Cards, I like this team a lot but I also recall a team with D'Amato, Johnson a big righty who transferred in, Bostick, Osterman, Kyrniski (spelling), Rush that stole a ton of bases and beat Marietta at their field in a regional (who won it all) that would love to play this current team! That team was loaded. The Cards put a tournament team on the field every season, it's just a matter of getting to 30 wins and getting some love, which, they honestly don't get a lot of. They are a hard team to slot because of the lack of AQ. It would be nice if they could play Cortland. This team is very good and in my opinion deserve to be in. Even if they get in, the possibility always exists that they could get shipped out which isn't really a big deal to them. I looked at Oswego from last season (and I understand this is little bearing) but, they got an at large quite easily and this Fisher team frankly has more going for it. Not one bad loss in the 8 losses. Marietta, Oswego, Stevens, Haverford, Ohio Northern, those are great programs. Like their chances but again, this is my opinion.
Ohio Northern while a better program under the new coach, Does not exactly have the pedigree, to be called a a great program, And they are not playing well this year. They are barely above .500. But that loss should not keep the Cards out.
Just remember Pool C and B are against the nation and not the region.
