In the absence of projected SOS and unable to really guess the RRO, I think if both win out and UMHB does as well, then all three are No. 1 seeds and UMHB is 1 overall, UWO 2 and UMU 3. But we'll need to see more of the criteria to know better.

oh no

Letís go UW LAX!

their QB went down, UWL over UWO isnt happening.  We need ONU to crank it up and crush the OAC and get regionally ranked. 

UWO gets a big advantage by not counting VA-Lynchburg and whatever their record is in fake college football and another missing non-conference game.

And from being really freaking good.

I'm sure they are really good, but who have they beat?  Does UWW count as a big win? or is that like beating ONU?  Platteville is a big win, but is that much different than Mount smoking Berg, both regionally ranked.  The JCU games seem like a perfect comparison between UWO and Mount

Northeast Region / Re: MBB: NESCAC

Thanks for all the great info.  I've listened to people discuss the NESCAC and how it is so much better than most d3 schools since they can offer an education with benefits that outweigh even a scholarship.   Is it actually fair that they are in d3?  Where else would they be?  It's interesting that many d3 schools "play" d1 schools as openers, but no NESCAC schools?  Just trying to get a view of the landscape.

Men's soccer / Re: NESCAC

Good observations SoccerMom.  I'm harkening back to Mr. Right's opinion that Tufts is the class of the league so far.  Having allowed only one goal, it's hard to argue with that.  I think Bowdoin and Amherst are in the next tier, and Colby is one of the teams who are right behind them.  However, as recent history has shown, anything can and probably will happen during the NESCAC tournament.

People keep talking Bates and Williams with pool C hopes and that Bowdoins chances are poor.  But... why?  I really don't get that.
I don't actually care that much, at this point, I guess, but I guess I am not sure how it is done.

Granted, I have not gotten to watch as much this week.  Also, I havent seen them play live, so could be missing something, but... I don't understand at all how people are reading these things, if it comes down to numbers... which it seems like it has to. 

Trying to figure out how these judgements get made.  Help me out?



I don't think anyone on these Boards has been talking about Bates and Pool C hopes.  That must be a typo.  Did you mean Colby or perhaps Middlebury? The only way Bates has a chance to make the NCAA Tournament is through the AQ and to do that they would need to beat Midd on Saturday, Colby next Wednesday and get help from Colby beating or playing to a draw at Hamilton.  And if all that were to occur, Bates would then need to win the NESCAC tournament.  I have a pretty good idea what percentage chance Mr. Right would put on all that happening...

Regarding the Bowdoin/Tufts comparison, the NESCAC standings reflect the in-conference comparison - not much difference between the two teams (other than goals against).  However, the NCAA Committee looks all at the games played and overall SOS is one of the primary criteria in their ranking process.  SOS and a better overall winning percentage account for the gap between the two teams in the regional rankings.  A few of the regulars on these Boards have noted many times that Bowdoin needs to leave Maine and beef up its non-conference schedule if it wants to improve its Pool C chances year-in and year-out. The same would apply to Colby and Bates. They all play a predominately "Maine" based out of conference schedules.

Having said all that, if Bowdoin beats both Conn and Tufts on the road to finish the regular season, I think they would be a lock for a Pool C berth with at least 4 ranked wins.

Sorry.  I meant Bowdoin & Pool C hopes  Maine schooll with a B.

So... does the team who wins the NESCAC, automatically participate in  playoffs, or does it come down to qualifying for "Pool C" or whatever, if they arent ranked. 


It is really weird that teams get ranked so much lower on the national rankings than multiple teams that they have beaten, isnt it?  To me that is just so bizarre.

Pat I agree entirely with your projection. Not as a WIAC homer as I am a great Mt appreciator. Last season plus legitimate conference difficulty should get the award.
