    Gee, no west coast teams. I wonder why? And someone remind me, in the last 10 years, now many times have west coast teams won the tamale?

    In the last 10 years the West Coast has 1 championship. UC Santa Barbara in 2006.

    UCLA has also played in a couple and New Mexico and Creighton have multiple trips to the college cup in that span. Alright, New Mexico and Creighton aren't on the Coast, but I think they count as West (like Notre Dame/Indiana/Akron being East Coast schools)
