The 2018 JuCo National Tournament

Playoffs across the country either started this past weekend or this up coming weekend. All with the final goal of reaching Grand Junction, Colorado to win a National Championship. They way teams make it there in two ways. One by Winning their Region and Getting the Bid (Regions 5, 6, 8, 14, and 22). The other by Winning their Region then going to a Distract Tournament which acts somewhat like a Super Regional from Division (Western= Regions 1, 9, 18, South Central= Regions 2, 16, 23, Northern= Regions 4, 11, 24, East Central= Regions 7, 17, Eastern= Regions 10, 15, 20)

What if trip to Grand Junction was Formed more like they do in Division 1? 16 Regionals, 8 Super Regionals, 8 Teams making it to Grand Junction, With 1 coming out on top? Well here is theoretically what it could/would look like.

The Top 8 Seeds would be

#1 Walters State

#2 Cisco

#3 Arizona Western

#4 Connors State

#5 San Jac

#6 Iowa Western

#7 McLennan

#8 State College of Florida

The rest of the Regionals would be

#9 South Mountain

#10 Crowder

#11 Central Arizona

#12 Jefferson County

#13 Wabash Valley

#14 Grayson

#15 Seminole State (Ok)

#16 Blinn

Once they got to Grand Junction the winners of Super Region 1 would Play the winners of Super Region 8, SR2 vs SR7, SR3 vs SR6, SR4 vs SR5. Keeping with the Double Elimination Until only two teams were left playing a best of 3 Series to decide who takes home the National Title.

Where do you fall? Do you think your team could make a run if the Play-offs were Structured this way? Could we see a Cinderella team Break through? Who would have the Hardest road to Grand Junction?
