That should be a good win over a regionally ranked team.

Game 1  No. 4 Concordia Chicago 9, No. 1 Benedictine 1    
Game 2    No. 2 Rockford 6, No. 3 Marian 2    
Game 3    No. 2 Rockford 10, No. 4 Concordia Chicago 8

NATHC Tourney

Ugly loss for a Concordia IL which was on the bubble for a Pool B/C.

Concordia IL needed to boost their in-region record by sweeping the NATHC tourney, i.e., going 3-0 versus in-region opponents which have better than average records.

St. Scholastica probably wrapped up a Pool B bid with an undefeated run through the UMAC tourney. CSS eked out the championship game, 20-7. The Saints are now 24-3 in-region.

I think that Rockford took Concordia-Chicago out of Pool C, too.

Pool A next year for the NATHC.  Two losses by a team that has a lower regional ranking don't help the #6 team in the Central Region.

I have double-checked the lists of participating teams and conferences.  I count 35 Pool A conferences which have 305 teams.  That gives the access ratio to determine the Pool B bids at 1:8.714.

I count 52 participating teams and an access ratio of 1:8.714.

That should give 5.967 bids, which truncates to 5 Pool B bids.  (I believe that the January 20, 2009 revision of the Handbook is incorrect in its allocation of Pool B and Pool C bids.)

The NAC and NEAC have announced an affiliation/association arrangement to preserve access to Pool A in 2010.

These conferences should coming into Pool A status in the next couple of years:  Capital AC (7 teams); Landmark (7 teams); UMAC (7 teams).  I count 37 conferences by 2011.

Addendum:  Feb 17, 2009 (2nd update) has rounded the number of Pool B bids up to 6.

Why dont they just combine the POOL B & C pools into 1 pool ?

NCAA and simplicity do not go together.

Because Pool B functions as the allocation of bids for schools that do not have access to the AQ via the Pool A conferences.  :)

The first ranking conference call occurs on Thursday April 23rd.  That will give us a good idea of which teams are in contention for Pool B bids.

CSS (St Scholastica)  -- shoo-in?

Will Chapman be regionally ranked in the West?

Will Emory be regionally ranked in the South?

Does the Capital AC get one or 2 teams in Pool B?

Ithaca?
