    Did we wind up with three stolen bids?

    Missouri Valley, Northeast, Ohio Valley

    Anyone else?

    MVC- No. Missouri State won the tournament and was a lock for at-large.
    Northeast- only 1 team got in, so hard to have a stolen bid here.
    OVC- yes

    Correct above. But the CAA had a stolen bid (UNC-Wilmington). Morehead State from the Ohio Valley Conference was the other stolen bid.

    Here is the Northeastern resume ...

    - 36-19 overall record, 17-6 in the #13 RPI Conference
    - Colonial Athletic Association regular season champions
    - Colonial Athletic Association tournament runner-up
    - #35 RPI ranking (as stated earlier, inflated because of the region from which they draw their schedule)
    - 6-4 over their last ten games. 9-6 over their last fifteen games.
    - #40 NC RPI ranking
    - #44 NC SOS ranking
    - #74 SOS ranking
    - 11-10 road record
    - 3-9 vs. RPI Top 50. 1-7 vs. RPI Top 25. 9-16 vs. RPI Top 100.
    - (2) "bad losses" (Group 4) ... vs. #156 Hofstra, vs. #161 Harvard.

    Northeastern played a four game series at Texas Tech ... and were swept in that series, losing by an average of 11 runs/game (3-22, 3-12, 2-13, 4-9). This was late March, not late February (20-24th games of the season).

    One of their three RPI Top 50 wins was vs. Auburn (took 1/3). It will be interesting to see if Auburn elects to throw Casey Mize, or holds him back to potentially face NC State in round two of the regional. Mize no hit Northeastern earlier in the season.

    Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) and Ohio Valley Conference (OVC).

    if one team was 9-9 against tourny teams and one was 10-14, which would be in? and if the first was 3-1 against tourny teams from the second team's conference when that team only went .500 in their own conference?
