I wonder the whole thinking process.  A balanced schedule is a good thing.  But the rumors on both men & women sides have been that the P5 schools are wanting to schedule less OOC games with non-P5 conferences, which makes it harder for conferences like the MW to schedule good teams.  Just curious how much of what was really behind this--or what other thinking.

They didn't keep to an all teams schedule like they said it was going to be.  There was no rhyme or reason to how they figured out who played who on the women's side and more times than not it was harmful to some teams and beneficial to others.

It's been a long time since any MW team had a legitimate claim to an at-large bid. Since the conference title is the only obtainable prize, it makes sense to make it a fair fight. I still think UNLV deserves an asterisk by their co-championship two years ago because they drew the easiest schedule. The 20-game schedule levels the playing court.

From the beginning they admitted there was a very simple logic to the women's schedule: they ignored it.  They used various logics year to year to play with the men's schedule, and by default the women's opponents were then the same.

I support the change as I considered the unbalanced schedule unfair.

I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

Do something that helps people. Do something of service. It will always make you feel good about your life.

Especially 2 years ago when there were really only 2 contenders and only 1 game at bsu to determine the champ.  No return game at the PIT.
