Consolidated Weekly College Baseball Ranking

Had Vanderbilt not blown a four run ninth inning lead in the second game of the Ole Miss series on Friday, they still might be ranked atop this list for another week.  However, they dropped that game 6-5 in 16 innings and now they've tumbled to 5th.  Despite having the most talented roster in college baseball from a prospect perspective, the Commodores aren't playing their best baseball and have a losing record against top 50 RPI schools.

What Texas A&M, our new #1, has done this season is nothing short of amazing.  They've compiled a 33-3 record while missing their two best arms entering the season.  A.J. Minter (Tommy John) is out for the season, but Tyler Stubblefield (ACL) is set to return soon to aid Grayson Long and company.

I'm going to get my second look at our #4 team, Louisville, tomorrow night as they travel to Columbus for some midweek action against The Ohio State University.  I first saw Louisville split a double header against Xavier on a February 28th.  The Cardinals were sloppy and didn't resemble a team that was pushing to make a third consecutive trip to Omaha.  All they've done since is go 16-2 in the ACC.

Enough of this palaver, let's get on with it.  See below for your top college baseball teams.
