I was checking out Matt Garcia's Hudl profile after I saw his HC tweet this:

Evan Breisblatt‏ @Pasdfootball

Congrats to @mattwgarcia will be continuing his academic and athletic career @UMUFootball ! Size don't matter. Can't measure your heart!



He is not a big RB.  5'6" 165.  Definitely small.  But this kid is a monster in the weight room:

Squat:  440
Clean:  260
Bench:  300
Dead:  540
Vertical:  37

Those are huge numbers for a 165 lb HS kid.  He ran for 1820 yds and 18 scores in 10 games in PA's 2nd largest division.  I'm officially intrigued.

Dave, I assume you mean "a game against Becker"?  It seems like the seeing in that particular pod goes Williams, Scranton, SUNY, Becker.   If Scranton was considered the top seed, wouldn't they play Becker ... even if they are precluded from hosting -- see Tufts below.  In all events, Williams, Scranton and SUNY seem very, very closely grouped. 

Looking at the other NESCAC pods, the seeding appears to be as follows:

Ramapo, Amherst, Keene, Misericordia
Rochester, Wesleyan, Union, AMC
Midd, Lycoming, Cabrini, Farmingdale
Tufts (not hosting due to conflict), SJF, St. Lawrence, Salem State

The first team looks right to me.  But the second: how any coach would prefer Dawson to Jack Daly is beyond me.  Hoffmann over Simonds is also interesting.
Simonds deserves it over Dawson too I would say.

That sucks that email went to my spam. I would've been able to post my pick and your pick right away and Smitty Oom logged off  10 minutes after my pick. I also have 7express' pick in hand! Oh well...

Williams Fans...

Let's analyze your pod.

Becker will be a low double digit win...

Williams will be challenged by the winner of Scranton-Oswego St.   Both teams are talented and finished strong. Oswego won 14 of last 16 and Scranton 10 of last 11.  Worth showing up early to see this one.  Scranton is more defensive minded while Oswego has more balance.

If Williams survives that match-up...the team to fear is MIT.  Susquehanna has been "exposed" on film. Trinity also lost a close one to them early. MIT plays a high IQ, deliberate, defensive style that would contrast to Williams' style. Talented as their multiple good games with Babson show.     

Very Compelling Games....

Can you expand on why Susquehanna has been exposed on film? also what do you think the seeding is for this site?  Becker 4th? Scranton/Oswego or Williams 1?

Scranton appears to be the top seed in this bracket, but until now I am not sure why they weren't treated as such with a game against Williams. I missed that in the past few days. Certainly interesting.
I heard somewhere, perhaps the NCAA show, that they couldn't host.  Maybe their gym is not large enough to host or is committed to another event like women's basketball?

Which is a better gauge, regional rankings or top 25 rankings? I found 11 regionally unranked teams in the tourney. Obviously, their records got them in . And it looks like Massey rankings are a better gauge than d3 top 25. I'm filling out a d3 pickem bracket and I need help!

Don't get confused with teams who won AQs who weren't regionally ranked... of course they are in the tournament due to earning the AQ. So, no, their records did not get them in... their winning a conference title got them in. No team got an at-large bid that was not regionally ranked.

Others, especially in the CCIW, would point out that Massey has been wrong in its predictions recently. That's why they play the games. Just go with what you think.

Congratulations to the Cowboys.

I am glad that you are hosting first round games.

Did I see a tweet from Pat during the selection show that said as top seed they paid the NCAA for the privilege of hosting (so the NCAA could afford to pay to fly someone there) ?   Would love to know what the cost was as I never knew that was an option.

Absolutely not... that isn't at all what Pat's tweet said. Pat was indicating the the NCAA paid for an extra flight which allowed Hardin-Simmons to host. No one paid the NCAA for the privilege of hosting. It isn't an option. It is just that the NCAA "allowed" one more than the minimum this bracket showed was necessary in terms of flights.
