We present the SEC conference standings juxtaposed against the RPI.
Congratulations. Left for dead at one point in the season, @CoachKingUSC’s #Gamecocks baseball team pummelled RPI darling Texas A&M (18th before the series) on the road. The A&M series must have turned the NCAA RPI statistician’s face beet red. The Gamecocks final SEC record is 17-13, ahead of five SEC RPI darlings.
Seriously. The NCAA’s RPI statistic seems very flawed. Perhaps games later in the season should be weighted more heavily. That would insure the hottest teams get seeded properly for the upcoming NCAA baseball tournament.
RPI rankings seem random. Who even knows if the RPI will be of much relevance to the Committee selecting regional pairings on Memorial Day.
How long Missouri fans? How long will you tolerate this idiotic, dangerous athletic director leading your athletic programs?
Yesterday, @MizzouBaseball outfielder @cade_bormet10 suffered a serious injury because of a brick wall recently installed in the outfield foul areas. Watch SEC Network announcers rip Jim Sterk and the Missouri program here.
According to reports Bormet suffered multiple fractures in his face, including the orbital bone, and suffered a cut knee. Bormet is likely to have a concussion. We pray he recovers. Brain injuries like this one are permanent.
Amazingly, Sterk’s athletic department brags that the dangerous wall was recently added for baseball fan aesthetics.
The University of Missouri recentley [sic] renovated Taylor Stadium. The highlight of the renovations was the new state-of-the art McArtor Baseball Facility, which features indoor batting cages and pitching mounds. In addition, a new scoreboard and video board was installed, along with a brick wall that spans foul territory and an improved outfield wall.
Missouri Athletic Department Baseball Site. Player safety needs to be a higher priority in Missouri. Missouri also has “aesthetic” brick walls in its football stadium.
Pad the wall, Sterk. Please.
YOU IDIOT JIM STERK. REAP THE WHIRLWIND
