Minnesota State Wins NCAA Division 2 Central Region Tourney

Minnesota State

Minnesota State lost their first chance to clinch a spot in the 2010 NCAA Division 2 College World Series when they lost to St. Cloud State by a score of 16-6.  They came back with a vengeance in the final game, beating the Huskies 20-6 and advance to be among D2’s final 8 teams in Cary, NC.  This will be their 5th time at the Championship Tournament as they also advanced there in 1971, 1979, 1980 (3rd place) & 1986.

Season To Remember

With this win, the Mavericks have run the table so far on the 2010 season and won every important title –

They will enter the D2 College World Series as decided underdogs to the power programs from the South and West but the 19th ranked team will try to make it a clean sweep and they do have by far the easiest bracket to get to the final.

Central Region All-Tournament Team

Minnesota State and St. Cloud State were well represented on the Central Region All-Tournament Team picking up 9 of the 11 spots.

Third Base: KOSUKE HATTORI* MSU
Shortstop: STEVE RINDELAUB SCSU
Outfield: JORDAN SMITH* SCSU

NCAA D2 College World Series Bracket

image

7 of the 8 teams advancing to the NCAA Division 2 College World Series have been identified as Tampa won the South Region.  The South Central will be decided today with undefeated Central Missouri facing off against 1 loss Abilene Christian.

As you can see, Bracket 1 is decidedly harder than Bracket 2.  Assuming Central Missouri advances, that bracket will have the #1 ranked team in UC-San Diego, #2 Tampa & #3 Central Missouri in addition to #9 Georgia College.

Bracket 2 contains #12 Kutztown, #12 Southern Indiana, #19 Minnesota State and #22 Franklin Pierce. 

The teams in Bracket 1 will be cursing their bad draw this year and whichever team makes it out of that Bracket should be the favorite to win the Championship Game but you never know in a 1 game, winner take all format.

    As long as they bracket the southern teams on one side and the northern teams on the opposite it will always be this way. They can make Feb 15 start all they want and it will never make up for the weather. We still had FEET of snow on our field sometime in March and we are the southern most team in our conference.

    Maybe this is the NCAA’s way of trying to be sure a cold weather team gets to play in the final.

    Since I’m a Missouri boy and my least favorite baseball team of all time is representing the NSIC, I suppose I will get on the CMS band wagon. (Warrensburg is actually about 30 miles from me) So, GO MULES!!

    Typical NCAA, isn’t it?

    Instead of playing it straight, they let politics decide things.

    There’s no logical reason to put the weak “cold weather” programs in a mini tournament together, while forcing all the best teams to fight it out in a seperate mini tournament.

    The clear reason is to stack the tournament. One of the top 3 teams will emerge to play a #12 or #15 team in a single game for an adulterated championship.

    There’s no significant television involved here (as opposed to the D-I world series). So, why not just play a straight double-elimination bracket where the highest-ranked team opens against the lowest-ranked, the second-highest against the second-lowest and so on?

    Only the NCAA would create a championship bracket, then a seperate non-championship bracket….and expect everyone to believe a game between the winners of inequitable brackets represents a true champion.

    It would be sweet justice if the hot-weather schools could screw up NCAA hockey the way cold-weather schools pollute baseball.

    The NCAA never seeds for D2 tournaments. There really is no way since you can’t compare teams. Does this bracket though, cross over in the final four?

  4. 4 Baseball May 18, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    Nope..no cross bracket it looks like. Just two four-team tournaments

      That’s just the same way in Division 1 with 2 – 4 team double elimination brackets. The big difference (and it’s a big difference) is that the final 2 teams play a best of 3 in D1 vs. D2 and their 1 game take all approach for the Championship.

  5. 6 WSCDad May 18, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    I think I was wrong about the brackets. I looked back at 09 and they were different than this year. Maybe they just put them in a hat a see what comes out.
