OH-Indiana push does not occur because the 31st team can't be in on a push. UCLA blocked out by the ASU-Cal Poly push.
|At large and push pin bids|
At large bids:
It's very late but here's what I came up with after following the NCAA guidelines as best I could.
Not sure if the last pick (Syracuse vs. Florida vs. Indiana will hold up as it was a three way tie).
William & Mary
Cal Poly SLO
Two pushes used: Virginia pushed in William & Mary and Arizona State pushed in Cal Poly.
New rules don't allow for teams to be blocked. Always two teams per region on the board at any one time in comparing for at-large bids.
All auto qualifier teams had "A Teams" on the line for their losses (i.e. -- Wisconsin at Pre-NCAAs had at least 4 of the 7 runnerrs they ran at the GL Regional meet today).
Excellent post. I posted my thoughts on another thread but this is it. Syracuse has Florida beat so they are out. Syracuse / Indiana. How does one break them? Both got points at conference. Common opponents are Michigan and Villanova. Indiana lost to Villanova, Syracuse beat them at conference. Indiana beat Michigan at conference, Syracuse lost to them at PreNats. The handbook is sketchy on further tiebreaker. Think it comes down to the individuals.
Well, this comment is wrong IU does not have a pull over Syracuse. I have come to the conclusion that both teams have beaten an exchanged opponent. Syracuse beat Villanova, so that is one point as well. According to the handbook, it would have to come down to how each team did at regionals overall. It's up in the air... Sincerly Chebazz
