College Top 25: May 12

Miami won a series on the road against Virginia Tech to remain at No. 1. in the Baseball America Top 25 Rankings. The Hurricanes have yet to lose a weekend series this season and have been No. 1 for six straight weeks. The Top 5 in the Rankings remained status quo as each team won its weekend series, including No. 5 Nebraska's series win over No. 9 Texas A&M in what was one of the best series of the season.

UnACCeptable

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.

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.
