On Whitman: I saw you lost last year at Platteville to NW,the national champs! I think you guys lose because of the schedule you play and always being on the Road! I know the NCAA is cheap, but always playing on the road is unfair to you,considering your record! You play an unfair uphill battle! my sympathy to you!

Feel free to read the post I put in the NESCAC board about this. It will help.

When you left the boards, the idea of anyone getting to host three teams all flown in to the same pod was unheard of. It happens now. A lot has changed with the "cheap NCAA."

d-mac....PC knows I'm a NWC honk.  I don't want an advantage, I just don't want to be disadvantaged.

I might be stirring up an outside fluid or written in stone constitution argument, but I reason before the island conferences were accepted into NCAA III someone should have anticipated having to cross the Rockies.

I'm also tired of getting 3.18 % on my savings and TSAs.

Those conferences applied, knowing the rules and restrictions.  I think the problem is too many people compare d3 to d1 and get upset, when they should be comparing 2019 to 2009 or 1999 and they'd be ecstatic.  I also believe Whitman wouldn't want excuses like travel made for them.  Yeah, it's more difficult, but I can't believe it's what Brigdeland or any of the guys would point to as a difference in that game.

Honestly, CNU might want to thank Whitman; I'm not sure they'd've gotten by Williams without the fatigue from the night before.  Whitman would've beaten Williams with two or three more minutes on the clock.  It looked like a lot of their competitive games this year, Williams simply held out just long enough.

Yep. The first appearance by a SCIAC team in the tourney was by Whittier all the way back in 1979. Whittier even hosted during the first weekend.
