We need JP to weigh in on this thing.
If they're down to 2 measurements, and one of them is the unknown TVI, it should be easy for him to solve for that if he knows the second.
And the second is net efficiency. Is that a new metric, or was it there last year?

Paging JP...please pick up the white courtesy phone.

They are eliminating... uhhhh... winning percentage?
Same thing I thought right away. I mean why concern yourself with who is actually winning games right? And reducing from 5 factors to 2, and leaving the super-secret P5-favoring TVI? Every February I get really excited counting how many times I can hear the phrase "quality loss". Where's the jerkoff emoji when you need it?

How do you pronounce his first name?
Not sure but...
#12 here “Anyway, the consensus seems to be that his first name is pronounced “JAI-min.” It’s the “D” that’s silent.” Has the same spelling...

Let's have more foxes guard hen houses.

With the way the world is operating right now, it seems possible that the next domino to fall will be Jordan Belfort running the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Any word on the A10 slimming down conference tournaments?

CUSA is looking into ways to reduce travel costs.

The MAC is reducing the first round games and only half the teams make it in basketball tournament. Some sports are having the conference tournaments eliminated for the next 4 years.

This is the most asinine thing I've heard about. One trip to a full conference tournament, isn't what's going to make or break a school financially. If you want to reduce costs, cut the season down to 10 or 12 conference games and get everyone into the tournament.

Common sense and logical thinking have been tossed.

This is from a local paper.
When the NCAA shut down in March, Atlantic 10 officials began thinking of the fall athletic season.
“We are looking at a series of plans,” Atlantic 10 Commissioner Bernadette McGlade said on a conference call with reporters last month. “If we can’t start on time — if there is a delay on getting back to campuses — we’re looking at what that does to the first part of the calendar of the fall schedules, and how that would impact condensing the schedule.”
The Atlantic 10 is considering several ideas:
■Reducing the conference schedule while maintaining the integrity of a regular season.
■Limiting travel, flights.
■Partnering with neighboring conferences for regional competitions and/or filling out schedules.
■If NCAA championships are intact, but there is a loss of a conference tournament, the regular season champion earns the automatic bid.
■The top four teams in regular season advance to a shortened conference tournament.
■In the event the season gets canceled, can the fall season overlap with spring?
“From a contingency standpoint we feel we need to keep everything on the table and up for discussion,” McGlade said.

VCU fans, your AD is mentioned for the Boston College AD spot, but would not say the leading candidate.
Natick is less than 15 miles from BC, Chestnut Hill.
UMass AD is also mentioned but further down the list.

BC Connections
Ed McLaughlin: AD VCU. McLaughlin has been the Rams AD since 2012. Before that was AD at Niagara from 2006-2012. A native of Natick, MA McLaughlin was a graduate of of Boston College in 1995.
