Bowling Green has not been eliminated yet but they soon will be. I think their number is somewhere around 4 now. Midwest playoff procedures see link.ReplyDelete

The Hot Rods are 7 games behind West Michigan for the fourth and final playoff spot with 11 games to go. It is just a matter of a few days before they will be eliminated but mathematically they are still alive.
