We had a thread about over achieving teams , which teams do you think didn't perform as well as expected so far?

UTAH- 2-3 to start out is rough. The loss to TN after being up 5-0 is worrying (as is the stamina of Viramontes, the only true pac #1 caliber pitcher).

BYU - 1-4 start (including losses to W. MI, Nebraska and oregon state). This was the 19th ranked team, but obviously the loss of Bull hurt more than some anticipated.

Stanford - 2-4 start. run rule loss to byu also on this list. Loss to Seattle U. I only watched one of their games (loss to byu) but they looked bad. Overunning balls in the OF, not cleanly fielding grounders etc. Allister has her work cut out.

A little shocked by Illinois starting 1-4 considering they were a tournament team last season. Utah and Kentucky need improvement for sure, but the biggest upset had to be Ole Miss getting no hit by Lipscomb.

Yeah, ole miss - that's like losing to UIC in the regional :)

Honestly, I didn't expect much from MI and they hung in their with FL. But, you're right that their performance didn't really scream 18th ranked team.

With MO, I don't how high expectations were. If you listened to Earlywhine they were going to the WCWS, but 2-3 at this point was what I expected (although I wouldn't have pegged a 12 run loss to OR).

Texas for sure. Surprised they didn’t lose to incarnate word but losing to Colorado state and Wisconsin doesn’t look good. Granted they aren’t slouch teams but I wasn’t impressed. Their problem will hand down be hitting, Janae Jefferson can’t do it alone.
Was very impressed with Houston though.
