Baseball America chat slight mention

Postby BestOfBreed on Tue May 29, 2007 9:34 pm

The only mention of the Terriers is just mocking the lack of competence by the committee.

Q: Steve from Columbia, SC asks:
Did the NCAA place Wofford and Western Carolina in the same bracket initially? Or did ESPN just make a minor mistake?

A: Aaron Fitt: The committee screwed up and didn't realize its error until watching the selections announced on ESPN. That would have been a minor mistake for ESPN, but it's a major mistake for the committee. There's really no excuse for that happening. I know filling out the field of 64 is difficult, but whenever I'm doing a regional projection, I always make sure there aren't two teams from the same conference in the same regional -- it's a simple matter of checking your work. You have to wonder just a bit about the committee's diligence and competence when it lets something like that slip through. Fortunately it was easily remedied, as Wofford and Jacksonville were just swapped for each other.

they probably made a last min switch with another team that nocked wofford with WCU. I mean these come out with a quick turn around,

I don't know why you would insinuate something like that? No NCAA selection committee has ever been unfair to Wofford. :roll:

That being said, I'd rather be in Columbia than Chapel Hell.
