Here's a simple solution to the Staten Island controversy...the conference could award the NCAA bid to the regular season championship instead of the tournament championship.

There were two conferences (SAA and SCAC) that had tournament finals with no particular meaning.  In the SAA, everyone knew Centre would get the Pool B bid no matter what Oglethorpe did.  In the SCAC, Centenary wasn't eligible for the postseason, so no matter what happened in that final, Trinity was going.  The games were still excellent.

I don't think there is a rule that the autobid has to go to the tournament winner, so you could still have the tournament, but Staten Island doesn't get hurt by their first bad game in three months.

While there is no rule that says you have to give your bid to your conference tournament champion, you do have to give the bid to your tournament champion if you want to have the conference tournament games exempt from your 25 total games. So you can do that but teams can only play 22 or 23 games during the year if they want to participate in the conference tournament (Bylaw

(SAA must have gotten a waiver while they were serving their two years)

IIRC, Geneva competed in the PrAC tournament before they were a full member.

Right in your own back yard.  Trine competed in the 2005 and 2006 MIAA Tournaments as a provisional.

Also Trine.

Did St. Mary's College recently move their campus north about 15 miles?

On a separate note, here is a map with the location of every team currently in the field. Today's finals that are in are included:

And if they had made their lay ups and not turned the ball over they had it won.

Was 2009 the year LU lost to Wash U or was it Wheaton?   I know in 2004 and 2005 Stevens Point beat LU and then won the title.

In 2006 the refs gave the game to IWU in Appleton, don't know if they won or lost after that.  I know that LU's Keven Bradley has scars from the foul called traveling at half court.

Can't recall 2007 and 2008.

I think 2008 was the loss to Wheaton. 2007 was the weird year in there that Lawrence did terrible and missed the MWC tourney. It was held in an ice storm in Grinnell and Galesburg (final moved there due to power outage in Grinnell AND Monmouth). Carroll won it and then knocked off #7 Augustana and #5 St. Thomas before bowing out to Hope in the Sweet 16.

As I see it, 9 conference games for the new 11-team PAC.  Kinda reminds me of the old MAC.  No St Vincent?

Who plays 10 conference games this year?

CWRU and CMU only play eight, then WUStL and UChi.

Could be like the bad old days of the NCAC when teams didn't all play the same number of conference games.

This would still create a problem. The nine remaining teams with nine games each creates 81 results. You need to have an even number of results (a winner and a loser for each game) (CMU and CWRU have 16 results of their own still causing an odd number). This means someone is a) playing 8 conference games, b) playing 10 conference games, or c) like the Midwest Conference did for the past two years, Lawrence played ten conference games but one of them didn't count as conference for LU but did count as conference for the opponent.

NebWes has declared for the NAIA tourney for the past several years rather than the NCAA tourney (you have to make such declarations in the preseason), so, for all intents and purposes, the Prairie Wolves are currently an NAIA team.

Even though they do not declare for the D3 Tourney in basketball they do compete for the D3 title in track and in fact host this years D3 Indoor Championships.

Shout out to Katie Vanden Avond. Who??

She's a junior forward on the women's St. Norbert soccer team. She made the Faces In the Crowd section in this week's Sports Illustrated.  Pretty cool stuff.

Here's an article on ESPN W about her from a couple of weeks ago

Wisconsin Lutheran will be playing an exhibition game against Milwaukee (or UWM as I still call it) on Sunday. Milwaukee went 9-20 overall and 5-11 in the Horizon league last year.

The school still is UWM. The athletic teams though go by Milwaukee. It's like Virginia Tech. The athletic teams go by Virginia Tech. The school is actually Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

I have a question. As Pat mentioned, Overall D-III SOS is primary criteria. Is Overall D-III record primary criteria? The reason I ask is because unless I missed something Chicago is still undefeated in regional play. Rhodes is in the SAA, South Region, and Administrative Region 3. Chicago is in the UAA (until 2015? when they join the SAA), North Region, and Adminsitrative Region 4.

I still wouldn't put Chicago in the top 3 of Pool B but just curious. Also history doesn't exactly bode well for a UAA team in this situation. Case Western Reserve went 9-0 in region in 2011(?) and lost to Rochester out of region and missed the Pool B bid.

It's working for me when I go through the links on the scores tab at

+1 -- thanks for clicking through

I tried that, too, but no luck earlier...

I did not try to watch Midwest Conference games today but I did try to watch a couple of other Stretch Internet games and found they were hit or miss today.

I had no issues yesterday and I clicked through to three different MWC games.
I lost the audio at halftime of the CU/Ripon game.  Anyone else?  I was able to hear audio from other sources so I figured it was a problem with the site/transmission. Not pilot error unless I was the only one.

I had audio for the first half of CU/RC game but the audio never came back when the video returned from halftime. I was able to hear other games during that time though and I tried to refresh it a few times but it never worked.

Pat, this kind of has to do with this topic. has pictures of each stadium on their website. I don't know if website limitations on would prevent this but the concern of it taking along time to gather could be mitigated by a lot of people on these boards would look for pictures for it. Would be kind of nice to see for Division III as well.

Many of those are committed to conferences. I can't imagine who from this list they would pick up that they don't already play, short of Trinity Bible and perhaps Kentucky Christian.

That's the thing....I think Maranatha put themselves in a tight spot by leaving the NACC. As RFMichigan stated, it's tougher to put together a schedule as a independent. Add to their recent struggles in football and not a whole lot of teams are willing to keep scheduling them.

The fact the NACC now has seven teams could help Maranatha in that there will be an open week for these schools later in the season that might player Maranatha. However due to recent struggles at Maranatha to field a competitive team, I wonder if the NACC and MIAA are talking about changing their challenge series from all seven games in one weekend to one game a week for seven weeks throughout the conference for teams that don't want the bye week late in the year.
