The Road to Hoover: SEC Baseball Update

It's getting down to the nitty gritty now for the 12 SEC baseball teams. Only eight will make it to the conference tournament in Hoover, Ala. Vanderbilt got a big, 17-5, win over Georgia on Friday night. However, the two remaining games of the series were cancelled due to rain and will never be played. Hopefully that will not come back to haunt Vandy. Here's a look at where things stand now.

Looking good: South Carolina, Florida, Arkansas, Ole Miss.

Not too shabby: Vanderbilt, Auburn, LSU.

Can get in with great finish: Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama.

Must win out: Georgia, Mississippi State.

NOTES: The two division champions will automatically be seeded No. 1 and No. 2 based on conference winning percentage. The rest will be seeded No. 3 to No. 8 based on winning percentage without regard to division. The SEC has a complicated tie breaker procedure for when two teams are tied for a finish. Over the past four years, all teams that have had at least 15 conference wins have made the tournament field. One team that had 14 wins did not make it to the tournament (Arkansas in 2008). One team has made it to the tournament with as little as 12 wins (Vanderbilt 2009).
