With the first full day of conference tournament action in the books, we look at the latest national seeds, regional hosts, plus those teams who helped/hurt their postseason cases.

I really dont see the committee giving Louisville a national seed with an RPI of 16, certainly not if they lose again, I still think that Oregon has the inside track at the last national seed so long as they sweep Utah this week. They would have won 46 games with the 3rd toughest schedule. Louisville by comparison has 46 wins against the 132nd toughest schedule.

Borguy.. I am with you.. but you have to know that if we are on the fence, we may be passed up since we did not get it done with the gift last year. Hard saying if we are a better club. Our weakness at catcher is troublesome, and if Thomas is not healthy, we are in trouble, but yeah, I think we should take care of Utah. FSU lost its last two games. Virginia lost. Those things happen. I think we were thrown under the bus.. Only the pac crowd really knows oregon go beat by a very good team that was.. I would hate to say it.. playing there very best ball those last two games.

Kendall is there a chance if LSU wins the SEC Tournament and Vanderbilt struggles and goes out early that we could snag the number 1 seed in the tournament.

The Ducks lost season series to CSF, Vanderbilt, ASU, UCLA and OSU. Eventually, if you want to host a regional, you need to show up as one of the best. The Ducks didn't do that. They played a tough schedule, and won a lot of games. If they had beat two of those other ranked teams head to head, they are in for sure. They didn't, so it's tough to put them in as one of the top 8.

well louisville just lost to Rutgers and is eliminated from the Big East tourney, so they are out, arent even going to have a top 16 RPI at this point. not even sure louisville gets a regional host, let alone a national seed.

I think because of who they lost to, they very well may get that 8th seeded spot. Had they lost series to Auburn, Washington State or like teams, then the answer would definitely be no way. If things tip right (which it has started with a Louisville loss tonight) and the ducks manage to sweep Utah, then it is a good possibility that Oregon will be seeded.

I think the bottom line comes down to if the committee wants to give 4 national seeds to the ACC cuz right now you have UNC, Virginia and Florida State in at the moment, then you have NCState and VaTech also hanging around. (FSU and VaTech are locked in an epic pitchers duel right now in the 7th 0-0)
and VaTech just scored in the b7
beyond that you have Mississippi St, Clemson, Indiana and UCLA, and not sure any of those teams have an impressive enough resume to warrant a top 8 seed, UCLA can at least claim a series win over Oregon, but I still dont think that they jump over them.

of course all of this is dependent upon Oregon taking care of business against Utah

I think the only way that happens is if both Virginia and North Carolina struggle in the ACC tourney, and with how NC handled Miami today, not sure that happens... If Vandy struggles I think UNC takes #1 if LSU wins the SEC they may get #2. Remember UNC has the #1 RPI at the moment and LSU is sitting at #5

however before we talk about winning the SEC need to take care of business against Arkansas first....
