If I'm understanding things right, MHB and MtUnion would face in a semifinal game (assuming both get that far)....

Bridgewater is a puzzler.  .520 SOS vs Concordia-Moorhead's .571

I'd love to hear how Bridgewater snuck in there.

I'm guessing the final four on the board were Bridgewater, OWU, Concordia Moorhead and Waynesburg

which regions are above the other?  Is the semi in Alliance OH or Belton TX?
I find easily offended people rather offensive!

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

Statistics are like bikinis; what they reveal is interesting, what they hide is essential.

I'd love to hear how Bridgewater snuck in there.

I'm guessing the final four on the board were Bridgewater, Wheaton, Concordia Moorhead and Lycoming.

We'll ask.

Back to cheap NCAA with two first-round in-conference matchups.

I swapped out Lycoming for Waynesburg but still...

The puzzler is taking PLU and then leaving Concordia - Moorhead, unless PLU was the last one taken.

So will we.  Frank has been saying it was a possibility for a couple of weeks.  Interesting they opted to do certain flights and set up rematches (LC, etc) that could have been avoided.

Actually--I would think PLU went before Bethel which left CM on the table....

Does the Committee know how horrible the NEFC is (24th ranked by D3football)?  9-1 in the NEFC is equal to 5-5 in the MIAC, and still Bridgewater's SOS couldn't compete with Concordia.  A regionally ranked win over Endicott means far less than wins by Concordia over unranked Augsburg or St. Olaf.
