Maybe it wasn’t as complicated as we all made it out to be. It’s as simple as that.
The committee laid it out, just as we always do when we try to analyze where each team will go.
Then after seeing that there were no intraconference matchups, they made one switch – Cornell and Air Force.
The only reasoning I can see behind that is that they wanted to avoid a potential second round matchup between two teams that just played in a championship game.
I guess they couldn’t really do that with the West Regional bracket where Minnesota-Duluth and North Dakota could meet in the next round.
My question would be why only this one change of the bracket.
Otherwise, it’s simple math and laying it out as we do every week.
Have fun next weekend!
