We are in.
6/2/2013 12:09 PM
Hillsdale is in too. I haven't heard from him yet, but I'm sure Cal St Stanislaus is in because he site mailed me in the season that he wanted to defend his title. So just waiting on UWP and B-A. Indianapolis and Longwood would be their backups should either decline.
6/2/2013 12:59 PM
Yep. We're in
6/2/2013 7:12 PM
yep, thanks for the invite.

Still two slots left. UW-Parkside declined. Belmont-Abbey no response. Invitations extended to Indianapolis and Longwood.

If you are a team on the outside looking in, keep slots 5-9 open just in case I need to reach even further to fill one of these last 2 slots.

I've got a commitment from Longwood provided we don't hear something from B-A before I fill the final slot.

To help everyone as you schedule, Indianapolis is U. of Indianapolis, so you won't find it in the "I's".  I always forget and make that mistake.

Well this is going to be one brutal Yarnell.  3 teams in the top 10, another ranked #20 and the final 2 are the first 2 out of the top 25 at 26 and 27.  Yikes.

No doubt. I will have to do all I can to keep from going 0-5 in this bad boy.
