We are still five days away from Christmas and barely into basketball season so what better time than now for Collegiate Baseball to release its preseason poll. Maybe they are buying into the whole Mayan apocalypse hogwash and want to make sure they get their rankings out before the world supposedly comes to an end tomorrow.
But anyway, the poll ranks the top 40 teams. USC came in a number seven. Clemson was 27th. Coastal Carolina was the only other in-state team ranked, coming in at 38th. Arkansas was the top ranked team in the poll. North Carolina, Vanderbilt, LSU and UCLA round out the top five teams.
Feel free to check out the entire poll here.
