It took ‘em long enough, but I think all of the major college baseball polls—there are 3,457 at last count—have NC State ranked. The Wolfpack is one of four remaining teams still undefeated and is coming off an impressive sweep of a solid Minnesota team.
State checks in at No. 23 in the latest from Baseball America, and it’s ranked 22nd by D1Baseball. Normally I’d say those publications know what they’re talking about, but clearly they’re out here hatin’ on the Wolfpack for no good reason!!!!11
Five of NC State’s 11 wins have come against RPI top-100 opponents, led by Coastal Carolina, which is 17 in the early-going. NC State is 15th in the RPI.
And State has an excellent chance to extend its winning streak into next week, what with NC Central and a home series against Pitt on the immediate horizon. It’d be fun if both the Pack and Florida State were still undefeated when they meet for a three-game set beginning on March 15.
