Hope's strength of schedule is currently #375 out of 392 teams https://www.d3baseball.com/seasons/2019/schedule?tmpl=sos-template.  You still have to be good to have that kind of record.  As Ralph implied, many voters are most likely waiting to see how they fare against Adrian before placing them in the top 25.  Unfortunately, that is their last series of the year.

I think Hope will do well against Adrian as the wins will give them a confidence boost and the head game will be even between the two teams as Hope will be playing like they will win.

Having followed the MIAA for more than a decade, the Adrian program has demonstrated that they are a perennial national power.

When the Regional Rankings come out, Hope should be in the Rankings, especially because of the winning percentage.

I watched Adrian play down south and they are the real deal. If Hope can split with them, that 25-1 record looks really good.

CWRU defeats Heidelberg 8-1

Spartans are now 5-5 against teams receiving Top 25 votes.  And have the highest SoS in D3.

Woo has a big fall from being ranked #1 in the preseason.  6 ranking in the mid east region.  Need to pick up your game or win the NCAC Tourney Championship. A pool C may be out of the question. A lot of baseball still to be played with a big DH versus Denison this weekend

Pool B in italics.

Teams in bold are not the highest ranked team in the conference in the regional ranking.

IMHO Case is in (either as a B or a C)

Case has an impeccable SOS but I wouldn’t say in as a C yet.  If they take care of business they should be though.

CWRU is 9-5 vs RRO  They should do no worse than 3-1 vs Brandeis this weekend, if all 4 games are played. They have just one game left on sched with RRO JCU left after this weekend. But that game could be lost to OAC makeups.

WashU looks a lock for the first B at 26-5-1 with 2-0 vs CWRU

Whitewater (20-5) and LaCrosse (16-10 but 5-1 vs RRO) look to be CWRU's competition for the second B.  They have a 4-game series with one another this weekend. A split should help CWRU.

Hope had its bubble burst with two losses to Alma and one to Trine, neither of which have winning records.

OK.  May 12th.  Got it!

CWRU was a bit up and down this year.  Let's hope our SOS is enough to get us in!
