Bracketbuster Games

Still probably still a long shot, but Vermont and Albany both appear to be on the edge of TV games for the Bracketbuster. UVM's win over Stony Brook really helped their RPI, but it will likely drop a bit with the next few games before the TV matchups are announced.

I would like to see a Vermont matchup with Iona, Loyola or Canisius, as that could be a TV/ESPN3 game given their RPI. But the question is how much will the Bracketbuster committee consider geography in this final year of the event.

Re: Bracketbuster Games

UA's RPI jumps to 118 from 130 after this one....if they can keep it up they will get a TV game. Tough task...I know.

Very cool...it is supposed to update throughout the day right? I watched the Purdue/West VA game and that still isn't updated so I was kinda surprised...

Edit: My bad...it looks like the front page is updated but not when you click on a team...that stuff must just get updated once a day.

Correct...the full site refreshes around 3pm daily...the other stuff like real RPI isn't in-depth but is updated constantly. The BB section doesn't updated every day.

Re: Bracketbuster Games

Based on the numbers any idea of who Albany would be matched up against?

Based on numbers through Friday games, looks like it could be Illinois-Chicago or Long Beach St. Considering location, Fairfield and Niagara might also be a possibility.

Re: Bracketbuster Games

Espn has rpi listing on each team page now which I noticed. It is to the right down a little bit. I don't know how fast it is updated.

Re: Bracketbuster Games

Matchups for TV games are announced next Monday January 28. Not sure if that's the same date for all match ups to be announced, I know typically they have been announced on separate dates.

Next two games for UVM will be very important to compete for a TV game. Either way, I think both Albany and UVM will get quality opponents given their RPI and records.

Re: Bracketbuster Games

Likely opponents right now for UVM considering home/road teams, RPI, and proximity would be Canisius and maybe Loyola (MD).

Illinois State would be an interesting match-up, Trey Blue's old team.

Re: Bracketbuster Games

It would be great to see UVM bumped up to face Iona, who will likely get a TV game, but probably too much of a difference in RPI for that to happen. I also wouldn't mind Loyola or even Ohio.

Too bad a team like Detroit couldn't be in the picture. They are fun to watch and will get the big screen coverage on the road.

Re: Bracketbuster Games

I would love for UVM to play someone they have never played before. It seems like our OOC schedule is stuck in the mud and we don't break out an play some new (to us) teams. I would love to see a midwest or west coast swing next year to shake things up. In the immediate future, I do not want to see a Bracketbuster game against a NEC or MAAC team.
