Oshkosh beat Whitewater (an eventual host site and high seed) twice right at the end of the season last year and ended up tied for 2nd in the WIAC, the fact they made the WIAC final bolstered their case probably.  It probably didn't hurt that the national committee chair had also played them. ;)

Seeing them in person at Hope they were very much an NCAA quality team, but I'm still not sure that was a great Pool C pick.

Production issues or committee changing their minds at the last minute? ;D

Either way it is complete and utter disregard for my lunch time - guess I'll have to postpone a meeting cause I'm not missing the selection show.

Production issues, according to d-mac.  Someone made an announcing mistake on the first take, and now they have to record the show again to get it just right.

OK, NCAA men's selection show-- take two!  See you at 1 PM Eastern.

BTW, when it comes on-- no spoilers please.  The show may be releasing as an on-demand video that can be fast forwarded.  Please let us watch it as though it is live.

ESPN is watching closely as they all know the D-1 cow is running out of clean milk. 

Can you imagine the infrastructure changes that will be needed at ESPN to broadcast the Marian vs. Finlandia game in 2019?    ;D ;D

Brockport and Springfield in. Hobart out. Paid brutally for two worst shooting games of the season in the last 2 games , despite close scores in each game. Great team all year, heart breaking. Watching Hockey the rest of the way.

Looks like the last few were perhaps North Central, IWU, LeTourneau, Springfield, and Brockport.

3 the D3hoops panel missed on    Amherst, Hobart, River Falls

They really struggled with the last 5 or 6 picks.  Hobart they really never did reach consensus on.  It didn't sound like any of them were super comfortable with Amherst even though they picked them earlier.  River Falls seems like the one they were sure about that didn't make it.

There was no discussion of Brockport St, who obviously finished ranked ahead of Hobart in their region.
