File this under records can be deceiving

Post  GNG on Wed Apr 27, 2011 5:40 pm

Keene has 4 wins. Let's look a little closer at their record my sports forum friends. They beat division 2 Con Val{ who only have 1 win}, they also beat Brattleboro VT. They took a 1-0 forfeit over Spaulding. Their only real win over a division 1 team is against South. The reason I bring this up is that Keene is usually a very strong baseball program. I just have a feeling that they might not be as potent as years past.

Also, with the point system Keene does not have the points posted on NHIAA.org.

Games against a non D1 team are worth fewer points. Keene should only get 3 points for a win at home against a D2 team, ConVal. I would assume they should only get 4 points for a win against non D1 Brattleboro for an away game.

NHIAA needs a backbone.

All D1 teams should play every other D1 team. There's only 18 teams. Suck it up and travel. My son's team will have to travel to Keene 3 out of 4 years to play on a sub-standard field. Play other games if you want to but suck it up and play all the other D1 teams.

Sorry, there are 19 D1 teams, so every D1 team should play 18 games that count for the record.

Spaulding wimped out and didn't travel to Keene???

Dammit, after Memorial handed them a win on 4-15 w/ 6 errors in the 4th inning they could man up and travel out to Keene and play a game.

Not sure I'd call it wimped out... Have to imagine the actions the Spaulding Administration and Coaches took caused quite a stir especially for a public school. Not sure how many players were removed from the team, but it seems like it had to be quite a few... If your HS roster can have 18 players and it takes 9 to field a team, well do the math. Whether they carry 18 is unknown, but even if they carry 14 - that's still more than a handful. Could be a tough rest of the season for Spaulding.

I was given the impression that Spaulding just forfeited, sounds like there is more to the story. Nothing that I was aware of.

Not often you see a line drive home run like that laser at Holman last night!

I thought there already was a link to the story, but for context here it is again

They were able to field a team against Winnicunnet, but they lost.
