If you don't like upsets, then the second day of the SEC baseball tournament probably wasn't for you.
Of the four games, two of them saw lower seeds come out on top. Let's take a look at Wednesday's results:
|2016 SEC Baseball Tournament: May 25 Scores|
|No. 6 Vanderbilt||6-5||No. 3 Texas A&M|
|No. 7 Ole Miss||10-4||No. 2 South Carolina|
|No. 1 Mississippi St.||4-1||No. 9 Alabama|
|No. 5 LSU||5-3||No. 4 Florida|
Thursday will pit the losers of Wednesday's games against each other, thus putting their collective backs against the wall. One more loss will eliminate them from the tournament.
Here's what the schedule looks like for Thursday:
|2016 SEC Baseball Tournament: May 26 Schedule|
|10:30 a.m.||No. 3 Texas A&M*||No. 2 South Carolina*|
|Following||No. 9 Alabama*||No. 4 Florida*|
|4:30 p.m.||No. 6 Vanderbilt||No. 7 Ole Miss|
|Following||No. 1 Mississippi St.||No. 5 LSU|
While it's surprising that No. 2 South Carolina and No. 3 Texas A&M are facing elimination so early, the writing was on the wall.
South Carolina has been dreadful in Hoover, Alabama, the site of the SEC tournament. The Gamecocks haven't won a game in this tournament since 2012 and haven't posted a winning record in Hoover since 2007.
At the end of the day, though, this is a team that won 42 games this year and won the SEC East with a 20-9 record. But it could all come crashing down to an ugly end against Texas A&M, a team that finished second in the SEC West and has the SEC Player of the Year in Boomer White:
The Aggies had the unfortunate task of opening up against a Vanderbilt team that's played for the national championship in each of the last two seasons, so that No. 6 seed could be deceiving for fans who are looking at these matchups on paper.
These slow starts will ensure that there will be plenty of drama in Hoover. It's just three days into the SEC tournament, and one of the top three seeds will be going home much earlier than expected.
