Obviously not, Central Florida is on that list.

ah, the old bait and switch.

Tell everyone you'll use the same, successful format from last year,
and then less than a week before the tournament, announce that you're
doing something completely different, ditching the advertised format.
Nice.

From the TIV site:

Initial placement is determined by the previous season's year end RRI
(except for Invitational Tier, and Tier IV, which is determined by the
participating teams). Teams will then be placed into pools within
their Tier. A team's finish in the pools during the Initial Placement
phase then dictates distribution into the Tier Differentiation Phase.

During Tier Differentiation, teams will play in new pools to determine
their placement in the Tiered Bracket play. The Championship Bracket
will be comprised of eight pool play winners from within the Elite
Tier Differentiation and the eight teams from Showcase Division.
Every team from the 48 Teams in The Invitational Tier and Tiers I-III
has the potential to win the tournament. Teams participating from Tier
IV can advance to the Select Tier Differentiation and then as high as
the Tier III Bracket Play.
In order to give teams the best access to parity in competition, teams
can elect to participate in Tier IV in the Men's Division, and a
distinct Grouping in the Women's Division. Please note your interest
in Tier IV when registering your team.

It also appears from what they have posted that there is not a way to
play up or down, I sure hope that isn't the case. The draw of big
tournaments like this is the opportunity to play good teams. If there
is no play-ins than what we have is not the biggest tournament
ever...just two tournaments held at the same time/place. I realize
everything is not set yet, but so far I am not impressed with the
format. Every team better get nine games or else I see Cultimate's
stock falling even lower.

Yea, no real surprise to see Cultimate fucking people over. They
already had all of the bid money, why deliver the goods? I realize it
doesn't seem finalized, but from what they're showing on the UPA site,
theres no chance for 60 of the teams in attendance to compete for the
title. That's a complete departure of format from last year. How can
you tell me that if you win every game, you don't deserve a shot to
take down a high caliber team? Even the BCS gave Utah a bowl game...

How are SDSU and Claremont on that list? Did the Vegas TDs even look
at this year's results before making the schedule?

At the very least it will show the UPA what there bid allocation is
really worth. My money is that at least 3 NW teams will finish higher
then 2 SW teams. And the NW is sans Cal.

I think you meant 'My money is that at least 3 NW teams will finish
higher
then all but 2 SW teams.' Otherwise you're not predicting much.
