RE: Softball matchups set
Is this the way the Sun Belt has done it normally or is this the first year of doing it this way?

Softball has an interesting issue in that the bottom of the league is not very good and the top of the league is very good. I imagine the format is designed to help the high RPI teams near the top who have chances of hosting regionals by not being forced to face a low RPI team in the tourney.

I hate the format in the SoCon of going undefeated in your four-team pod, then playing a team that has lost once in a winner-take-all game, although the team who lost once had to play at least one extra game.

Yes, and the Final Four is double elimination

Except the title game ... leave it to softball to do something screwy, just like their all-conference team.

Pointless to do it this way.

Its also pointless for ulm to bleed the rest of its sports dry just so its football team can make it it 6-6.

But here we are. I credit the conference with the foresight to protect its best teams and would wish they'd do the same in baseball.
