League Challenge Cup IX - Schedules & Match-ups

Post by frauschlager on 5/20/2015, 9:46 am

Anyone want to make sense of the brackets and cross-bracket play for the League Challenge Cup for this weekend (let's pretend this tournament won't get rained out)?

CLASSIC DIVISION
Bracket A
1) Odyssey 03B
2) One World Soccer 03B (Pflugerville)
3) LFCA 03B - Fowler

Bracket B
1) LFCA 03B - Hunt
2) FC Houstonian 03B (Houston)
3) Solar Chelsea 04B - Farley

In-bracket rankings above are in no particular order. The cross bracket match-ups seem wonky (I never understand why they don't just make every team in bracket A play every team in bracket B when there are 6 teams, ensuring your ranking within your bracket is based on play against common opponents). I would think that the top team in bracket A would play the lowest team in bracket B. With Odyssey and LFCA Hunt set to pair off against each other, that doesn't seem to be the case.

Thoughts?

I never saw Cruz Azul in this tourney.   But I wasn't checking much.  They don't look like they are in it now.

As far as the cross-bracket matchups,  our cross-bracket game seems like it might be a good one, so that's cool.   Let's assume your numbers really rank the teams from 1-3 in each group.   IF you played every team in the other bracket, everyone would play a 1, 2, and 3 team.    The way they have it now, everyone plays a 1, 2, and 3 team.   It's just the team with the same "rank" as you comes from the other bracket.   Or in other words, I have no idea.   Very Happy

Not really expecting to have this whole thing occur.  

Cheers

Numbers - your explanation is better than anything I could have come up with. I suspect the #3 in bracket B (Solar 04) will be in the playoffs, if not the finals (a talented team that has left many an 03B team licking its wounds). This is why I don't understand why you don't just have everyone play the entire tournament cross-bracket so that everyone in your bracket has faced the exact same slate of teams and can be rated accordingly. It also reduces the risks associated with mis-ranking teams (LFCA Fowler's cross-bracket game is against a team that could in fact be the toughest team in the opposite bracket).

*Mistake on the Cruz Azul comment, so I edited my first post. It is actually Ayses, and not the Ayses team I thought it was.
