Heh...yea. Ok. You putting Rice at number five just lost all of your credibility with me. They're the only team out of any of those that actually played a team and they were all close games.

Rice will not be the #5 team in Texas by the end of the year, I did it because of the losing record, I felt like I needed to. They can easily redeem themselves

Texas State has a good club, it will be interesting to see how they do the rest of the year. If Smith would have started Friday they would have gone 3-0 in their tourney.

Agreed. Carson Smith is an animal; they wanted to work him in slowly to see how his arm felt. He'll be starting tomorrow night against Rice. Should be a great game in San Marcos. If their pitching depth can stay strong, this team will be scary. That's always been the problem in the past.

Texas loses at home to TX A&M CC to a pitcher who issues 8 walks and 1 hbp and Baylor gets shut out at home by two freshman....good call

I'm not saying you are wrong, but you base this on what?

In my opinion, we can't tell much of anything right now. TCU ought to be very good but putting the remaining teams in any kind of order is a crapshoot. Texas, for example, has lost opening series many times over the last few years and still been a very good team. Likewise, I remember the Aggies splitting a series with Northern Colorado in 2008 and almost losing a series to a poor Rutgers team yet winning the Big 12 and playing Rice in a super.

In short, I don't think we'll know much until a few weekends from now at best.

Just my humble opinion but think Baylor is still living on past laurels a little. Their 12-13 conference record last year (36-24 overall) wasn't worthy of a NCAA bid and their recruiting class last year wasn't great either so don't see the preseason top 20 ranking.

As far as Texas I don't think they did enough to replace the offense lost and something is different about Cole Green from the back half of last year.

In the end, time will tell as you say.

That's a fair assessment. I'm always amazed at what some poor teams can become in one year though. For example, Baylor didn't even a winning record (29-31) in 2004, returned most of their guys, and won the Big 12 (and went to the CWS) the next year.

It will be interesting to see what happens.
