Performance at the end of the season is not a criteria in Division III. The Game 1 counts the same as Game 40 (theoretically anyway). The head-to-head pairing is what may put UWW in front UWSP "at the table" when Pool C's are being discussed.

So how will the last regional ranking shake out?  Here is my guess...

1. LAX
2. St. Thomas
3. Whitewater
4. CSS
5. Aurora
6. Conc Ill
7.  St. Johns
8.  Stevens Point

I could see LAX and STU being flipped if the Tommies come back and win their tourney today.  How far does St. Johns climb if they win the MIAC tourney?

There is going to be some interesting match-ups at the regional... will be curious to see how it lines up if it does become an 8 team event.

Even if the Midwest is an 8-team regional, I doubt that 8 teams from the Midwest make it. Look for the central to sen a team or two... IWU, North Park or Coe... Maybe St. Norbert. NPU should head to TN but logistically, IWU could bus there. NCAA should reward NpU by keeping them in home region.

Midwest regional teams?:

St Thomas
St Scholastica
La Crosse
Whitewater
St. Norbert(from central)
Coe (from central)
Aurora
IWU (from central)?
St Johns (if they the MIAC today)
Either Chicago, NPU, or CUC?

Tons of NCAA flexibility in this region.

If St. Thomas comes back and wins a pair today, could they or La Crosse be sent out West as a #1 seed?

my guess (without knowing exact in-region records and what not)

1. St. Thomas (if they win 2 today)
2. LAX
3. CSS---probably end up being 4
4. Aurora
5. UWW---have a hard time putting them any higher considering they went 2-8 against UST (1-1), LAX (0-6), CSS (1-1)
6.  Concordia
7. St. Johns (if win today)
8.  ?? Don't think I have ever seen more than 6 teams ranked so ill stop at 7.

This is what I think, but what I think and what the NCAA thinks are 2 different things

That would be a travesty & extremely unfair to either team and their families and friends.  What was La Crosse supposed to do - lie down and lose their first two games in the WIAC tournament on purpose in order to stay closer to home?  Maybe two 10 run losses instead of two 10 run wins?  A #1 or #2 seed usually carries some perks beyond playing lower seeds, and I don't buy any of the talk of making it an easier route to Appleton for them in a weaker regional.

St Johns puts up a 7 spot in the bottom of 3 in game 2 to go up 7-1.

St. Johns wins 10-5 for the MIAC AQ. Throws a little wrench into things

So... Will St. Johns go west? Maybe St. Norbert? Maybe both...

Are the C candidates from the Midwest or the Central in better shape, cause I don't see how there is room for more than 2 teams out of WW, Conc C, North Park and Ill Weslyan.  Do you take one from each region, or do you just take the two better teams?  And who are they?

North park won the CCIW pool A bid. No longer a pool C team.
