Florida Gators Baseball Team Maintains No. 1 Spot In Rankings

Eventually these posts will get old. Actually, check that; they probably won’t. After all, why would they? The Florida Gators’ baseball team was No. 1, is No. 1, and probably will be No. 1 in the future. They are that good and continue to get better.

The Gators maintained the top spot in the Baseball America Top 25 Rankings. Florida continues to keep other teams out of the top spot and looks like it has absolutely no plans to give it up any time soon after going 4-0 last week. The 19-1 Gators have now won 17 games in a row.

Although it didn’t occur at the top, there was some change among the top 10. The teams remained the same, but some shuffling occurred. Former No. 3 South Carolina went 2-3 last week and dropped to No. 8.

Good for the Gators is the rise of a few teams they have played well against. Florida State rose from No. 7 to No. 6 and Cal State Fullerton – still the only team to defeat Florida during the 2011 season – went 2-2 last week, but still managed to climb two spots to No. 13.

The SEC – strong so far this season – did lose Mississippi State who dropped out, but replaced them with a team that has started the season on fire. Coming into the polls at No. 16 was Kentucky who is an amazing 21-0.
