I’m referring to timezone bugs, of course. Looking at the verbose run for the 2021 schedule I see what I didn’t before about today’s one MCC game:
San José State 7 at USC 30 on Sep 04, 2021 Stanford 42 at USC 28 on Sep 12, 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
These dates are wrong. No doubt because they start so late it’s past midnight in Greenwich and I didn’t properly localize the datetime object to a west coast timezone. Fix to come.
Today’s UCLA/Fresno State game is a great Mythical California Cup game. If Fresno wins they are in great shape for an undefeated MCC season. UCLA is an 11 point favorite, which is right in line with the Sagarin power rankings. But Fresno might be pretty good… they have won two blowouts against bad teams and played Oregon tough until the 4th quarter in Autzen. I’m surprised the power rankings don’t put them a little higher.
