College Baseball Central Podcast: Recapping Week 2 Around College Baseball

On this episode of the College Baseball Central Podcast, Joe Healy and Scott Stone recap the second weekend of college baseball action. 

In the first segment, the duo talks about the headlines from the weekend, including Stanford’s impressive 8-0 start to the season and four-game sweep of Rice, Clemson’s decisive sweep of Dallas Baptist, LSU’s home series victory over Texas, East Carolina’s series win over North Carolina and whether or not it’s time to start being more concerned about the Tar Heels, Oregon State’s early dominance, and the six no-hitters in college baseball.

In the second segment, they discussed the most recent top 25 rankings, and more specifically, some of the more notable moves throughout the top 25. Among the the topics discussed here are Stanford and Mississippi’s moves in the top ten, the decision on where to slot falling teams like North Carolina and Dallas Baptist, the logjam in the latter third of the rankings, South Alabama missing the cut for the top 25 for the second week in a row, and how to balance success in weekend series versus tournaments.

They wrap up by looking ahead to some interesting midweek games, including Auburn visiting South Alabama, Oklahoma taking on Dallas Baptist, UCLA facing a struggling Cal State Fullerton as the next team on the Titans’ murderer’s row of a non-conference schedule, Wright State visiting Sam Houston State for a pair of games, Missouri State facing Oral Roberts in a matchup of two of the most consistent mid-major programs in the country, and LSU paying a visit to Southeastern Louisiana, which promises to provide a bonkers atmosphere in Hammond.

Thanks for listening, everyone!
