Amazing that this is the lineup of teams!  Correct me if I am wrong, this year will be a first time winner no matter what?  And I believe there are 3 squads making their first WS trip, right?

In looking at this, I do believe we will have a first-time winner.  http://www.d3baseball.com/playoffs/all-time
I can definitely tell you that Oswego State and Washington and Jefferson will make their first appearances.  I don't know the other.  UMass-Boston is making their second, Cal Lutheran their sixth.

I'm pretty sure Roanoke is making their first trip.

I predict this will be the brackets.  The schedule will be announced on Tuesday

Friday, May 26
Bracket One
Game 1: W&J vs. Cal Lutheran , 10Concordia-Chicago a.m.
Game 2: North Central (Ill.) vs. Mass-Boston, 1:15 p.m.

Bracket Two
Game 3: Wheaton (Mass.) vs. Concordia-Chicago Cal Lutheran, 4:30 p.m.
Game 4: Roanoke vs. Oswego State, 7:45 p.m.

Matchup-wise... just swap CLU and Concordia-Chicago and Mr. Dixon has the pairings correct.   A bit off on game time and Home/Away... but pretty darn good prediction.

What a wide-open D3 CWS.   I wonder when the last time was there was only one top-ten team represented?

I gave the higher seed the home game and swapped the brackets to put the high seen at prime time. The seeding was so easy my pet parakeet could have picked a decent bracket if last year is what we have to compare.

I sense some humility in your comment.  Either that, or you have a very smart pet parakeet!
