UCF beating Rice (at Rice) despite poor starting pitching. Maybe someone can verify but looking back over Rice's schedule from the past few seasons it doesn't look like they've lost a home conference series since 2008.

From the SEC, I was a little bit surprised that SC took 2/3 in Gainesville. Between those two teams and Vandy, the East is TOUGH.

LSU lost 2/3 to Georgia. Curious losses on their part. They currently have the worst record in the West after two weekends.

Yes, it's early, but Mississippi State is tied for the 2nd best record in the SEC after two weekends. They got much-needed win last Sunday at Vandy and swept Auburn with only one of the games being close. 4 straight wins over ranked opponents. I think it's important that they win the series at Georgia next weekend. That would be big momentum going into a HUGE home series against Florida in two weeks.

Georgia Tech sweeping Miami on the road. First time Tech has swept Miami since 1967.

I knew Tech had a good team, but fully expected the youth to show in this first real road test. Being able to sweep the series and win two games in the 9th and 10th inning really excites me about this team.

That series between UVA and Tech in Atlanta in two weeks is going to be great.

The 22 inning Fresno State victory. Anybody who hasn't had a chance to see this ball club is in for a surprise. You haven't heard much talk nationally but you will soon. Even with the loss of their starting catcher and a slumping Jordan Ribera, this club has continued to win. Completing the sweep of San Diego today should push them up even further in the National rankings.

Georgia taking 2/3 from LSU
Miss. State sweeps Auburn 3/0
Texas dropping 2/3 to OSU
Clemson losing 2/3 to NC State...wow!
Rice losing 2 of 3 to UCF ?
Coastal losing 2 of 3 to UNC Asheville...WTH?
My Gamecocks taking 2 of 3 from the Gators...nice surprise there.
Cal sweeps WSU...while not a surprise, I love it. I hope Cal ends up in Omaha. Real hard to shut a quality program down when they would be in the Final Eight.

UGA taking the series from LSU

Except that even after the series they have the third best pitching in the ACC behind Tech and UVA with an era of under 3 as a staff. Say what you will about us playing and hitting well, but to go down to Miami and sweep the first real road test for this inexperienced lineup against that staff was impressive and surprising to me.

Miami will be just fine IMO. With their pitching if they can just pick the sticks up just a little they will start rolling. The games they have lost this season have all been 1 or 2 run games. It took extras for Tech to win on Saturday and 2 runs in the 9th to win on Sunday. They are playing close games and are still sitting at 6-3 in the ACC. I look for them to win the next three series (BC, NCST, and Maryland) and head into the UNC series with some momentum.

Hey thats great. Miami is NOT playing good baseball right now, just like you said their bats are non existant. Maybe they turn it around, but after watching them this weekend they didnt really look that great. Pitching was good, but other than that they are pretty bad right now.

Either UCI is a total house of cards this year feasting on completely inferior competition or Gonzaga has one hell of an unheralded pitching staff.
