Why don't we just wait til March Madness and have a bracket competition like normal? This sounds complicated and boring.

NYGibril28
02-20-2007, 01:00 PM
I'm saying just get a few people to act as the "Tourney Committee" and just come up with a bracket of 65 teams. Once we have a bracket, just have people vote for the games until we have a National Champion

The only thing is that it is hard to do unless we have conference winners since they get automatic bids. Like Gonzaga, always seems a lock to win the WCC. Not so much of a lock this year, and if they don't win the WCC they are right there on the bubble.

That's another thing the committee could decide. We could either take the current leader or agree on a projected Tourney champion.

I think every current conference leader should be an automatic bid. We also should get all the teams ready and then seed.

Bolded the Patriot League because Bucknell and Holy Cross are both 11-1, Horizon because Wright State currently leads Butler by a 1/2 game, but do you really think they would beat Butler again if they were to play in the Conference Tourney?

GB12
02-20-2007, 04:29 PM
For the Patriot, I'd give it to HC because they have a better overall record and played better opponents. For the Horizon we should stick with Wright State, but Butler will get an at large any way. I'll start on an at large list.
