Although it doesn’t look like Perno’s Dawgs are bound for Omaha this year, they’re currently on target for another post-season trip.
According to the latest ESPN projections, look for the Dawgs to end up as the No. 3 seed in the Chapel Hill regional, where N. 7 UNC would the top seed and other projected teams would be College of Charleston and UNC Wilmington.
With a record of 24-18 after last night’s loss to the Enginerds (we’ll try not say much about that one) and 8-10, Georgia isn’t quite in bubble territory yet, but that could change.
Currently, eight SEC schools are projected by ESPN to make the field, and Georgia joins Mississippi State as two SEC teams projected for the field with a losing record in conference play.
Among teams projected to be among the final teams passed over for a spot are Georgia Tech, Auburn and Tennessee.
The next few weeks could make or break Georgia’s NCAA hopes with a weekend series against Auburn in addition to a single game against Georgia Tech.
There’s also this weekend’s trip to LSU, a home series against South Carolina and a road series against Alabama to close out the regular season.
Suffice to say, Georgia’s post-season fate could be made or broken within the next few weeks.
