Deepest set of arms USM has had since 97: Just frustrating that the bats couldn't keep up...They did hit the ball well the last 3 quarters of the season and given Wheaton credit, they made some awesome plays in the field yesterday

Flaherty uses ace starter Ben Lambert as long reliever in championship (elimination) game vs Wheaton who now leads 2-0 in the 5th.  Flaherty a crafty old school coach knows that all hands on deck, (use your starting pitching in relief), is in order when the game and advancement is on the line!!!!!!!!  ECSU needs to learn from Coach Flaherty's strategies

It was set-up so well for USM: Joy hadn't pitched since he plunked a ECSU batter and got suspended 4 games in the LEC tourney....He pitched well, but his throwing error was the difference in the game:  USM had the pitching depth to make a heck of a run but the bats just weren't up to where they have been in past seasons: I'm still shocked that ECSU went 2 and barbeque as I thought they were easily one of the top two teams in New England

No clue how the NCAA comes up with this stuff.  Great for Oswego!  They can absolutely win that terrible region!!  Cortland basically only has to beat East Conn. to go to dance as well.  Fisher has been to NCAA 6 times in 11 years...only played in NY regional once during that time, 2010.  Them and Rochester get absolutely hosed in a loaded Marietta regional.  Not sure how this is come up with honestly...this makes no sense.  If Oswego can pitch at all, they go to the series.  The 4-6 seeds in the two regions in New York and Hartford...ouch.  Not cool.  How is Misericordia a three seed?  My goodness...this stuff is crazy.

I hope Oswego comes in as confident as you are

you cannot be compelled to play 3 games in one day in the playoffs.  FYI - Coe played three on Friday.

Thanks for the clarification

What a bummer that UWSP isn’t going to make regionals given their record and the wealth of talent they have. They would undoubtedly win 5 of the 8 projected regionals on d3 baseballs projections.

LOL, out of curiosity which ones? 

In today’s second game, North Central jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead over Millikin, and held a 5-1 advantage after six. The Big Blue then posted a pair of runs in both the seventh and eighth to knot things up. However, in the bottom of the eighth a Justin Rios single plated Rob Marinec with what proved the winning run after Jason Shanner closed the door in the Millikin ninth.

NCC’s win forces the “if necessary” winner take all championship game. The game, which will be the Cardinals third game of the day, will begin at 5:45. Millikin has been designated as the home team.
Its currently 88 degrees at Lee Pfund Stadium.

Last I checked, NCAA wouldn't allow teams to play 3 full games in one day: unless this changed due to COVID

They at least came back and pounded a good LaCrosse team and put up 12 runs. If they beat Stout tomorrow and then lose to Whitewater i don’t see any way a 32 win UWSP team doesn’t make regionals. Is the Stout loss today embarrassing and a huge blow yes absolutely but even with mediocre pitching I wouldn’t want To face the Pointers with that lineup. Has to be the best offense in all of d3 top to bottom no easy outs.
With Stevens Point being ranked #6 in the latest Midwest Regional Rankings, and there only being six Pool B/C bids this year, the only way they are making the Regionals this year is by winning three straight Saturday and Sunday against Stout and Whitewater.
 You already have the #1 ranked team in the West (Trinity, TX) likely claiming on of those six bids, and the #4 team in the South (Berry) also losing out on their Pool A bid puts them in the conversation as well.

When a quarter of your wins (8) are against a team that went 0-37, it does a number on your SOS, especially in a year like this where there weren't any Spring Trips to see some of those usual inter-region match-ups.  When you look at it from an intra-region aspect, it's possible the #1 (St. Thomas) and #3 (Gustavus Adolphus) will also be looking for one of those precious few Pool C bids too, as St. Thomas needs to beat St. Mary's twice tomorrow to secure the MIAC Tournament crown.  You also could be looking at having the #2 and #3 Central Region teams (North Central and Augustana) in the Pool C conversation as well, as Augustana was already eliminated from the CCIW tournament and North Central is in the same position as Stevens Point in needing to win three straight to win the Pool A bid.

Again, it's Pool A or nothing for Stevens Point....  You can bet the farm on it!

Also you cannot forget the #1 seed in New England Eastern Conn with a 32-6 record getting a pool "C" bid....4 of those 6 losses came to the #2 seed USM who got the pool A: they also beat USM 3 times as well
