Challenge match-ups for season 67:
As always, if you find you are on the road or at home in back-to-back seasons it is because either your opponent was facing the same situation or your school has an imbalance one way or the other. All but 2 schools are within 1 game variance of home and away (if all of this season's games are scheduled as outlined) so in the future there should be even fewer repeats regarding location. I had to adjust a number of match-ups by 1 spot to avoid repeats of last season (in one case to avoid a match-up from 2 seasons ago for variety and the new match-up was compelling). If anyone expresses an interest I can post the actual rankings according to our seeding formula.
*2/21/12 update: Arkansas did not find a human coach unfortunately. Arizona State did, and they have not indicated they do not want to participate, so hopefully that game will be scheduled. I basically had 2 options - run with the schedule I generated after the tourneys ended (which included Arkansas but left Tennessee out) or revise the schedule to remove simai Arkansas and slot most everyone else "up" one game, which in some cases resulted in repeats of this season, so some teams had to slide 2 slots, but all the humans in both conferences who wish to participate get to. The second option is what is presented here, but it means tougher draws for most SEC teams (based on the 2 season rankings system we use...) I'm not crazy for this option, but it made more sense to let all the humans in then to have someone left out while a SEC sim got in...
