After yesterday’s action we can all take comfort in the MCC, where some California team will definitely win something. Actually, UCLA might be good. But Stanford and Cal both lost brutal games and USC didn’t inspire any confidence. Fresno State has an outside shot to run the table in the cup games based on how strong they played Oregon yesterday.
The code is improved with better error messages so our current 2021 run looks like this:
San José State 7 at USC 30 on Sep 04, 2021 Cal Poly at Fresno State on Sep 12, 2021 Stanford at USC on Sep 12, 2021 Sacramento State at California on Sep 18, 2021 Fresno State at UCLA on Sep 19, 2021 UCLA at Stanford on Sep 25, 2021 San Diego State at San José State on Oct 16, 2021 Fresno State at San Diego State on Oct 31, 2021 USC at California on Nov 13, 2021 California at Stanford on Nov 20, 2021 UCLA at USC on Nov 20, 2021 Fresno State at San José State on Nov 25, 2021 California at UCLA on Nov 27, 2021 disqualifying insufficient wins (1) from USC disqualifying insufficient wins (0) from San José State No team has enough wins
For the tasks I posted last week we’re looking pretty good:
generalize to virtual conference
- implement optional FCS check for every team
start a github or some repo (is there hg-hub yet?) handle tie games in the data model visually pad the standings properly
- catch the datestrings and parse into datetime objects earlier and manipulate entirely as datetime
prettier printing for game results
The big thing is the FCS check. That will help unlock the full historical run. The world must know, for instance, if Cal won the MCC the year the last time they went to the Rose Bowl.
