Jim Harrick once said (paraphrase) that college basketball polls only have value in so much as they determine which teams have their highlights featured on ESPN SportsCenter and their recaps in every national paper.

College baseball polls mean even less because the World Wide Leader doesn't cover the sport until the post-season.

Various RPI-style ratings determine the NCAA Post-Season. With that in mind, Warren Nolan says the Dawgs currently have the #24 RPI. That rating could skyrocket after games with Tech, Tennessee (3), Clemson (2), and LSU (3) over the next two weeks.

On Wednesday, UGA plays at Tech (7:00 pm). I think the game will be carried by CSS in Atlanta.

This team is extremely fun to watch. They play 3-5 freshman per game so their bound to have some stumbles along the way, but the is a team worth watching. We'll know what type of team we have very soon.

*Baseball America has the Dawgs at #6. But three out of four is good enough.

Memo to the next basketball coach:

The state of Georgia has talent! Recruit it and you will win.

try online on the GT website to be safe. I got mine 2 weeks ago, anticipating a big game.

is there a specific place road team fans sit? 3rd base side?

The funny thing is that Baseball America does not have us ranked #1 and one of the their big editors is UGA alum Jim Callis.

Absolutely no reason that UGA and GT, yes GT, could have teams like this in Basketball too.
