2014 College Baseball

For the first time in a dozen years I will not be updating SEBaseball.com's Baseball Central or Ranks and Ratings Blog. Like many fans I will miss Mark's site, but like the publisher I find less time to devote to it. This "Baseball Central Lite" site will serve as an index to some of the things worth keeping - the reporting programs don't get tired and uploading to this site takes much less of my time than the Rivals process did. This page will serve as an index to reference material and the odd article. Consider it a "work in progress."
