Wofford ranked 110th -Warren Nolan RPI rating

Postby Growler on Sun Mar 04, 2007 11:17 am

Wofford Terriers ranked 110th on the Warren Nolan RPI scale. THis was based on last weeks 9-3 win/loss record we should rise this week. As we are now 11-3 with a chance to sweep Niagra today!

Final: Terriers 9 Niagara 3

This team looks more and more like its for real. The hitting doesn't
surprise me but for a change it looks like we have some PITCHING!

Three starters and two closers have all pitched well and we have Vartanian on the verge of returning. I think the newcomer, Gilmartin,
has made a huge difference, solidifying the infield as a shortstop and
the pitching staff as a closer.

I know all about our history in the SoCon but I am going out on a
limb and predicting 30 wins. We only need 18 out of the 42 remaining
games. Hooah! GO TERRIERS!!

I have to admit I've just jumped on the baseball bandwagon, so I haven't followed the baseball team. How have we done in the conference in past seasons?

Terrierbob, you do not want to know. but maybe, just maybe, this year will be different. I'd like to think we have a chance to finish somewhere in the middle of the SoCon rather than at the bottom of it. But I am very cautious in making any kind of predictions about Wofford baseball until we win some conference games. I think our schedule has been pretty weak so far, with Army being about the best team we've played. Most SoCon teams are better than Army overall.

Boydsworld has Wofford at #94. He has Furman as the highest rated SoCon team at #20.

Up to #95 at Warren Nolan's site.

What warrants FU being ranked so highly? Have they beaten a big-time school or something?

Another thing: They've (FU) lost to Davidson 2 out of 3, but DC is at #74. What's impressive about a #2 SOS if you lose 66% of your games?

The Boydsworld rating is a joke. Kentucky(12-0) rated #35 blew out
Furman(3-6) rated #20 three games. Are they telling us that Furman
is stronger than Texas, Stanford, and Arizona State?

The thing that is working in Furman's case is that their SOS is #2 in the country

However if they continue using him (Gilmartin) as a closer we'll be in the midst of conference play with a shortstop that has a dead arm and can't pitch anymore either! History will note they will ride one player till he's hurt or burned out!

Growler, this is a point well made. Traylor is, however, also using
Lance Player as a closer and he, too, has been effective. Let's
hope he continues to rotate them and that Gilmartin is one of those
guys with a "rubber arm".

It will also help if we continue our offensive onslaught and continue
to score enough runs to take some pressure off the closer.

This is very true, Lance has done an outstanding job. My point in the earlier post was, that there are enough pitchers on staff that can be used in middle relief situations so we don't need burn out our starters and closers or our bread & butter short stop. I've seen them go from the game starter to the closer as early as the second inning. I can also remember the closer logging more innings in a weekend than most starters...

Having said that we're off to a great start and I hope to see our success continue. If we continue the offensive output and protect the baseball we will definately fool some of our SOCON counterparts!
