    First time we've had a winning record in the P12. Damn straight we should be in.

    Arizona State is hosting a first round match, in my book that means CU should as well.

    Ouch - A Buff win gets them a date, most likely, with North Carolina in the second round.

    CU defeated BYU last season in the second round in Tallahassee before loosing to Florida State.

    Is it just me or did the NCAA base the bracket on rpi rankings?

    http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/soccer-women/d1/ncaa-womens-soccer-rpi

    CU finishes 3rd in the pac-12, but they face a 2 seed in the next round if they advance.

    Washington and Washington St. finish tied for 5th with California, and they appear to have more favorable opponents in the bracket with Washington getting a 4 seed.

    If they went by conference standings, the BYU/CU match should be switched with the Seattle/Wash St match in the bracket.

    Coach Sanchez should learn from this tournament selection and get a tougher schedule for next year. Don't schedule Bryant or Detroit and get some higher rpi teams into Boulder.

    I know that the volleyball NCAA tourney goes very heavily by rpi. So it would stand to reason that the soccer one does also. As you say, now that the Buffs are improved to this level, they need to be scheduling the non-conference matches with rpi in mind.
