Is there yet a website for this event?  Hoping to find the bracket, scheduling, etc.  Thanks.

5 first timers and 2 second timers. That's going to make it fun. When will a schedule be posted?

Thanks for posting this!  Seems that the national rankings are not a factor in the draw.  Is it completely random, or done with some rotation based on the regions?

Glad to see the two Texas teams in different brackets.

Championship committee does it based on the published selection criteria. National rankings are done by outside sources and are not part of the selection criteria.

Just out of curiosity, would these match-ups be the same regardless of who won each of the 8 Regionals or might they be different had Webster or Whitewater won the Central for example?

Likely different, but possible just slightly.  The bracket isn't made until all teams have clinched, which is much better than in years past when the times/match ups were pre-determined.  I remember playing in the WS in Virginia and playing the 9am game on day 1.  Making a West Coast team play at 9am was brutal, although we did smoke Cortland so it didn't hurt us too bad.

Was that in '95?

Welcome to Northeast Wisconsin!

If you have any questions about the area, other events, attractions, etc. - just let me know...

And, one technical note for those typing bylines, or perhaps for online directions, etc, the stadium itself is in Grand Chute, not Appleton.
