OK- So combining the ideas, here's what I have come up with. This is similar to Dave's....but feels a bit less difficult to coordinate for some reason. 2 games a day will be pretty good for the tourney - I like what mduncanhogs said on this thread said about the teams being allowed to be able to develop a bit.
Week 5 12 vs. 12, 11 vs. 11
Week 6 10 vs. 10, 9 vs. 9
Week 7 8 vs. 8, 7 vs. 7
Week 8 6 vs. 6, 5 vs. 5
Week 9 4 vs. 4, 3 vs. 3
Week 10 2 vs. 1, 1 vs. 2 (due to yarnell)
Unless anyone has any issues, and using the criteria for games that mduncanhogs came up with, I propose this schedule.
If a few of you guys OK this, I'll site mail all of the coaches ASAP so the games can be scheduled. This will almost always work as a template, because there will pretty much never be a team below a #2 seed in the Yarnell. If that does happen, adjustments can be made as needed.
Week 5. - Lincoln @ Lees-Mcrae, St. Andrews Pres @ Montevallo
Week 6 - W. Alabama @ Mt. Olive, Anderson @ W. Florida
Week 7 - Drury @ Coker, Erksine @ St. Edwards
Week 8 - Valdosta St. @ Queens (NC), Barton @ N. Alabama
Week 9 - OK Pandhandle @ Limestone, Bel Abbey @ Rockhurst
Week 10 - Incarnate Word @ Longwood, Pfieffer @ St. Mary's (TX)
Note: I also agree that the most fair way to make the schedule is using RPI
