2018 Softball

Recommended Posts

Summit league played their softball tournament over 4 days while the Big Sky planned theirs over 3 days.  I am not sure what the Big Sky conference was thinking about when they know weather, lack of lights, and a 6 team double elimination tournament is hard to pull off over 3 days.  Tough way for UND and the other 2 teams to have their seasons end that way.

Kind of a terrible way to decide an autobid: change the rules in the middle of a tournament*. 

If teams had known going it it would effectively be single-elimination would they have used their pitching differently? Would it have changed the outcome? 

 

*Imagine going to a Frozen Faceoff and hearing, "Folks, the Zamboni broke down and we can't get parts until Monday. Knowing we can't resurface the ice we'll just have a five-round sudden death shoot-out between the teams to decide the autobid."  <---  @MafiaMan head explodes here.

Seems like the SL knows how to do tournaments better, they just have a hard time keeping teams.

If things play out like this year at least we would be playing in Fargo (would be great if we earned the home field)come conference tournament time. A chance for local folks to watch a tournament game

You think we are a keeper.

For the near future we are.

The women beat Rutgers today for their seventh straight win.  Granted, many of their wins are against MEAC and SWAC schools and Rutgers, but a great start.

lets see how long this continues
