Just doing a quick check on the TES calculator, there are a couple schools available (maybe).

The quest for schools not in your conference restricts Stanford's chances to only a few schools, and the 400 mile rule restricts things further. Also, the potential schools can't themselves be ranked in the top 16. Those schools are in different brackets for the first two rounds.


So, the pools for Stanford looks like Long Beach State (RPI 27), and (maybe) Loyola Marymount (RPI 47). Those are the same two schools that UCLA has to draw from. Last year schools to RPI 47 made the tournament, so LMU is by no means guaranteed

Don't forget about Cal.

I *think* the rule is that teams from the same conference can't play in the first round and that second round match-ups are strongly discouraged but not totally forbidden.

Wouldn't surprise me to see the committee put Stanford and Cal in the same pod and headed for a second-round match... seems like they are pretty serious about this travel cost stuff.

Oh I know, but.... I thought (I could be wrong) that the rule only applies strictly to first round match-ups and that second-round match-ups, while not wanted, are still allowable.

EDIT: Ha ha... well, I think I'm confusing myself. Apparently I knew the rule definitely applied in the first two rounds a month ago. Embarassed

Here's part of the NCAA memo that explains it.

The cabinet also considered an additional tier of recommendations but deferred action pending membership review:

Increase the travel policy mileage-limitation from 300 miles to 350 miles for Division I menís and womenís basketball and increase the policy regarding ground commute from the nearest airport to the championships site from 120 to 150 miles.
Limit seeded teams to 25 percent of the bracket and require all sports (excluding menís and womenís basketball) to adhere to the cabinetís seeding/pairing principles. This includes a requirement that teams should be placed in brackets per NCAA Bylaw 31.1.3.2.5 (geographically).
In sports other than menís and womenís basketball, limit the mandated avoidance of conference match-ups to first-round games. For example, it would be permissible for teams from the same conference to play against each other in the second game of a regional.

Does anyone else think that with the economic focus of the NCAA at this time, that it may benefit Portland finally to be the most fiscally viable host site?

So, Geez... just to make sure I'm reading that correctly, that was a recommendation that has not yet been acted on, right? So it is definitely still in place?

Quick... where are the lawyers on this board! Smile

If you look at the excerpt I quoted, you'll see.


teams should be placed in brackets per NCAA Bylaw 31.1.3.2.5 (geographically)

This is significant because Bylaw 31.1.3.2.1 says that potential for income is a consideration. If this change is instituted, it would seem to exclude that provision.

That is correct. The 2 game non-conference rule is still in effect. There was an NCAA meeting this weekend that theoretically could have ruled to cut it back to 1 game, but I have seen no press release that they have (yet).

Well well well... imagine what a pickle the NCAA could find itself in.

Imagine this scenerio... UCLA, USC, Portland, Stanford, and Washington all get seeds. A lot of west coast seeds will have to hit the road... even if WSU, Cal, and Portland State all make it.

And if Weber State wins the Big Sky, they wouldn't fit in the travel radius. Northern Arizona should for an LA team...

NAU is too far, according to the TES calculator

UCLA-NAU = 483 miles

as much as I wouldn't like to play Washington in the 2nd round... I would prefer to play at home and play them, than go on the road and not play them.

Oregon may be a surprise if they win a game next week. They have USC and UCLA. They beat those schools when they weren't supposed to have a chance before. It looks like this time if they did it, they could get in.

Drilling down a bit more... looks like UW, USC, and San Diego are all borderline seeded teams right now.

If USD beats us (heaven forbid!) they likely will work their way into a seed.

Yes indeed... that's the key for sure!

But even if they don't...

Portland (host)
Washington
TEAM X (Portland State?)
TEAM Y

UCLA (host)
San Diego/LMU (?)
Long Beach State
TEAM X

Forced to travel:
Stanford
Cal

Lmu and Long Beach are within range of both UCLA and Stanford. They could spit those schools so each 1 seed stays home.

USC and San Diego is a natural if either gets seeded. Or they could ship in a seeded school.

You all are way too smart. Here are the rankings for the top 85, with their adjusted RPIs. I used the top 85 because #80 is the break point for the second tier of bonus points for wins/ties over teams #80 or lower. I'll get these up now and will comment later.

It looks like next year we should get North Carolina in our non-conf schedule along with Stanford and UCLA to have a chance at a number one seed. Crying or Very sad

Chin up, Auto Pilot. The WCC was weak this year, and we'll still get a boost from the San Diego game.

Normally Santa Clara would be Top 10. That just didn't happen this year.
