Chasing Omaha Top-25 – April 8, 2013

NCAA Virginia Oklahoma Baseball

We’re certainly in the thick of the season at this point, and this week provided us some great entertainment and clarity.

For example, it’s very safe to say that LSU and Vanderbilt are both solid with North Carolina atop the national rankings. Both had very impressive weekends in huge series.

It’s safe to say that the Oklahoma pitching staff can hold it’s own against any other staff, especially Friday and Saturday night. The Sooners beat Texas in a series for the first time since 1998.

It’s safe to say that the Pac 12 is solid at the top, and there’s not much separation between those top four or five teams. It was a very entertaining week out west.

All of these things are accounted for in this week’s Chasing Omaha Top-25.

North Carolina, LSU and Vanderbilt lead the way, with Cal State Fullerton and Virginia rounding out the Top-5. South Carolina moves into the Top-10, while Oklahoma makes its debut there.

Oklahoma, Louisville and North Carolina State all tied for the biggest jump in the poll, all moving four spots. On the other hand, Georgia Tech and Kentucky both dropped six spots. The Wildcats were dominated by LSU this weekend while the Yellow Jackets dropped a series to Duke.

Notre Dame moved back into the poll, replacing Oklahoma State. The Cowboys dropped their series against Kansas this past weekend.
