CCIW pitchers were underwhelming throughout the entire regular season, really, not just in CCIW play. Take a look at this overall season's cumulative ERA and WHIP (through this past weekend's games) and compare them to the last few seasons:

year  ERA  WHIP
2011  4.97  1.43
2012  4.48  1.53
2013  4.39  1.47
2014  4.70  1.54
2015  4.45  1.48
2016  5.17  1.62
2017  5.40  1.68

The league's pitching is slipping pretty dramatically. Kovo, you can't really challenge the numbers based upon the small sample size of four games by one team.

They got hot at the right time.

How could this forum existing without bashing Mcclary & Killing?

There was a few incoming from Illinois. I think 3 or so. Don't recall for sure.

UST's 2017 class at this point shows 41 MN kids, 9 from WI, and 7 from other states. These are high school kids. I have no clue if and how many transfers there may be.

What is very interesting is I don't think they got any kids from Illinois this time around (I admittedly need to confirm this, haven't gone through full list of recruits).  A head-scratcher for sure, particularly given how Lepsche coached at St Francis for a year (and flamed out, I know) and he'd previously been the main recruiter in Chicago.  The Loyola pipeline had been very strong, and even a few kids from the DuPage Valley and the rest of the Catholic league as well.

One last post in the West before I switch over to the CWS thread.

It looks like CLU has a favorable draw, but as always you can not look ahead and just win the first game in front of you. They are lucky that they did not put a West team at the 10:00AM slot, but the downside for a 7:45PM start is that they very rarely start on time and you can end up playing at 10:00PM.

Best of luck to CLU in representing the West.

Mount has a history of recruiting QBs and then moving them to other positions (DB/WR).


Us old guys even remember a stud MLB that came in as a QB. 

Very typical at your average small high school for the best athlete on the team to be either the TB or QB depending on the style of offense run.

Well, I can't help but root for the solutes from here on out.
