I think SJF, W&L & Wheaton get to the table way before Louisiana because of SOS and probably before Endicott and IC.
Perhaps that should
happen, but wally has pointed out, the committee has show a strong preference for one-loss teams. wally's scenario is quite plausible, although I really think that it SHOULDN'T unfold that way.
W & L is 8-2 with no wins over regionally ranked teams and is currently unranked, while LaCollege is ranked #9 in the latest regional rankings. Assuming LaCollege beats HSU this week, it's hard to see how W & L jumps ahead of them now.
SJF could be stuck behind Endicott because they'll be 8-2 to Endicott's 9-1, and they are currently behind Endicott in the regional rankins. There is a precedent here for a 9-1 NEFC team to be selected as a Pool C (Curry in 2008).
Wheaton is 8-2 and is currently ranked behind CWRU in the regional rankings; while they probably are a better team, it's not that farfetched to imagine them sitting there waiting behind CWRU for a while.
IWU, Redlands, McMurry, and Centre all seem deserving of Pool C's, but Endicott and Illinois College probably aren't. I'd much prefer to see the NJAC runner-up in place of Endicott (which is conceivable, as Kean & Montclair are currently #3 and #4 in the regional rankings...they might end up on the board before Endicott even with an 8-2 record), and despite my misgivings about CWRU, I think that they deserve to go before Illinois College (although I see why wally thinks that might happen).
