Don't get me wrong, I'm usually the first to write off the cold weather teams especially the academics, but I think the Ivy league is really being overlooked this year. Anybody remember Dartmouth's showing last year in the Miami regional? Beat FIU and played both Miami and A&M incredibly tough with a very young team. Other team to watch is Harvard....team showed some talent last year in beating Notre Dame, Stetson, and Creighton....only lost one starter. The Crimson have 4 incredibly solid starters in Brent Suter (Top pitching prospect from the Great Lakes league LHP 88-91) Max Perlman (2 time Cape All-Star RHP 88-90 with nasty offspeed) Eric Eadington (LHP 90-92) and Conner Hulse (RHP 90-94)....both Dartmouth and Harvard could make some noise this year reppin the north east

I think the Ivy League is prone to being able to 'make noise' much the same as Dartmouth did last year, that is, win a game or 2 at Regionals. While that is great for the game, especially the growth and exposure in the North (and I'm from Pittsburgh so I'm well-versed in the NE aspect of College Baseball) teams like Dartmouth or Harvard will put a bit of a scare into some teams from the South, but giving Dartmouth's now recent history from Coral Gables Regional last year, I don't think anyone would take Dartmouth extremely lightly. That said, they'll STILL get a #4 Seed whoever wins that conference, and still face a #2 or possibly depending on who the #1 IS and where they're sent to, maybe even the Sunday starter from some of the better rotations.

The only conference(s) from the North/NorthEast region that could REALLY make noise is the Big East with St.Johns, Louisville, UConn, and Pitt with their improved facilities/ballclub. And POSSIBLY the Big 10 if Minnesota can have a solid season.
