Stanford Not Invited? East Coast bias again!

Stanford Not Invited? East Coast bias again!

Postby Scorekeeper » Sun May 03, 2009 7:38 pm

NCAA D-1 tournament seeds just announced and Stanford was left out again after beating No. 3 (and now No. 4 seed) Penn yesterday.

Talk about East Coast prejudice . . . and the Cardinal is ranked 13th in the coaches' poll and the magazine polls.
Invited? Colgate, Fairfield, etc. Give me a break. Stanford's results outside their conference (where they were undefeated) included losses only to four top 10 teams and they had solid nonconference wins, beating Albany, Johns Hopkins and William & Mary. Some selections received "automatics" by winning conferences that probably should not have guaranteed slots any longer, such as the Colonial or the Mid-Atlantic conferences, given how their teams played and ranked in the polls.

Atleast next year MPSF gets an automatic bid. Funny part is 99% of Stanford team if out of state and the NCAA still put it to them. Wasn't like an EBAL team with Cal kids losing out on a ranking to a back east team. The Stanford team is a back east team...

Stanford will just have to beat every one of the east coast teams when they play them, then, huh?
