    Vols win the series at Florida after scoring 4 in the seventh to take a 5-4 lead. The score didn't change again. One step closer to an at large bid. Tennessee hasn't been to the NCAA tournament in 14 years.

    Hell of a weekend for the Dawgs. We need to take 2 out of 3 at aTm to hold on to the west.

    Y’all are going to be an interesting case study for the committee, depending on what happens next weekend. Auburn might be in the same boat if we get swept at LSU.

    If you finish 13-17, your RPI and SOS seem to say you’re good enough to get in. But I’ve only found 3 teams that finished with 13 regular season conference wins that made a regional (A&M ‘13 and ‘18, Auburn ‘15), and all three of those teams won at least one game at the SECT. So they really finished with 14+ total SEC wins. I think your metrics are good enough to get you in at 13-17 and no SECT win. Here’s to you winning the series and not having to sweat it.

    VU got in at 12-19 in 2009 but beat LSU and So Car in the first couple games in the SECT to solidify their place

    Amen. UTenn hasn't been relevant in 15 years. And Tim Corbin has been at VU for about 15 years. Funny how things work

    I put this together because Auburn seems to be in this situation often and because I’m a nerd and I way overthink these things. Here is the success of SEC teams making regionals at 13-, 14-, and 15-win regular seasons since the start of the current regional format in 1999.

    13-win seasons: SEC teams are 11 of 26 in making regionals with a 13-17 or similar regular season record. When those teams had an RPI of 30 or less, those teams qualified for a regional 8 of the 10 times. Above 30 RPI? Just 3 of 16 times. The biggest outlier was LSU in 2011, who finished with a 23 RPI but got left out.

    14-win seasons: These teams made regionals 13 out of 19 times. RPI less than 30 was 12 of 13. The only time a team didn’t qualify for a regional with a 14-win record and a 30 or less RPI was in 2000. But if you’re RPI is over 30, only 1 team with 14 wins qualified in 9 opportunities.

    15-win season: Teams have qualified 20 of 26 times, and 15 out of 15 with an RPI less than 30. RPIs between 30-40 have gone 4 of 6.

    I can’t hate. We had to go to extras last night to beat North Alabama 8-7 in 11 innings. Our midweek pitching is almost nonexistent because we’ve had to take some of the guys we were counting on for the midweek and move them to weekend duty due to injuries and others not performing.
