: the womens softball tourney did rank the top 16. I think it uses the same format (has to), simply did not acknowledge the balance of seeding through 16.
:: The purpose of only seeding 8 teams is that if all 8 win in the regional round none of them can meet in a super regional. That pretty much never happens though so it's not really an issue. As they stated on the selection show today, only one seeded team has won the CWS since they began seeding the top 8 teams. The Devils were the #1 seed last year and although they did make the CWS again, it wasn't a good showing in Omaha. Hopefully they perform well in an underdog role in the super regionals. Gotta pound the Razorbacks first.
