Subject to change, and in fact probably already has. :) Millsaps lost to Rhodes, and Case split a DH with...Oberlin. Yikes. Case has a ton of games coming up though.

Yeah.

Also, national rankings aren't necessarily going to look like regional rankings because I'm looking at all games.

Johns Hopkins loses 4 of it's last 6, the Conf championship (won by Haverford), finishes 1/2 game over Haverford in Conf by virtue of a tie and goes 0-4 agst Haverford, yet JHU gets 3 Top 25 votes to Haverfords 2. . . . .  Voters please pay attention.

The vote doesn't ONLY take into account conference games... it looks at a lot of factors. All that really matters in the NCAA Regional Rankings, not the Top 25 Poll. Hopkins is 4th while Haverford in 7th in the latest Mid-Atlantic Regional Ranking.
Baseball is not a game that builds character, it is a game that reveals it.

The top 25 means nothing at this point, only winning your conference and the regional rankings.

Sure. Know that. But as between 2 teams i thought head to head and similar opponents would count more.  Plus I think only Haverford has beaten a present Top 25 Team (TCNJ). But i am not certain on that.

Haverford is now ahead of Hopkins in the regional rankings.

There will probably be teams in the top 25 that won't get bids. Occidental is unlikely to, and Buena Vista, St. Thomas and Wartburg will likely all be on the bubble. There may be a couple more depending on how much the committee adjusts the regional rankings.

A weekend full of upsets didn't help the bubble teams.
