Thanks for the incredibly programming of former Duke undergrad, now Havard grad student Bo Waggoner, it's now possible to run a computer program the moment regionals are done and tell you who is going to NCAAs.
We were going to run the program today using the current regional rankings to tell you who gets in, who is left out if everything goes according to the form as we figured that's the best way to start our preview of the regional action next week.
But we need your help. We want to make sure we a) have all of the necessary meets that might produce at large points and b) removed any 'b' teams from those meets.
Here are the meets on the men's side that we're including into the program for at-large points and who we think are 'B' teams. Please let us know of any mistakes.
We currently have B teams for Iona at Paul Short, Stanford at Stanford and Villanova and Portland at Washington Invite. Is this correct?
battle_in_beantown - all a teams.
panorama_farms - all a teams.
paul_short - we currently have taken out Iona from this meet as we believe it's a 'B team'. They ran miller, kowalsky, allen, tario, adamovics, mcClellan, wightman, galford, sullivan, da silva.
greater_louisville - all a teams.
notre_dame_invite - all a teams.
roy_griak - all a teams.
stanford_invite - we took out stanford assuming this was their b team.
washington invite - Who ran B teams? We've said it was Villanova and Portland, but aren't sure about them and stanford (we think it's the A).
# stanford (we think it was their A): sweatt, keelan, atchoo, wharton, miller, gibson, bertolotti
# villanova (we think it was the B): tiernan, basili, warnick, corbusier, hurlbut, o'sullivan, trainer
# portland (we think it was the B): goehler, thies, symmes, hay, rocereto, o'hollearn, borg,
prenats - all a teams.
wisconsin_invite - all a teams.
chile_pepper - all a teams.
Conference meets - all a teams.
So tell us if we are wrong about any of the 'B' team assumptions and if we are missing any meets.
