Replying to BigPoppa's question last spring, "Anybody see it finishing any different this year? Can anybody in the UMAC play with St. Scholastica?"

Bethany Lutheran moved up in the UMAC from 6th to 3rd and looked pretty competitive against Scholastica - Bethany led 3-0 going into the 9th in the Friday game of an April weekend series, but couldn't hold on, losing 4-3. I predict that Bethany will hand St. Scholastica at least one conference loss in 2007, and contend for the conference championship.

Does it still look like Bethany can pull of an upset (or two) this year? Somebody needs to step up and challenge St. Scholastica for the UMAC title. Who has the best shot to knock them off?

2007 will belong to St. Scholastica again. They lost only 1 starter from last years team that advanced to the Midwest region and won their opening round game against Stevens Point. Surprisingly the Saints are not ranked even though they were ranked as high as 3 in the country last year despite losing only one starter.

Bethany Lutheran will most likely be second and have the only chance of taking a game from the Saints

Don't count out Northwestern out of the race to beat Scholastica.  Northwestern took 2 out of 3 from Bethany last year, and like Scholastica lost very few, though quality, players from last years squad.

update:  Clearly, CSS is still the class of the conference, but with a 2-1 Bethany victory, perhaps parity is not quite as far away as once thought.

Its strange to see St. Scholastica in the 5th spot.... even if they havent played a game.  Do any of these teams have a shot at beating CSS even once this year?

Northwestern and Bethany Lutheran have been the next best the last 2 years. Bethany Lutheran even managed a win last year on a walk off homerun. I wouldnt count on either of them winning one though, I believe both of them are down this year and the rest of the UMAC isnt very good. The thing that might help these teams is that CSS as of right now has to play 25 games by May 3 their last scheduled game (about 25 days) so maybe a team can steal a game from CSS since they will be averaging a game a day.

Maybe Scholastica should play split squad games against some of those UMAC teams... A. To get their games in and B. To make the games more competitive.

Would that even be legal, cause the more I think about it, the more it sounds like a great idea.  :)

Yea would be a great idea if you can win every game but not likely so not really a great  idea. Im not sure if it would be legal but dont see why it wouldnt be
