UNLV baseball team breaks into another poll


I see where the UNLV baseball team is nationally ranked again, having been slotted 25th by Perfect Game.

Perfect Game?

I must confess that before reading the news release that said the Rebels had been nationally ranked this week by Perfect Game, I had never heard of this magazine/newspaper/website/tribute to Don Larsen.

This raises the question: How many college baseball polls are there, anyway?

As far I (and Google) can tell, there are seven:

• CBI Composite National Poll

• Baseball America

• Boyd’s World RPI

• Collegiate Baseball

• NCBWA

• Perfect Game

• USA Today Coaches

So I vow from this day forward never to poke fun again at the Golden Globes, and whatever MTV calls that poll/awards show where Madonna kissed Britney Spears.
