My first guess at the East.

1.  Del Val
2.  Union
3.  Rowan
4.  Hobart
5.  Ithaca
6.  Wesley
7.  Washington and Jefferson
8.  NEFC TEam

Does this meen that Del Val plays NEFC TEam,  Union vs W&J, Rowan vs Wesley, Ithaca vs Hobart??

Also, with the Alfred victory does this classify the E8 as a region that is "unpredictable" because of its quality powerhouse teams?  If so shouldnt the # 8 bid go to Alfred, being they have one lose in a powerhouse conference, instead of the NEFC team.

The NEFC has an automatic bid.  You can't bounce them.

I think W&J OR Wesley stay in the South.  If they both move East, that probably only leaves 7 South teams and they'd have to ship somebody to the South which wouldn't make sense if they had 9 qualifiers to begin with.

I think the OAC #2 (Capital?) comes East as the #7 seed like John Carroll did a couple of years ago and plays at Union or Rowan, assuming they're within 500 miles.

My East matchups are the same as above except switching W&J with the OAC #2.  I have W&J going to MHB since someone is going to have to fly there anyway.

He caught two passes put directly in his hands.  To his credit, though,he caught them.

Cortland's secondary was torched for a good portion of the game.

Well, if you have a computer nearby, you can go to http://www.espnradio.com and click the "ESPNEWS" stream.  You'll get what's broadcast on the TV station, though the quality is a little rough.

Hey original,

I think if you go back and check 27 was refering to his ability to tackle not his coverage skills. Hmmm you noted earlier on in this board that you are an older DIII fan but you seem to have a history of calling certain players out! Since you have not played recently, I guess you are less qualified than recent players to offer opinions on those they have faced personally.

TNdad is right original, i never brought his running skills into question.  It was his tackling skills.  He still can't tackle but your right he can run and catch a direct pass.  Original, since you haven't played in awhile i don't hink you have played against him i have first hand knowledge, you don't.  I do value your wisdom on other things but this is not one of them.  Playing the game these days is much different than watching them.  Ask anyone who has played recently.  But, if you want to wax intellectual topics, feel free as well.

Once again I did play vs you and Sair (I played Center for SJF from 2002-2003).....when exactly did I say I didnt play against you or Sair?

Original,

I thought when you first started throwing stones on this subject a ways back, it was noted that you were "older", must of read that wrong. I also thought you had or someone with a similar handle, had been on this board going well back past 2003. My bad on that, still don't agree with you though!
