Thread: Minnesota Gophers release 2010-2011 Schedule

    Looks like the Gophers goofed up their schedule: Iowa, Penn St, & Wisc are all listed as home duals again while IL and Mich are once again away. The Big Ten rotates home & away duals every year. Also Mich & Mich St are normally scheduled together as back to back away duals on the same weekend, but Mich St is not listed as a dual this year.

    They can also update their 10-11 roster while they're at it.

    I don't think many schools have updated their rosters at this point.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Ohio State vs. Iowa is also at Iowa again this year. I was pretty bummed.

    Is it possible that Neb future Big Ten entry is causing these odd schedulings? I still think Minny's schedule is a mistake that will be corrected.

    I don't know if you're aware of this or not, but Big 10 teams don't wrestle every school in the conference every year.

    Its simple, they don't wrestle Michigan State this year.

    Well, I am aware of that, but generally when you travel to Michigan/Mich St you take advantage of the trip by scheduling two duals for the weekend. Just as when you travel to Indiana/Illinois or NW/Purdue you schedule two duals. This is historically what Minny has done.

    It looks like the entry of Nebraska has caused some turmoil in the scheduling. I've never seen 5 team meets that aren't alternated as home and away, before. But, Michigan has Minny at home on their schedule so it looks like this has been confirmed.

    Nebraska isn't messing anything up.

    They're still a Big 12 school this year, and the schedule for this season was in all likelihood finalized long before Nebraska announced their move to the Big 10.

    Well, perhaps you have some insight into why the schedule has changed so significantly this year?

    You see, for the last eleven years we have wrestled Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Michigan St in a continuous home and away series without exception.

    But not this year. This year Iowa and Wisc are traveling to Minny once again and Minny is again traveling to Michigan, but skipping Michigan St after 11 consecutive years of dual meets.

    There are only two other schools who have a continuous home and away series with Minny for the last eleven years and they continue that tradition this year: Big Twelve schools Nebraska and Oklahoma State.

    So to sum up, Minny's Big Ten schedule is oddly affected this year, but not their meetings with Big Twelve schools.

    Here's a guess, based on information I've heard and read, but have not been able to confirm.

    The B10 scheduling model has changed, with the following criteria;
    - Each team wrestles 8 official B10 matches, 4 home and 4 away (this is unchanged)
    - Each team has 3 or 4 teams it wrestles every year, the remaining teams rotate on and off the schedule (similar to football)
    - The schedule is in 2-year cycles (again, just like football), so each team will wrestle the same B10 teams in consecutive years, one home and one away
    - There's also a change in how weekend (Friday evening, Sunday afternoon) matches are scheduled. In the past, I'd see more 2-match weekends (B10 matches on Friday evening and Sunday afternoon, same weekend), now there's few, if any. Appears they are trying to get each team's home weekend matches on 4 different weekends, maybe to increase attendance?? Does appear to be a cost consequence, as there may be more travel. Not sure.

    So, to answer several questions from the previous poster...
    - Maybe Michigan State is not one of Minnesota's permanently scheduled teams
    - Maybe the Iowa and Wisconsin matches are in Minnesota again because it's the start of a new 2-year cycle. Just guessing, but you should see all the "home" opponents as "away" matches next year, and all the "away" opponents as "home" matches.

    Not sure how the addition of Nebraska will affect the scheduling model, we'll see.
