However, I'm not one for predictions, but I bet they'll wind up in the top


15 of the D1 preseason poll next year, and we will be unranked. Not that we SHOULD be ranked, after the way this season ended. But we didn't get the benefit of the doubt after making the CWS. So I'm not sure why VT should, when their pitching proved inadequate to the task at hand, and they admirably made their first SR, but were not a team built to go farther. BUT since D1 hates us and likes to make us squirm, so that AF can whine about UVA fans being mean to him, I'm sure they'll rank the Hokies pretty highly, just to piss us off. Mark my word.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter. They had a good season. We had half of a good season. They have an excellent offense, but they lose Cross and Biddison and probably several other key cogs in their offense, and they lose a LOT of pitching (which might not be a bad thing for them). We will have a lot of question marks again next year and I'm sure D1 will go with one of their "sure thing" picks like Oklahoma State or Long Beach State and ride them until they have a losing record. We just need to do what we do and trust Oak and Drew and Mac.
