The CCIW coaches poll comes out on Wednesday.

NPU isn't exactly easing into the new season. The Vikings open up their 2020 campaign a week from Friday at Birmingham-Southern, where they'll play a three-game set over the course of the weekend down there. The Panthers, who reached the CWS last season and finished with a #4 ranking in the d3baseball.com final poll, are already 2-0 this season.

Greg- any predictions on the coaches poll? I see NCC and IWU as 1 and 2, but after that....
Baseball is not a game that builds character, it is a game that reveals it.

None whatsoever, aside from North Central being a no-brainer #1 pick by everyone other than Ed Mathey.

CCIW Pre-Season Coaches Poll:
 Rank    Institution    Points (1st Pl. Votes)
 1    North Central    62 (7)
 2    Illinois Wesleyan    53 (1)
 3    Millikin    42
 4    Augustana    40
 5    North Park    38
 6    Carthage    36 (1)
 7    Wheaton    29
 8    Carroll    12
 8    Elmhurst    12

I am not sure sure how Carthage got a first place vote from someone if the rest of the league sees them as a 7/8 team? Does someone know somethings the rest of us don't?

I'm much more curious as to who other than Ed Mathey didn't slot NCC as their #1 pick.

They are just channeling Big Poppa: "If they can stay healthy, they could return to the Carthage of old."
