    Re: Playoff selection process to be explained further to participating members

    For transparency sake, we start every season with a clean slate and all teams have an equal chance of losing out on an at large bid to a 7-4 UNH.

    I laughed harder at this than I should have. Unfortunately, it is true.

    EKU was at large ... paid big bucks to get that bid. Norfolk was a bad autobid. Maine had only decent win in round of 16 but lost in round of 8. Very bad year for CAA and selection committtee.
    hmmm ... somebody deleted a post stating only 4 CAA teams missed made playoffs in 2011

    As it should be!

    For the record, the five UNH 7-4 regular season teams since 2010 have a combined playoff record of 7-5. I suspect that is substantially better than the entire Patriot League.

    that has to be true .. most of those UNH wins were against Patriot autobids ... and a couple more against MEAC and NEC. In fact, one of your losses was against Patriot autobid. The geography aspect really sucks for Midwest and west teams.

    Let's be clear--it's about the conference you're in. 7-4 in the CAA, you're in contention. Go 8-3 in the PL and...well...forget it.

    No need to remind us, sending really good SDSU teams to lose in Fargo kind of sucked. Especially 2014, that team would’ve made the semis had they not gone to Fargo.

    While regionalization is a fact of life and never going away - only NCAA playoff tournaments seeded nationally are men's and women's basketball - there is one thing I would like to see the committee do to eliminate these kinds of scenarios:

    Create a rule that eliminates conference rematches until AFTER the Round of 16. Schools playing in the same conference but who hadn't met in the regular season would be eligible to play each other in any round.
