Preseason Sun Belt Conference Poll


Preseason Sun Belt Conference Poll

Coach McCormack may have his work cut out for him… at least according to his fellow coaches.  Florida Atlantic is predicted to finish the 2009 season sixth in the conference, according to the newly released Preseason Coaches Poll.  The 11 coaches of the Sun Belt Conference baseball programs vote on the predicted order of finish and select Preseason All-Conference players.  The Owls received 66 points in the poll and is seen to be a "middle of the conference" team, despite returning seven seniors on offense this season.

However, my prediction of a Western Kentucky University repeat as conference champions is on point with the conference coaches.  The Hilltoppers received 9 first-place votes, finishing with 119 points and first-place in the poll.
