River...I thought you stated you were disappearing (something about being a fair-weather fan...). The sucks take a single midweek game that means absolutely nothing and you come right back and decide to start running your mouth off?

I'd actually like to see 30 conference games...most it'd probably help the conferences RPI vs playing those extra 3 games against bottom feeders in the WCC/Big West/WAC (and yes I do realize that statement is arrogant...but the stupid RPI's numbers don't lie)

With big risk comes big reward (or failure...)

OSU 3-0
UCLA 2-1
Stan 3-0
ASU 3-0
WSU 3-0
Ariz 3-0 (though I'd say 10-0 if they played 10x)

A troll? Ha nice try. I am just wondering why Southern Miss fans freak out over little stuff like that.



I wouldn't call it "freaking out" but if we are in the mix for a national seed why would we be matched up with the overall #1. A match up with UNC or Vanderbilt would make more sense geographically.


The NCAA does not recognize 9-16 teams...past the top 8 national seeds the number 9 is the same as number 16.

Another thing that goes into consideration is avoiding pairing up regional hosts from the same conference in the supers...meaning FSU and GT wouldn't be sent to Virginia for supers. Fullerton wouldn't be sent to Virg. due to geographical, Stetson is a no brainer for Florida...as is Texas-Rice (or TCU instead of Rice...doesn't matter either way).
That only leaves A&M and TCU (I doubt the committee would send a Texas team North...but those would be the only 2, based on Kendall's projections, that would go to Virginia)

In my opinion this seems to be the most complete projections to date...I wouldn't (or couldn't justify) make any changes.


Very nicely done Kendall.

Again Florida - Florida State will attempt to be avoided and Stetson won't be sent to Virginia...especially with a natural host in Florida right there. Sorry but Kendall's pairings just make sense, easiest way for Southern to avoid possibly playing Virginia is clinching a national seed...don't get ahead of yourselves either, remember you have to win your regional.

Scores:

  • The winner this week (opihi man) only got two series right.
  • Tied for second, MostUnknown go three series right (most).
  • Highest average score: Ariz over WSU: 3.67. 14/18 got that one right.
  • Next highest, 9/18 correctly picked UCLA 2-1.
  • Lowest average: USC over ASU 1.33. Nobody got that right; only 6/18 got within one of getting that right.
  • Also low in average score, Ore over Stan: 1.94. 2/18 got that right.
  • Only 3/18 picked OSU 2-1.

A win is a win...I'll take it, I'm surprised I'm even in contention considering this is my first win of the season. My victory was similar to the Beav's against UW. It wasn't pretty and I was outhit but I walked away with the series.

Ducks have to sweep a potential national seeded Oregon State to have a chance IMO.

It's really stupid that Oregon State is penalized for sweeping a 4 game series...nothing like punishing teams for winning...the rest of OSU's schedule is decent too. If they win the PAC-10 and finish the year having won every single weekend (3+ games) series than it's a crying shame if they get shafted from a national seed.

DM, enjoy the game with BeaverBob...I went with him to one of the Cal games, very nice guy I had a great time. I'm still deciding if I wanna go this weekend or just watch the games on TV/ Beaver Nation Online.

A couple of risky picks here:

UCLA 3-0
Stan 2-1
OSU 3-0
WSU 2-1
ASU 3-0

Kendall, as usual, nice article.

As much as it pains me to point this out...I think you mean 20 on Oregon States RPI. Also with Stanford moving back into RPI Top 25 isn't OSU 6-2 vs RPI Top 25...and depending on Arizona's weekend they could be 8-3 vs Top 25 (though I guess since Arizona plays Stanford only one will remain in Top 25). Is this going to be OSU's ticket...hoping the top PAC-10 teams beat the lower PAC-10 teams to raise OSU's vs Top 25 and vs Top 50?

I second Florida Beaver...while the score was surprising in Rice vs Southern Miss the win didn't surprise me. The Florida vs Kentucky game was a huge surprise from every angle. Also Bakersfield shutting out Fresno was an eye opener as well.

OSU 2-1....Pissed off Beavers = Dead D*cks
UCLA 2-1...They have the better pitching staff, I see them getting it done
Cal 2-1...Rivalry games, Appel will win, Furd will lose the rest
Ariz 3-0...Huskies streak of stealing 1 ends
USC 3-0...this one's a stretch but the Trojans have been playing some motivated ball and WSU has been up and down all year

2 sweeps...I wonder if that even gives me a shot

Does Oregon State have to worry about losing a host spot if they can't get it together?

It feels weird to root for the Sun Devils in PAC-10 play but a Devil win is just as important as a Beaver win. Devils win then the Beavs can still win the PAC-10 by taking one tomorrow (barring a Schmuck implosion today...which had been very characteristic this year for the Schmucks)

The Beavers will be a 1 seed...they won't send Arkansas to Corvallis as a 1 seed. There isn't a team that can be a 1 seed over the Beavers that wasn't fully capable of hosting themselves (especially with 3 West Coast regionals)
