Yeah, Dr. I am hoping they can turn it around quickly.

The other thing that didn't help Ott was that the OAC as a whole was down.  Lots of .500 teams this year including two of the teams that made the OAC tournament.  The records of the 2nd-4th place teams didn't do them any favors.  Normally you could have counted on something more like Etta being 28-12 and BW/JCU being 25-15 or thereabouts.   
BW has been good but really only since the 2012 season. Before that they were a middle of the road team. Of coarse that is when Coach Harrison showed up and has done good things with the program. I hope this is just a blip on the radar for BW and not a return to form.

I think if they could have pulled off a win at La Roche, they could have made it. It looked like head to head may have been important.

There were tes from other regions left home as well. See Otterbein of the OAC, 32-11. Also see Wooster last year, over 30 wins and they stayed home. Happens almost every year to some team. Clearly SOS is important. Part of the problem is pool A bids from bad conferences. Not sure there is an answer to this. It is what it is.

They did have two or three games scheduled with CWRU that were lost to weather.
true but IMO, they wasted three games in Florida. I can see playing one game against North Central but not Three.

Have you tried reaching out to other coaches in the OAC or NCAC. They may have pitchers looking for spots.

Well they moved up one or two places in the regional rankings today, and they continue to recieve votes in the d3 poll.
And I agree, they should not wait until the end to schedule a tough opponent. Looks like they have done that for a few years now.
With Ott being left home hopefully we will see a stronger schedule for them next year. Played one game against a BAD D1 team and then 3 against North Central. Did not play very strong teams when they went down south. Hopefully they change their MO next year.

That would be a good move for the WIAC.
But I agree, I do not think CSS will move.

Case played the #2 schedule. I wouldn't take their number to be comparable to the rest of the region that is limited in what they can accomplish SOS wise.

I didn't mean to devalue that point. It's just my interpretation of taking that into account that I value the .60 difference in BA and 1.25 difference in ERA more than the #2 SOS. Being a West poster I'm also a little biased with the SOS since the West gets bashed for that and there is not a ton those teams can do about it.
But that difference in ERA MAY be linked directly to SOS. WHat wouild Case's ERA be if they did not play the SOS they did. I do not believe you can just throw out SOS. I believe the 2 are inexorably linked. You cannot look at one with out looking at the other.

Welcome Back, I was truly Surprised that OWU got in. Happy but surprised. Losing two in the tourney like that, I thought several teams would jump them. I thought OWU would have to get the The championship game to have a shot. I think that if OWU was in the same spot last year they would not have gotten in. The Primary criteria must have been enough.

The Mock Selection Committee picked 11 of 14 plus the 2 Pool B Bids (Emory and SJF).


Do they seed teams when they come off the board or after the regions are set? If it not until the regions are set I can see why SFJ might have a higher seed than Case, even if Case got the B.

I believe CWRU got the other B, which is somewhat odd because SJF is a 2 seed and CWRU a 3.

OWU and Case both get in. Do not know how each was ranked in the final secret ballot, but glad both got in.  They are the 3rd seed in the west while OWU is the 5th in Washington.
Marietta goes south to GA as a number 4.

I was really surprised when OWU received a pool B bid. I have to thank Wooster for winning the tournament, after OWU was eliminated. Good luck to both in the regional. Congrats to former NCAC member Case Western reserve for making the tournament as well.

I would like to congratulate all Seniors on all teams. It is an amazing feat to finish up 4 years of playing college baseball at an NCAC institution. You all should be proud. It does not make a difference if you were a four year started or a spot/bench player in your senior year. I am proud of each and everyone.
