East Region Playoff Discussion
« on: November 10, 2006, 11:00:19 pm »
Well, it is almost that time of year and I noticed that the South and West already have a topic for the playoffs so I thought I'd add one.   Pat, if this is too early or not relevant yet please delete.

Anyway, even before the Playoffs begin, how do people see things shaking out?

Once the playoff seedings are picked, this may be a centralized place for people to go to discuss the matchups, rather than jumping back and forth between conferences.

Here are the teams that, at the time of writing this, are the possible candidates for the east regions (These are NOT seedings):

Locks:

1.  Wilkes --- Likely #1 seed, still has to face King's puts that in jeopardy.  However, they are the Pool A team from the MAC.
2.  Rowan --- Clinched the NJAC, are a Pool A qualifier.
3.  Union --- Clinched the LL, are a Pool A qualifier.  Seeding depends on who will hold the Shoes after tomorrow...
4.  Curry/Coast Guard --- The winner of the NEFC champ will get a Pool A Bid.

Virtual Lock:

1.  Springfield:  Likely to clinch the Pool A bid in the E8 against Norwich Tomorrow.

Pool C Candidates that will likely get in if they win:

1. St. John Fisher:  Probably the strongest of the candidates to this point, Must beat Alfred to get Pool C Bid, still an outside shot at the Pool A bid.
2. Hobart:  With a win vs.  U of R, will likely get a Pool C Bid.
3. Cortland:  Cortaca Jug game will determine their fate!

Pool C candidates that need help:

1. Alfred --  Needs to beat Fisher, and have a slew of other things to happen to get a look.
2.  U of R -- Needs to Beat Hobart, then have a miracle
3. Ithaca -- Needs to Win the Cortaca Jug, then steal some of U of R's Miracle

Out of Region Teams:

1.  Dickinson:  In the case that any of the Pool C locks slip up, the winner of the CC may be shipped in.
2.  Wesley:  An outside shot that if Wilkes were to lose, Wesley would be moved in as a Number 1 seed.... I have been told this is very unlikely, but who knows

I'd love to see a first round  game between Union and Rowan....would be sweet revenge for the Dutchmen as I think they would handle Rowan and pay 'em back for last year's loss.

exactly - sc would more likely see hobart or maybe dickinson - depending on how things shake out.
