Following last weekend's series sweep over the Stetson Hatters, David Perno's Diamond Dogs climbed back into the Baseball America rankings today, earning the nod as the No. 25 team in NCAA Division I. Also among the top teams in the land are No. 2 Louisiana State, No. 4 Georgia Tech, No. 5 Florida, No. 13 Clemson, No. 15 South Carolina, No. 17 Arkansas, No. 21 Ole Miss, and No. 23 Kentucky.
Jay Clark's Gym Dogs likewise staked out a position among the country's best performers, nailing down a No. 5 ranking in the wake of last Friday night's triumph. Alabama and Florida are ranked first and fourth, respectively. Other Bulldog squads are producing individual honorees, as well. Andy Landers's Lady Dogs feature SEC freshman of the week Jasmine James and the Georgia softball team boasts of two-time SEC pitcher of the week Erin Arevalo.
In other words, there's no football (yet), but sports aplenty are afoot in Bulldog Nation, even apart from Mark Fox's Hoop Dogs and the hope they intermittently induce in us.
