Big news in scheduling

A couple big things came out today with regards to scheduling: first, GW is playing at Virginia Tech, will play a Missouri Valley school in the BB&T, and is trying to get a game with an SEC school. That's all good.

The second is that the A-10 is changing their scheduling formula. They're dividing into tiers for scheduling, meaning means that the better schools will play each other more, and the not so good schools will play each other more. GW is in the top tier, as well as Xavier. The conference is also banning out of conference games against teams with RPIs more than 200, even if the other school is paying for the game. I like the no 200 RPI thing, but not getting paid by other schools is tough. Coach Karl Hobbs and GW AD Jack Kvancz both disagreed with it, with Kvancz saying it's hard to get home and homes with good teams in the Smith Center. I don't mind them being forced to get better opponents though. I guess we'll see.

I've also blogged about this issue over at

We should exchange links on our mainpages, no?
