FWIW, they should count a situation like the Bethel win over SJU as a Regionally Ranked victory, since the loss to Bethel is what knocks them out of the Rankings. It's kind of a Catch-22.

Bethel likely has 3 wins over RRO as well. Plus their SOS number is now a good deal stronger than UWW.

We won't know how they do it. But I think the case can be made for either. And UWW getting jumped wouldn't be out of the question based on criteria.

Why not just go with the criteria "once ranked, always ranked?"

New year, new regional rankings?

To start the comments from anyone, and everyone, here goes.   Strange year, with only two unbeatens left in the West.    Based on what I have seen so far, here are my picks for the West Region playoffs:

1.  UW-Whitewater
2.  Wartburg
3.  Bethel
4.  Linfield
5.  Chapman
6.  St. John's
7.  UW - Platteville
8.  St. Scholastica

Of course this can change depending on the next two games.

The Linfield loss makes things interesting in the West. I wonder if the loss will allow the committee to ship MHB out here come playoff time, with Wartburg being the #2. That's assuming UWW goes North with Wheaton and the Bethel/St. John's winner.

Then of course Welsey will be the top dog in the South and UMU in the East.

Decent attempt, but you left out the MWC. Not always an even 8 per region...and not really regions in the traditional sense anymore.

This.  jknezek just mentioned on the Pool C thread, and I agree. 

Wally had a nice post a few weeks ago illustrating this:

2013:
Quad1-  3E, 2N, 3S
Quad2- 4N, 4W
Quad3- 1N, 3S, 4W
Quad4- 5E, 1N, 1S, 1W

2012:
Quad1-  2N, 6W
Quad2- 1E, 3N, 1S, 3W
Quad3- 3E, 2N, 3S
Quad4- 4E, 1N, 3S

2011:
Quad1-  3E, 2N, 2S, 1W
Quad2- 3E, 1N, 1S, 3W
Quad3- 1E, 4S, 3W
Quad4- 4N, 2S, 2W

There is no "West Region" playoff bracket.  Nor any other region.  The NCAA selects the four #1 seeds and builds a bracket around each one however possible.

I could be wrong...but I think George may have been attempting to provide a stab at the Regional Rankings(?)--not a playoff pod (despite his mention of the word playoff)....

Well, then it's two slots short of being a regional ranking...and has St. Scholastica ranked  ???

Well they are undeafeated. But I have other teams just outside my West top ten (like PLU, Pacific, Redlands, Central, UWSP, UWO) that I'm sure would just roll the Saints.  Same holds for the two one-loss teams from the MWC - I just couldn't find room for them.

D-train, you're right.    I messed up and did not notice that the MWC had two divisions     I assume the conference champ will get an automatic bid.
