But...if you look at the bracket, a D team would have to win two games to get a shot at Smith. One D team opens against a AA and the other opens against an A. We'll not even count how many games an E team would have to win to have a shot at Smith. Likely, Smith's second game is gonna be against either a AA or A team. So what it comes down to is once the local teams are done with their opening round "hey we were on the field at a conference tournament and wen 0-2" which field of teams is more high quality.
Anyone can sign up locally, the conference teams pick their schedule before the season even starts of here's where we're going. Once the number of conference teams is filled, its then first come first serve for non-conference teams to enter. No way any conference team knows how many or what level local teams are signing up when they finalize their schedule in January. So kinda hard to say Smith handpicked this one for the local teams that would be present.
