Baseball America, which is the poll we have consistently used here at Building the Dam, hasn't released their final poll, but the other 4 major lists are out, and all are in agreement that Oregon St. is #4. In fact, the Perfect Game, Collegiate Baseball, National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, and USA Today
Coaches' Assistant Sports Information Directors polls all agree on the top 4, with UCLA the obvious #1, after winning the College World Series last night, completing a sweep of Mississippi St. with an 8-0 win, the Bulldogs at #2, and North Carolina #3.
Minor differences of opinion begin to arise over the relative placement of the other 4 teams that advanced to Omaha, with Vanderbilt and Fullerton St. rounding out all of the top 10's.
Baseball America fell in line with the other polls, with the same top 4, and the same 6 teams rounding out their top 6.
It's only the 6th top-10 finish for Oregon St., with this year's squad joining the 1963, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2011 teams.
Oregon garnered 17th place in 3 of the polls, with a #15 thrown in on the USA Today Poll, and Arizona St. had 2 #19s, a 20, and a 21, so the Pac-12 had 4 consensus top 20 teams.
Oregon added another 17th in the Baseball America final poll, and Arizona St. was their #22.
Cal-Poly cracked 3 of the top 25, and San Diego the other, rounding out the west's top 25 representation. The Toreros also made the Baseball America top 25.
Fitt also expects to see Oregon in Omaha, and UCLA hosting a Super Regional, while Rogers thinks the Bruins will be back to try to defend their first baseball National Championship, and has Oregon on his next 5 teams to watch.
Fitt expects Cal-Poly to have another top 25 team as well, so it should be another good year for west coast baseball.
