In the 08 division six teams get auto-bids so three will get a chance to play in. Much better than the EHF which places you in a life-long state of purgatory just because you don't play for a founding member team. Ask the 08 Providence Fryers which system they would prefer.
But next year it'll be different...the EHF will have a few Elite openings when your most competitive programs move to the E9... Thanks RG!!!
