They're also trying to get a standardized ratio of participating teams to regions across all d3 sports.  Other sports are not in as workable positions as d3.  I think it's a good idea, although I'm struggling to think about how a ten team selection table is going to work out.  That's rough.  From that perspective I'd almost rather see five regions of 90 than ten regions of 45.

Enjoyed your tournament preview, Ryan. Very comprehensive. You even included a picture of a red-faced (and sportscoat-clad) Grey Giovanine yelling something in the background of one of your pictures. ;)

Thanks for the kind words.  Pat gets credit for the photo selection - and also for cleaning up some of my more awkward phrasing.  The picks are mine, though.

It will be interesting to see how non-host hosts do. Amherst and Oshkosh probably should be hosting, but the women get the honors and Wittenberg probably should be hosting but couldn't the opening weekend.

Does the committee already know who put in bids/can't because of the women hosting rights?

Emory would have had to fly to Wittenberg, whereas Guilford is drivable for all the schools.  This may have been a factor in Guilford hosting.

The two committees have to share info. One year back in the earlier part of this decade, this was a disaster and balls were dropped, but we haven't seen any issues since then.

And all 48 with variants of the Baruch-style football play!  (Of course. with Wooster using one of these against the Barookadookas tonight.)
