First, Nice work Tarr. The three teams I'll be pulling for at natties are Purdue, NCST (Go AC!) and Texas ( gotta pull for Cara of Ibsen Warriors fame). I was looking at the teams that made natties and I started to try to seed them, and I realized that I have absolutely no idea how to do it. Carleton over Iowa at regionals means that any seedings are going to have some strange things (maybe it's time to get rid of the rule that requires a team that finishes higher at regionals to be seeded higher at natties?). I think basically you're left with the choice of either pushing Carleton too high or Iowa too low. I decided to push Carleton way up, in order to keep Iowa among the top teams. The things that I think I might have wrong - Purdue may be too low. Posted a great regular season record, but not a lot of big name wins. Win over UNC could possibly push them higher. NCST could be too high - posted a great regular season record including a bunch of wins over quality in-region teams, but didn't travel much (reminiscent of UVA last year). Win over Texas at Easterns puts them high.
Anyway here's my first stab at it:
2) North Carolina State
16) Texas A&M
