Bulldog Baseball Poll Update, Week 1 - State makes all variations of moves in big three polls

Mississippi State University | Bill Simmonds

The Bulldogs stayed put in one poll, moved up a spot in another, and fell a spot in yet another poll.

After capping of a season opening sweep of the Portland Pilots, Mississippi State made all sorts of moves today in the most recent college baseball polls.

In the Baseball America poll -- the poll who originally ranked MSU the highest at No. 5 -- State stayed put at the fifth position. All of the teams in front of MSU won their season opening series, so it would've been hard for State to move up at all.

In the latest Perfect Game poll, however, MSU dropped a spot from 16th to 17th despite the perfect 4-0 start. Some were disgruntled about it, and I admit I though Perfect Game had MSU ranked way low to start the season, but the one spot drop does make some sense, as the two teams directly behind State, Ole Miss and Rice, both took series from ranked opponents over the weekend.

In the final major poll released today, Collegiate Baseball bumped MSU up a spot from 13th to 12th after the weekend.

As of this post, the USA Today / ESPN top 25 had not been updated. They're probably too busy covering something Tebow related.

Also of note, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association today released an attendance report for the first weekend of play. As could be expected, the SEC dominated the top 10, holding the first five spots and seven out of the top 10 in average attendance. State can in fifth on the weekend, behind LSU, Ole Miss, Arkansas, and South Carolina.

MSU continues 2013 season action tomorrow with a matchup against Grambling State at Dudy Noble Field. First pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m.
