  • Conference USA Is Completely Revamping Its Conference Schedule Setup

    Any thoughts on this coming to the MVC? I think it can backfire just as muhc is improve a teams record.

    There's no need with 10 teams and the full home/away round robin. I'm curious to see how it works for CUSA and I like it as an option if we expand, though.

      Go to 14 and institute this immediately. Brilliant way to play the numbers to get an extra bid. Long term I could see five leagues teaming up and institutiing this together. Imagine if you win the Valley and then your last four games are against the first place teams in the A10, CUSA, WCC and Mountain West, Amazing RPI boost for the top 5 teams in every league.

      I've always been very, very pro expansion but this idea makes me lean that way even harder. Get Murray, Northern Kentucky, South Dakota State and Wright State and get this done (assuming Belmont, SLU and Dayton are all still in the no column)

        It's worth a shot. Worst thing that happens is you still only get one bid.

        The only thing that bothers me is you might only play someone from your conference once. Of course that already happens in the larger conferences.

          I think conferences should be required to have full home/away round robin scheduling in basketball, and should be capped at 11 teams per conference.

              I'm sure the Power 5 conferences would love that idea and start kicking teams out of their 12+ team conferences to accommodate this

                How much better would the bracket busters have been if it was a 2 game event instead of one (with future return date). Sort all the teams in order of RPI. Everyone gets 1 home game and 1 away game (no set home teams at beginning of year).
