The South Carolina baseball team has yet to take the field for the 2014 season but already there lies high expectations. Recently, the SEC Preseason Baseball Coaches' Poll indicates that USC is the chosen team to win the SEC. South Carolina received five first place votes to win the title as well as nine first place votes to win the Eastern Division.
Is the bar set too high?
Also the Gamecocks are nationally ranked as high as No. 7 in the country by Baseball America.
I feel the bar is not too high and we are talking about the Gamecocks here who know what it takes to win championships. Baseball seasons are always full of action and suspense but this 2014 squad has the tools to make a CWS run. That is the expectation when it comes to USC baseball.
