Florida didn't quite earn the No. 1 overall seed, but the Gators got the next best thing.

Florida's baseball team was named the No. 2 national seed in the field for the 2014 NCAA Tournament on Monday.

The selection as a national seed is Florida's fifth since 2009, the most in the nation, and was all but announced as of last week, given Florida's regular season SEC championship. While there had been some sentiment that the Gators could earn the second No. 1 overall seed in school history, that seed went to Pac-12 champion Oregon State instead.

Florida's no stranger to lofty seedings under Kevin O'Sullivan, as Scout's Cody Jones, the ace of the Florida baseball beat, notes:
