RE: CAA/Other Opponents
I would expect that these rules have not changed in the past 3-4 years. Have at it:

2013-14 CAA HANDBOOK
Page 44 - SEEDING

4.07 Championship Seeding.
The following procedures will be utilized as a general guideline for seeding for all Association championships in which the complete regular season schedule has been played. In the event that all teams do not play a complete conference schedule, championship seeding will be based on winning percentage in conference contests.

Please refer to Executive Regulation 1.01 and individual sport regulations for specific seeding criteria. [Revised: October 19, 2009]

A. Two Tied Teams:
1. Regular season conference record.
2. Head-to-head competition.
3. If two tied teams split the two games during the regular season, compare each tied team’s record against the team occupying the highest position in the standings and continue down through the standings until one team gains the advantage, thereby winning the higher position. (Ties must be broken from top to bottom.)
See Example Below.
4. If a tie still exists, a coin flip conducted by the Commissioner will be used.


B. Three or More Tied Teams:
1. Compare the combined record of each of the tied teams against the other teams involved in the tie until an advantage is gained. (Example: team A’s combined record against both team B and team C as compared to B’s combined record against both A and C, etc.).
2. If the multiple tie still exists, compare each of the tied teams’ records against the team occupying the highest position in the standings and continue down through the standings until the tie is reduced to a two-team tie (at which time, revert to the two-team process) or until the tie is broken.

3. If a tie still exists, a coin flip conducted by the Commissioner will be used.

Example:
Assume a 2-way tie for the number 1 seed.
Assume a 2-way tie for the number 4 seed.

Here is how the seeds will be determined:
1. The two teams tied for #1 split during the regular season. (tie not broken).
2. The two #1’s had identical records versus #3. (tie not broken).
3. The two #1’s will have their records compared as a “pool” of the teams tied for #4. If an advantage is gained, that team will be the #1 seed and the other will be #2.
In the case of the tie for 4th:
1. The teams split during the regular season. (tie not broken).
2. The teams’ records compared against the opponents’ records starting at the top of the standings
– now with the #1 seed established as the first comparison. [This will not be a “pool” comparison of the two teams that finished the regular season tied because the tie is broken. Further support of the reason why this is not a “pool” comparison of the tied teams is the example of two teams tied for first, but one team swept the other and is the clear #1 seed. There would be no reason to argue a “pool” consideration in that case].




I'm just the provider here...don't ask me to explain them.

The simple answer is, tribetimes10 is correct, once a tie has been broken, that settles it, and the rest of the tiebreakers are decided off the tie decision above it.

RE: CAA/Other Opponents
Sounds straightforward to me based on the example.

Looks like Tribe win + Hofstra loss = 3rd seed.

Do I get a prize for arguing the point first without the supporting documentation? That was the logic on which my rebuttal of EvanJ was based. Now we can only hope that it becomes relevant tomorrow. I think that we have a better chance of taking care of our business than Towson knocking off Hofstra.
