I really think Wooster, Etta, and BW have great shots to get to the 2nd weekend tonight. If Capital can pull off the upset in Rock Island tonight, you could have 4 Great Lakers battling it out next weekend to go to Fort Wayne. I think all 4 would be happy with that scenario and each would feel like they could get through.

Marietta would be in the seat to host as they would be the highest regionally ranked team in the group. Lot of basketball tonight to play though before we get into this discussion.

No. Wooster would be the lead to host because the trip from Augustana to Marietta is 604 miles. To Wooster is right on the 500 mile radius and may give the committee the ability to bus over flight.

I think that he's talking about the four-GL-teams scenario -- Baldwin-Wallace, Capital, Marietta, Wooster -- that he mentioned in the first paragraph.

Sorry for the rant, but for years it has amazed me that following the completion of the first round games there is so much talk on these boards about who is going to host the regionals, rather than discussion about the games to get to the regionals.  And yes, D3 has limitations about hosting due to travel costs and a 500 mile “rule”. But it’s been that way for years, and will probably be for many more.

How about some thoughts or insights on the matchups, or anything about the actual games?

As someone whose team is never involved I don't worry about 2nd weekend hosting until we reach that point. Too much going on Friday and Saturday to deal with potential hosting duties. If your team has a possibility to host I can understand a little discussion but it does get a bit overwhelming.

I'll take BW, Wooster, Witt, and Marietta to win tonight with Capital losing.

My picks are:
Pomona-Pitzer upsetting Whitman
Williams over Gwynedd Mercy
Chris Newport over Alfred
Hamilton over Moravian
Amherst over Rochester
Nichols edging Rowan
Swarthmore over MIT
Randolph-Macon over York (PA)
Nebraska Wesleyan over St Thomas
Wittenberg knocking off Guilford
UW-Oshkosh over Northwestern
Loras over North Central
Augustana over Capital
Wooster over Wheaton
Marietta over Arcadia
Baldwin Wallace beating Oswego
