Here is where we will post updates, games and schedules.  The Challenge will be one game every season.  I would like the Challenge to be for game 5 if possible but if not the Home coach just have to post the game here so we can keep track.  The Challenges will be for two seasons.  Home and Away and after the 2nd season the matchups will be evaulated just in case the A10 fills up or more coaches want to participate.  Since we have more MWC coaches interested than the A10 and to keep it fair I decided that there will be only 6 games the first couple of seasons unless another A10 coach wants to participate then I will try to make a exception.  I will try to be fair with the matchups and try to have them matchup by prestige and recent success as even as possible.

The MWC will have the Home Field Advantage next season and the A10 will have the Home Field the following season.  That means that the MWC has to challenge the A10 this season and next season the roles will be reversed.  Good luck to all teams.

Hear are the Matchups for the first two seasons.

Utah vs. Dayton
San Diego St. vs. Charlotte
Wyoming vs. La Salle
Texas Christian vs. St. Josephs
New Mexico vs. George Washington
Colorado St. vs. UMass
BYU vs. Xaiver
North Texas vs. Temple
Air Force vs. Richmond

If there is any questions, concerns or debate please use this form to post.  Thanks for your support.

Did BYU get left out because of the A10 having fewer coaches?
1/14/2013 1:07 PM
Yes plow. Hopefully we will get Richmond or Xaiver to join.
2/12/2013 9:41 PM
Brown is in ... Most of the Ivy relish the chance at joining in another season.
2/12/2013 11:05 PM
Boston U is in for the challenge
2/12/2013 11:47 PM
I'd be interested in playing the weakest possible team, since I am starting with a team that went 1-26 last year.

I didn't account for walk-ons. So if you have some you might be a bit higher than what you have on here. The MWC average is 230.6; the A10 average is 221.85; and the Ivy average is 212.8.

Interesting!  How do you calculate sRPI, and what does that stand for? I am about where I would be expected to be, and our 4 schools that have human coaches for the first time this year are at the bottom, which is probably correct. By the way shqipta - congrats on the amazing recruiting class you just had!

It you look at the old Phelan forums for the MWC previews (about 6 months-1 year ago) there are some detailed explanations of how the sRPI works. sRPI just stands for "shqipta RPI".

First off, thanks for doing this shqpta.  I think it could be good to use this for matchups if it accounted for walk-ons.
2/16/2013 2:38 PM
That would make it pretty easy to schedule...everyone plays the other 2 teams they're aligned with.
2/16/2013 2:49 PM
That sounds like a good match-up to me too.
