From SEC Media Relations
The Arkansas Razorbacks are predicted to win the 2013 Southeastern Conference baseball championship, as voted by the league’s 14 baseball coaches in the 22nd annual preseason SEC poll.
The Razorbacks, ranked No. 1 nationally in the preseason USA Today Coaches’ Poll, seek to capture their third SEC Championship and first since 2004. Arkansas returns five position starters and 10 pitchers from its 2012 squad which advanced to the College World Series semifinals.
Since 1996, the SEC has named a regular season champion as well as a tournament champion. Prior to 1996, the tournament champion was considered the SEC Champion.
In addition to picking a preseason SEC champion, the league’s head coaches voted a predicted order of finish in the SEC Eastern and Western Divisions. In the Eastern Division, Vanderbilt was the favorite with 89 of a possible 91 points. Florida came in second with 67 points, with Kentucky and South Carolina tied at third with 59. Arkansas received 90 points in the West. LSU was second with 75, while Mississippi State finished third with 59.
Points were compiled on a 7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis for each division. Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own team. Each coach also voted for one team as an overall conference champion.
1) Arkansas 90 (12)
2) LSU 75 (1)
3) Mississippi State 59 (1)
4) Ole Miss 54
5) Texas A&M 51
6) Alabama 26
7) Auburn 24
1) Vanderbilt 89 (12)
2) Florida 67
3) Kentucky 59 (1)
South Carolina 59 (1)
5) Georgia 41
6) Tennessee 29
7) Missouri 23
SEC Champion: Arkansas (9), Vanderbilt (3), Kentucky (1), LSU (1)

I can't wait for baseball season to officially start. hopefully our boys can live up to all the hype
Pretty sure I'll be at the game on Sunday.
From NEA to NWA.
I definately plan on it too!
Can not wait for Season to start, Hogs are primed for another run to Omaha!! WPS!!
We need some Championships....let's go Diamond Hogs!!
It's going to be a special year. Go Hogs
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
I plan on going to the opener Friday afternoon, but there's currently a chance of snow showers. Anybody know what the inclement weather policy is? Would they play in light snow?
They make every effort to play each day. Unless the snow gets heavier than I have heard it will they should be able to play
Thanks, Otis. I have a friend coming in from Missouri -- we're doing the Diamond Hogs Friday night and Hoop Hogs Saturday afternoon. Can't wait!
Just a visiting Gamecock and hope you guys don't mind me stopping by. Just wanted to say congrats to all the Hawgs on your preseason ranking and best wishes on the year. Looking forward to our series this year and hope we can make it interesting. Looks like you guys have the best pitching staff in the SEC and maybe the best in the country. Good luck on this opening weekend, I hear the weather's gonna be kind of tough, and hopefully we get to see you guys in Omaha again this year!
