That college men's bracket is terrible. You originally (pre-
tournament) seed B4, B5, A4, and A5 above D1 and C1. However, after
Saturday's play you declare the bottom of the power pool teams(B4, B5,
A4, A5) to be worse than the weaker pools (D1--12 seed, C1--11 seed)
and make the power pool losers play an 8AM game against C2-3 & D2-3.

I'm all for the weaker pool top seeds getting there shot at the lower
power pool seeds but this is a messed up format. The C2-3 & D2-3 get
there shot in pool play against C1 and D1. If they win they move up
if they lose move them to the B bracket.

If you really want that 8AM round it should be C1 and D1 playing in it
and the bye(s) should go to A4 and B4

FYI i'm not involved in this tournament in anyway. I'm not playing or
coaching college nor do i know anyone going to the tournament.

I can't see North Park as a 13 seed in this tournament. I think they
will so so much better.

I have to agree with the comment above, the bracket is not ideal at
all. You are punishing teams 7-10 for being better than teams 11 and
12. You can't have a format where it is advantageous to be seeded
12th instead of 7th.

This is the bracket I used for the same format a couple years ago.
Worked pretty well, although we had unlimited fields to work with,
don't know if that is the case here.

NOTE: this format works better if all 20 teams show up and round 3
isn't rained out.

And i agree that North Park is probably underseeded, but since it
might be better to be in Pool D than A or B, maybe they shouldn't
complain.
