RE: AAC baseball preview for 2018
Who does everyone have on Friday, and how are you feeling about it?

Pirates are hosting Western Carolina. Played them once in Greenville last year, and narrowly escaped 5-4. Hoping we can take 2 of the 3 games.

RE: AAC baseball preview for 2018
Is 2018 the Year that Wichita State Baseball Breaks Through Again?

Short answer: No.

Quote:The Shockers’ road to being a national power once again will continue beyond 2018, but there is plenty of reason to suggest that 2018 might, at the very least, mark a return to postseason contention for the program.

There's that pesky National Power label again...

UC plays a DH at San Diego (against California game 1, then San Diego) and that appears to be two tough opponents for the first day.

San Diego is picked 2nd in the WCC and California is picked 5th in the PAC 12.

They play Cal again on Saturday and finish up against San Diego on Sunday.

Well a national championship and not missing the ncaa's for 20 straight years will get a program mentioned that way. Now if they said that about ORU baseball we'd all laugh. . . I mean that's like saying WSU is a national power in basketball.

Shocker basketball, the ORU baseball.

5/10

You would have gotten 6/10 but I had to deduct a point for putting the board in grave danger of receiving my wall-o-text again referencing Wichita State Basketball's voluminous National Power media references.

You need to stick to numbers, analytics, and metrics. Your analogies suck.

Damn, you're right. ORU baseball is way better than WSU basketball. I honestly insulted them.

WSU basketball:
Since 2006 6 of 12 years in the NCAA
Since 1998 6 of 20 years in the NCAA, largest sreak 5
Conference championship since 1998, 6

ORU baseball:
Since 2006 10 of 12 years in the NCAA
Since 1998 18 of 20 years in the NCAA, longest streak 15
Conference championships since 1998, 17.

My bad, didn't mean to get shocker fans hopes up. You're clearly not on ORU baseballs level.

You literally just attempted to make a statistical correlation between the MVC in basketball and the Summit conference in baseball. Have you been drinking all afternoon? You're way off the blacktop brother.

RE: AAC baseball preview for 2018
A fun side fact: Half the Summit league resides in Canada. I suspect they play some sort of hybrid baseball/hockey off-shoot. Tulsa is basically Miami, FL. to most of that league... In 2017 the Summit league was rated 29th in conference RPI. That's 3 spots from dead last in the nation. ORU is the NY Yankees of the Summit - which isn't saying much...
