As a Cru alumni, I can unequivocally say I am fired up for this hiring. Coach Mann appears to have hit a home run here. I am excited to see where he can take the program, and I believe the ASC just got that much tougher.  Welcome Coach Stawski!

Tyler defeats Rhodes to force a winner take all to go to the series!

??? ??? ??? Trinity despite a 33-9 and overall record with a .786 winning percentage did not make it to the regional's. They had their opportunity to make it by winning on the field and they did not.

WHY?

1 - Who they played. LOW SOS. Beating bad teams does not help
2 - Who they lost to. Several losses to teams with losing records. Losing to bad teams does not help
3 - When the lost. Failure to win their Conference Tournament and losing and going 2 and Q. and not having a winning record in the last 10 games. Losing 5 of their last 6 games.

To be fair - when I asked the question, I was operating under the presumption #3 was irrelevant based upon old criteria. #2 goes for UT Tyler and CTX as well. #1 is a huge discrepancy, and really the only factor that mattered when I made the post.

Based upon the criteria I know now, I no longer question why they didnt get in.

Glad to see you back dp643!

Thanks Ralph. I have always been lurking, just not much posting! Looking forward to the regional.

Can someone chime in with the Pool C criteria and how CTX, UTT matched up with Trinity in that regard (maybe Ralph)? Im still a little perplexed at how Trinity got behind them in the regional rankings. Trinity was still 4-2 against the three playoff teams from the west, despite their slow finish.

A few things to point out here...

1. SOS was a huge difference between these schools.  CTX- 31. UTT- 51, Trinity- 187
2. You mentioned Trinity was 4-2 against the West playoff teams.  While true, they weren't up against TLU in the Pool C running, only CTX and UTT, which they only went 2-0 against.
3. As Ralph mentioned, Trinity went 5-5 down the stretch (not including the SCAC tourney) and that included losses to Southwestern, Schreiner, and McMurry.  Not a good impression on the committee. 
4. I'm not sure if this is taken into consideration but the ASC is a much better conference top to bottom than the SCAC, with UTT sweeping TLU as well.

Im on board now, especially after Ralph chiming in. I was not aware of that part of the criteria. When I made my original post, I had also forgotten about UTT sweeps over La Verne and TLU.

Ok, that makes sense then. UTT also swept La Verne and TLU this season. ASC probably got big boosts from those two series sweeps.

I havent posted much on the football boards, but I wanted to get a feel for those that saw both UMHB games vs Linfield and HSU as to whom you would rather play in the second round (if we beat Redlands of course). Ill shutup and look forward to the responses.

What is this dude crying about? Trinity didn't even start their normal three starters in this championship series. The kid that started game 2 tonight was starting his second game all season. No doubt the better team won. Congrats to Trinity. Very well deserved and I have always had much respect for the program.

I hope Trinity can finish this out. The way they have won in the post season has been remarkable.

I would agree with the ASC comments above. An interesting team to watch may be Hardin Simmons. After starting 2-6 they have gone 13-1 in their last 14 games. Again, this is against lesser teams, but still noteworthy. They also wont play CTX or UT Tyler in conference play (how in the world did that happen?). Their remaining schedule is fairly weak. They could end up with a pretty impressive record when this is all said and done due to their weak schedule.

Too many teams in the conference to play all opponents in the regular season, so HSU drew the "long straw" this year.    Wonder if the conference might move to an East and West setup once McMurry and Belhaven complete their provisional D3 period.    I wouldn't solve the problem of not playing everyone, but it would provide each team a core set of opponents they would play each year in addition to a few teams from the other division.

I figured as much. I think it would make sense to go back to an East/West setup where you play everyone in your division and a couple of rotating crossover matchups.

I would love if UMHB could host one of these years. If Tyler is in the running, I dont see why UMHB couldnt be if they wanted the bid.

Dont count out UMHB as a surprise team this year. This was a young team last year that has most of the lineup returning this year. A key addition to look for is Kreece Cooper returning from injury this year. He was a stud on the mound in 2013. Can't wait to see the team kick off the season tonight at TLU.
