Ralph Turner:
What I like about this field is that the 5 West Region teams were dispersed to 3 regionals.

The West Region has been outstanding in the last few years:  2013 champ - Linfield; 2016 champ - Trinity; 2017 champ - Cal Lutheran; 2018 champ UT- Tyler ,ow D-2; 2018 runner-up Texas Lutheran; 2019 Champ - Chapman.

I also like the first round game of Trinity and Chapman.

Chapman is my Dark Horse to win it all.

Ralph,
 How does the bracketing go in a regional? Ryan offered a layout that doesn't seem reasonable for a seeded tourney: instead of byes in the 1st round for the top 2 seeds, he has 1 vs 6, 2 vs 5, and 3 vs 4 with the winner of 1/6 playing the winner of the losers 2/5-3/4 in their next round.

Hi Ronk,

The NCAA has used a standard 6-team bracket for as long as I can remember (~20 years).

Here it is on Page 9 of this year's Championship Handbook.

IMHO, the #1 seed gets the 2 weakest teams for the 1st 2 games.
#2 seed gets the next weakest 2 teams.
#3 and #4 are in the middle.
