Davenport and Lindenwood are a caliber above all the other teams. Lindenwood will have a real challenge to get their third Championship in a row if they come up against the Panthers.

Generally speaking, I agree, but I should point out that neither won their conferences' playoff championships. LU and DU definitely the two favorites, but at the same time, I don't remember things ever being this wide open. Everyone 1-12 has at least a decent shot at the semifinals, and I could legitimately see 5 or 6 teams taking the whole thing.
