Again awesome column!! Any answers to why there will be 4 pool B bids and 14 pool C bids this year?? The D3baseball landscape seems to be moving away from the independent conferences in the past several years. Just seems odd that we are back to 4 pool B's this year after only have 2 Pool B's a year ago.
I asked a couple of different ways, trying to get the answer that is, "The newly formed SAA." Once the SAA gets its AQ, we'll be back to where we were or perhaps down to one Pool B.
The Pool B teams in 2013 that the NCAA provided. Needless to say, we found numerous errors.
