they will, but unfortunately they have to play each other in the super regional.  When I saw that I instantly called b.s.

There is a bright side if they have to play each other in the super regional.  It means we'll be guaranteed having a team going to Omaha.

Hate how baseball is whining on Twitter. Don't go 0-2 against A&T. Don't lose five out of six home conference games in May. Don't blow a 4 run eighth inning lead. Nobody to blame but themselves, and yet acting like the NCAA should just hand them a bid.
yeah, I saw that.  Wasn't a good look.
Well, I didn't expect us to get into the tournament, but you gotta admit that having only 2 teams make it from the league is a little ridiculous. Hope the two tear a new asshole for some P5 teams.

Who do we lose off this year's team?
Jarrett, Sherer, Nichting and also likely Laws and Netzer are the important losses.
Substantial. Hopefully some young guys will be ready to step up.
I'm counting on it. Word is that we have about 20 in the incoming class.
BTW, Southern Miss had 8 more players than we did on their roster. If you've watched Hibbs' interviews about what we need the words "lengthen our lineup" are familiar to you.
I don't really understand this.  How long has he been the coach?  Did he not know this when we moved from the JV league to Big Boy baseball in CUSA?
Hibbs has been around baseball for a very long time. I'm pretty sure he's figured out that more players=more options=more chance of winning. I'd guess that its just marginally more difficult to convince guys who are only going to see the field in specific situations  to sit on our bench than say, Chapel Hill's bench.

I don't know how we are versus other schools on getting our baseball players academic scholarship money, I know last year's national champions are very willing to get their baseball players academic scholarships.  It would seem like that would also be a factor.

might not have the funds for more?

I think we are only allowed 11.7 scholarships, and I am certain that we use them all.  In baseball I think it is common for the scholarships to be split up, with people getting partials.
