SJF Cards...pretty good run for your cards..take a peek at this.  Regardless of the AQ at the end of the year if your cardinals keep it up, they look great for the tournament.  Their SOS is as usual...really high.

I am hoping Fisher can make some hay here against what appears to be the weaker part of their schedule. They have already won 4 straight against Houghton and Canton, and now get Elmira and Utica. That hurts the SOS, but could boost that win total. Fingers crossed they perform well down the stretch, but i am not sure about an at large.

GO FISHER!!!

Their SOS is so high that they should be OK.  BUT...they certainly have had beyond strong cases the past couple of years and didn't get it...(see Alvernia last year..yikes.)  Fisher has scheduled well and was rewarded with the number 2 slot in the region.  It isn't close in regards to other teams in their league.  But winning the conference tournament would put all these concerns to sleep.  Your right on the ease  of schedule but all the teams have these games in their leagues.

At least Fisher is winning these games. 7 straight with a sweep of Utica today. They still have 1 more with Utica and 2 with Houghton. If they win those 3 that will be 28 wind and two more games with Rochester and Keystone.
GO FISHER!!!

What is the reason that Ithaca is still competing in the E8 for baseball and not the LL?

Ithaca baseball was indeed to move to LL along with most other Bomber sports (squash, men's golf, gymnastics excepted at onetime). Shift from E8 effective for 1917-18. But baseball stayed on as affiliate E8 member. Could be IC and venerable baseball skipper George V. felt it owed that to E8 since departure would mean E8 loses NCAA automatic qualifying baseball bid. Canton came aboard E8 as affiliate member in baseball to give E8 sufficient numbers in '17. Liberty League already had AQ numbers for baseball.  Going back to early 2000s there was no E8 AQ in baseball, not that it held Fisher, Stevens and particularly baseball proud IC from national attention. Just a thought.

I know several members of the LL are unhappy with the league office for allowing this arrangement; but as far as I know it is through. Ithaca will be playing Liberty League baseball next spring.
