Here is a possible bracket for this year where I have picked 16 pods of 4 teams.

I used the top 16 as my seeds from UPSF latest update. Committee will likely mess with that.

BC, Uconn, BU and Harvard

VT, MSU,Davidson, Georgia

PSU, MD, Colgate, Vill

UNC, HP, Unc-Wil, Miss

FSU, Aub, Kenn St, St Johns

FL shipped to Marq with Wis, and Mil (how mean for the committee to send them to the cold)

UCF shipped to Loyola, with Monmouth, and Or st.

S. Carolina shipped to Memphis joining Murray st, and Vir

LSU, SE LA, Ark PB, and USC.

Ohio St, WSU, IUPUI, ILL ST

ND, C mich, Dayton, and Pur

In the west:

SCU, Cal, Ok St, Minn

UCLA, SD st, SD, and UC SB

two surprises:

Stanford shipped to BYU with Boise St, and N. AZ

U of P, UW, Den, and A&M


Have fun making your own and comparing to the committee tomorrow!

I think that the committee would try very hard to give #1 seeds home field during the first weekend, UCSB is about 300 miles from Stanford (and is not in their conference). So unless UCSB is a seed (highly unlikely with a 103-ranked RPI and an even win-loss record), I don't think that Stanford will be shipped.

For others of you who want to play the bracket guessing game, I've updated the tool I prepared containing nearly all the information the Women's Soccer Committee will be using. It's on the "Predicting the Bracket" page of the RPI website, in an Excel attachment at the bottom of the page. The name of the attachment is "Bracket Formation Data." You'll want to read the "Bonus Tool" explanation on the webpage, as a prelude to trying to use the tool.

I haven't paid attention to the conference tournament outcomes in years past, but I counted 16 upsets this year. Those conferences which will, most likely, receive multiple bids with an other than expected champion include the Big Ten (PSU), the Big 12 (Ok.St.), the SEC (SC) and the Mountain West (SDS).

Too bad for the pre-tournament champions who represent conferences that will most likely have just one bid and were replaced by the following: Big Sky (N. Ariz), Big South (High Point), Big West (UCSB) (but maybe Cal Poly may get lucky), CAA (UNC, Wilmington), Northeast (Monmouth), Ohio Valley (Murray St.), Southern (Davidson), Southland (SE Louisiana, SWAC (Prairie View), Summit (IUPUI) Sun Belt (Denver), WAC (Reno). Probably, all of these will be gone after the first round.

In reviewing the automatics and possible at larges my question to the Pilot Nation is, when you get your deserved #1 seed, who, other than the one of three Pac 10 teams that surround you, will be put in your pod? I see nobody within range. The closest team that I can find would be Reno (575 miles). Will they fly two other teams out to you or do you think you're going to have to go on the road for the first two rounds?

We'll host with one of the PAC10 teams, and the NCAA will fly two teams in. That's the way is has always been done in the past. If there is no tournament team within 400 miles, we travel. (there are only 6 possibilities, 4 of them PAC10)


Last year it was UW as the local team, and they flew in Texas and Northern Arizona.

This year we host. Probably Oregon State will join us. I'd guess the other teams might be somebody like Denver( a long way, but not close to others and a hub for Portland flights) and Boise State (435 miles).

You got it wrong, it was the other way around. Stanford won 4-1

All I remember about that game was Petrucelli chasing the referee around the field afterward. Laughing

Someone may have posted this already, but, I just noticed that the bracket selection is being broadcast at 8 pm EST; 5 pm PST on ESPN News. I'm going to go workout and watch the show...
