Monday News and Notes: Baseball Rankings In and Other News

It's Monday and the new college baseball rankings are out. Baseball America has us at 10th, USA Today / ESPN at 10th (up from 13th last week and 17th two weeks ago; this poll is warming up to us after having been down on the Gamecocks for most of the season), and Rivals at 9th. In other words, looking good. Unfortunately, this week doesn't give us much of a chance to move up, given the state of our competition.

If someone can explain to me why Clemson is still ranked after losing to Western Carolina and getting pounded into the ground by Georgia Tech, please let me know.
