    Don’t lose to Central Washington or West Texas A&M and Midwestern makes the playoffs. Losing 2 games puts you at the mercy of the committee.

      As the MIAA Columnist, I was shocked that Washburn got the nod over Ouachita Baptist.

        I can’t figure this one out either. I thought for sure after Ouachita beat Henderson they’d put them to give the MIAA two and the GAC two in SR3. I guess Ouachita’s loss to SEOSU hurt them more than I thought it was going to or maybe the committee is punishing them for loosing to Lindenwood in the first round in 2019.

          All the numbers were identical for Washburn and Ouachita except record vs teams ranked by the committee. Washburn was 1-1 and Ouachita was 1-2. I’m guessing Washburn’s win over NWMSU put them ahead of Ouachita. I think the MIAA is the better league but there is no way to prove it with silo scheduling. I’m happy for the MIAA but the logic is highly questionable.

            Yes. We all assume the committee gave the 8th, 9th and 10th spots in SR3 to Ouachita, Henderson and SE Ok. Is it possible one of the was Pitt?

              No, because then Washburn would’ve been 2-1 vs ranked teams and Ouachita would’ve been 1-1. SEOK being the 10 gave Harding the advantage of NWMSU for the 2 seed but didn’t really impact the 7 spot.

                Ok. I keep forgetting that a loss to a ranked team (I.e., Harding’s 1-pt. loss to SE Ok) helps you in comparison to losing to an unranked team

                  It doesn't exactly. If anything, UNK was helped by one of their losses being to a sub-.500 team.

                    I admit I'm no fan of the ranked team component. It's circular at best. And for the most part the SOS/OWP should cover it. True, they also use teams over .500, but still how do you rank teams using a metric that used that same rank? Sounds confusing?

                      It hurt NWMSU’s resume because they would’ve had another ranked opponent win. Then again, Harding would’ve been 2-0 and NW at 2-1. I believe if Fort Hays had beaten Pitt State to get to 6-5 that NWMSU would’ve been the 2 seed because they would’ve been 5-1 vs above .500 compared to 4-1 for Harding.

                        Wow. This is a lot more complicated than I thought. I think I’ll just give up on trying.
