Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post The world’s most meaningless playoff

Friday May 16, 2008

While we wait for the Diamond Dawgs to get going in their doubleheader this afternoon, the ABH looks ahead a bit to next week’s SEC baseball tournament in Hoover, Ala. Only eight teams make the double-elimination SEC Tournament each year, and reaching Hoover is often, though not always, a sign that a team is headed for the NCAA Tournament. Once there though, the tournament is about as meaningful as basketball’s preseason NIT.

As Coach Perno points out, an SEC Tournament title is the one accomplishment that has eluded the Georgia baseball program. Sure, it would be nice to win one. But with the NCAA Tournament starting up less than a week after things get wrapped up in Hoover, I won’t be too upset if the team and pitching staff isn’t extended all the way through the weekend.
