NCAA Division 2 Baseball Rankings – 4/27/09

NCAA Baseball Logo

The College Baseball News, Ping!Baseball and NCBWA Regional rankings have been released for this week:

  • The College Baseball News poll has a new #1 team in the nation as Barry takes over their #1 spot.  Previous #1, Southern Arkansas, drops into a tie for 2nd with Ashland.  Last week’s #2 team, Mesa State, took a big tumble after losing a series to Metro State and then splitting with New Mexico Highlands.  Delta State made a huge jump up in the their poll moving from no votes all the way to #15 after taking 2 of 3 from Southern Arkansas.  Representing the Northern Sun Conference, Wayne State moved up one spot to #24.  This despite 2 NSIC schools not completing their ballots for the week.   College Baseball News Ranking

  • The Ping!Baseball poll also saw the same change at the top as Barry takes over their #1 spot.  They did this with a win over Rollins and taking 2 of 3 from a very tough Tampa team.  Southern Arkansas fell to the #3 spot after holding down the top spot in the Ping poll for 10 straight weeks.  For as much grief as some people give the Ping poll (for example, placing St. Cloud State in the Top 30 ahead of Wayne State) they really got it right with Delta State.  Last week the CBN poll didn’t rank Delta at all and Ping had them at #5.  After beating Southern Arkansas, Ping seems to be closer to the right spot for the Statesmen.  That said, they finally took St. Cloud State out of the poll and instead of replacing them with Wayne State they put the Northern Sun’s 2nd place team, Minnesota State, in the the #27 spot.  While the Mavericks are a deserving team and just split 4 games with Wayne State I’d still put Wayne ahead of them.  Ping!Baseball Ranking

  • The National College Baseball Writers published their Regional Poll.  The NCAA Regional poll is much more meaningful but it’s still interesting to see what the writers think.  Mesa State maintains the number 1 spot but for the first time it’s not unanimous as Wayne State took a 1st place vote.  Colorado State – Pueblo dropped 2 spots after getting swept in 4 games by Nebraska – Kearney over the weekend.  Winona State moved ahead of Concordia which seems overdue since they are 3 spots ahead of them in the NSIC standings.

    I have to disagree with the shake-up in the Ping Poll…if you’re saying that Delta State should be up there with the numerous losses they have because they are a good team, then Southern Arkansas should still be the number one team….the Muleriders are probably one of the hottest teams in the country right now, and they still have 9 losses.

    Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone
    with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
