Hypothetically, of couse, if Williams and Amherst could have played 10 games, and we were betting men, who would have won the most games?  My vote to Amherst 7-3

If the Final Four was on the line, then I'd vote Williams 10-0   :P

The smart money generally comes out well ahead by taking advantage of emotional (and what the smart money regards as foolish) money.

... and all the good luck bad luck, goal post "blocked shots" etc etc evens out.  Anyway, Good Luck to Williams College for a 2012 D-III National Soccer Championship.

Nice Job by the NCAA on the Williams/ON broadcast.  ON up 3-1 with less than 6 min to go.

The NCAA did a great with the finals, the stronger side of the brackett won out, glad to see the dominating team win. I believe the NESCAC will return to the final four next year with Brandeis making another statement. I watched Williams steal a game from them this year and they were clearly the better team but lost. Show me the facts.

Many knowledgeable persons claim that one is what the scoreboard says one is.

Ditka Frank, did you ever play in a soccer game, dominate for 85 minutes, then lose on a prayer? Did you watch Messiah last year? No sport replicates the game of soccer. Promise not to use my 85' Bears coach anymore. ;)

Spencer Noon gets dissed by d3 AA...not sure why again I will say a HEAVY midwestern bias.....for the east Ocel was ok but he is no where near the type of danger Noon was.

The regions are "put together" by the NCAA.
