Western Division

20-14
(5-7)
4/04 Bama 2 at UAB 1
4/06 Bama 0 at Vandy 3
4/07 Bama 2 at Vandy 4
4/08 Bama 5 at Vandy 3
4/10 Bama vs SE Louisiana (postponed)

After salvaging the weekend with a Sunday win over the top ranked Commodores, the Tide was forced to postpone it's home game with SE Louisiana due to the weather. They'll welcome the Diamond Dawgs of UGA to Tuscaloosa tomorrow.

26-10
(8-4)
4/3 Arkansas 14 vs Northern Colorado 6
4/04 Arkansas 9 vs Northern Colorado 7
4/06 Arkansas 9 vs Miss State 11
4/07 Arkansas 1 vs Miss State 2
4/08 Arkansas 9 vs Miss State 3
4/11 Arkansas 2 vs Missouri State 0

Sixth ranked Arkansas stumbled over the weekend, dropping two of three to visiting Mississippi State, and falling to #9 in the rankings. The Hogs welcome a Florida team fresh off it's own falter to Fayetteville tomorrow.

24-12
(3-9)
4/03 Auburn 5 vs South Alabama 2
4/06 Auburn 6 at LSU 1
4/07 Auburn 7 at LSU 0
4/08 Auburn 1 at LSU 10
4/10 Auburn 22 vs Mercer 6

The Teagles took out their frustration at not sweeping LSU on a hapless Mercer team, pounding out a season high 22 runs on 22 hits. They hit the road tomorrow for a series with the 'Cocks in Columbia.

19-15-1
(4-7-1)
4/03 LSU 9 at Tulane 16
4/06 LSU 1 vs Auburn 6
4/07 LSU 0 vs Auburn 7
4/08 LSU 10 vs Auburn 1
4/11 LSU 4 vs Miss Valley State 1

Man, I bet there are still some pissed off LSU fans after that 16-9 drubbing by Tulane. They'll host Ole Miss this weekend.

24-11
(7-5)
4/03 Ole Miss 19 vs Arkansas State 3
4/06 Ole Miss 9 vs UGA 8
4/07 Ole Miss 3 vs UGA 4
4/08 Ole Miss 9 vs UGA 0
4/11 Ole Miss 2 at Southern Miss 4

Ole Miss travels to LSU tomorrow after taking their weekend series with UGA and dropping one in Hattiesburg. I guess it was a bad week to challenge in state C-USA opponents. Good thing the Tide played UAB last week.

22-8
(7-5)
4/03 State 17 vs La. Monroe 7
4/06 State 11 at Arkansas 9
4/07 State 2 at Arkansas 1
4/08 State 3 at Arkansas 9
4/11 State 5 at South Alabama 1

The Bulldogs travel to Knoxville (boo! hiss!) this weekend. Keep them in your prayers.

Eastern Division

20-16
(8-4)
4/03 Florida 16 at Florida State 7
4/06 Florida 2 vs South Carolina 12
4/07 Florida 9 vs South Carolina 8
4/08 Florida 6 vs South Carolina 8
4/11 Florida 2 vs UCF 6

The Gators faltered this week, dropping their series with the 'Cocks in Gainesville over the weekend before falling to (in state C-USA opponent) UCF on Tuesday. They'll look to rebound this weekend at Arkansas.

12-21
(4-8)
4/03 UGA 2 vs Clemson 4
4/04 UGA 10 at Clemson 11
4/06 UGA 8 at Ole Miss 9
4/07 UGA 4 at Ole Miss 3
4/08 UGA 0 at Ole Miss 9
4/10 UGA 1 vs Savannah State 0

It must stink to be an UGA baseball fan. They'll journey to beautiful Tuscaloosa over the weekend, so they've got that going for them.

25-7-1
(5-6-1)
4/07 Kentucky 2 vs UT 12
4/07 Kentucky 5 vs UT 11
4/08 Kentucky 3 vs UT 1
4/11 Kentucky 1 at Louisville 3

After their contest with Western Carolina on the 3rd was cancelled, the Wildcats dropped their Saturday double header with the Vols (boo! hiss!) before rebounding on Sunday to salvage the weekend and then dropping one to in state rival (and former C-USA member) Louisville. They'll welcome the #1 Commodores to Lexington tomorrow for the weekend.

26-7
(7-5)
4/04 South Carolina 10 vs Furman 0
4/06 South Carolina 12 at Florida 2
4/07 South Carolina 8 at Florida 9
4/08 South Carolina 8 at Florida 6

After taking their road series with Florida, SC got the week off to prepare for a visit from the Teagles. Go 'Cocks!

20-13
(6-6)
4/04 Tennessee 13 vs ETSU 6
4/07 Tennessee 12 at Kentucky 2
4/07 Tennessee 11 at Kentucky 5
4/08 Tennessee 3 at Kentucky 1

With their visit from UNC Asheville cancelled, the Vols have had plenty of time to prepare for a visit from a Mississippi State team fresh from an upset in Fayetteville. Also, a quick question for the Vol fans among us about something I just noticed: Why does the baseball team use a "UT" logo instead of the "T" that's most associated with the Vols? Just curious.

30-5
(7-5)
4/04 Vandy 4 at Austin Peay1
4/06 Vandy 3 vs Alabama 0
4/07 Vandy 4 vs Alabama 2
4/08 Vandy 3 vs Alabama 5
4/11 Vandy 7 vs Belmont 6

The Commodores took two of three from our own beloved Tide over the weekend, so screw them. They'll probably beat Kentucky in Lexington, too, so whatever.
