I'm all for it. There have been far too many of the same teams going to Nationals over the past few years. I hope Carleton goes from the OUA-East this year and maybe Windsor or Ryerson from the OUA-West. If UNB doesn't make it - it's because they lost to a better team in Acadia who hasn't gone in 8 years.

Over the past 5 years, there have only been 13 different teams out of 30 possible invitations (more like 26 invitations as hosts get a repeat spot). There are on average 3 returning teams each year from the previous tournament, so I can see how it looks like the same old thing each year. Only MAN, Waterloo and Calgary are noobs which is not a lot of 'new' blood over the past 5 years.

UNB, UQTR, USask, Waterloo, Alberta, SMU (3 repeats)
UNB, UQTR, McGill, USask, Western, UdeM (3 repeats)
UNB, Alberta, McGill, Western, Calgary, SFX (3 repeats)
SMU, Alberta, McGill, LKD, MAN, UQTR (4 repeats)
SMU, Alberta, McGill, LKD, UNB, Western (3 repeats)
