    And because there are so many teams east of Rockies, and they don't ever travel to West, West Coast gets the shaft. But year after year, West Coast teams miraculously sneak through into semi's, and often win title. I'm sorry, but some of those dinky poo eastern teams would be lucky to win a single match in the Pac12. But it's the same in many sports -- if West Coast got fair allocation in (soccer and baseball for sure) they would completely dominate the tournaments.

    Allan: For the past umpteenth years I've been saying what you've posted, that as a West Coaster I have now seen teams west of the Rockies get screwed over... and I've just over four decades of complaining, bitching, and speaking out about just how our side of the country gets the royal shaft. As a former head coach (4-year and community colleges) as well as an AD, it is utterly pathetic to see us get looked over, and I am so very sad to say that SA and the so-called sponsored corporations pay nothing but lip service to all of the excellent teams in our neck of the woods, in both MW NACC D1,2,& 3, as well as NCJAA D1, 2, & 3, as well as NAIA teams. As to when will SA, writers, or others will give us break, who knows, meantime all we can do is continue to "sneak through!" Good luck to ALL of the MW teams west of the Rockies!!!

    I agree on the West Coast teams being disrespected, as are teams who are not in the "big" conferences. How does Akron, ranked #1 in all four polls and #2 in RPI (behind #1-seed Notre Dame) get seeded at #5?
