Beesball - Season's Over

In a disappointing turn of events, the Jackets found out today that their season is over. They failed to give the selection committee enough ammunition to make them the last ACC selection. A weak non-conference record (losses agains UGAg, GA St, GA Southern, Kennesaw St) and not enough conference wins just did in the Jackets. Yes, they have a VERY strong case that they should be in, but at the end of the day they shouldn't be placing this decision in the hands of the committee.

Danny Hall's not happy about it:

"Are they capping the league, that the ACC can only get seven teams in?" Yellow Jackets coach Danny Hall asked. "They can try to justify this thing any way they want. Bottom line, they just wanted to take seven and not eight ACC teams because they didn't want to hear it from the [northern and western leagues]. That would be my answer to any spin they want to put on it.

"They're basically saying the RPI doesn't mean anything."

It's nothing short of disappointing, but it is what it is. This just wasn't one of Danny Hall's better clubs. Well, it's off to the Cape Cod leagues for some and off to Scott Boras's office for others.

Until next season......................
