Re: Restructuring the team tourny incuding the 3 weekend NCAA idea..
This new format creates a new dividing point between the teams ending the season ranked four and that team ranked 5, because the top four teams would be expected to host the second weekend as well.
For those top 16 teams, the matches usually only get tough the second weekend, but only the top four teams would have the huge advantage of playing at home.
Here is the language.
The top 16 seeds, if bid requirements were met, would continue to host first/second
rounds. For the regional weekend, the highest seeds remaining would host as long
as bid requirements were met. A stipend would be paid to both the first/second round
(current policy) and regional host sites to cover costs.
Do you read the effect the same way??
