This thread will be the home of the Phelan MWC vs. Ivy Challenge.
In the interest of simplifying the seeding process for match-ups, I'd like to go to a system inspired by the Phelan ACC-Big 10 Challenge.
Our system will rank teams based upon the average number of CONFERENCE WINS for each team for the previous 2 seasons.
Ties will be broken by average RPI.
Teams will be ranked 1-12 and matched against their like team from the other conference.
If this results in a repeat of last season's challenge, seeds will be flipped as necessary for more variety.
Home and away will be determined based upon last season's venue - if you played at home last season you'll default to on the road.
If both teams played at home/on the road in last season, the home team will be team with fewest overall challenge home games. Ties broken randomly.
