I won't pretend to know the whole country - so will predict the South: Rock Solid: 1) (3)Wake 15-3 (8th rated schedule) 2) (5)UNC 12-3-4 (6th) 3) (21)FIU 13-3-2 (72nd) - already have automatic as Atlantic Soccer champs 4) Southern Conference winner (no at-large/real longshot only if lots from the South go): (41)Davidson 12-5-2 (99th) - 0-3 vs top 25 (48)College of Charleston 11-3-3 (111th) - 0-0 vs top 25 (64)UNC-G 9-7-2 (58th) -1-3 vs. top 25 That is 4 guarantees from the South. 5 teams if ACC winner is from South region and not Wake I believe that Big South (Coastal Carolina) is considered South Atlantic Region The rest of the south look very shaky to me - I think all of these teams need automatic bids or else.....- the records below assume one more loss in conference play: (29) - Clemson 8 losses 2 ties, 1-5 vs. top 25 (46) - UAB 5 losses - 4 ties, 0-1-2 vs. top 25 (49) - USC 7 losses (still have FIU) - no quality wins (77) - NC State 8 losses, 2 ties - 0-3-2 vs. top 25 The rest of the south is rated below 50 on the computer - I can't imagine them sneaking that high up to get an at large when only 48 teams go. There are 23 automatic bids and 25 at-large. Who am I missing? What other conferences have autos that might add to the # of temas in the south? How many from the South went last year?
