The ASC is 26-15 in the playoffs thru the first round of the 2018 season since the 2009 playoffs.

2011 McMurry lost to UMHB in the second round.
2102 Louisiana College lost to UMHB in first round
2015 HSU lost to UMHB in the first round
2018 HSU lost to UMHB in the first round.

That makes the "non-conference" record 22-11. (.667).

Congratulations UMHB for the first round win today.  I still don't understand why the committee thought this was a first round matchup.

Berry is excited to face the next challenge in the bracket.  The committee also saw fit to match up the SAA with two huge second round games with Centre headed to MU. I guess payment for a good season for the conference.

So where is the best steak in the area.
Berry Fan, the margin in 12 of the 16 games was 21 points.  In the first round, we eliminated most the "AQ" field, the teams who were there only because they won their conference (which is a philosophical tenet of D-3).

Three of the 5 Pool C bids won and advanced. HSU, a #3/#4 seed, got sent to UMHB. HSU would have surely defeated most of the #5-#8 seeded teams in the field handily.  (Pool C Muhlenberg beat Pool C John Carroll.)

For geographical proximity, it appears that Berry was a #4/#3 seed whose second round opponent in the region would be UMHB. They fortunately got a "#7 seed" in Maryville.

#2 SJU got a #8 seed in the first round.

IMHO, now we are getting the real Playoffs.

12 monkey stomps of the 16 first round games and 3 road wins.

Please remind me what the definition of a monkey stomp.

21 point defeat?
Yes

Three pool c teams still alive after round one.

Go Bethel!
And a 4th Pool C team that was either a #3 or a #4 seed was paired with the #1.
One would expect that to be a 4th win for Pool C with a National Bracket

Way to go Mules!

A South Region 2nd round with the Mules and RMC.

DelVal tries the Mississippi Miracle on the last play of the game and does not convert.

When did the current DIII playoff format start? RMC won their 11th ODAC title but this is only their 4th playoff appearance.
1999, with the AQ bid format. The number of Pool C bids has varied.

I think this because it has been stated in multiple posts and podcasts that previous year’s results are looked at when seeding teams in the tourney. I think it’s logical to think this. It’s sorta like the judge says, “Disregard that and strike it from the record” after something has been said. Everyone still remembers and knows about it. It affects the thought process.

Previous year's tournament results applies only to undefeated teams and only for seeding purposes, not selection.  This year's chair has said they didn't really use that provision at all when seeding teams in this bracket. 

HSU is playing at UMHB on Saturday because the NCAA didn't want to sign off on two extra flights to keep them apart for one round.  It really isn't more complicated than that.
Respectfully Wally,
HSU to Whitworth 1 flight
CMS to UMHB 1 flight

HSU/Whitworth back to UMHB... Maybe 60 / 40 chance of a flight.

2.6 flights


HSU to UMHB 0 flights
CMS to Whitworth 1 flight

Berry/Maryville to UMHB/HSU 2nd round 1 flight
CMS / Whitworth  to opponent 2nd round 1 flight.

3 flights, guaranteed

The 1st round bean counter argument fails.

This is so right.

Well, it's not actually.  There's another half to this region that needs to be considered. 

UMHB/HSU - 0 flights
Berry/Maryville - 0 flights
this pod will have a flight in round 2, so we've got 1 flight now.  on the other side:

SJU/MLC - 0 flight
Whitworth/CMS - 1 flight (2 total)
this pod will have a flight in the 2nd round (3 total)

Now whoever wins these pods will have to fly for the regional final - 4 total flights, all guaranteed through the region. 

So let's do it if we make the UMHB/CMS vs. HSU/Whitworth pod:
UMHB/CMS - 1
HSU/Whitworth - 1
2nd round gets this pod a flight if Whitworth advances, no flight if HSU advances.  So we have 2 guaranteed flights, maybe a third.  Other half:
SJU/MLC - 0
Berry/Maryville - 0
the 2nd round here is promised a flight (3) and whoever advances from here will be a flight away from whoever advances from the top, so we get a guaranteed flight for the regional final (4).  Still the four guaranteed flights, plus a toss up in Spokane to see if we get a fifth.  They chose not to gamble on that fifth flight in this region.
My bracket would have had

HSU at Whitworth
CMS at UMHB

Maryville at Berry
W&J at Centre

I will go with the 2.6 flight odds that mentioned above.

Centre can bus to Berry or Maryville.
If home teams prevail, we do not have a flight in the Berry pod.

Surely there are enough schools in the Midwest to fill a SJU/UWW bracket without a flight.

Yes it is a South Region  bracket, but the ASC has never played Centre Maryville or Berry in a post season contest.
