Great Job on the Mid-Atlantic preview.  19 transfers for Keystone!  Seems like alot, especially for D3.

Thanks!

Great start to conference weekend in the Mid-Atlantic region with Ramapo v Rowan and Haverford v JHU - too bad they are on the same day.

I likely missed schools so let me know.  I know the coaches voting consider more then just these numbers (e.g. teams they have seen, quality wins, poor loses, out of region performance, teams in their conference, friends etc..) but these are just raw numbers to start the analysis.

Here is the link to the FAQ on criteria for the Regional Rankings.

http://www.d3baseball.com/interactive/faq/ncaaTournament#pool

The FAQ was updated in 2010.  The 2013 Handbook has not been released yet, but thisis close enough for general discussion purposes.

Off line, I was contacted for my thoughts on who was next on the list below Neumann.

As I review the previous teams in the Regional Ranking, Willy Pat and De Sales. let's look at what they have done compared to Neumann.

Neumann went 3-9 versus Regionally Ranked teams:   Kean - L; Alvernia W & L; St John Fisher W & L; Keystone 5 losses; Ramapo  W;  Rowan  L.  Neumann's SOS is #60 (0.545)   in D-3 and had an in-region record of 24-13.

William Paterson went 5-5 versus Regionally Ranked teams:  Endicott W;  Ramapo W,W,W, L;  Kean L, L;  Rowan W, L, L.  WPU's SOS is #44 (0.552) and had a in-region record of 26-13.

DeSales went 2-4 versus Regionally Ranked teams:  Misericordia   2 wins and 3 losses; Kean L.  DeSales also lost to West regionally ranked TLU and Trinity which are secondary criteria.   DeSales' SOS is #157 (0.518) with an in-region record of 28-9.

You can almost make the case that WPU is the next team to come onto the table.

My advice to DeSales would be to play a tougher schedule, including more NJAC schools.
