Rank the Mideast Region

(1/49) > >>

Spence:
In this thread, we hopefully discuss what we think about who the best teams in the Mideast region are, and rank. I guess I should be clear that we're not necessarily talking about the official regional rankings here (which one consider regional games), though certainly those regional rankings would be an appropriate topic for discussion.

I guess I'll start with a top 10 just to kick it off. Boy, a lot of teams with really good starts.

1. Marietta -- very close between the top 3 or 4, but close isn't enough to knock down a 2-time defending champ yet, especially one that is undefeated in the region and played a very strong schedule down south
2. Manchester -- 1 win in 3 games that could have gone either way on a freezing weekend in Tiffin, undefeated otherwise
3. Heidelberg -- winning 2 of 3 vs. Manchester at home not enough to overcome a couple of losses to not so great teams
4. Washington & Jefferson -- hard to tell much, but undefeated and coming off a big year
5. Mount Union -- rainout cut them a break on their FL schedule, good record, but not many signature wins
6. Otterbein -- even though they haven't proven much yet, mainly on talent
7. Wooster -- No idea what to do with them, but beating Wheaton at least says something
8. La Roche
9. Baldwin-Wallace
10. DePauw

Oops, my mistake.  I saw a board labeled "Rank the Region" and mistook it for "rank the regions".  Looked like an opportunity to jump on the NESCAC (northeast) bandwagon.  As Gilda Radner would have said, "Oh, never mind."

Also not the right sport. :)

Spence I cannot disagree with your assessment. I had hoped to put OWU in there but after there spring trip I cannot. I think as the season goes on BW may drop off this list. I saw one game of theirs in Florida. They have some impressive players but I do not think they are quite there yet. There short stop is quite good.

They had trouble hitting OWU pitching, they only had 5 hits. As the season goes on they may heat up and it could have been just one game.

In response to a post you made in another thread. It is not just one OWU pitcher that needs to cut down on the walks. After the spring trip I would say all of them have to.

Dr. Acula:
Ott could move up just by default this week. Their FL schedule is the weakest I've seen. 5 teams with losing records last yr, two of which won 8 and 11 games, respectively. I'd be shocked if they go anything worse than 1 loss against that slate.  That's the problem with the late spring break I guess.
