During the off-season the SELC expanded to 40 teams, and reorganized its league playoff system to better fit its geographic situation. With additions to Division II the depth of the league appears to be improving. Several D-II programs are making sound improvements, and several of the teams added could make quick contributions to the league. Don't expect a no name to win it all, but we should see improved competition and a great season. Here's a preseason poll and how the divisions may shake out.
