Magic,
  just saw Plattsburgh(baseball) on Pardon the Interruption - they had tying run on 2nd when a muffed pickoff attempt let him come all the way home sliding by the plate; throw went by the catcher but rebounded in time to tag the runner just before he stretched for the plate. National coverage!

It was featured on MLB.com as well.  Missing in this explanation is that the runner completely missed home plate with his slide.  He was trying to get back to the plate when the tag occured...

On the d3hoops.com mock selection show last night, they seemed pretty confident Plattsburgh was going to make it.  I suppose as early as Rochester came off the board, Plattsburgh had a better chance.  They hit on 18 out of the 20 Pool C bids.

Cardinals didn't have to wait long to find out they are dancing!!! Playing in the Williams pod against Gwynedd Mercy.

Magic must be looking forward to the "dance" if Plattsburgh keeps rolling!

I'm hoping we keep rolling. Had a little blip over the weekend that could have cost us hosting rights but turned out it didn't matter, when Oswego beat Brockport, so we head down there. I don't want to be waiting on an NCAA at large bid, so winning the YAC tournament is the solution to that problem. Tough tournament this week, though, as all 6 teams are capable of winning the title.

Plus none of the six can count on an at-large bid so all are playing to make the NCAA tourney...

Interesting that Rochester jumped Plattsburgh in this week's rankings.  They beat a pair of 14-8 teams (Chicago and Washington U).  I'm still learning the intricacies of the basketball NCAA process.  What's the explanation for Rochester's jump over the Cardinals?

This is much more fun than the smoke filled room.  Easy to imagine Wesleyan beats Williams in a NESCAC final.  Adrian beats St. Norbert in their final.  Is St. Norbert now out of the tournament? :o

Just as it is with the Div I Pairwise, it's fun to look at the standings after each night's games and see how things have changed.

After Magicman's Cardinals losing 2 straight last weekend.
The SUNYAC is open for the taking.

Excited to see what teams will show up down the stretch.

Let's GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I don't think you can say the league is "open for the taking" until someone beats Oswego.  They have a two game lead in the standings now.  At the moment, I would say there is a battle for second place, but the regular season title is Oswego's to lose...

Thought the 5th foul on Patron was called very late and I thought it was a block.  Tough break for the Cardinals, but they still should have forced overtime.  The turnover under the basket with two seconds left was a tough play.  Definitely a foul.  Cards will rebound tonight!

What about Middlebury's start screamed 5 place jump in the rankings?  The win over Endicott?  I know, I know.  It's early and the rankings don't mean a whole lot!

So is d3hockey.com going to be able to produce a PairWise rankings (similar to what is done for Div I) that will all but take the guesswork out of the NCAA selection process?  I still haven't decided if I think this is good or bad...

SNC National Champs!

One of the best games I've ever seen.  Thought the major against Salve Regina was a horrible call (I've seen replays since the game and I still think it was a horrible call), and I thought the officials in general were a little favorable to St. Norbert, but it was not the reason they won the game.  The game was pretty even for the most part, but there were sections that St. Norbert dominated.  I don't remember Salve having any periods of dominance.  By the time the game ended, I thought St. Norbert was in much better shape conditioning wise and Salve looked gassed.

Great game and congratulations to the Knights.  That's twice I've seen St. Norbert in 2OT games in Lake Placid!

I would think that Patron not playing the first semester would make him a long-shot to win POY.  But, he's only a junior so he'll be back next year!

In light of the weather, is Plattsburgh already in Philadelphia?  It would seem too late to leave now as the storm is already affecting areas south of us...
