College Top 25: May 5

Miami swept St. Mary's to improve its record to 39-5 and remain atop the Baseball America Top 25 Rankings for the fifth straight week. Arizona State won its series on the road against Pac-10 opponent UCLA to move up to the No. 3 spot. The Sun Devils were followed by Florida State, winner of a pair of games on the road against Clemson, and Nebraska, who swept Louisiana-Lafayette, at the Nos. 4 and 5 spots. Stanford lost a pair of midweek games against Santa Clara and UC Davis to slip to No. 6.

UnACCeptable

John Manuel -Premium Content

The Atlantic Coast Conference ain't what it used to be. The league expanded this decade in two stages, from a nine-team league to a 12-team super-conference. Football drove the expansion, of course, as Boston College, Miami and Virginia Tech joined the league. Since then, Wake Forest—one of the smallest Division I football programs in the country—has played in the Bowl Championship Series, while Miami and Florida State (added in 1992) have slipped from national powers to mediocrity.

When it comes to being tough, Chuck Norris has nothing on Conor Gillaspie, the reigning Cape Cod League MVP, preseason All-American and Wichita State's top player. As Gillaspie is quick to point out, growing up in the upper Midwest isn't like growing up in a warm-weather baseball hotbed down South or on one of the coasts. Before he became a standout third baseman for Wichita State, Gillaspie starred for Omaha's Millard North High, which went 35-0 his senior year and won the Nebraska state championship.

Aggies Keep Climbing

Miami swept conference foe Virginia to remain on top of the Baseball America Top 25 rankings for the fourth consecutive week, but there was plenty of shuffling elsewhere in the new rankings. A pair of Big 12 teams made big moves to break into the Top 10 this week. Oklahoma State swept its weekend series with Kansas to move up to No. 9, and Texas A&M swept then-No. 4 Missouri, giving the Aggies wins in 20 of their last 21 games, to move up from No. 18 to No. 10.
