So did Trinity just not get to host because of the two red cards at the end of last season or what is the situation with that?
It would be interesting to know about that. And was Texas-Dallas, consequently, invited just to provide an alternate host site that would also minimize travel? Is it possible that Hardin-Simmons did not bid to host, making giving a berth to Texas-Dallas crucial for minimizing travel? Very interesting.
The selection is supposed to be completely separate from the bracketing. So, travel concerns should have no bearing on what teams get into the tournament. At least that's how it is supposed to work.
