a spot in the baseball tournament, and usually a regional host spot as well.

Goal #2 is win your conference. Again, in a strong baseball conference like the SEC, winning the conference title virtually guarantees a national seed.

Goal #3 is get to Omaha. Goal #3 is much more easily accomplished if you accomplished Goals 1 and 2.

Goal #4 is win the NC. That's obviously the ultimate goal; but winning SEC titles doesn't just mean another trophy in the cases... it also goes a long way toward winning the national title in a practical, tangible sense.

... but I'd feel a lot better about those last 2 if we could get back in a rhythm and establish some consistency in Knoxville and Hoover. We're asking a lot of a young team; we'll see how they respond.

Hoover is a big fat waste of time unless you're trying to play your way IN to the ncaa tourney.

For me, hosting is all that matters. I don't care about the regular season or Hoover. Just host every year and the rest will fall into place

That's like saying the 3 exams don't matter as long as you ace the final.
How often can you ace the final?

Ok ok. My goal is to win 40 games every year which will result in a host 100% of the time

We are getting in the regionals after this weekend win against Mizzou. We're going to be a 2 or 3 seed.

Hoover isn't necessary.

Last trip to CWS, 2 and out in Hoover.

Van Horn has never really cared about Hoover, so I don't know why I should.

It would be important if you were winning there.

Trophies, trophies, trophies

nobody cares if they win the sec tournament in baseball. The general feeling is you just play until you lose then get ready to find out where you're getting sent (or who is coming to you) for regionals.

It would be fun, but not important.

Ignoring the obvious Omaha goals, my priorities are:

1. National seed
2. SEC regular season title
3. Host  (if you win the regular season title you're obviously going to host)
4. Div title
5. Hoover

That's a bit of a contradictory statement isn't it? I agree that the tourney is useless except for teams that need it to get into the tourney.

But the regular season not only determines whether or not you get to host, but for how long; you can't really be concerned about hosting and not care about your regular season... they go hand-in-hand.

That's my point; if you finish 5th in the SEC you probably ain't hosting even a regional... finish 1st and you probably host all the way through the supers.
