UT Still Clear #1 in Tubili's "Even Better" Blended Baseball Poll!

Got tired of waiting for PG Crosschecker . . . still no poll result posted so screw them.  Another very successful week for the UT baseball guys as they got very good pitching from all starters (except for Brandon Workman who looked almost human for a change), great timely hitting (especially at KSU . . . thanks Kevin) and stellar fielding (Texas has 3rd best fielding % in the country!) to go along with it all.  Newest Tubili blended poll still has UT as the clear No. 1 team in the nation.  In an effort to make you all happy, my expanded poll has tweaked the ERA stats this week to make it more realistic and fairer to all.  What I did was ascribe a raw number to an ERA range.  ERA from 2.01 - 2.25 gets a 1; from 2.26 to 2.50 gets a 3; from 2.51 to 2.75 gets a 5, and so forth and so on . . . increments of two for each jump all the way up.  I felt this was a more even handed approach given that the numbers are pretty close together and a huge number might skew my results (ie Auburn gets a 23 instead of a 65 [their actual ERA ranking] and Florida gets a 17 instead of a 27[ditto], etc.).  Latest numbers I'm using are as of May 9th and come from the NCAA site.  I repeat, that's why I call it my "Laggin' ERA".  Thoughts?  Did I get it right?  Only other Big 12 team on the radar is Oklahoma at #16 (up a notch from #17) . . . Kansas State fell out of my top 20 . . . and even my top 30 (barely).  Other teams of interest . . . TCU with a very nice showing at #6 (up from #7) and Rice almost breaking into my top 20 by sneaking up a place to #22.  And so . . . here ya go!
