Title: Chase Seedings 08
Post by: Razor on January 03, 2008, 01:55:22 pm
With less than a week to go before the Chase starts up I'm interested to here how people think it will be seeded and how it will play-out.  Here are my thoughts:

#1. U of R
#2. Geneseo
#3. Brockport
#4. Naz
#5. Fisher
#6. RIT
#7. Roberts
#8. Keuka

Predictions:
-Roch. over Keuka
-Geneseo over Roberts
-Bport over RIT
-Fisher over Naz

Semi's:
Roch over Fisher
Geneseo over Bport

Finals:
Rochester over Geneseo in a rematch of last years finals!

This could be the deepest field in a while though, with Brockport, Naz, Fisher, Geneseo, and U of R all with a legit chance at winning it!  In the end though, I think Rochester's size and experience win out!

I hope you are right and UofR takes the title.  My only concern with UofR is they haven't played since the dismantling of Fisher on Dec 14th.  That's a long time to go between games and they have looked shakey so far this year when playing after long layoffs.  On the plus side, they should finally be healthy.

Roch over Naz

Based on b-ports last 2 losses I think you have to move them down to 4th behind Naz. Unless the seeding are already out??

The teams generally find out who they will play on Sunday night.

At this point, the seedings would probably be:

Rochester
Geneseo
Naz
BPort
RIT
Fisher
Roberts
Keuka

Could Fisher really be the 6 seed?  Certainly before last night RIT would have been behind them, but that win might be enough to move them ahead.

Idk Fisher beat RIT though and now they have one of their better players back,  the Chase voters take things like that into consideration.

They shouldn't take returning players into account. Seedings should be based on the merits of each team's season to date.

they shouldn't but they do.  They dont want to give a team that may not have as good of a record a low seed, even though they are better than a team with a slightly better record. It's not fair to the higher seeds having to play tougher games.

Brockport falling fast.  My revised prediction.

Rochester
Geneseo
Naz
RIT
Fisher
Brockport
Roberts
Keuka

Perhaps wishful thinking for RIT at the 4-spot, but I've seen crazier things.

Can anyone please tell me when the seedings/pairings will be announced, and where I can find them when it happens?  TIA.

The seedings are being announced tonight at the annual Chase Tourney Dinner (this year at the RIT Inn and Conference Center), and when they are published online I'll post the link.

I'm surprised Brockport, losers of three straight, managed to remain the four seed -- even if it is essentially meaningless.

The games on Wednesday should be good.  The games on Tuesday will likely be bad.

Thanks, bamm.  Can you point me towards the women's seedings, too?  Can I assume this is a straight bracket (i.e., 1/8 winner plays 4/5 winner, etc.)?  Is there a loser's bracket; that is, does everyone play three games, or are you done if you lose?  And finally, where are the weekend games going to be played?  Sorry to be a pest, but I need this info for my "HOW THEY FARED" posts in the respective Top 25 rooms. 

The games on Wednesday should be good.  The games on Tuesday will likely be bad.

What games on Tuesday?  Are those the women's games?

EDIT:  Never mind, I got the information I needed from Rochester's website (http://www.rochester.edu/athletics/article.php?id=2274).  Thanks.

Our preliminary plan is to cover all of Saturday's action with blogging on the Daily Dose, coaches interviews and broadcasts of games not otherwise carried on WYSL.  We'll link to the station's feeds for the title games since JC DeLass does a great job.

Looking forward to the visit to Rochester and hoping weather doesn't derail our plans.
