Midwest Region / Re: BB: 2013 Regionals (MIdwest)
« on: May 27, 2013, 01:01:55 pm »
Twitter says Franz is starting for UST today. That was my guess too. The idea isn't to get to the next game. The idea is to win the regional. The best chance St. Thomas has of winning the regional is with Thomas facing Stevens Point. I'm assuming Thomas would be first out of the pen should Case run out front.

That didn't work out too well for the Tommies.  Case 7  UST 3
Now you explain how you get eliminated and you used your All American 1 meaningless inning.   Ouch
Nothing to explain. It's a matter of mapping a strategy to win it. Doesn't matter if you lost today or tomorrow. I think UST's strategy was plausible. UST's execution of the strategy wasn't successful.

It's not a philosophy that everyone will agree with.

I doubt Dennis Denning would have done that.
Actually, I think Dennis would have done it (where do you think Olean learned a lot of his strategy?)

Its not an uncommon (or dumb) strategy. Darren Erstad (former LA Angel) used the same strategy in this weekend's Big 10(12) tourney and his Nebraska Conrhuskers nearly pulled it off as they advanced to the championship game and forced a "winner takes all" game vs Indiana before falling.
Dennis probably wouldn't have been eliminated from an NCAA tournament with the Midwest Region Pitcher of the Year pitching one inning in the tournament...unless there was an injury.

That's just dumb

the first of (hopefully) many pro signings from this year's senior class:

Did anyone get a chance to see Radmacher? Is he that good?

There's no sarcasm on these boards, Shinetime truly believes that nobody can play with his beloved Point or anyone in the WIAC for that matter.


That probably explains why he said this:
" I can tell you as a pointer fan I'm sweating having to face Benedictine and think their a dangerous team."  ;)


Maybe he forgot the fact that Benedictine gave his beloved Pointers a 13-5 drubbing down in Florida. Might as well add that BU is only one of two Nath-Con teams to beat Conference champ Concordia Chicago in the regular season so UWSP could be walking into a trap game.


Trap game?

I have to go with Biggo too.  But their lineup is impressive, hitting is consistent, defense is solid and the pitching staff is strong and deep, which makes them extremely formidable.  When you win 16-1, 11-1, 11-3, 10-1, etc over the teams that are supposed to be the next-best of your conference, that is pretty close to unbeatable.

Hopefully, everybody gets their 20 games in and the MIAC Playoffs with be the traditional double-elim event. (altho I do kinda like what they are doing in softball this year with everyone in to start)

Who would you say is supposed to be the next best in the conference?

No St. John's definitely didn't stand in their way. What's up with St. John's? How did Hamline sweep them???

St. Thomas seems unbeatable.

Unbeatable??  They have four losses, so clearly they are beatable.  You better bring your A game, but it's not impossible.

Maybe teams just got lucky those four times.

oh man the tommies look awesome. who in the MIAC can stand in their way? maybe bethel can give them some competition or st. john's.

Hey D3guy99 who are you calling out?  You think because you put up a couple of posts in here that you can just call people out?  I never said I'm a Hamline homer, the only homer here is MIACLUV and he's self admitted - he worships at the temple of Chris Olean.  All I was saying was that Hamline was doing some exciting things last year and it was refreshing to see a new team making those kind of waves.  Coach Verdugo has done a heck of a job over there.  I bet he stays on as the head coach.  So just chill out D3guy99.

11
@D3guy99...you must be absolutely crazy leaving Hamline out of your top 4.

12
I don't know if I'd say that Hamline's run last year was lucky, they've been knocking on the door for a few years.  I think Raabe's biggest thing is going to be recruiting, he hasn't done it yet and he'll have to learn pretty quickly.  Other than that, I bet he'll be a great coach for Bethel.

I'm looking forward to catching some of the games in the dome, I think it's a wide open league this year.

In case you haven't already seen, Bethel is going with Brian Raabe as their new head coach.

14
Without giving the name until it's officially announced I'll say it's a former Gopher star and pro player.

15
I hear Bethel made a decision on their new leader.  It will be interesting to see how it goes.
