Coastal Carolina 25 home (3 road)
Stetson 24 home (0 road)
Kennesaw St 23 home (2 home)
Auburn 21 home (1 road)
Georgia 19 home (1 road)


I don't agree with the purple yahoo on much, but I do on this... to some degree

Seriously?  I feel like you are attacking me directly and my post was a general statement about midwestfp's serious unfair thing he or she has.[smile]

You make it sound like people who think striving for fairness are idiots.

So, you sort of attacked people first.

He's an extremist, but there is a point there. One that NCAA baseball apparently has addressed to some degree

Striving is one thing, expecting is another, especially when people and weather are involved.  Plus, if everything was fair and equal, then people would have nothing to strive for, our initiative to be the best would die and the world would crumble under the weight of fairness and a trophy just for showing up.

The word liberal could have been left out, but it was not meant viciously, heaven forbid!  CF though added wacko to the reply, and that was a direct offense.  I think CF secretly likes me.[biggrin][tongue]

I get what you are saying, but as a fan of a mid-major school in the South, I don't care that we have this "advantage."  The Big Ten had the NCAA change the rule to reward road teams in baseball.  I really don't care if they did it to softball, but when the big leagues up north load up on home OOC games in basketball and play on the road only once or twice, it builds a huge competitive disadvantage to mid-major schools that have to play mostly on the road OOC.  I don't feel sorry for you.  If they change the RPI rule in softball I might personally spearhead the effort to force the same "penalty" for playing a lot of home games in basketball.  At least in the spring sports it is due to weather and not greed -- as is basketball.  You're right, the system does stink.

I don't hate on Louisiana for being able to sell their program in whatever ways it can. And speaking of the Cajuns -- see you in Mobile this weekend!  Go Jags!

Puhleeese. Midwestfp is not a Minnesota fan. He is maybe a midwest fan of some school who is against the SEC. He is not a Gopher fan. If you know our coach at all the last thing she allows anyone to do is make excuses. we follow her in this regard. Thats what our program is all about. We just play the game. We are proud of what we have done so far. We will work hard to keep it going. Lets talk about the RPI. Go Gophs.

Auburn plays 28 games against teams in the RPI top 30 and 18 are on the road or at a neutral site. Forgive me for not feeling guilty for playing a lot of non-conference games at home in beautiful weather.

How many of those are OOC? Not hating, just curious.

Have to say this year is a little of an anomaly. We're usually just have slightly more home games OOC than away but I guess we couldn't work out any tournament entries this year on the road. I know they are trying to limit flights right now so that may also be an issue. It should be a good series this weekend, and I don't think we're taking you lightly after last weekend.

What about baseball? They finish their season nearly a month after softball does.

Also stupid.  Also the fact that they have a 10-day tournament is stupid as well.  I had to actually wikipedia who won the CWS last year.

Coastal Carolina.  And I should've remembered that because of the big deal everyone made out of that win.  I think I only watched 2 or 3 of the games during that entire series.

8 and only 3 of those were at home. OU, Washington, Ohio State, Illinois, and BYU were either in Mexico or Tampa

That would be the latest addition to the Sun Belt Conference, the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers.

The championship series is best of three so you could only have watched three. CC beat Arizona 2-1.

Just saw a tweet from the university this afternoon that we averaged 2010 in attendance for each of the 15 playing dates at home this year. If your teams were some of those who attended those games earlier this year we thank you for your attendance and hoped you "passed a good time cher". :-)
