As I sit here in Hong Kong waiting for my flight back to Detroit, I gandered at this week's rankings for D1 SB. The Tournament Committee does not ENTIRELY use any of the 3 major rankings. Other factors, such as geography, play a large part of the decision making.
We did not finish the season very strong. The losses to Ill and Wiskey certainly hurt us and our chances for hosting a Super. My guess is that we do NOT host a Super. Here are the 3 rankings:
RPI: We dropped one spot from 17 to 18. Minny is 17 and Nebraska is 19.
USA Today / Coaches: We dropped from 7 to 10. Minny is 15 and Nebraska is 18.
ESPN / USA Softball: We droppeed from 6 to 11. Minny is 16 and Nebraska is 18.
We will certainly be in the top 16 and host a Regional. My guess is that Minny or Nebraska will also host a Regional as well (geography will help them somewhat).
