When it comes to Division I baseball, the fact is that fewer people care about than the bigger sports like basketball or football.
The sport still has its fair share of passionate voices, a lot which gather over at D1baseball.com, a site which puts out its own weekly rankings during the season and also publishes a preseason tournament projection.
This season, the site put 10 SEC teams in the field of 64. Their crystal ball also told them the conference would host 6 regionals.
Florida notably ranks as the No. 1 overall seed and also gets to host its own regional. Baton Rouge (LSU), Fayetteville (Arkansas), Oxford (Ole Miss), Lexington (Kentucky), and College Station (Texas A&M) are all projected as regional hosts.
Other SEC teams the site sees in the tournament include Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Auburn and South Carolina.
The SEC Country baseball power poll also had the Gators on top. Arkansas, which finished 45-19 last season, also looks to be one of the top teams to watch in 2018. The coaches poll also agrees, putting Florida and Arkansas atop the list.
