Sunday Bird’s Eye View Schedule for 1/15 and 1/8

FRI 1/13 (8:15PM)ALL GAMES AT BUSHROD HAVE BEEN MOVED TO WKRC, SAME TIPOFF TIMES, SEE BELOW. Also, we deleted the 4pm ISAH game Team CB vs Boogie Down Eagles because Boogie was not ready.

The gym change was due to a scheduling miscommunication with the BCRC director, who has rented out BCRC this Sunday to another function. I texted him the schedule on Thursday and had to text him again today, 24 hours later, before he told me about the other rental. Maybe I was dead tired last Sunday night when he told me. I honestly don’t remember him telling me and usually this notification is done via text. I have no text message from him saying we couldn’t have it this weekend. So, who knows.

The move to WKRC will cost the league $100 since WKRC is more expensive. I could’ve just skipped this week entirely, but I decided to eat the cost. It is literally a terrible financial decision on my part, because it does not harm the league to move everything back one week, but I just want the greater good to be happy and not have another excuse for people to say I’m this or that even though those people have never met me.

THU 1/12 (1:45PM) — Scroll down and you’ll see the schedule for this Sun 1/15. Below that was the schedule from last Sun 1/8. The following is the description of how I arrived at this schedule, copy/pasted from the Rumor Mill page…

THU 1/12 (1:30PM) — Finished REC-OAK-, which was a pain in the ass… (12:45PM) — Added REC-SF, next up is to finish out REC-OAK+ now that I’ve heard back from Make It Drizzle… (12:30PM) — Added REC-OAK+. Next up: REC-SF… (12:15PM) — Added REC-OAK-. Next up: REC-OAK+… (12:00PM) — Added AAA and AL/NL. Next up: REC-OAKs… (11:45AM) — Added A/R-SJ. Next up: AAA-OAK… (11:30AM) — A/R-SF added, fixed A/R-OAK, next up A/R-SJ… (11:15AM) — A/R-OAK added… (11:00AM) — I hope to get the schedule for this Sun 1/15 done by 2pm today.

Here’s what happens the first 2-3 weeks of scheduling. On 1/8 and 1/15 and to a certain extent 1/22, I’ll “randomly” matchup teams based on who has paid, etc. For these first 2-3 weeks, you really have no idea who you’re playing. You also only know that I’ll be doing my best to put you in your timeframe, given your unknown opponent’s timeframe as a complication as well as gym availability. By 1/22 or 1/29, I’ll have what’s called a season schedule template or ROADMAP in place that has mathematically derived matchups. I will fit those matchups with the matchups that already occurred, so that everyone still ends up with 6 regular season games in this math-driven schedule. Suffice it to say, you’ll need to be aware that you’re flying blind for the first couple weeks. Schedules should be up each Thursday.

Here’s a division-by-division breakdown that I will add to as the day goes by, starting with 6FT-SF/OAK and 6FT-SJ…

6FT-SF and 6FT-OAK: We are going to combine the 6FT-SF (5 teams) and 6FT-OAK (1) divisions. We will have one division of 6 teams. Each team will play each other once for 5 games, then the 6th game will be a repeat based on standings. Each of the 5 SF teams will travel once to the OAK team. During the 6th week, the OAK team will play against an SF team. However, for playoffs, this would mean the OAK team gets to play in OAK in Round 1. After that, it will probably alternate for that OAK team. For SF teams, that means the bulk of your games are in SF, with a 20% chance of an OAK game during the playoffs, every other round. For the first week, I’m planning to have the last team that paid, Eagles, make the first trip to OAK; at least that gets it out of the way for them. PROBABLE MATCHUPS FOR 1/15: Eagles at Beast in Oakland (pending approval of Eagles), Trainwreck vs Below The Rim in SF. PROBABLE BYES: SF Free Agents and Scorekeepers. OUT: OAK Rich’s Rayguns.

6FT-SJ: As explained to all SJ captains, we’re gonna try to regroup this division somehow. More info later.

A/R-OAK: Oops, I screwed up. Some of the teams that paid don’t wanna start til 1/22. Here’s the correction. Grey Goose, Undrafted, and Redhawks don’t wanna start til 1/22. We have Sole, Dream, and Main Event left over. Since Dream is scorekeeping for their spot, let’s give the first game to the teams that have paid hard money: Sole vs Main. PROBABLE MATCHUPS FOR 1/15: Sole Supremacy vs Main Event. PROBABLE BYES: Dream, Grey, Undrafted, Redhawks, Seven Brothers. The following crossed out stuff was the original post which erroneously assumed everyone wanted to start on 1/22: No payment from Seven Brothers yet, so they’re the 7th team and odd team out. I usually like to schedule teams with opposite timeframes first so that we get that complication out of the way asap. PROBABLE MATCHUPS FOR 1/15: Grey Goose vs Sole Supremacy A/R, Undrafted vs Redhawks, Dream vs Main Event. PROBABLE BYE: Seven Brothers.

A/R-SF: As of yesterday, where I wrote that I had to put a stop to the moving variables at some point, we had 6 teams paid and of those 6, 5 teams that wanted to start on 1/15. That means there’s a 5th team out for this Sun 1/15. I usually pick the last team to pay to be that team out. Again, best to matchup teams with opposite timeframes first. PROBABLE MATCHUPS FOR 1/15: The Fam vs Motionz, Full Tilt vs Wolverines A/R. PROBABLE BYES: Braves, Chaos, teams that didn’t pay yet.

A/R-SJ: There are exactly 6 teams paid and wanting to start 1/15. Again, I’ll try to matchup teams with opposite timeframes now, to get it out of the way. PROBABLE MATCHUPS FOR 1/15: Pineapple at Good Shepherd, Monstars at Space Jamz, Anklebreakers at Basketballs Of Fury. PROBABLE BYES: Everyone else who wanted 1/22 start or hasn’t paid yet.

AAA-OAK: There are no teams who have both paid and want to start on 1/15. Bye for everyone, I guess.

AAA-SF: There are no teams who have both paid and want to start on 1/15. Bye for everyone, I guess.

AAA-SJ: As emailed and discussed, we are revisiting the San Jose region, although A/R-SJ will begin.

AL/NL: There are no teams who have both paid and want to start on 1/15. Bye for everyone, I guess.

REC-OAK-: Make It Drizzle said it’s ok for them to be in the afternoon, although there will still be complications down the line. But they played two PM games on 1/8, so I’m forced to keep them in PM. Why did they play then? Because I wanted to be nice and they paid and wanted to play 1/8 before we knew we would have AM/PM. With that we have 8 PM teams and 7 AM teams ready to go. The odd team out in the AM will be the Grim Reapers since they paid the least ($150 down). So here are the PROBABLE MATCHUPS FOR 1/15: Triple Threat vs Inglorious Baskets, Make It Drizzle vs Rawkats (probably at 330p), Straight Gunnin vs Lau Ru Lower, Town Biz at Space Jams OAK, Hefty vs Warriors, WWWD vs Kryptonite, Throwing Up Bricks vs Black Out. The following was the previous post, now out of date: 14 teams paid and ready to go for 1/15. Luckily an even number of teams in both AM (8) and PM (6). Gotta remember not to repeat the games we had from 1/8. Still working on matchups and waiting on Make It Drizzle to see if they can be an afternoon team, since the other two teams that started on 1/8 were PM. That would make scheduling much easier. I’ll come back to this.

REC-OAK+: Only 4 of the 11 teams have paid and of those 4, only 3 want to start on 1/15. Of those 3, Team China paid the latest, so I’ll make the PROBABLE MATCHUP FOR 1/15: Black Catz vs JS23.

REC-SF: 5 AM teams ready to go and paid, 3 or 4 PM teams ready (waiting on word from Boogie Down Eagles if they are ready). I don’t want to mix AM with PM yet because it might add complications fitting into the eventual season roadmap if that gets set in stone. Usually what I do is make the odd team out the team that paid last (Wolverines Rec and Team CB in this case, with Team CB dependent on Boogie). PROBABLE MATCHUPS FOR 1/15: Rothstein vs Illuminati, SFFD vs Frisco, Lay Up City vs Hapa, Team CB vs Boogie Down (maybe). BYES: Wolverines and the unpaid teams.
