I know I am late to the party - but I have a question - I  know Benedictine is moving to D2 over the summer, but why are they ineligible for the playoff this year?  Is that just for their conference playoff?  The odds are beyond slim (near infinitesimal) but could they (if their record was much better) be eligible for the D3 tournament as an 'at large"?

THis goes even deeper in my asking - right now Benedictine's Men's Volleyball is ranked #4 in the country, they are ineligible for their NACC Conference tournament too - so they would need an at large bid to get into the NCAA tournament - is that even a possibility?

(FWIW - I am a Benedictine grad, so I have a bit of a vested interest.  ;) )

I believe this was the cost of them being allowed to play a conference schedule this year.

So them not being able to compete in the conference tournament - would that preclude them from competing in the NCAA tournament?  Does the ineligibility affect them in getting into the NCAA tournament too?  I am mostly referring to the Men's VB who are currently ranked #4 nationally but poised to make it to #3 after beating #3 Dominican tonight.

my understanding is that they're eligible for all Pool C bids but not for the Pool A

That sounds right to me.  AQ's are up to conference rules; Pool C is an NCAA decision.

Benedictine IS eligible for an NCAA at-large bid this season as they are only in transition and thus are a full Division III member. However, the NACC decided as a conference to make them not eligible for conference post-season tournaments. That was a conference decision.

That did NOT change when Benedictine decided to turn about and go the other direction with their move to DII - staying in DIII.

redman822 - Benedictine is NOT moving to DII. They changed their minds in September.

Anyway, they are eligible for NCAA tournaments and the cross country teams were in the NCAA Regionals this past fall.

Thanks Dave, I missed that they changed their minds. 

Personally, I never understood the whole logic behind them moving to DII min the first place, but in the grand scheme of things - as an alum, my opinion doesn't matter.  ;)
