Locations set for Men's Division II Regionals

BOULDER, Colo. – The Men’s Collegiate Championship Committee has determined the locations for the Men’s Division II Regionals Nov. 23-24. This season’s hosting universities will be Salisbury, James Madison and St. Louis.

DII incorporates a combination of post-season selections for the Automatic Qualification teams emerging from the 13 eligible Geographical Union leagues and conferences, two at-large opportunities for otherwise deserving and eligible teams, and a play-in opportunity for the top teams from the Gold Coast and Frontier leagues.

One team will advance from four Regional pools to make up the DII National Championships from Dec. 7-8 at Furman University.

During the next two weeks, the majority of DII conferences will be completing their individual playoffs to determine which schools will represent their conferences at Regionals.

Here is a look at the four Regional events and the conferences each will host:

Northeast - Salisbury University (Salisbury, MD)
Empire Upstate
New England
Potomac
Rugby Northeast

Mid-Atlantic - James Madison University (Harrisonburg, VA)
Cardinals
Great Lakes
Tri-State
At-large

South - James Madison University (Harrisonburg, VA)
MARC
Southern
WI-IL
At-large

West - St. Louis University (St. Louis, Missouri)
Deep South
Gateway
Gold Coast/Frontier
Northern Lights

Teams may appeal for an at-large consideration by completing and returning the Men's DII At-Large Application.

    Winona state should have received one of the at- large bids...

    How did Winona State not get an at large bid? Decision making for that bid was definitely skewed.

    Don't be bitter. Illinois deserved it.

    Extremely competitive south bracket. Ex-national champion, two time semi-finalist, and 3 time national qualifier, not to mention a varsity program.

    Winona state and Illinois should play each other and have that be the deciding factor. Hell lets set up a game in the spring. I think we are a better team than Illinois

    Unfortunately, a 6-1 record, with a “marquee” victory being a road win by around 15 and a 30 point loss on the road to your conference champ wasn’t seen as being better than Illinois State’s 8-1 record, with quality wins over two 1 loss teams (one in the playoffs by 21), and an equally bad loss to their conference champ, Whitewater. Completely agree they should play in 2014.
