    So would this be a bubble regional host team for a [hypothetical] Big Ten Champion in most years (not including last year's screw job of course)? The numbers below are the Gophers current record against top RPI plus adding 3 more top 26-50 wins assuming a strong finish and wins in the Big Ten Tourney. The Gophers have pretty much dominated the top 50 with all except probable WCWS/Super Regional Host teams.

    RPI top 50: 10W 9L
    RPI top 25: 3W 7L
    RPI top 8: 0W 6L
    RPI 9-16: 2W 0L
    RPI 17-25: 1W 1L
    RPI 26-50: 7W 2L

    Prior to last year I was pretty much convinced if you were in the top 16 in RPI your chances of hosting a Regional were very good. I had looked at a few years previously and there were some exceptions, but not many. The numbers you've presented are better than I suspected.
    That being said, I think Michigan wins the BIG and Indiana gets it's bubble burst next weekend. Although that freaking Indiana is 13-2 and Trainer threw a no hitter today, albeit against Penn State. Trainer vs Beaubien. Beaubien also threw a no hitter today. (Hopefully they both stumble and the Gophers sneak in and your numbers work out to host!)
    Speaking of Penn State, how can a team be so lousy? 7 wins on the year?!!

    Her right hand was in a sturdy-looking bandage today (Sunday).

    The bats are starting to come alive. B1G pitching helping the hitters? No games against Zona, ASU, UCLA, or FSU type teams?

    Sure, some of it is easier competition. Not playing WCWS quality teams on the road every week tends to help most stats. But it appears to me that some top Gopher hitters are changing up tendencies and are capitalizing.

    Weekly report card. Good to see the Gophers in the top 25!

    The bad news, though, is that the remaining schedule is somewhat disastrous for RPI purposes. 2 against #55 Wisconsin, 3 against #171 Purdue, 1 against #198 South Dakota, and 3 against #236 (ouch!!) Penn State. Even if we win every game it would be mathematically impossible to hold on to #25.

    As an example, Michigan was #27 last week. This week they swept #146 Maryland, and fell two spots to #29.

    Not that I weep for Whiskey, but it's too bad for the Gophers they fell out of the top 50. Seems like record against top 50 is a common metric for seeding.

    Looks like the top 5 are safely in the field of 64. Every other team can only hope to win the BIG tournament to get in.
