I have seen a few impressive defensive showings, but overall we see better defense in the Little League World Series in August...
The Defense in college baseball usually leaves something to be desired. Teams typically put guys at SS who would normally play 3B or 1B in the pros. Lots of college catchers would also never get a sniff of being a catcher in professional baseball. But you've probably just caught a few bad games - I would say the defense usually isn't spectacular but it's not awful either.
