2023 Fall Report: Kansas StateFall Report
MANHATTAN, Kan. — Pete Hughes was outspoken in his criticism of the Division I Baseball Committee after his Kansas State Wildcats were passed over for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament despite going 13-11 in the Big 12 and finishing No. 54 in the RPI — particularly since one of the teams that got a bid was Oklahoma, which went 11-13 in the conference and got swept by K-State. A weak nonconference strength of schedule hurt the Wildcats in the RPI, and that’s the one area Oklahoma had an advantage, finishing No. 40 in the RPI rankings.
