Post Re: Sun Belt 2017 Softball Tournament
our best bet is for USA to make the quarterfinal against us and hope Costal can make it to the quarterfinal game against ULL, that way if we were to lose semifinal game against ULL we just have to beat Costal to get into the championship game... the good news about this format is we only need to beat ULL once (but it has to be when it counts, in the championship game, we can go 1-1 against ULL in the tourney so as long as the loss to them is in the semifinal game)...at least it isn't like some double elimination formats where we would be requited to beat ULL twice in the championship series to be declared the champion to 'knock' them out of the tournament

Edit: I'm a big fan of the format it would just be heart breaking to beat ULL in the semifinal game and turn around and lose the championship game to them

Not sure I understand your scenario. The first 2 games are single elimination, then they go to double elimination until the championship game; where it's winner take all.

all I was saying was in a lot of sub-college tournment formats the championship game is double elimination....in that kind of setup if we were the team who came out of the loser's bracket and beat beat ULL Saturday at 1 we would have to play them again in a double header to see who is named champion...

...in this format.... it doesn't matter whether you enter the championship game with 1 loss or undefeated (everything is erased) which is convenient for us bc it's unlikely we would beat ULL twice in a row in back to back

I have a bad feeling that our big takeaway from this tournament is that unlike football our defense can not generate scoring for our team

glass half full: if we beat GaSt we get to play ULL and if we lose to ULL we likely get to play USA and if we beat USA we get to play ULL again

win or lose against ULL and our RPI should be okay either way due to them in the top 25

USA/GaSt have borderline top 50 RPIs... the more games those 2 teams play against us and ULL the better chance they have of getting an RPI into the top 50 and thus helping our RPI too... I like our chances slightly better against GaSt than UTA only becuase I think getting into the loser's bracket after our first game will kill all bobcat morale

We really need to make it to the championship game, preferably by winning first two games, but even through the losers bracket.

Even a loss in the title game should keep our RPI in the 20s and help us get into a Regional with a mid national seed, like 7-10, and improve our chances to make the World Series.

I pray we can get into the A&M Regional that would be a nice fit, and close enough to travel.

One advantage we have this year, is ULL knows we can beat them, and if we use common sense and walk Sanders, we have a good chance against them if Rupp is on her game and don't hand the game to them with errors.

the good: I like that the Jaguars got shutout and still pushed the Cajun ace to 120 pitches... for what it is worth anyway with underhand softball...maybe she will at least be mentally drained for tomorrow's game

the bad: they have 2 other very decent pitchers

the ugly: it doesn't matter who is on the mound we only have 2-3 batters that can hit SOMETIMES
