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.
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.
Well they moved up one or two places in the regional rankings today, and they continue to recieve votes in the d3 poll.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.
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.
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.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.
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.
