The ladies have an RPI ranking of 25th and 28th in the USA TODAY Coaches Poll.  It would be great if they win the MVC tournament, but should still receive a bid, win or lose, to the NCAA tournament with that ranking.

Good stuff. I'm gonna try and make the game on Saturday. Watching Newman pitch is a real treat.

+1


Selection is at 8pm on ESPN2.  Drake RPI May 6th was #23.  https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/softball/d1/ncaa-womens-softball-rpi
Pretty good chance the 'Dogs will go to number 10 Florida or 11 Northwestern.
Drake is currently ranked #25 in the Coaches Poll.  That COULD send Drake to Texas, LSU or Florida.  https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/softball/d1/usa-today/nfca-coaches

SIU has a RPI of 42.  The loss in the semis to UNi doesn't help an at-large invite.

Drake vs Georgia, FRIDAY 6PM on ESPN2, at U of Minnesota (regional).  They get screwed again!  Ranked 23rd in the country, basically gave them a 39 seed.  Georgia is ranked 17th.
Prove them wrong Bulldogs!!!

SIU gets in and will go to #16 Northwestern.  Much easier bracket than Drake received.  Nice to see two teams from the MVC, but Drake got screwed!!

What a joke!

They play on Friday... do they play again on Saturday if they win? If they lose? (Not wildly familiar with the softball NCAA regional stuff)
