What makes you think Princeton is a fluke.  They not only beat Boston
twice, they are also returning for a second straight year.  Their top
pitcher (Moe) improved greatly over last year and they have some of the
better hitters around.  Beat Boston 1-0 in the first game.  Tight one.  
Beat Boston 3-1 in the second go around.  In these types of games, not
what you would call a tight one.  Lets see how they do this year in the
NCAA College Workd Series.

Well, let's see, run-rule-city last year after beating NO ONE to reach the
CWS. Same thing this year. Boston U. is for shit, can't even win the
piss-poor NAC, luck out in one weekend. Princeton sucks, plays no schedule
at all and remains a FLUKE because they happen to be at the right place at
the right time, the regional winner from that area always will suck.
Arizona is going to tear them a new ***. We'll see about Princeton's
second-round loss, though, might be a little closer.

Actually, Princeton will play (and, in fact, is now playing) Washington in
the first round.  Not like that will be easier or anything. :)  (When 8 of
the 9 people in the starting lineup are hitting above .300, and the team
ERA is around 1.30, that can cause problems for opponents. :) )

Courtesy of the Tiger Sports Line...

The top-seeded Washington Huskies indeed defeated the Princeton Tigers
7-1 in the opening game of the WCWS. The game was actually closer than
the final score would indicate... Washington led only by 3-1 going into
the sixth but scored four in the bottom of the sixth to ice the victory.

Tiger pitcher Maureen Davies entered the game with a 26-game winning
streak but was ice cold, getting the hook in the second inning in favor
of freshman Lynn Miller, who held the Huskies at bay until the sixth.
A Husky named Pickering (forget her first name) had a two-run shot
in the first inning. Washington had 12 hits by the end of the game.

The defensive for Princeton sounded uncharacteristically shaky;
they had four errors in the game, including two in the sixth to
help blow the game open.

Princeton's only offense came from SS Mandy Pfeiffer, who had both
Tiger hits, including a solo shot in the fifth. Washington's pitcher
(sorry, forgot her name) was not overpowering in the, say, Randy
Johnson sense with only one strikeout. Still, she was effective in
getting the Tigers to consistently ground-out or hit lazy fly balls.  

And so to everyone who thought Princeton was a fluke, I reiterate the
point I made last week: Princeton is still the strongest team in the
Northeast, and so as long as the NCAA retains its current playoff
format the Tigers cannot be called a fluke entry in the WCWS. And
I'd say that, except for the shaky defense in the field, they put up
a pretty good performance against the #1 team in the country.

Don't have a box score, but here's the score by inning:

             1  2  3  4  5  6  7  T
-----------------------------------
Princeton    0  0  0  0  1  0  0  1
Washington   2  1  0  0  0  4  X  7

I would not say they are a fluke. They are the strongest team in the
northeast, no argument. But I admit I  liked it better when the NCAA
shipped one of the orphan western teams back east every year and made the
eastern teams earn their spot. The regional at Amherst was by far the
weakest regional this year. It's great to see a school like Princeton get
their shot, but is that really what we want, giving an eastern school a
cakewalk to the WCWS while UCLA, Northridge and Fullerton or Fresno State,
Cal, and Long Beach State beat up on each other in western regionals? I
accept that the NCAA field is not going to have the top 32 teams. It will
have (under the current format) the top 20-25 teams and the field will be
filled out by teams who earned automatic bids. But I don't think it is
unreasonable to expect to see the top eight teams in the WCWS.
