Not quite. Your scenario (CW,OUA1 and Host) in Pool B puts SMU in pool A with UNB and that won't happen. I can't see the AUS wildcard any lower than #4, however in your scenario SMU would be seeded #5/6 in pool B and host #5/6 in pool A. Should SMU win the AUS and UofA win CW then UNB would rightfully be seeded #4 in pool A and SMU #2 in pool B with OUA1 and host. Lakehead will do anything to stay away from UNB and UofA in that other pool.

I don't think it's always 2,3,6 in pool B. '05 and '06 were 2,3,5 if I'm not mistaken, else they just jigged the numbers to fix the situation.
