Texas A&M Baseball: It's Time To Start Beating Good Teams Now

Aggie baseball fans could have several theories about why they were quickly and unceremoniously eliminated from tournament play this past weekend- an offense that only once scored over 4 runs in the postseason, facing a TCU team that decided to start hitting home runs out of nowhere, or being on the unlucky end of awful, awful officiating by the umpires in College Station (it was almost impressive how horrible they were over the entire weekend).

↵

One possible explanation, though, and the one that could have a huge impact on their opening season in SEC play next year, is their success against the top RPI teams they played.

↵

Based on Warren Nolan's current RPI rankings, Texas A&M went a gentleman's 1-8 this season against teams in the Top 25 RPI. It's hard to have a deep post season run when you struggle against quality opponents.

↵

And what of their future conference brethren? How many of them are highly-ranked RPI teams that A&M will need to beat?

↵

Well, not good news for A&m. Eight of the current twelve teams are in the Top 25.

Aggies, it's time to start beating good teams.
